Joe Raedle/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday will give his fifth in a series of campaign issue speeches, drawing contrasts with Mitt Romney on foreign policy.

In excerpts released by the Obama campaign, Biden boils down the administration’s record to a bumper sticker slogan.

“If you are looking for a bumper sticker to sum up how President Obama has handled what we inherited, it’s pretty simple: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive,” he will say.

Biden will hit Romney for “counting on our collective amnesia” to return to policies of Obama’s predecessor.

“Americans know that we cannot afford to go back to the future.  Back to a foreign policy that would have America go it alone… shout to the world you’re either with us or against us… lash out first and ask the hard questions later, if at all… isolate America instead of our enemies… waste hundreds of billions of dollars and risk thousands of American lives on an unnecessary war… and see the world through a Cold War prism that is totally out of touch with our times,” the vice president will say.

Biden will deliver his remarks at 10:30 a.m. ET at New York University.
