The Obama campaign reacted to Rep. Paul Ryan joining the GOP ticket with the following fundraising email. It smells of panic, and shows that the Democrats are gearing up to paint Ryan as “extreme.”
Paul Ryan will be Mitt Romney’s running mate.
What you need to know right now: This election is about values, and today Romney doubled down on his commitment to take our country back to the failed policies of the past.
Congressman Paul Ryan is best known as the author of a budget so radical The New York Times called it “the most extreme budget plan passed by a House of Congress in modern times.” With Mitt Romney’s support, Ryan would end Medicare as we know it and slash the investments we need to keep our economy growing — all while cutting taxes for those at the very top.
Over the next few days, Romney’s campaign and its allies will tell a very different story about Paul Ryan.
Our job is to make sure Americans know the truth about what Romney’s choice says about him as a candidate and leader, and to stand with President Obama and Vice President Biden at another major moment in this campaign.
Say you’re with them:
Thanks for all you’re doing. More to come.
Obama for America
