Today on “State of the Union,” top campaign advisers to both candidates argued over the selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as Romney’s running mate, attempting to draw stark contrasts between the policies of both parties. Romney adviser Ed Gillespie told Candy, “The message was that this is a big election, and it is about big issues, and it needs to be serious. …Picking Paul Ryan says we are going to choose someone here who has a record of taking on the tough issues, of facing the challenges that we confront as a country and providing solutions and answers to those things." President Obama’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod called Ryan’s views “quite extreme.” "Congressman Ryan is a right wing ideologue, and that's reflected in the positions he's taken,” Axelrod said.
