Television host Jerry Springer said Wednesday night that President Barack Obama was actually running against Mitt Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).

“This election is between Barack Obama and Paul Ryan,” he said on CNN. “Romney is almost irrelevant to it, because Paul Ryan is the budget that this Congress passed.”

Springer said that if Romney is elected this November, Paul Ryan’s budget plan is almost guaranteed of passing. It has already passed in the Republican-led House, but not the Democratic-led Senate.

“If Barack Obama isn’t there to veto it, all these things, doing away with Medicare as we now know it, doing away with the Affordable Healthcare Act and all the good things about that… doing away with the Pell Grant… this Congress is doing away with all that,” he said.
