Biden: GOP ticket running 'con game' of moderation

LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden says presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, are running a "con game" on voters, trying to them into thinking the Republican ticket is more moderate than it is.

Biden is pointing to Romney's changing positions on tax cuts, Iraq and other issues.

Biden tells a crowd of 1,200 people at Lakewood High School outside of Cleveland that the GOP ad on Jeep moving jobs out of Ohio was "pernicious" and a sign Romney does not have the character to be president.

The vice president says President Barack Obama "does not engage in deception. He says what he means and means what he says."

Biden says average people don't expect government to solve their problems, but "to understand" their struggles.
