Democrats Weigh in on Ryan Pick

Romney's VP pick is being portrayed as "extreme".


Democrats and the Obama campaign are poised to vigorously portray Mitt Romney's selection of Rep. Paul Ryan for vice presidential nominee as a toxic choice and politically extreme.

As Romney formally announced Ryan in Norfolk, Va., deputy Obama campaign manager Jim Messina blasted out an email statement casting the Republican ticket as a potential disaster for the middle class and seniors.
