Pressure Ryan? Primary the RINO. Better yet, tar and feather him.
Find someone who can get 218 votes and you can get rid of Ryan. Until then it’s a moot point.
Ryan is not what he presents himself to be, that deception extends to his personal affairs.
This RINO Eddie Munster sock puppet is a conservative? Hardly.
So, blackmail him to step down?
Might you care to elaborate on the ‘personal affairs’ comment...although nothing would surprise me regarding that A-hole.
Do you think Ryan himself could get 218 votes at this point? I don’t.
Wouldn’t work the people in his district love him. I think he won the renom with 70% the last time.
If he could lose his speakership then the “love” might change but then he’d be irrelevant!
Rumor has it he is a switch hitter.
McConnell even worse. Credit for scotus though.
Ryan is a lying sack of excrement. His wife is a liberal Rat and so is he.
Jeeze...too funny. He’s already more of a snake in my book than Frank Underwood is even made out to be (House of Cards).
Being a Switch Hitter just seals it. How the hell can we have 254 Republicans in the House and not elect a conservative speaker, when (in 1999) we had 223 (i.e., very bare majority) and still managed to elect a conservative?
>>Rumor has it he is a switch hitter.
Wouldn’t surprise me if he was a perv...reminds me a LOT of Anthony Weiner.
It'd be tight. He can only afford to lose 29 Republicans.
Who else could get 218? While I doubt Ryan could get 218 on the first ballot, remember he was the one Republican they could find with "gravitas", who had not made sufficient enemies to prevent their election as speaker. Democrats have a plurality because Republicans are split between the conservatives and the RNC toadies. RNC toadies are terrified of allowing actual conservatives near the actual levers of power, as they might implement small government policy.
In baseball or somewhere else?
you mean he is as pure as fresh snow?
Just wait til the new and stunningly unaffordable ObamaCare price for coverage with even higher deductibles come out and Trump starts rescinding Obama’s sweetheart waiver deals to cronies and Congress
At the same time some major scandals from the pre Trump era are going to heat up.
It’s going to be an interesting fall
Trump made McConnell and Ryan his bitches. First with the forced votes on repeal and replace, then handing DACA off to them to fix, and now cutting deals with Democrats.
Trump’s made a mistake. He should not be dealing with Schumer and Pelosi, instead rank and file Democrats. Their leadership is just as bad as ours.
