Paul Ryan says Obama's record worse than Carter's

WESTLAKE, Ohio (AP) -- Paul Ryan says America isn't better off after nearly four years of President Barack Obama's leadership. And for a second straight day, the Republican vice presidential nominee linked the Democrat to former President Jimmy Carter.

Ryan campaigned in the Cleveland area Tuesday, the first day of the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina.

Ryan says Obama will say a lot of things when he speaks Thursday night in Charlotte, but that he won't be able to convince voters that they're better off now than they were four years ago. He says Obama's record is worse than Carter's when the Georgia Democrat was president.

The Wisconsin congressman also says Obama is more concerned about the next election than the next generation.
