Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu says he expects Vice President Joe Biden to be "a good soldier" in defending Obama administration policies during his debate tonight against Paul Ryan.
But he said viewers of the debate would likely be "very impressed" with how Ryan stands up to the older Biden because he has "the capacity to really put tough issues in a way that people understand them."
Sununu cautioned, however, that Biden, a veteran debater and long-time U.S. senator before becoming vice president, will "do better than people expect, only because the expectations are so low."
Calling the vice presidential face-off at Centre College in Danville, Ky., an "important invent" in the presidential campaign, Sununu told Fox News' Sean Hannity Wednesday night that Ryan's task will be to keep bringing up the failures of the administration, what they should have done and what the Romney/Ryan team will do when they win in November.
"Joe is going to have to try and defend his boss's failures," Sununu continued. "And he is going to be a good soldier. He is going to do his best there."
The Republican added that Biden will show up at the debate with a well-prepared  "narrative" aimed at convincing voters that the nation in on the road to recovery and that that Obama does four more years to get the job done.
"He will have a narrative. I just hope the public understands that there is the narrative the White House is going to give, and . . . the truth," Sununu said. "And we have learned, there is always a big difference between the narrative they hand us . . . and the truth.
