Paul Ryan Says President Obama Has A Record Of Failure
Just hours after officially assuming the role as running-mate of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Vice-President candidate Paul Ryan ripped into President Obama.
Republican Mitt Romney’s running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, wasted little time tearing into President Barack Obama on Saturday, lambasting the Democrat’s “record of failure” just hours after being named to the GOP ticket.
Moving into a role as Romney’s chief attack dog, Ryan declared Saturday that the nation under Obama’s leadership is struggling through the “worst economic recovery in 70 years.”
“No one disputes President Obama inherited a difficult situation,” Ryan said, standing at Romney’s side for the first time as the Republican presidential ticket on the USS Wisconsin, a retired battleship. “And, in his first two years, with his party in complete control of Washington, he passed nearly every item on his agenda. But that didn’t make things better.”
Romney selected the 42-year-old Ryan, a seven-term congressman, from a short list that included Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.
Ryan is the architect of a conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending. His selection immediately thrusts those budget plans into the forefront of the presidential contest.
Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, called Ryan “the architect of the radical Republican House budget” proposal and said the plan “would end Medicare as we know it.”
Sounds like Money Mitt has found his perfect match. SMH.
