Biden accuses Romney, Ryan of "Romnesia" in St. Augustine

Vice President Joe Biden pulled no punches at a campaign stop in St. Augustine on Saturday, accusing his opponents of contracting 'Romnesia,' a new term the Obama campaign has coined to describe what they believe are flip-flops by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

"I think he's a very sincere gentleman.  I honestly believe he's very sincere.  I think he represents the president perfectly," said one voter, Rand.

Biden knocked Romney on his plans to repeal Obamacare and prevent women from having access to contraceptives.  He told the crowd not to listen to the GOP when they say that America is in a downward spiral.

"America is coming back, and we're not going back.  We're moving forward.  How could they [Romney and Ryan] have such a profound misunderstanding of the American people?"

Biden told the audience that the Romney/Ryan policies would put more money into the hands of the already wealthy and gut the middle class, referring several times to Mitt Romney's now infamous "47 percent" comment.

"Folks, Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan are dead wrong.  America is neither dependent nor in decline and I've got news for them.  Gentlemen, it's never, never, never been a good bet to bet against the American people."

While the majority of people have already made up their minds about who they'll vote for, some are still deciding or have only just decided.  Judy James says it was Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention that gave her that final push to get on board with Obama.

"When he laid it out I mean I followed what he was saying and it just made sense to me because I hadn't really thought about it in those ways about how even Bill Clinton couldn't have fixed it that fast.  I think we're a country that expects things to happen overnight."

The St. Augustine Police Department said 955 people showed up to Biden's rally.
