Ryan: Romney won’t ‘duck the tough issues’ on economy
TAMPA, Fla. – Seizing the campaign spotlight, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan accepted “the calling of my generation” to help lead the country in tough times Wednesday night and told roaring Republican National Convention delegates and a prime-time TV audience that Mitt Romney and he will make the difficult decisions needed to repair the nation’s economy.
“After four years of getting the runaround, America needs a turnaround, and the man for the job is Governor Mitt Romney,” the 42-year-old Wisconsin lawmaker declared in what amounted to a debut on the national stage. However, the nation’s attention was divided: He spoke at a convention dogged by Tropical Storm Isaac, downgraded from a hurricane but still inflicting misery on millions along the nearby northern Gulf Coast.
“We will not duck the tough issues; we will lead,” Ryan said.
