Want more conservative congressmen? That’s what elections are for!

Oh. You mean those "open" state primaries where Democrats vote for the Republican they want to see on the ballot against their guy? Those elections?

Ryan’s lifetime average from Heritage is 63%. Not great, but he was at 74% two sessions ago. As part of leadership, he was obliged to go along with Boehner, who pulled him left. I think he’ll be much more conservative now the Boehner is gone, but we’ll see.

95 PERCENT OF REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ARE NOT REAL CONSERVATIVES WHICH MEANS 12.35 OF THE 247 GOP MEMBERS ARE REAL CONSERVATIVES.

THE ‘FREEDOM CAUCUS’ CLAIMS 40 SOME MEMBERS. I’M NOT SURPRISED MOST OF THEM BACK PAUL ‘JACK UP THE NATIONAL DEBT’ RYAN. MOST OF THEM ARE FAKES......

I agree with you on that and I used to support Rothfus.

Keith was supported by the Trump haters from the Club for Growth, the new Rockefeller Republicans.

Finally someone identifies the truth! Ryan = Boehner!

And don't fool yourselves, one of his conditions is that once he's in, he stays in and can't be kicked out.

Before I went to bed, I counted 3 major newspapers that said that the freedom Caucus backed Ryan, and Breitbart and National Journal that said he didn’t. Upon closer reading, they all really said the same thing, except that the ones that said the caucus didn’t back Ryan considered that a vote of 2/3 of the voting body was NOT baacking. They insisted that the body needed to get to be 4/5 of the voting body before it could be considered backing. I dunno, I think that 2/3 is a pretty good majority. Besides, the people who said that 2/3 was backing allowed that the items where the body differed were minor and would be worked out within committee.

Depends upon how you read it and how Ryan interprets the vote, doesn’t it?

For some background info on Ryan, go to www.marklevinshow.com. Select Audio Rewind and then the date of 10-21-15 and listen to a podcast of Mark's show for that date. Mark lays out why he does not want Ryan for the position. Mark has taped recordings of his conversations with Ryan, in which it shows that Ryan speaks out of both sides of his mouth. It is very much worth listening to..Mark has all his ducks in a row on this one, once again.

With a 3/4 vote for Ryan, the Freedom Caucus's non-endorsement is simply its version of a show vote to try and protect its members from the wrath of their conservative voters

What bunch of pathetic cowards and sellouts. The Freedom Caucus is GOPe! Hey Jim Jordan, don't contact me again for a contribution given you can't even get your so called conservative group to stop a HUGE RINO from becoming Speaker. Losers and Cowards!

Mr. Amnesty is just another Boehner, McCarthy, GOPe.

Want more conservative congressmen? That’s what elections are for!

We thought we did when we voted in a Republican majority House and then Senate.

The Freedom Caucus should be called the Enslavement Caucus.

Ryan has apparently signaled that he will be a continuance of Boehner’s policies as speaker, but that he will tolerate even less dissent.

That belies your opinion that he would be “fair”.

Ryan is an unabashed amnesty promoter.

Oldie but goodie from Fake News NY Times :)

From the article....

Mr. Ryan said on Tuesday night that he would reluctantly accept the speakership, but only if his Republican colleagues united behind him and agreed to several demands.

These included changes to a procedure for removing the speaker from office that would deprive rebel lawmakers of a potent weapon.

Trump said we’re gonna have to work something out on the dreamers, so it’s all amnesty all the time.
