CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Vice President Joe Biden returned to Charlotte Tuesday, just one month after the city hosted the Democratic National Convention.

Biden is criticized Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for proposing policies that Biden says would cut taxes for millionaires and raise them for middle-class families.

Biden spoke around lunch time to a crowd of 1,050 at the Music Factory to help stump for the Democratic Party's reelection bid.

By comparison, Biden says President Barack Obama's plan asks the wealthy to pay only a little bit more in taxes.

Romney's campaign has said claims by Obama's campaign about Romney's tax plan are false.

Separately, Biden said he expects Obama to be re-elected because he will win North Carolina for a second time.

On a mention of opponent Romney, the crowd booed loudly, to which Biden quipped, We don't need your boos. We need your work.

Biden was a little late to his rally after severe weather delayed Air Force Two from landing at Charlotte Douglas Airport.

Air Force Two was approaching Charlotte Douglas when the pilot abruptly pulled up and circled for about 35 minutes because of thunderstorms in the area.

The White House called the tactic a missed approach and said the pilot of the Boeing 757 landed on the second attempt with no problems.

Biden made a raw appeal to Virginia's middle class last week, blasting the GOP presidential ticket for pushing what he says is a blueprint for boosting middle-income taxes while giving trillions in tax breaks to the rich.

Biden said Romney and Paul Ryan represent a radical and obstructionist brand of conservatism that would sacrifice education and Medicare to help the wealthy.

Look, folks, this is not your father's Republican Party, Biden said, portraying Romney as out of touch with ordinary people and Ryan as willing to wreck the nation's finances to protect the wealthy from tax increases.

First lady Michelle Obama spoke in Durham and Greenville two weeks ago as the Obama campaign seeks to win a state it narrowly won over Republican John McCain four years ago.
