If I were Biden, I would be all over how politically and ideologically split the Republican ticket is between Romney and Ryan. And with Romney's mad dash to the center, away from everything that he has been campaigning on up until last week, is even more of a mad dash away from what Paul believes in. I would be asking Paul how it feels to have compromised your character to stand shoulder to shoulder with somebody who is now campaigning on everything that Ryan has spent his life campaigning against.

Focus on jobs, jobs, housing, jobs, jobs, and long term fiscal reforms (both taxes and spending). Fact is everyone's taxes will go up. Just read the CBO reports. And spending reforms will impact military, long-term entitlements and nearly everything else. If question that, just google "CNBC video "Are we rich or poor"? Walker" to see a debate between Walker (from Peterson Foundation) and another gentleman.
