Transcript for Paul Ryan on Final Presidential Debate 2012: 'I Think Romney Won'
romney demonstrated was lacking. Obviously, I disagree. I think this was a fantastic debate. I think governor romney won this debate. And you know why I think he won it? Americans for the third time got to see a man ready to become a great president. What they got from mitt romney, clear answers. A clear vision for foreign policy. Clear distinctions on how we should go forward in this country. What we got from president obama were mostly attacks on mitt romney. That's not an agenda. And we didn't get an agenda on how we should move our country forward on foreign policy. We got a defensive -- he tried to defend his record. It's a bad record. Turn on your tv. And you see that the obama policies are unraveling before us. Iran's closer to a nuclear weapon. The arab spring is becoming an islamist winter in some countries. And we look weaker across the world. The first polls we've seen from cbs show a 30-point win for president obama. Well, look. I think president obama basically spent half his time attacking mitt romney, not offering a new vision. And what mitt romney said here's what we can do better on iran policy. Here's what we should have done in all of the other areas. And more importantly, I think he did a great job of articulating a vision for america's role in the world, having a strong economy, a strong america at home, a strong military, and being very resolute and certain in defense of our values overseas. You talk about the distinctions. It seemed a lot of on observers tonight that governor romney was seeming to reach out and emphasize what he agreed with president obama. We agree on the decision to get osama bin laden. We agree on the transition in afghanistan. We agree to carry forward the bush administration drone strike policy. But where we do disagree is on the president's handling of iran. We do disagree with his russia policy. We disagree with the devastating military cuts, which make us look weaker, which hollow our military. We believe a strong military at home is strong foreign policy abroad. And we never should have to speak up for freedom, democracy, for equal rights, for women's rights. That's what a good foreign policy does. That's what we saw from mitt romney in this debate, the demeanor and temperament and leader we need. David axelrod of the obama campaign said your state, wisconsin, is in the president's corner to stay. I beg to differ. We won an impressive election in 2010. We won three various recalls. The supreme court race recall. Recall this summer. It's a close state. I feel good about it. I don't think in wisconsin we want to see four more years like the last four years. Congressman ryan, thanks for coming in. The view of the campaign.
