Posted on 12/07/2012 1:19:21 PM PST by Bigtigermike
As House Speaker John Boehner continues to hide the details of what happened and why during his conservative purge of House committees, House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan is eschewing comment and instead directing all inquiries about the purge to Boehners office.
For several days, spokespeople for Ryan the Republican Partys most recent vice presidential candidate whos widely rumored to be positioning himself to run for president in 2016 have refused to answer any questions about whether Ryan was involved and, if he was, what role he played.
Then, on Friday, Ryan spokesman William Allison would not deny Ryans involvement in the purge. We are going to defer you to the Speakers office and the Steering Committee, Allison told Breitbart News when asked if Ryan was involved and supported Boehner's move.
A spokesman for Boehner didnt return a request for comment when asked if Ryan was involved.

Paul Ryan seems to be sucking up to GOPe and if so he can go straight to hell!
Ryan voted for TARP — disqualified as are any other (Cantor) who did the same.
Paul Ryan’s performance in the campaign was mediocre at best. His debate performance was a sleeper. Romney selected the wrong guy to run with. With Rubio, he at least had a guy who could handle himself well with the press and in public appearance. He never looked ill at ease when a question was asked, and he always was able to piece together a good response. Whether you liked Rubio or not, he was the far stronger VP candidate who would have garnered mega Hispanic votes.
As for Ryan, he does not have a magnetic personality, what is referred to in the TV business as a high Q rating. If the Republicans run with Ryan in 2016, he will lose by a wide margin. Just picture him against Hillary, presuming she is healthy and wins the Dem nomination.
....and Obamugabe continues his laughter.
We Republicans/conservatives (yes, I know they’re not necessarily interchangeable) continue to cannibalize—while we SHOULD be focusing on the real enemy of freedom: the assclown in the Oval Office.
Lying, devious bastards all.
The Republican party says - *True conservatives need not apply*.
True colors of kiss ass Paul Ryan showing because he wants to secure space in the elite’s protective bunker once the American people finally realize how effed over they’ve been by this government.

If you try and fail...
There is very little difference between a republican and democrat anymore. They are both in favor of huge federal spending. If that weren’t true, the House would refuse to pass bills and obamas takeover of America couldn’t happen.
Conservative aren’t cannibalizing anyone. Most of us see no problem at all going after a republican if he/she is not Conservative, or not acting Conservative.
To me, republicans and democrats, are “them”. I’m a Conservative.
6-21-3-11 the republicans!
“Just picture him against Hillary, presuming she is healthy and wins the Dem nomination.”
She’d win in a landslide. Heck, I might vote for her... instead of a ball-less GOPe guy. It’s a sad day when Hillary has more balls than the candidates the GOPe fields.
I liked Ryan but he was clearly not ready for prime time in the GOP campaign. Turns out neither was Mitt.
Where are all the Ryan cheerleaders?
Who didn’t vote for TARP? Didn’t Allen West? And of course, McCain. I don’t think we have as many conservatives as we think.
In sex, your comment would be considered a premature ejaculation.......
They are still at Mitt headquarters bawling their eyes out, they probably were the ones touting Chris Christie as a conservative and thinks Rubio is squeaky clean as a protege of Jeb Bush
BAHAAAAA Funniest thing heard for awhile, needed the laugh
When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. -George R. Martin
Cannibalize??? That means eating your own. I do not consider conservatives criticizing Republicans as a cannibalizing.
Conservatives and Republicans used to be cousins, now they are not even the same speicies.
While Obama is a problem, RINOs are no less a threat to our nation.
Are you sure about this? This is ridiculous.
In case you have seen latest polls, the American people are overwhelmingly with Obama and the RATS on this. The American people want higher taxes with no spending cuts.
Ryan was okay. Not great. He won the debate polls...but that had much to do with Biden acting like a fool. The problem with a guy like Ryan or Rubio being a vp candidate is that you are completely handled by the campaign. I realized this in 1996 when Jack Kemp sounded like a different person. These two are excellent when speaking for themselves
I agree through. I think Ryan’s role needs to be as a senior legislator, not presidential candidate. He is not a great stump speaker. He gave an excellent speech when announced, and his convention speech was a highlight. His town halls were great. He does very well in tv interviews when is on his own away from handlers. He was not superb in the big rallies. He’s just not that kind of guy.
Rubio has that skill in abundance. In respect, be would have been a better choice....I am not sure he was interested, though.
Well I’m going to take all that stonewalling as a “yes”.
RINOs Sticking together
I am Shocked
Remember when a few of us called Bush out, for what he was, the flame throwers were brought out? I do.
Live and learn folks, there is only one party, the Royals.
Check the Rubio fan threads.
Crud...Ryan just another RINO. Where have all the conservatives gone?
I don’t consider myself an expert.
Ryan, for all his smarts, had never held a leadership position in Washington or Madison.
Mitt got the nomination by running for president for 6 years and now that he’s dropped off the map, you don’t hear any GOPers saying they miss him. There is no Romneyism or Ryanism. Middle of the road equals Democrat lite. As Harry Truman said, the public will choose a real Democrat over a fake Democrat every time.
“”Are you sure about this? This is ridiculous.”
Sure that Hillary has more balls than RINOmney and Robin put together?
