Biden to Open Obama Attack against Romney 'Chest-Thumping'

Vice President Joe Biden plans to deliver a speech in New York City on Thursday that Obama campaign officials are portraying as the opening salvo of a tough critique of what they consider Mitt Romney's extreme positions on foreign policy during the primary season, National Journal has learned. The speech, said one Obama official, will focus on the former Massachusetts governor's "chest thumping and empty rhetoric with no concrete plans to enhance our security or strengthen our alliances." 

The Biden speech is expected to foreshadow a theme of the fall campaign, during which Obama officials hope to portray Romney as someone whose irresponsible rhetoric and lack of clear, thought-out policies could possibly pull a war-weary nation back into conflict.
