The Republican vice presidential candidate has finally spoken up on’s outstanding debate performance. He compared Obama’s challenger to former President , saying that finally the Americans saw the "real Romney" instead of what Obama’s campaign had been portraying.
Paul Ryan, to whom Wisconsin was home, addressed the crowd in Milwaukee Saturday evening, asking the 200 hundred people gathered there just one thing, "Did Mitt Romney not knock it out of the park the other night in Denver?"
"I was so excited to see that because I was thinking to myself, finally people are seeing the guy we know. Finally - I mean didn't you kind of think of Ronald Reagan when you were watching that?" Ryan said to a cheering crowd, according to a report by ABC News.
One woman donor yelled that she was thinking of him during Romney’s debate. Ryan thanked her and said that Romney’s performance Wednesday night was a proof that the man millions of Americans were seeing was a man of principles and the one who has the ability to take out the nation of its difficult times.
"A person who wasn't afraid to defend the free enterprise system and basically make the case that the American system of freedom and free enterprise has done more to help the poor, more to help people rise up, more to create opportunity than any other economic system ever designed and why on earth would we want to trade it in for what we have in Europe?" Ryan said.
The Romney campaign has mentioned the presidency of Ronald Reagan several times so far and the mere mention of his name has always fired up the crowd for the Romney-Ryan ticket. A Republican hero, Reagan also reminds people of the 1980's election, when the conservative won the race against incumbent President Jimmy Carter.
Ryan also mentioned Wisconsin’s Gov. Scott Walker, who successfully defeated the attempted recall this summer, allowing him to not just keep his job, but also the state legislature, remaining Republican. Ryan said this would allow Romney to get a strong hold in the state and win the election.
"Wisconsin went for Ronald Reagan in 1984 and it has not gone Republican since," Ryan said. “Look what happened in the recalls, we know it's within our power, we know it's within our abilities. In 2012, let's send our 10 electoral votes to send this country on the right track, let's get this done."
