Vice President Joe Biden took the stage at Zorn Arena on the UW-Eau Claire Campus Thursday.
It was Biden's second Wisconsin stop this month, a sign of the state's new importance as an established presidential battleground.
Biden started his remarks by discussing the attack on the American Consulate in Libya.
He reminded listeners that beyond the military, there are others in harm's way, protecting the American way of life every day.
Biden moved onto various subjects including education, health care, foreign policy and jobs, to name a few.
On the topic of jobs, Biden said "We're creating jobs the old-fashioned way. From the middle out, not from the top to the bottom."
Biden said President Obama's plan increases manufacturing jobs by one million.
He coupled jobs with education saying 6 of 10 jobs will soon require higher education.
When it comes to education, Biden said the plan put forth by the Obama Administration will help the U.S. once again become the most educated country in the world.
Biden blasted the Romney campaign and specifically the plan put forth by Mitt Romney's running mate, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan.
Biden told the audience that Ryan's plan to revamp Medicare involves a voucher system. He likened it to coupons someone would trade out for care. Once those coupons are used up, the holder would have to seek help elsewhere.
He said the plan will add to the struggle of the middle class.
Biden talked about the strife overseas and the fact 90,000 troops remain in the battlefield in various countries, primarily Afghanistan.
The Vice President spoke from the heart about why he always speaks so passionately about the U.S. Armed Forces. Biden's son is in the military.
"Ladies and gentlemen I check every single day the casualties. Every single life is important."
Biden said of the injured returning home, America must help them through their recovery.
The Vice President also touched on a topic often brought up by Democrats of the Romney campaign, tax cuts for the rich.
Biden said Romney's plan includes a 2 trillion plan to cut taxes to the highest income families.
Biden wrapped up his speech by riling up the crowd, saying "There is no quit to America."
The Romney campaign was quick to put out a statement following Biden's remarks.
Romney campaign spokesperson Ben Sparks said "Today, Vice President Biden continued to launch hypocritical, discredited attacks, criticizing Mitt Romney for a policy the Obama Administration supported just last year. With a record of failed trade policies that have led to hundreds of thousands of American jobs going to China, it appears that false and misleading attacks are all the Obama campaign has to offer the American people."
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan held a campaign event near Green Bay on Wednesday.
President Barack Obama was last in Wisconsin in February. Romney last visited in August.
