When I was flipping burgers at McDonalds on the interstate as a kid in Janesville, when I was detassleing corn, when I was working for Oscar Meyer, you know, selling baloney - real baloney by the way - when I was working three jobs out of college waiting tables to pay back my student loans, I did not think of myself stuck in some condition in life, as some victim, I saw myself on a road of opportunity trying to realize my version of my American dream pursing happiness how i defended it for myself.

Rep. Paul Ryan (via washingtonexaminer)

Um, is that a typo, or did Paul Ryan really say he was “pursing happiness how i defended it for myself”?
