-- turning back to politics joining us now live from Danville Kentucky the site of tomorrow's vice presidential debate.
Senator Ron Johnson member of the senate budget and appropriations committees stop supporter of the vice president.
Nominee congressman Paul Ryan fellow Wisconsin bank and strong supporter of governor.
That -- good to have you with a senator.
Well Lou -- are -- doing well I'm doing great and a lot riding on this debate tomorrow night.
He's it's pretty nimble on on the budget do you think he's ready to.
To do as well as the governor did and his inaugural against President Obama.
Well I think so let's face today -- mean that nobody knows more about federal budget -- Paul Ryan does.
And nobody has put forward more serious proposals the -- all right -- been governor Romney.
And -- sorry -- our analysis expect this be news evening must face it.
A vice pregnant.
President Biden is no slouch in these things either he's been around Washington for forty years but is there ever a problem -- because you know the same problem that their present Obama had.
Always really -- -- is empty rhetoric.
And he's got a record that is almost impossible.
I was say it is impossible to defend so I think Vice President Biden you may -- -- he's -- have a tough time tomorrow or are.
-- -- everybody these these these poll numbers showing their favorability ratings and -- are unfavorable.
Congressman -- doing very well.
Voters split the 44% with a favorable view 44% unfavorable.
-- for the vice president 51% view him unfavorable that we use all that negative.
And 39% favorably -- -- congressman Ryan.
As quite an advantage a modest of management and advantage.
I don't know -- level influence.
The outcome but I think it's still going to be all about performance.
And -- that you know the last thing I remember is Lloyd Bentsen saying -- today well you know you're no Jack Kennedy.
And it turned out that Lloyd Bentsen was no vice president either because it just didn't matter.
Will this thing -- -- substantively.
To the outcome.
Of the presidential election.
Well I think I think it'll be important evening -- it's gonna be really good opportunity for Paul Ryan to show America first -- -- What are -- nice and have really a wonderful human being he has you know.
That his level of integrity and intelligence and is now is about the budget.
And let's face -- -- which we are facing a very predictable fiscal crisis in this nation.
And the reason I was so excited when governor Romney picked Paul is not not only do I -- on this is that fine human being.
He also his actually put forward real solutions.
And that's sort of critically important nowadays when when America is -- for leadership.
Which this president simply has not pres Obama simply has not provided that leadership.
And Paul has been providing that leadership and I think that's what America saw with governor Romney last Thursday as well as somebody who had a command presence.
And somebody who's willing to lead this nation offer real solutions so -- now is -- revealed helped craft the legislation.
He has good really -- in congress unlike President Obama Paul has those relations in congress to help people legislation passed.
I -- that's -- critical difference.
Will -- be able to.
Do as well let's say scores well we'll be able to post a historic victory.
Or over Vice President Biden as governor Romney did over President Obama will you have that kind of strong -- do you expect.
Are giving -- -- you're again -- the expectations senator.
Cross IR RD said that did Joseph Biden's been around long time -- he's quite the talker.
But just doesn't have a whole lot of material to work with it's going to be impossible for.
Vice President Biden to defend you record of failure -- you wanna metric -- failure in this administration.
Median household income has decline by 4500.
Dollars during this administration.
And and here's a real kicker that's occurred during the Obama recovery.
The one thing people don't really realize this is the recession hit pretty well bottomed out.
By the time President Obama really started serving.
Wheeler lost point 7% of GDP the third quarter -- growing.
I've got my own merit and we got 23 million Americans -- -- work.
Oh on a -- -- -- part time.
Or have given up that's to me the most telling metric -- ball.
Senator I thank you very much -- I'm sorry.
I sort of that is a huge metric.
-- as a huge -- of the failure right.
Senator I appreciate you taking the time we wish a lot of locked and and enjoy -- enjoy can talk is all.
I will have a.
