FULL SPEECH: Paul Ryan’s first solo act on the campaign trail draws huge crowd and a few protestors

It was a great speech, but I was a bit distracted by watching the protesters continually try and make a menace out of themselves. It started within the first 2 minutes where 2 protesters rushing the stage had to be dragged away and the rest of the speech others were trying to block the camera and be disruptive. In fact you won’t see Paul Ryan very much in this clip, but you’ll hear him just fine as he ignored them quite well and stayed on message.

You can watch the full speech below:

Also here’s a great photo taken by Jeff Zeleny with the NY Times of what he called a Palin-size crowd (click to make larger):
