Vice President Joe Biden swept through the Granite State Tuesday with stops in Manchester, Peterborough and Keene.

The visit was his fourth to New Hampshire this year to campaign for President Barack Obama ahead of November’s election.

Speaking to a crowd of almost 500 people at Keene State College Tuesday afternoon, Biden first defended Obama’s administration and the tough decisions it has had to make after the economy tanked in the fall of 2008 and then spoke to what Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s approach would be.

Biden was introduced by state senator Molly Kelly and was greeted by some supporters in the balcony who loudly shouted “Yes we can.”

“You all know what we inherited,” Biden said, “And what Gov. Romney’s line of argument is. He says that since we’ve gotten in office things have gotten much worse. He says our policies are the problem. Well as former senator Pat Moynihan, a good friend of mine, used to say, ‘Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. They are not entitled to their own facts.’ I’d like to just talk about the facts for a moment.”

Biden then asked the crowd to take a look at a job loss and job creation graph campaign staff had passed out to the crowd before Biden arrived.

Biden said before any of Obama’s policies took effect the country had lost almost 8 million jobs.
