Boehner also praised Ryan — who Boehner said helped put up signs for his first campaign in Ohio 22 years ago — as a good choice for the No. 2 spot on the ticket.

"[Romney] could have taken a safer route, but he didn’t," Boehner said. "He sent a signal to Amercans that he’s going to be on offense, he’s going to take the election to the [Democrats]."

Boehner said Democrats are hoping to make an issue of Ryan’s proposed changes to Medicare, "Bring it on," arguing it was the Democrats who took $700 million out of Medicare to pay for "Obamacare," which he said voters don’t want.

Boehner said he thinks the Romney campaign is in good shape and said that "the goal is to win the election in November. It’s not to win the election on Labor Day."
