WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan has come out against President Obama's latest plan to have chemical weapons removed from Syria. 

Obama told Americans Tuesday night he wants to give Syria a chance to turn over its chemical weapons to Russia for eventual destruction. 

If that doesn't work, the president said he would order a limited military strike designed to weaken Syrian President Assad. Obama also vowed not to drag Americans into another war. 

Ryan -- the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee -- said today that a military strike would make things worse, and it damage America's credibility. He also said this week's events prove that the U.S. has a credibility gap on the subject. 

Ryan also said Obama is simply following Russia's lead without having a clear strategy of his own.

Senate Republican Ron Johnson is the only Wisconsin Member of Congress who has come close to endorsing the Obama strategy. Johnson calls it "practical." 

Amid declining congressional support, the president has asked both houses to delay votes on authorizing the use of force against Syria.
