Any hoo I promised to turn on Paul Ryan today and despite the fact that the midterms are already old news and despite the probable terrorist shooting in Thousand Oaks last night, I dont want to miss the opportunity. I do hold him and his subversive Never-Trumpers totally responsible for the Republican loss of the House. And of course they still dont get it.
Ryans Deep State tendencies prevented him from pressing for the Presidents (our) agenda. He was dismissive, sometimes even derisive, of our priorities and therefore failed to advance the agenda we enthusiastically sent PDJT to Washington to implement. Specifically, he did nothing to help the country control the border by building the wall. Nothing to introduce legislation to close the asylum and birthright loopholes. Literally NOTHING to address the countrys immigration mess. He supported an Obamacare repeal bill that he KNEW wouldnt get through the Senate. He passed a watered down tax bill but failed to make even those reforms permanent before handing the House over to the Democratic Sociliasts who want tax increases. He completely tabled the national reciprocity for concealed carry. And nothing to rein in the bloated budget fueling our massive debt: nothing to reform the welfare entitlement programs, nothing to improve the nations decaying infrastructure. Nothing to help drain the swamp, to which Mr. Ryan has became quite acclimated.
So now Ryan moves on to become a talking head somewhere, criticizing the President until such time as his mandated one year ban from cashing in on K Street is up. May I suggest he leave immediately, and get a 2 month jump on his 1 year ban? That way maybe we could get a few of the above items taken care of before the NPCs take over.
And frankly, when the Democrats take over in January we will notice very little difference from whats been going on in the House over the last 2 years, except the tone of the press coverage will be much better. Because as Hillary told us, theyll behave more civilly once they get some power back.
So for now we must remind ourselves that we still have a lion in charge and hope that some of the lessor jungle inhabitants take a few lessons and cues from him. Sometimes your job is to fight.

Excellent summation of the obstruction of Paul Ryan.
