LAKEWOOD, Colo--Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan took the stage before 2,600 supporters at Lakewood High School Tuesday to promote Mitt Romney's energy proposals, but he had another agenda.
Interlaced throughout his speech were subtle, but clear, references to Ryan's common-man appeal. Over the course of his nearly 20-minute address, Ryan discussed working at McDonald's, shelling out more than $100 at the pump to fill up his gas tank, camping and fishing with his family, climbing the Colorado "14'ers"--a reference to the state's mountain peaks above 14,000 feet--and that he recently taught his boys "how to cook a meal on the fire."

Ryan Worked at McDonalds. That is why Moochelle Obama criticized Gabby Douglas, Olympic gold medal gymnast’s desire for an Egg McMuffin.
Good one Hoss.
Midwesterners will do the math: he drives a BIG HONKIN’ GAS GUZZLIN’ manly truck. “I like to camp” translates to “I shoot stuff with guns”. “Work at McDonalds” means “I still eat meat and cheese and fries and all the good All-American stuff that nosy witch in the white house says is bad for you”.
We like Paul Ryan!
I drive a truck. Trucks are macho just like Ford Mustangs and Chevy Cameros. Has 0bama ever owned a car and what was it? A VW beetle, VW bus, or Le Car?
My guess would be a Suburu.
He did have a 300C.. Not sure if it was a Hemi or a sissy 3.5/2.7 V6..
I think you might be on to something.
I like Ryan. Wish he was the top dog.
She really is not even cute.
Is that the Chrysler 300? It is not really a bad car.
It also sounds like something that felons are transported in which is a bonus.
Everything that Willard is not...
but suddenly now, always wanted to be...
Our local radio guys here were wishing the ticket could be reversed. I am not opposed to that.
It was probably an older volvo.
yes. No not a bad car if you like a big box on wheels. With the 2.7V6 if it’s not in the shop your opening the door and kicking with your legs to help get it rolling..
With a hemi in it though... Oh baby..
