Romney, Ryan Would Return to ‘Reckless Bush Economic Policies’

The Obama campaign responded to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s choice of Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate by saying the ticket would take the U.S. back to “the reckless Bush economic policies that exploded our deficit and crashed our economy.”
