Ryan: GOP won't spend 'four years blaming other people'

Mitt Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), on Monday accused President Obama of failing to lead the nation out of its economic slump, and vowed the GOP ticket would not dodge issues such as jobs and the mounting federal debt if it wins in November.

"We are not going to duck the tough issues and kick the can down the road. We are going to lead," Ryan said to nearly constant applause in a send-off rally in his home town of Janesville, Wis., just a day before Republicans are expected to nominate the Romney-Ryan ticket in Tampa.

"We are not going to spend the next four years blaming other people for problems," he said. "We are going to take responsibility."
