Reader: I wanted to see Paul Ryan speak, not disrupt event
Yesterday, while covering veep candidate Paul Ryan's speech in Lakewood, our Sam Levin spoke with six students banned from the event because they weren't enthusiastic fans of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Lots of intriguing comments followed, including this from one of the aforementioned students, who insists the plan was about listening, not disrupting the speaker.
I was one of the four that wasn't allowed in. It was actually really frustrating. I'm not much of a Romney or Ryan fan, but I was genuinely interested in finding out what Paul Ryan had to say today.
