Mitt Romney's VP pick, Rep. Paul Ryan, dominated the headlines this week, as did Mitt Romney's announcement that "over the past 10 years [he] never paid less than 13 percent" in taxes. Outlandish political rhetoric also abounded this week, as Vice President Joe Biden told a predominantly-African-American audience that a President Romney would "put y'all back in chains."
