BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says Republican Mitt Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate proves that the GOP ticket stands for the economic ideas championed by House Republicans — ideas Biden and President Barack Obama have long opposed.

Biden says that for Romney, "the Etch A Sketch is gone." The jab is a reference to a Romney aide who suggested during the Republican primary fight that Romney could reset his strategy for the general election much like one would start a new picture on an Etch A Sketch toy.

Biden says Democrats are eager to run against Republican economic ideas. He says they are confident they can win despite persistently high unemployment and a sluggish economy.

Biden spoke Wednesday during a rally Wednesday at Virginia Tech.
