Republican Paul Ryan said Thursday evening that President Barack Obama has allowed Iran to get four years closer to building a nuclear weapon.

Biden said at the vice presidential debate that he is "quite confident" the administration could deal a serious blow to Iranian's nuclear ambitions.

The vice president called Ryan's criticisms of his foreign policy a "bunch of malarkey," but Ryan contended he would stand up for Israel.
