    Ryan sure can play attack dog. The VP debate moved quickly from Benghazi to talk of Iran, and the candidate continued aggressively on the attack. “When Obama was elected we had enough nuclear material to make one bomb, now they can make five,” Ryan said. “It’s because the administration has no authority … they have watered-down sanctions, stopped sanctions. They say the military option is on the table, but it’s not being viewed as credible. Under a Romney administration we will have credibility on this issue. Biden remained calm at first but then grew more impassioned. “In terms of how close the Iranians are to getting a nuclear weapon … they are a good ways away,” Biden began, adding firmly “We will not let them acquire a nuclear weapon. Period.”
