Entertaining protest. Polite and cool. Very successful peaceful form of protest with such small numbers.

Paul Ryan refuses to answer all questions. Ryan tells them to schedule a meeting.... Politicians never schedule meetings with you. I've tried many times.

"Do I need to make 1 dollar an hour to compete with China?"

We need to run these corrupt politicians out of town.

Kind of like all of those town hall meetings that many stopped doing. Either make yourself available for the people or gtfo of the game. Ryan is such a douche.

He and his wife said they just wanted to focus on their family at the "Labor" day parade. Nah, let's not focus on laborers and the fact that they too want to love and support their families.

Have a nice day. Weird. Such a nice thing to say and yet - I got the feeling that they were spitting.

Basically, Ryan doesn't care one bit about labor and wages and workers' rights. Nor does he care about the children of those laborers.

Smerky smerkersen? Yeah - and his wife seems just as nasty - was it just me or did her smile seem somewhat wired or superglued in place?

I noticed the fake grin as well. She was probably ready to cry, getting attacked and all. Poor thing. How dare those American citizens ask her husband, who is running to be their Vice President, such hard questions!

LOL - at one point it looked like smarmy was gonna go after the kid - that would have been a money shot - but I doubt if it would have been to defend the wife.

Ryan = Douche http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1Fgv5-l7fc

Him an Ol Mittens they got nothing for the American People and that is why all you will here from them are lies and promises that can not possibly add up or as seen lately a reiteration of the current administrations programs with an addition of "BUT BETTER".

That video is priceless. Just goes to show that politicians normally are insulated from such activities by carefully staged media presentations. This was an obvious gaff by Ryan...one that I'm sure he regrets being a part of. Very rare to see something like this these days. Ryan didn't even know how to handle the two men on the street who had him cornered and were asking important yet uncomfortable questions. He knew the camera was running, and he didn't know how to handle it, so instead of answering the questions he just blew them off and told them to "schedule a meeting."

Priceless.

Paul Ryan at a Labor Day parade does have a surreal quality.

Kind of like the President when he gets confronted with important yet uncomfortable questions about Benghazi....which he so rarely does because the media loathes to make him uncomfortable.

I wasn't aware that any citizen approached by strangers on the street with a camera is morally obligated to answer their questions and spend as much time with them as necessary to placate their concerns, much less a busy and tightly scheduled one.

You should watch him duck dodge and dive all the questions in this video

In regards to your comments about the Paul Ryan video... If you don't want to talk to the people... don't run for elected office. It's kind of your job to represent the people. He could have easily answered a question in all the time he spent telling the guy no. The guy wasn't heckling Paul. He was asking him questions.

Same goes for the President, don't you agree?
