Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is criticizing President Barack Obama over the protests in the Middle East, saying the region "looks like Tehran in 1979."

The Wisconsin congressman is referring to the 1979 Iranian revolution that led to the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the 444-day hostage crisis that helped undermine President Jimmy Carter's administration.

Ryan told a crowd in Fort Collins, Colo., on Wednesday that Obama's foreign policy is, in his words, "blowing up in our faces."

Ryan continued to hammer Obama's foreign policy during a visit to Colorado Springs, and he promised not to cut military spending.

Earlier this year Ryan voted to set up automatic, across-the-board cuts in Pentagon spending next year as part of a bipartisan deficit-reduction agreement.
