Ryan accepts nomination, blames Obama for US decline

TAMPA, FLORIDA -- In accepting the Republican nomination for vice president Wednesday night, Paul Ryan slammed US President Barack Obama for worsening America's position in the world and hurting its relationships with allies.
He accused Obama of "managing American decline, leaving allies to doubt us and adversaries to test us."
In contrast, he pledged that a Romney-Ryan administration would "speak with confidence and clarity" in its dealings with the world, and "act in the conviction that the United States is still the greatest force for peace and liberty that this world has ever known."
