I think Ryan is a good man and will be fair as Speaker. What really amazes me is all this bashing and hating going on against Ryan, as if those FReepers have been living on some other planet for the past few years. It seems to come as a shock to them that the House is not dominated by conservatives. What part of the single-digit congressional approval rating do they not understand?
Want more conservative congressmen? That’s what elections are for!
Frankly, you need to point your accusatory finger in a different direction. Ryan has been a huge disappointment in the past 2-3 years. After many here were champions of his, he took a decided turn for the worse since 2012. He became a Chamber whore and Boehner tool. He deserves the criticism. I hope he’ll perform admirably in this position. The potential is there, but if he drives the same agenda as the past 3 years this is going to be just as bad as before. In practical terms I don’t know what other option there was. None of the heavy weight options among conservatives would run. We just have to hope this is a fresh start and a new team offers some competent leadership.
We vote for them, they sell out and we get screwed for another few years. Then we do it again, and again, and again and nothing ever changes. And yet, it’s us that are somehow wrong for distrusting people promising us they’ll be conservative?
” I swear honey, this is the last time I cheat on you! Those other girls meant nothing! “
Wake up. The vote doesn’t matter in 90%of cases. The system is screwed.
Ryan cooked up a budget that cut Vet benefits with the Dems .
Ryan is owned by Cheap Labor express Billionaire Sheldon Adelson.
There is NOTHING honorable , Decent, or moral about La Raza Ryan !
Who in the f*ck are you talking about? He’s a suckboy for the Chamber of Commerce. Never held a real f*cking job. And wants MORE, I REPEAT MORE MORE MORE, immigration into this country.
Anyone who would take a f*cking stage with Gutierrez is a complete POS.
You seem to be the one “living on some other planet for the last few years”. As has been pointed out, clearly, by your lack of knowledge about the REAL Lyin’ Paul Ryan.
To be blunt, you are full of sh*t.
Ryan is a truly evil human being.
Ryan will gleefully seek to continue policies that will destroy our Republic. I guess you are okay with that.
You are either GOPe or you are truly delusional.
Here’s some good background reading, for you, on Ryan.....
SAVE US FROM PAUL RYAN AND THE KEMP BOYS
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?
Want more conservative congressmen? Thats what elections are for!
We thought we did when we voted in a Republican majority House and then Senate.
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.
Bob, with respect; re: “fair as Speaker”
I don’t want him to be “fair.” I want him to kick ass, and push legislation through, not have 7 years to plan a Obamacare replacement... and blow it.
Tom Delay once told me: “If you have the votes, it doesn’t matter if you are right or wrong. And if you don’t have the votes, it doesn’t matter if you are right or wrong.”
