Linda Morrison posed a direct question to Ryan during a Tuesday rally in Clinton, Iowa. Referring to an earlier interview on "Fox News Sunday" in which Ryan had declined to get into specifics about what deductions he and Romney would end in order to finance their plan to cut tax rates, she asked: "Where are the answers? I mean, why aren't you more specific? I heard you, was it Sunday when you were on Fox, and you didn't answer his question about how we're going to -- you know, what are your plans?"
The Obama campaign seized on the question, claiming Ryan "can't attend his own campaign rallies without being called out for failing to provide specifics."
But Morrison, writing in the Quad-City Times, said she wasn't calling anybody out.
"Needless to say, I was quite shocked to learn the Obama campaign seized my question," she wrote. "I was not calling Ryan out. I had the opportunity to ask a direct question to Paul Ryan and what I got was a complete direct answer with no spin."
Morrison wrote that she thought Ryan "was talking directly to me" in his response and she thanked him after the event.
"I left the event feeling satisfied and confident that the Romney/Ryan plan is what our country needs," she wrote.
"Today I am outraged that my question is being misrepresented and used as a political tool against the Romney/Ryan campaign by both media and the Obama camp. The question I asked is what we the citizens want to know: How is the Romney/Ryan plan going to tackle this economy? Paul Ryan answered it with precise clarity.
