Vice President Joe Biden offered high praise for President Barack Obama during his remarks before the NAACP Thursday, drawing a contrast between the Obama administration and a potential Romney Presidency.
Striking a folksy, passionate tone, Biden tore into Romney’s stances on foreign policy, taxes and health care reform. The Vice President, however, paid special emphasis to what the Justice Department would look like under President Romney.
“Imagine when his senior adviser … is Robert Bork,” Biden said, referencing the Reagan era Supreme Court nominee deemed far too Conservative by Democratic lawmakers. “Imagine the recommendations for who is likely to be picked as Attorney General or the head of the Civil Rights division.”
The remarks carried additional significance considering Romney’s approval of stricter voter ID laws in several states, a move condemned by the NAACP.
Biden’s reception was considerably warmer than Romney’s the previous day. The Republican Presidential candidate at one point received boos after pledging to repeal Obamacare.
