As plain as the nose on your face....Paul Ryan is out and now is the time for the Republican Senate Caucus to send Majority Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell packing, heading into a retirement where he will never be heard from again.
I’m certainly going to do my part to make it so.
Mitch needs to go.
Good riddance to Ryan!!!!
How do you plan to do that? He's secure in his Senate seat until 2020.
Paul Ryan was never the real problem (he may have been eventually). Mitch is the problem. He never pushed his memebers, not forces tough votes. He’s not much of a leader. To be fair, his members mostly suck
He’s not gone yet and they’ll just put McCarthy in his place.
Did Ryan resign? All I heard was that he is not running for re-election. Therefore we can still hear from him for a few more months.
He "must go now also!!!"? Good luck with that. McConnell wields considerable power inside the beltway, and he's comfortably ensconced in his Senate seat until 2020.
"Oh! But Ryan's going! Why not McConnell too?"
Sorry, Senate terms are six years, not two like the House (see Article I, section 3, clause 1 of the Constitution).
No one should praise Paul Ryan.
We’ll see what the Chao family has to say about this (reading “Secret Empires” at the moment, which discusses possible Chinese family influences on McConnell.)
Since that worthles sonovabitch, McConnell, was just re-elected to yet another 6 year term in 2016, we are stuck with his back-stabbing, corrupt and traitorous arse until 2022. Same thing applies to that other steaming pile of excrement, John “Wayne” Cornyn.
Only a fortuitous miracle from God can change that.
- Refusing to step down early and not help GOP for midterms
- Continues supporting the dirty cop, James Comey
- Indicates he will push amnesty for ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS
Lyin’ Ryan is a traitor to the very end.
But it matters who replaces them.
If that slime McCarthy takes over for Ryan, that is just another shell game with no improvement.
McConnell was re-elected in 2014:
The 2014 United States Senate election in Kentucky took place on November 4, 2014 to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the Commonwealth of Kentucky, concurrently with elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections.
Incumbent Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader, ran for re-election to a sixth term. He faced Democratic nominee and Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and Libertarian nominee David Patterson in the general election.
The race was initially considered one of the most competitive in the 2014 election year. The Cook Political Report considered the race a toss up and the Rothenberg Political Report considered the race to "lean Republican." McConnell ultimately defeated Grimes by a larger-than-expected margin.
I stand corrected.
I feel terrible that turtles have been maligned by their comparison to McConnell.
RINO Ryan still has 8 months to continue his obstruction
of Trumps agenda.
Mitch, has done one thing that I will forever be grateful for . . . he held firm on the Supreme Court nomination until President Trump nominated Neal Gorsuch. It remains to be seen whether the long term effect on one Justice can really help the nation. Nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised at Mitch. I didn’t think he had it in him to stand firm, even once, for an important conservative issue.
Now, he needs to get the other Presidential appointments speeding through.
Hopefully, Jordan will edge him out. But, then we all have to hold our noses to see if he is the, Real Deal, as well.
