Biden: Romney's foreign policy is ‘totally out of touch'

"If you are looking for a bumper sticker to sum up how President Obama has handled what we inherited, it's pretty simple: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive," Biden said.

He said the president had moved to end an unpopular war in Iraq and had passed policies to end water-boarding and other interrogation measures that have been described as torture.

"We don't have to choose between protecting our country and living our values," Biden said.

Unsurprisingly, the Romney campaign disputed the vice president's views. In a conference call held shortly before Biden's remarks, Dan Senor, a Romney foreign policy adviser, accused Biden of perpetuating a "fantasy narrative" about Obama's foreign policy record.
