Ryan on debates: No one event makes a campaign


9/30/12 9:27 AM EDT

Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan is doing his part to keep measured expectations for Mitt Romney ahead of Wednesday night's debate.

"Well, we're running against an incumbent president. We're running against an incumbent president with incredible resources. But more importantly, I don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign," said Paul Ryan said in an interview aired on “Fox News Sunday”. "Look, President Obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. The man's been on the national stage for many years, he's an experienced debater, he's done these kinds of debates before. This is Mitt's first time on this kind of a stage."

As for a debate message, Ryan said Romney would focus on creating a clear choice between the two candidate's policies: "Stagnation versus growth, dependency versus opportunity and upward mobility."

Fox host Chris Wallace pointed out this was a shift in messaging from being a "the referendum on Barack Obama's record," to which Ryan called it a new "phase."

"It's not a change in strategy, it's a phase of the campaign we've now entered into. Because I think it's important. The president is trying to paper over his problems," Ryan said.
