Following Mitt Romney's debate win over Barack Obama on Wednesday, a conservative political scientist and historian says the bar has been set high for Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan in his upcoming debate against Joe Biden.

Even before Mitt Romney's performance in the Denver debate, many political pundits believed Paul Ryan would have little trouble debating Vice President Joe Biden, whose frequent gaffs have been an embarrassment for the Obama campaign.

Dunn, Charles (Regent Univ.)Dr. Charles Dunn, distinguished professor of government at Regent University's Robertson School of Government, expects great things from Ryan.

"People expect Ryan, who's brilliant, to have a brilliant performance," he states. "Ryan should win against Biden -- and [he] should win easily."

But he warns Republicans to be careful.

"We have to exercise a little caution here. Because of the success of Governor Romney, that will increase expectations for the performance of Mr. Ryan. And already, of course, there's a low bar of expectations for the vice president."

The October 11 VP debate at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, will focus on foreign and domestic policy.


Ryan: Obama trying to 'muddle and confuse' voters

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Vice-presidential hopeful Paul Ryan told supporters in President Barack Obama's home state their contributions will help Republicans define the "very clear choice" for voters in the final weeks before Election Day.

Speaking at a fundraiser in suburban Chicago on Sunday, Ryan said the president is trying to "throw the kitchen sink" at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and "muddle and confuse" voters. He also accused Obama of distorting Romney's record and said the president's campaign is outspending the GOP ticket on television advertising in some key states.

Ryan told attendees their support will "give us the resources we need to make sure he doesn't get away with it."

Tickets to the event at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare ranged from $2,500 to $75,800 per person. The campaign said about 260 people attended.
