Democrats and Republicans are downplaying expectations, as both sides prepare for the first Presidential debate this week.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:

President Obama and Mitt Romney debate this Wednesday in Denver, Colorado, and Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan says it's up to Mitt Romney to...

(Ryan) "...Give the American people the choice that we're offering."

Ryan telling FOX News Sunday...

(Ryan) "We can either have a dynamic, growing economy that produces opportunity, or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency."

But he also notes there's a much more experienced debater in President Obama, while the White House says...

(Plouffe) "We've expected all along that Governor Romney will have a good night."
