Paul Ryan Attacks Obama's "Record of Failure"

Architect of the Republican budget hits the ground running.


NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — His selection just hours old, Republican Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, was already tearing into President Barack Obama's "record of failure."

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."
