SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) -- Potential Republican vice presidential pick Paul Ryan is blaming President Barack Obama for the nation's lackluster job growth and what he calls unchecked spending and debt in Washington.

The House Budget Committee chairman said in a speech Tuesday in California that the Democratic president wants to take the nation further in the wrong direction.

The Wisconsin congressman is among the Republicans considered possible No. 2 picks for presumptive nominee Mitt Romney.

Ryan told a sold-out audience at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library that Americans are worried about the future and the country must be put back on track.

Romney is expected to make a pick before the Republican National Convention in August. Other possible choices include Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

    This guy really needs to go away. He sold out a long time ago. A mere puppet who's strings are being jerked on by the likes of the Koch brothers and the other thugs that own the Republican Party. His budget plan takes us right back down the path that got us into this mess in the first place. Bush on steroids, Go Away.
