The Romney campaign released a new ad Saturday night featuring Biden's performance at the vice-presidential debate. The ad shows the contrast in the serious tone of the Republican nominee while he discussed the economic problems faced by the United States and contrasted it with Vice President Biden sitting there laughing and smiling.
The message of the ad is that the current administration is and has simply not been that serious and focused on a solution for the economic challenge faced by the American people.
Ryan says, "We can't keep spending and borrowing like this. We can't just keep spending money we don't have," as Biden is shown laughing and rolling his eyes. “Leaders run to problems to fix problems," Ryan states as the ad ends. "Mitt Romney is uniquely qualified to fix these problems."
Biden provided a distinct contrast to the more somber Ryan during debate and often interrupted Ryans's comments and laughed and dismissed many of the GOP vice presidential nominee's positions.
White House press secretary Jay Carney defended Biden, on Friday, saying that he smiled at Ryan's "hypocritical" criticisms of the administration's policies and that his reactions "demonstrated the passion, wisdom and joy he brings to the job of serving the American people."
