    Don’t talk to Paul Ryan about droughts or struggling farmers — he “just wants to enjoy the fair”
Back off, Farmer John. Your problems come second to Master Ryan’s fair-going, asJoan Walsh explains:

“Ryan, who’s supposed to be the warm, regular guy on the ticket, gave a whiff of that odd Romney entitlement today at the Iowa State Fair. Asked whether he supported efforts to provide federal relief to farmers struggling with the state’s historic drought, Ryan waved off the reporter. “We’ll get into all those policy things later,” he said, adding, rather unbelievably, “Right now I just want to enjoy the fair.” That’s not terribly bold of Paul Ryan. He opposes the drought relief bill that got bipartisan support in the Senate; why not talk about his alternative ideas? An Iowan told the Huffington Post Ryan should have answered the question. “There’s a lot of farmers here,” he said. […] What kind of person thinks he can give that kind of answer on his third day on the presidential campaign trail? A guy who’s not as good at retail politics as his Republican boosters want to believe, that’s for sure.”
