Biden on Romney: He offers "nothing"

Vice President Joe Biden told CBS News' "Face the Nation" that Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney has no plans to strengthen the middle class.

"This is about the middle class," Biden told anchor Bob Schieffer. "And none of what he's offering does anything."

"All they argue is cut. Get rid of that," Biden said referring to Republican economic policies. "What is the Romney answer? There's nothing."

Schieffer told CBS Evening News host Scott Pelley that the White House has determined Romney will be the nominee and the president and vice president have started "turning up the heat" against the former governor.

Tune in Sunday for the full interview during the first hour-long episode of "Face the Nation." Also appearing on the show are Republican Presidential Candidates Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul. (Read more about Sunday's show)
