Obama Targets Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan will be the target of President Obama’s attacks as he hits his first of three campaign stops in Iowa this week. While in Council Bluffs, Monday, Obama will discuss the pending Farm Bill intended to benefit Iowa and other agricultural centers. “He’s one of those leaders of Congress standing in the way,” he plans to say of Mitt Romney’s running mate. “So if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities. It’s time to put our politics aside and pass it right away.” Ryan will also be campaigning in the Hawkeye state this week.
