Mr. Biden used an eastern Ohio car dealership as the backdrop to a speech during which he said Mr. Romney was wrong to criticize the government’s auto industry bailout. He also criticized Mr. Romney’s leadership at Bain Capital, telling the story of a Kansas steel plant that shut down with the loss of hundreds of jobs after Bain Capital bought it.
A company president’s job is to look out for investors, regardless of what that means for jobs.
“But that’s not the job of a president of the United States of America,” Mr. Biden said. “The job is much bigger than that.”
