Team Romney is out with a powerful new ad that contrasts the Obama administration’s attitude towards fiscal discipline with the Romney-Ryan plan to get our economy back on track. Using clips from the debate, the ad pits a serious Paul Ryan discussing the fiscal solvency of this country against a laughing Joe Biden.  At the end (and if it wasn’t self-evident) the ad hammers home the point that the Romney-Ryan plan shows serious leadership. I’m sure Biden would get a kick out of it:



Biden was cracking up during serious discussions throughout the debate, including on the topic of nuclear war. Even Tom Brokaw said, “I just don’t think you should be laughing during a discussion about thermonuclear war with Iran.” Any sane person would have to agree. 

So, who would you rather have a heartbeat away from the presidency?
