For Romney, China Attack Worth Backlash

Mitt Romney's unwavering attempts to hammer China's unfair trade practices - and the White House's inability to corral those practices - was complicated Thursday when reports surfaced that his newly anointed running mate had voted against just such a provision in Congress two years earlier. 

Making matters worse, the revelation came the same day Paul Ryan delivered a fiery speech attacking President Obama's pliancy toward the Far East country - a faux pas Chicago didn't let slide.  

Paul Ryan, speaking in industrial-heavy Ohio, said China must "play by the rules." 

"They steal our intellectual-property rights," he said. "They block access to their markets. They manipulate their currency."
