Ryan has a very small power base at this time but the Establishment allowed him to get to VP. He is playing the game a bit I think -because he has to, same as Rubio- and Ryan is not perfect, supported auto bailouts, etc, but would certainly be a HUGE improvement over JB once he had the gavel in his hand- if for no other reason than Obama’s terrified of him. Ryan is also a fighter/happy warrior, and once he got to the top expect a VERY conservative agenda to take hold- jmho
Agree. I wouldn’t have any problme at all with him being number 3 for now. He could sift through and pick the legilastion to bring forward. Break these big bills into little, manageable pieces, one line at a time. I can live with that.
That is correct. Remember Zippy in the early budget talks at the White House Summit--when Ryan schooled Zippy on how finances would work, Zippy could only glare at him and rub his temple with his middle finger. When Zippy glares, you know you have pushed his "hot" button".
I can hope this report is true, but my hope is a very fragile thing right now. Too many Lucys holding footballs in my years with the GOP.
