LA CROSSE, Wis. - A day after going toe-to-toe with Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) in a spirited and oftentimes feisty debate, Vice President Joe Biden took the fight to his GOP rival's home state.
Speaking to a crowd packed with 2,000 people at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, Biden tried to follow up on his Thursday night performance. This time, with a particularly direct appeal to women.
"If anyone had a doubt about what's at stake in this election, when it comes to women's rights, and the Supreme Court, I am sure they were settled last night," Biden claimed.
"Congressman Ryan made it very clear that he and Governor Romney are prepared to impose their private views on everyone else. It was made clear last night that they don't believe in protecting a woman's access to health care," he added.
After a flat out warning that the future of Roe v. Wade hinges on the outcome of this election, Biden continued to tear into Congressman Ryan, claiming the House Budget Chairman opposes equal pay legislation and is "holding hostage" the Violence Against Women Act -- which has stalled in Congress.
"If I leave you with no other message today, I want you to remember this one: Barack Obama and Joe Biden are absolutely positively firmly committed to ensuring that our daughters and my granddaughters have the exact same rights and opportunities to control their lives as my sons and my grandsons, exact same rights," Biden said...

If Biden is campaigning in Wisconsin thats a VERY bad sign for the Obama campaign
Heh, heh, heh.
Three weeks out from the election and they’re out playing to the base in a state that hasn’t gone GOP since 1984.
Henry I. Miller, a physician, and the Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at Stanford Universitys Hoover Institution,ASKS:
Dont voters have a right to know whether Biden is ill or merely unlikeable, impulsive and prone to deceitfulness?
Maybe The Marxist really wants to lose. He’s sending Uncle Joe to battleground states.
If he didn't it'd be discrimination, don'cha know.
Exactly, never listen to what they say watch where they go as it will telegraph where the race is closing. For your info Ann Romney was in three key areas of Michigan and Bill Clinton was in Detroit.
He’s not drawing many followers—only about 2000.
What are the crowd numbers for Romney and Ryan? I know they’re much, much larger than that.
Ann Romney in Michigan is a very good sign..they think they can win the state..if Wisconsin was already going to Obama they wouldn’t have had to send dumb ass Biden over there..and Clinton going to Detroit..hmmmm..maybe the internals are showing Obama could lose Michigan
2000 people at a university setting where classes were undoubtedly cancelled for the grand occasion. Yeah that's a real crowd. 'Rat colluders in the whorehouse media risk pulling a muscle trying to spin this shit into ice cream.
After the eye-rolling, NO women will vote for him. We’ve all seen plenty of that, thank you. The only appropriate response is to push teeth down throat.
Yes and they send the best out there to gather up support for Obama in WI.... Old Joe Biden.....
After generating unimaginable excitement, according to the MSM, in the Democrats’ liberal base as a result of his riveting debate performance the night before, Joe Biden can attract an audience of only 2,000 the following day to listen to him speak in La Crosse, Wisconsin (pop. 51,000) at the liberal University of Wisconsin?!
Meanwhile, on the same day, ‘’Thousands show up in support of Romney and Ryan in Lancaster, Ohio’’ (pop. 38,000).
No, no, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews said that was genius. All the kids on Kos and DU ate it up with a spoon!!
What I'd like to know is how big the crowd was BEFORE they packed it...
Lancaster is the seat for Fairfield County with a population of over 159,000. There was an estimated crowd of 6-8,000 there on Saturday.
