    House Speaker Paul Ryan’s approval rating has sunk to a low of 29 percent, lower than President Trump’s and lower than those of John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich at the same point during their first full terms as speaker. And Ryan’s disapproval rating is at 54 percent. However, he is more popular among his own constituents. A March survey found 49 percent of voters in Wisconsin’s first congressional district had a favorable view of Ryan, while 44 percent had an unfavorable view. Now the Republican who challenged Ryan for his congressional seat in last year’s primary has a theory as...

    It’s also lower than Trump’s, notes WaPo’s Amber Phillips. Trump is at 39 percent in this poll, a dismal number for a president at any stage but especially during what’s supposed to be his “honeymoon period” with voters. And still, he’s fully 10 points better than Ryan.How many different contributing factors are there for Ryan’s garbage numbers? I can think of at least four.His approval rating isn’t wildly different from Boehner’s or Pelosi’s. His disapproval rating, though? Hoo boy. Contributing factor one: He was, of course, the quarterback for the GOP’s much-hated health-care bill, which was polling at a...
  • 'No Conversation' On Replacing Speaker Paul Ryan: House Freedom Caucus Chair

    The chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus said there is no talk of replacing House Speaker Paul Ryan after the Republicans' proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare was killed because it failed to garner enough GOP support. On Saturday -- hours after Donald Trump tweeted to his followers, “Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.” – Jeanine Pirro opened her show with a call for House Speaker Paul Ryan to step down in the wake of the health care bill's failure. Along the same lines, the conservative website Breitbart raised the possibility that the head of the House...
  • Paul Ryan’s Catastrophic Lack of Political Skill and Judgment

    American Thinker ^ | March 27,2017 | By John Ellis
    With control of House, Senate and the Presidency, and with so much that cries out to be done after eight years of Obama inaction and/or mismanagement, Republicans have a golden opportunity to advance their own electoral fortunes by doing well for their country. But all of this is endangered by the fact that their major congressional leader is a man without political instincts, skills, or judgment. It’s unfair to say that he is a RINO, or to question his value to the party as the source of ideas that are sometimes very useful. But it is not unfair to say...
  • Discussion About Replacement to Paul Ryan as House Speaker Heats Up in White House, Congress

    President Trump pulled the healthcare bill today after it fell short of the votes needed to pass. Many believed that the highly unpopular healthcare bill dubbed ‘Ryancare’ was just another big government solution. President Trump may be playing 4D chess with this because this may have been the perfect way to not only get the full repeal of Obamacare, but also a replacement of House Speaker, Paul Ryan. Breitbart News with the exclusive story: Many allies of the president and several White House officials over the weeks since have confirmed to Breitbart News that the president is concerned that Ryan...

    Republican officials in Congress and the White House are now openly discussing finding a GOP replacement to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House, after Ryan failed to pass the American Health Care Act out of the House and misled the public and President Donald Trump when he promised repeatedly the bill would pass. Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later...

    And we have a suggestion for the haters I think this is probably going to go like every Paul Ryan post. I’m going to urge you to kick back and take a powder on the hate, and you’re going to ignore me and breathe fire in the comments section. It’s good that we had this talk. But I’m going to try anyway, for two simple reasons. One, like it or not (and I know a lot of you don’t), he just got unanimously re-nominated by the Republican majority (which probably means re-elected) for another term as House Speaker:

    Gateway Pundit ^ | Saturday November 12, 2016 | Jim Hoft
    Paul Ryan spoke out against Republican nominee Donald Trump ALL YEAR. Ryan announced in October he was pulling his endorsement of Donald Trump. He held a separate press conference to tell reporters he would not campaign with Donald Trump. Paul Ryan cannot be trusted. He is loyal to the elites and not the people. Paul Ryan is pro-amnesty, big government, pro-TPP and anti-American worker. Donald Trump won an historic election on Tuesday winning 306 electoral votes. But Republican lawmakers do not respect their base. They are voting this coming week to reinstate Paul Ryan as speaker. But Republican Rep. Tim...

    The chairman of the House Tea Party Caucus and one of the first men to come out against Speaker John A. Boehner told Breitbart News that he does not think Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R.-Wis.) has the votes to keep his gavel. “I just don’t think he has the votes,” said Rep. Timothy A. Huelskamp (R.-Kansas), who lost his primary Aug. 2 and returns to private life after this session of Congress. Huelskamp said he is concerned that the House Republican leadership is in a hurry to, first, get itself rubber-stamped inside the conference and then to proceed with an...

    Chatter is growing louder on Capitol Hill that Paul Ryan’s days as Speaker are numbered. Four House Republicans, including a senior lawmaker close to leadership, told The Hill they expect Ryan to step down after Tuesday’s elections, arguing that he faces a daunting path to the 218 votes he needs to win a full two-year term leading the House GOP.

    On the Sean Hannity show, today, 31 October, 2016, Sean had Congressman Louie Gohmert on as a guest.  They were discussing the election, and possible results from the finding of hundreds of thousands of emails connected to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on at least one computer, and perhaps other devices belonging to Anthony Weiner and Abedin Huma, a close and intimate associate of Hillary. The emails were found when a computer was searched as part of a child sex crimes investigation involving Weiner. Congressman Gohmert casually threw away this line to Sean Hannity at about 14:48 Pacific...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan is under fire from fellow Republicans upset with his messy political divorce from Donald Trump, with some threatening an effort to oust him. So far, the rumblings are limited and no one has advanced a potential replacement nearly as respected among colleagues as the Wisconsin Republican. That suggests an uphill path to deposing Ryan, who was his party's 2012 vice presidential nominee and could harbor White House ambitions.

    When the 115th Congress convenes in January, the House of Representatives may vote on a rules package that guts a powerful tool that allows members of the lower chamber to keep the speaker in check. In September, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., proposed a change to the rules of the House that would dissolve the privileged status of the "motion to vacate the chair," which allows any member of the House to introduce a resolution to depose the speaker. Under the current rules of the House, the resolution must receive a vote by the full chamber. The proposal put forward by...

    I may have been way too optimistic a week ago when I posted that it was “hard to come up with a realistic scenario that ends with Paul Ryan (R-WI) as speaker of the House of Representatives in the next Congress.” Never mind the next Congress: It now looks like Ryan could be deposed or forced to resign this Congress in the lame duck session that begins a week after Election Day. In other words, Ryan may no longer be speaker about four weeks from now. I say this after hearing from several highly reliable sources that the House Freedom...

    Donald Trump unleashed the fury of his Twitter account on his GOP critics Tuesday, accusing them of being fair-weather backers and insisting that he's better off without their "shackles," and he can now run the kind of campaign he wants. At first glance, though, the new Mr. Trump looked a lot like the old Mr. Trump -- with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Sen. John McCain targeted... "Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary," he said in another tweet. "They come at you from all sides. They don't know how to win -- I will teach them!"...
  • Secondary Protocol? Paul Ryan Wants Trump Out, RNC Reportedly Redirects Funding To Down-Ballot Races

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Saturday told party officials to redirect funds away from nominee Donald Trump to down-ballot candidates, according to an official informed of the decision. In practical terms, the party will be working to mobilize voters who support GOP House and Senate candidates regardless of their position on the presidential race. That means the RNC will push Floridians who support both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio to vote. Before today, the RNC wouldn’t have sought to turn out Clinton voters, leaving split-ticket voters for Senate campaigns to target. (Snip) On top...
