Self-proclaimed "numbers guy" Paul Ryan doesn't elaborate on his revenue-neutral budget plan, and FDR issues a timely warning. (2:30)

NEXT WITH HIS GIANT DONG?

(LAUGHTER)

WELL, YOU CAN'T EXPECT ROMNEY TO

LAY OUT A SPECIFIC PLAN WITH

NUMBERS AND BUDGETS.

HE'S NOT A BUSINESSMAN, HE'S --

SORRY?

(LAUGHTER)

WE NEED A NUMBERS GUY.

>> THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW ME, I'M

KIND OF A NUMBERS GUY.

>> Jon: THERE HE IS!

THE CAPITOL HILL ACCOUNTANT!

THE WONK FROM WISCONSIN.

THE MATHEMATICIAN FROM --

MADISON'S GENERAL VICENTE FOX

CINDY.

LAY IT ON US, NUMBERS GUY.

HOW DO WE KNOW THE ROMNEY/RYAN

FISCAL PLAN WILL WORK?

>> I'VE RUN THE NUMBERS IN

CONGRESS, THEY DO.

>> Jon: OKAY.

(LAUGHTER)

SO WHAT ARE THE NUMBERS?

>> HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST?

>> IT'S REVENUE NEUTRAL.

>> HOW MUCH DOES THAT COST?

>> IT'S REVENUE NEUTRAL.

>> YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN ME MATH.

>> WELL, I DON'T HAVE THE -- IT

WOULD TAKE ME TOO LONG TO GO

THROUGH ALL OF THE MATH.

>> Jon: HOW ABOUT THIS?

YOU BUSY?

LEAVE IT WITH US, WE'LL LOOK IT

OVER.

(LAUGHTER)

UNLESS IT'S ALL BULL (BLEEP).

(LAUGHTER)

THIS REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING.

REMINDS ME OF A SIMPLER TIME

WHEN THE COUNTRY WAS ALSO

EMERGING FROM A GIGANTIC

FINANCIAL CRISIS AND A BOLD

YOUNG MAN RUNNING FOR HIS SECOND

PRESIDENTIAL TERM WAS ASSERTING

THE NEED FOR WEALTHIER AMERICANS

TO SACRIFICE TO HELP PAY FOR

POPULAR SOCIAL PROGRAMS.

I REMEMBER IT LIKE IT WAS

YESTERDAY.

>> LET ME WARN YOU AND LET ME

WARN THE NATION AGAINST THE

INVASION THAT SAYS "OF COURSE WE

BELIEVE THESE THINGS.

WE BELIEVE IN SOCIAL SECURITY.

WE BELIEVE IN WORK FOR THE

UNEMPLOYED.

WE BELIEVE IN SAVING HOMES.

CROSS OUR HEARTS AND HOPE TO

DIE.

WE BELIEVE IN ALL THESE THINGS."

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> BUT WE DO NOT LIKE THE WAY

THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION IS

DOING THEM!

JUST TURN THEM OVER TO US.

(LAUGHTER)

WE WILL DO ALL OF THEM.

WE WILL DO MORE OF THEM.

WE WILL DO THEM BETTER.

AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, THE

DOING OF THEM WILL NOT COST

ANYBODY ANYTHING.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: YEAH, I BET THAT GUY

LOST.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
