Ryan unveils new offensive

"Ryan unveils new offensive" Continued...

Perhaps taking this theme to heart, attendees did take action when demonstrators interrupted Ryan’s remarks.

“Corporations are not people! What are you going to do about money in politics?” the protestors shouted before security dragged them away.

The audience soon overwhelmed the protests with cheers of their own: “USA! USA!”

“Thank you so much,” Ryan responded in appreciation to his crowd of defenders. “I appreciate your support.”

Ryan and Romney are hoping these self-proclaimed values voters will be equally assertive in their spheres of influence back home.
