GOP vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is a skilled bowhunter and one-time Oscar Meyer Weinermobile jockey, but according to a proposal laid out earlier this year by Mitt Romney, he probably doesn't have the business accumen to serve as president.

Speaking at a campaign event in May, Romney appeared to endorse a supporter's idea for a constitutional amendment stating that a “president has to spend at least three years working in business before he can become president of the United States."

Romney continued, "You see, then he or she would understand that the policies they're putting into place have to encourage small business, make it easier for business to grow.”
