-- -- we continue our series running with Romney with a two for one deal.
Because of Mitt Romney accuses House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential nominee he gets the man.
And his message a message that has already been under the microscope.
The next president of the United States ladies and gentlemen -- Run -- -- and -- top Democrats talk about Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan's budget that has already passed the Republican House you might think Mitt Romney has already chosen him to be on the ticket.
The Romney Ryan plan the Romney.
Ryan budget the Romney Ryan budget and governor Romney hasn't exactly shied away from the Ryan budget line.
I applaud that actual piece of work and very much needed this is a person who has led a very clear path for our party and for our nation.
-- probably is not just handing out complements.
Many analysts say he's making a decision by openly talking about the Ryan plan.
That is clearly seen by Democrats as a fruitful line of attack for them in the -- you campaign with Mitt Romney in Wisconsin.
Spent a number of days on the trail with -- He embrace your budget.
Is that a full embrace.
That we do I never expect.
People to embrace every little decimal point every little spreadsheet line item but clearly he's embraced the kinds of reforms that we're talking about that are necessary.
To save and strengthen Medicare to prevent our debt crisis from occurring to reform the tax code to get jobs back in the economy and -- stop all the crony capitalism stop the corporate welfare what the president is -- he's saying I want to take more money from hard -- Americans from successful small -- -- -- to Washington that doesn't grow the economy that -- cronyism.
And we reject that you.
Heard people say I know that it Mitt Romney fully embraces your budget and schools goes whole hog and holds up.
Paul Ryan as an example this is what we're gonna do that there is of vulnerability and some analysts' minds that.
He welcomes a tax.
What do you think of that I.
I hear this all the time look.
I heard this when I put my -- -- out in the first place.
It did do we want to fix these countries problems or not.
Mean that the choice and all analysts seemed to -- the choice of Ryan by Mitt Romney would be a bold line if you pick Paul Ryan you're going full Monty to take it on the budget in the deficit.
Regardless of all the pain that that.
That that would create.
We're gonna we're gonna and take your cough syrup America that could be the kind of campaign.
Did they could work but it would be a very very different kind of campaign and I've seen him since -- in modern times.
Paul Ryan budget genius are very important in the congress good guy around as close to home talks a lot -- the downside is that you know you nominate Paul one you take a real player out of the congress and to.
You're gonna re litigate the Ryan plan which has policy advantages but some political baggage.
Morning radio when you hear that you're on a short list for Mitt Romney.
What goes through your mind.
You know I'm pretty DC.
Doing my job I hear that.
If they if they asked me to consider then I'll consider it but that's months away from that kind of decision being made is as far as I know I like my job I think I can make a big difference doing what I'm doing because I think we have a fiscal crisis on -- horizon and I feel like I've played a pretty constructive role in trying to prevent that from happening.
From marketing consultant to political aide.
To speechwriter for the late congressman presidential candidate and vice presidential nominee Jack Kemp.
In 1998 Ryan was elected congressman of Wisconsin's first district when he was just 28 years old.
And then house Republican leaders realized Ryan was a budget lives they moved him up the seniority line quickly vaulting him over twelve more senior Republicans on the budget committee to -- -- order in 2011 at the age of 41.
Ryan became the youngest chairman of the House Budget Committee call which brings us back to his budget plans Ryan sees it as a pivotal point in the 2012 election.
We knew that if we offer solutions.
That they were gonna demagogue those solutions.
It's but we feel that we have a -- any legal obligation that if we don't like the direction the president is taking the country we should do something about it.
More importantly we have a law that says congress has to -- pass a budget every year by April 15.
We think we should follow the law the senate.
For three years has decided not to follow that law the president has given us four budgets and never in one of those budgets as it.
Proposed any solution to this fiscal crisis to what they decided to do -- offer no solutions of their own -- for Republicans are for hours then divide distort and distract.
The president was out talking about student loans he says your budget cuts back on pell grants and essentially said.
That Republicans are turning their backs on young people well I think every week we're gonna see the president -- to various groups in this country in order to try and build an election coalition to try and win this election.
-- pell grants for example.
Dramatic increases in spending.
Over the last number of years and what we've seen as a corresponding dramatic increase in tuition inflation.
What our budget does is it -- progress where they are.
We just don't sign up for the dramatic additional increase of the president's proposing and apparently we're not increasing spending as much of the president proposes that's considered a huge cut so.
Is he wrong when he says the -- yes he's wrong all the time he's.
These things we're used to that everything the president says about budgets of modern numbers we're used to him telling things that are -- dramatic.
Distortions at times Democrats have taken attacking the Ryan budget to new levels.
Using this -- of someone who looked a lot like Paul Ryan pushing an old woman in wheelchair over a cliff in the New York congressional race.
And then there was president Obama's you'd like to Paul Ryan to -- audio text as he lambasted Ryan's budget.
-- really serious about.
Plan that claims to reduce the deficit by spending a trillion dollars on tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires but you're ready for Mitt Romney.
-- you pushing the grandmother over the course.
-- I've been having these ads running it's been for years so we're all used to this another looming Specter could change Wisconsin's role in the election and Romney's calculations on picking Ryan -- a running mate.
The State's Republican governor Scott Walker faces a recall election June 5 -- or proposing them passing a law that -- most.
Public workers of collective bargaining rights and setting major protest at the Statehouse last year.
If walker prevails and that means -- Wisconsin could be in play this fall.
And that would that would that would -- -- to some degree raise Ryan's profile on this if walker loses in I suspect it will diminish -- Ryan gets back to Wisconsin and his family as much as he can.
Often rushing straight to the airport after house votes to get home to his wife -- and three children if there's something that people.
Don't know about you what is.
Goes well a lot of things they don't know -- -- -- come -- mom and dad and my husband like to hunt like the picture of the outdoorsman.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And when -- -- region but suddenly instituted a you get home -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm actually gonna kind of my office here I don't have a place out here in DC I'm here for days a week after the last vote.
I had a home -- -- -- -- keep my truck -- drive home and beyond just like an elegant meals and you make the record from the capitol to the airplane -- I've got that down to a science.
It's getting from voting to the flight to get home for dinner.
On the go for dinner tonight.
He's -- cheese head.
A loyal Green Bay Packers fan photos of Lambeau Field decorate his office.
And while there aren't too many photos of -- on overseas trips he's made quite a few of the mostly to the Middle East.
President Obama and Vice President Biden our party signaling that they're going to run in part on their foreign policy record.
-- great with me because it's not a very good one.
We'll look at their successes there aren't any for some -- the -- says the -- -- -- that didn't work out too well look at -- they're still moving toward a nuclear -- look at what's going -- in -- -- still -- -- people look at the fact that we -- the green -- of the green revolution in Iran where there was a chance.
After the death of that the re election was rigged there was a chance to speak to the freedom movement in Iran and the president was silent.
So to me.
They've had a terrible foreign policy record the world is far much more dangerous than it ever was before.
And at that time we have all these new dangerous threats on the horizon they wanna go to our military -- makes no sense to me how big do you think foreign policy will play in general I think it's going to be about economics I think it's about the economy we can't keep spending money we don't have we can't keep a government that borrows forty cents of every dollar it spends that's.
Threatening our economy today and it's really threatening our children's future we have a big choice ahead of us and we're really sort of as a country at that proverbial fork in the road and the decisions our government's going to make in the next couple of years.
Will listen to trajectory of America for a generation.
