[Paul] Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, casts himself as an average Joe, describing the challenges his family faced when his father died suddenly when Ryan was 16. He talks about growing up in Janesville, a town descended from Irish immigrants like his great-great-grandfather, who fled the potato famine in the 1800s. Nearly 70 of his cousins still live in the area, and Ryan likes to recall flipping hamburgers at a local McDonald’s restaurant when he was young.
It’s funny, because Iowans and Wisconsinites, we like to be respectful of one another and peaceful with one another and listen to each other. These guys must not be from Iowa or Wisconsin. Paul Ryan is heckled at his first solo campaign stop.
