Exeter, New Hampshire (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden's campaign attacks on Mitt Romney continued Thursday in the battleground of New Hampshire, a state Biden and President Barack Obama won in 2008 but where Romney made significant inroads during the GOP primary in January.
In a campaign speech in Exeter – a symbolic choice since Exeter claims to be the town where the Republican Party was founded – Biden slammed Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and all but certain Republican presidential nominee, as favoring tax breaks for the wealthy at the cost of important national investments.
(CNN) – The vice president called it a "BFD," so why no celebration of the health reform law's two year anniversary, Sarah Palin asked President Barack Obama in a Friday post to her Facebook account.
"Mr. President, you're conspicuously absent from the 2-year anniversary of your 'greatest accomplishment' (described by your VP as "a big f***ing deal")," the former Alaska governor wrote.
(CNN) - In his remarks later Thursday at the United Auto Workers Local 12 Hall in Toledo, Ohio, Vice President Joe Biden will mention the Republican candidates by name, per a senior Democratic official.
This is a departure for Team Obama. To date, they have stayed away from outright combat by routinely declining to name the GOP candidates. Now the president's closest surrogate is dropping the fig leaf.
(CNN) – Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum on Friday dialed back on particular criticism of President Barack Obama, saying that his terming of Obama as a "snob" was a "little over the top."
"It was a strong term, probably not the smartest thing but you know what I don't give prepared talking points speeches written by other people," Santorum said in an interview on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." "I got a little passionate there and I used a harsher word than I normally would but the point was government shouldn't be dictating to people what they do."
(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden ramped up his criticism of GOP presidential candidates on Monday, telling a crowd at a fundraiser in Florida that Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich were woefully out of touch with economic reality.
"Mitt Romney says the best way to deal with foreclosures is to let everything hit the bottom," Biden said at a fundraiser in Tallahassee. "No, no, no, no – by the way, from purely a dollars and cents standpoint, he could get ready to argue that, that's right out of the business school manual. But guess what? We're not reorganizing and purchasing companies, we're trying to rebuild a country."
(CNN) - As Republican presidential candidates monitored vote returns from Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, Vice President Joe Biden slammed the contest's projected winner as out of touch with middle class Americans.
Speaking to New Hampshire voters via teleconference, Biden took specific aim at Mitt Romney, saying the former Massachusetts governor was more concerned with wealthy businesses than middle class workers.
Decorah, Iowa (CNN) – Vice Presidential nominee Condoleezza Rice? Newt Gingrich considered the idea when a woman told the GOP presidential candidate she’d like to see the former secretary of state debate Vice President Joe Biden.
“I would say that that would be about as great a mismatch of knowledge versus ignorance as we’ve seen,” Gingrich told a crowded basement at Mabes Pizza on Tuesday night.
Davenport, Iowa (CNN) - One week before the GOP presidential candidates face off in the Iowa caucuses, Mitt Romney took the fight to Vice President Joe Biden in a speech the campaign billed as his closing argument Tuesday.
"You frankly have to feel sorry for Joe Biden," Romney told a standing-room-only audience in Davenport, where many chuckled at the mention of the gaffe-prone vice president. "I mean, four years ago he warned us about Barack Obama. Turns out he was right."
Concord, New Hampshire (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden will visit the first-in-the-nation primary state Thursday to file for President Barack Obama's candidacy in the state's presidential primary, according to the New Hampshire secretary of state's office.

(CNN) – For the first time in years, "Monday Night Football" viewers did not hear Hank Williams Jr.'s intro "Are You Ready for Some Football?" after ESPN pulled the song from the broadcast following remarks Williams made about President Barack Obama.
In an appearance on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" Monday morning, Williams referred to a June golf game with Obama and House Speaker John Boehner on the same team, against Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, as "one of the biggest political mistakes ever."FULL STORY
