OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Vice president Joe Biden is telling Wisconsin voters that America is not in decline and that the Republican presidential ticket is in denial about the improving economy.

Biden spoke to about 1,000 people at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh on Friday. Later in the day, he drew about 1,500 people at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha.

The vice president peppered his speeches with familiar criticisms of Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. He said Romney "meant what he said" when Romney contended that 47 percent of Americans see themselves as victims entitled to government assistance.

Biden said, quote, "I don't recognize the country he's talking about."
Biden also criticized Romney for not condemning the recent remarks about rape and pregnancy made by Indiana's Republican Senate candidate, Richard Mourdock.
