Here we go again. From this Sunday's Face the Nation, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan repeats the notion that his voting to send people's kids off to die invading countries that weren't a threat to us as foreign policy experience.

Ryan: ‘I Have More Foreign Policy Experience’ Than Obama Four Years Ago:

Paul Ryan pushed back against President Obama's attacks on the Romney-Ryan ticket as new to foreign policy, arguing that he has more foreign policy experience now than Obama did upon entering office four years ago in an interview on CBS Sunday.

"I have more foreign policy experience coming into this job than President Obama, who sat on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, did coming into his," Ryan said on "Face the Nation." "I've voted to send men and women to war. I've been to Iraq and Afghanistan. I've met with our troops to get their perspectives. I've been to the funerals, I've talked to the widows, I've talked to the wives, the moms and the dads. That's something. That matters."
