Romney said the other day that he hopes Ryan does well tonight even though Biden is an old pro at debating and this is supposedly Ryan's first debate. Paul Ryan HIMSELF even said this week that this is his first debate too. However.........................Ryan has been a congressman since 1998 and has won reelection 6 times. Has Ryan ever debated before? Yes. According to his campaign, he's been in debates no less than 8 times, as well as has spent time on the Congressional floor. Just another thing that Ryan lies about, just like he lied about his marathon times.
