Congressman Paul Ryan led a town hall meeting in Janesville, Wisconsin last night, answering a number of questions about the economy, the sequester and other budgetary issues.

But while the former Vice Presidential candidate expectantly blamed President Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate for most of the country's economic woes, he surprised many with his response to a question about gay adoption.

"I do believe that if there are children who are orphans who do not have a loving person or couple, I think if a person wants to love and raise a child they ought to be able to do that. Period. I would vote that way," Ryan said.

Former Republican V.P. candidate Paul Ryan said Sunday on Meet the Press that the nation's fiscal crisis would be different right now under Hillary Clinton.

“Look, if we had a [Hillary] Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles as chief of staff ... I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now," Ryan said.

"[But] that’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.”

Bowles was chief of staff to former President Bill Clinton, and currently co-chairs the Campaign to Fix The Debt, a bipartisan deficit reduction effort.

In his first interview since the 2012 election results dealt him a tough defeat, GOP V.P. nominee Paul Ryan admits losing came as something of a surprise.

"We thought we had a very good chance of winning," the 42-year-old said.

"You know, the polling and the data and all the people who are the smart people who watch this stuff -- they had a pretty optimistic view on the night."

"So as you can imagine, it was a bit of a shock when we didn't win."

Vice President Joe Biden is at it again with his controversial remarks on the campaign trail.

During a speech in Nevada, he made reference to Republican V.P. nominee Paul Ryan's book Young Guns, which he co-wrote with other GOP Congressmen ...

"They have guns but no bullets," a member of the crowd shouted.

"Unfortunately, the bullets are aimed at you," Biden replied.

Mitt Romney's running mate, 42, not only held his own against Joe Biden in the political ring, he looks like he could go 12 rounds in another ring right now.

Rocking a backwards baseball cap (red, obviously), a tight t-shirt and his trademark grin, the possible future U.S. vice president is one cool (and ripped) dude.

Politics aside, Paul and Janna Ryan make one good-looking, fit couple. Let's see if Biden's smiling ear-to-ear after a push-up contest with this guy!

Unlike President Obama, Joe Biden actually showed up for his debate with Paul Ryan last night in Danville, Ky., with the V.P. candidates putting on quite a display.

While both sides could take away plenty of political positives from the vice presidential debate, the general consensus was that it made for great TV.

Some of our favorite celebrity Twitter reactions appear below:

Dennis Miller: "Biden’s incessant smile is reminding me of the Cleveland Indian’s Hat Logo which is reminding me of baseball. Adios."

Donald Trump: "Pretty even debate- no knockouts. However Ryan's closing statement somewhat stronger. What do you think? #VPDebate"

Deneeta Pope, the African-American ex-girlfriend of Republican V.P. nominee Paul Ryan, wants nothing to do with the upcoming Presidential election.

She's also a Barack Obama supporter, though she wishes Ryan well.

Ryan mentioned in an interview years ago that he's experienced racism in part because he has a black sister-in-law as well as a black ex-girlfriend.

This came up again recently after some of Ryan's policies have been criticized - fairly or otherwise - as detrimental to the African-American community.

Deneeta Pope has since been ID'd ... and wishes she hadn't been.

Pope said yesterday, a day after Paul Ryan's acceptance speech at the RNC, "I'm not interested in talking. I don't know why everyone is calling."

"I'm newly married and would just like to be left alone."

Deneeta did speak briefly on the newly-minted V.P. hopeful, though, telling the Daily Mail that while she remains an ardent Barack Obama backer, she can't help but cheer for the #2 man on the GOP 2012 ticket at the same time.

Pope, 40, said, "I am indeed a Democrat. That’s no secret. But although I have a different political association to Paul, I support him and wish him success."

"Paul is a very nice guy, a kind guy and a family guy."

Daneeta says that she remains in touch with the Wisconsin Congressman; Paul and his wife, Janna Ryan, were even invited to Pope's wedding in May.

Wonder if she has a Paul Ryan shirtless pic or two of her own.
