Just because Mitt Romney won the first debate doesn't mean he's above playing the expectations game for his running mate. In an interview with CNN Tuesday, Romney said Paul Ryan is going up against a much more experienced debater in Joe Biden this week.
"I don't know how Paul will deal with this debate. Obviously, the vice president has done, I don't know, 15 or 20 debates during his lifetime. He's an experienced debater," Romney said. "This is, I think, Paul's first debate. He may be wrong. He may have done debating in high school, I don't know. But it will be a new experience for Paul."
"But I'm sure he'll do fine," Romney added.
