Flashback: Paul Ryan Laughs at Debbie Wasserman Schultz During CNN Battle

With Saturday’s announcement of Rep. Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s pick for vice president, here’s a flashback to 2010 when Ryan and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) appeared together on CNN to discuss the GOP’s then-proposed “Pledge to America.”

Recall that Republicans were swept into the House of Representatives during the midterm elections less than two months later.

For her part, the Democratic National Committee chairwoman said Saturday a Romney-Ryan ticket is “sure to take us back and repeat the same catastrophic mistakes that got us into the mess we found ourselves in in the first place.”
