Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan's visit to a Dover Community center was his first appearance since video footage surfaced showing Mitt Romney telling a well-heeled audience at private fundraiser that almost half of all Americans see themselves as victims.
Ryan didn’t address Romney’s comments directly during a town hall meeting in Dover, but he did attempt to clarify where he and Romney stand on what they say are the failures of the Obama administration.
