In his first campaign speech, Vice President Joe Biden attacked President Barack Obama’s potential GOP rivals for “protecting the privileged.”

“Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, these guys have a fundamentally different economic philosophy than we do. Our philosophy, ours is one that values the workers in the success of a business,” Biden said in Toledo, Ohio, speaking to the United Workers Local 12.

“It values the middle class in the success of our economy. Simply stated, we’re about promoting the private sector, they’re about protecting the privileged sector. We are for a fair shot and a fair shake, they’re about a no rules, no risks and no accountability.”

Two days before Biden’s campaign speech, Obama flew to Dayton, Ohio with British Prime Minister David Cameron for an NCAA March Madness game and returned to Washington, D.C.
