ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) – Vice President Joe Biden is picking up on his boss’ new word, telling a crowd in Florida that “Romnesia” must be contagious because it’s spreading to Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.

A day after President Barack Obama used “Romnesia” to describe what he says are Republican Mitt Romney’s changing positions, Biden worked it into his 38-minute speech today in St. Augustine.

Biden told about 950 people gathered in a basketball gym that Ryan is giving a new explanation for the budget he proposed in the House, saying it’s not cutting the budget, but rather slowing its growth.

Earlier, Biden stopped by an Orlando-area campaign office to greet volunteers as part of a two-day swing through crucial Florida.
