WASHINGTON -- Vice President Joe Biden is pouncing on Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney in swing state Ohio, casting him as a corporate raider more interested in making profits than in the needs of workers.

In a speech set for delivery Wednesday in Youngstown, Ohio, Biden strikes hard at Romney, picking up on an attack line set this week in ads by the Obama campaign and by a super political action committee supporting the president's re-election.

Biden casts the race as one between an Obama vision that promotes fairness and a Romney ideology that helps the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

It's a strategy that combines an attack on Romney with a sunny appraisal of the country's future under Obama.
