Biden calls Romney foreign policy backward-looking

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is calling the foreign policy outlined by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney shallow, ill-informed and dangerous.

Biden says Romney would return the United States to what he called "the past we have worked so hard to move beyond."

In remarks prepared for delivery Thursday at an overtly partisan campaign event in New York City, Biden says that President Barack Obama will gladly stack accomplishments such as killing terror mastermind Osama bin Laden against Romney's rhetoric.

The Associated Press obtained excerpts of the speech Wednesday.

The campaign speech at New York University represents a broad defense of Obama's national security record.

So far, neither Romney nor Obama has made foreign policy a major issue in the campaign.
