Ryan: Obama weak on defense in battleground Ohio

LIMA, Ohio - Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says President Barack Obama's attempt to cut military spending is putting Americans at risk overseas.

Ryan on Monday kicked off three days of campaigning in battleground Ohio by the GOP presidential ticket. Ryan campaigned in the town of Lima (LY'-muh) that's home to a tank plant on the government chopping block.

The Wisconsin congressman says gutting the military will embolden enemies abroad. But Ryan didn't tell his audience that he voted for the defense cuts he's now criticizing on the campaign trail.

Ryan and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will campaign together in Ohio on Tuesday and Wednesday. Obama also will campaign in the state on Wednesday.

Recent polls in Ohio show the incumbent Democrat with a slim lead over his Republican rival.
