Skip to comments.Is Paul Ryan replacing Boehner ?
Posted on 12/21/2012 8:32:18 PM PST by ncalburt
From what I’ve been hearing from Ryan, doesn’t sound like much of an improvement.
At least Ryan won’t cry - I hope.
I’m not gonna cry about it.
Ryan would be OK; but Issa would be better still. Just not Boener.
Probably right about that .
There have been all these articles about how Ryan is a total Boehner lackey lately. Besides, Ryan is 0% different than Boehner. Ryan doesn’t believe in and spending cuts, except in the continual future. Now he believes in spending cuts 5 years in the future. Five years from now, the spending cuts will be 5 years in the future. Five years after that, spending cuts will be 5 years from then. The spending cuts magically never happen. Ryan does not believe in actual spend cuts. Ever.
(Based on voting history)
Issa would be interesting !
He took out Dem Gov Grey in Ca a few years back
I think Issa is where exactly he needs to be. We need somebody why can excel at keeping Democrats feet to the fire, through a slow roaster.
Ryan is acceptable, because he knows the financial figures and can go toe-to-toe with any of the Democrats.
WTF—do you have a transcript to post a video clip??
But K St needs a new face and Boner is spent !
whatever it takes to bring the democrat’s march to a halt, I’m for it.
Link blew up from Hotair !
Hotair link is from Fox News show tonight with Laura hosting .
I'd rather see Laura Ingraham replace Boehner.
They needed a fresh new face
She is way more sharper
I'm not sure that Ryan would be that great of an improvement over Boehner/Boner. That being said, I also am not so sure of his ability to go toe-to-toe against the rabid demoRATs. In the VP debate, Biden & what's-her-face the moderator, steamrolled over Ryan and he looked scared & unsure against the dumbest demoRAT in Washington DC. Biden steamrolled him continuously and the most that Ryan could muster was a sick look on his face.
Way more sharperer.
As I stated, what Ryan has been saying publicly the past few weeks does not give me any confidence that he'll be any different than Boehner.
Pelosi will back the House next years midterm and none of them want to be in that Speaker seat then.
No, they will sit by and vote 'no' and the slow and dim Boner will continue to be the goat and get the blame.
Ryan came out supporting plan B so this is more silliness.
Any nominee for speaker should undergo a physical examination to determine if he is a eunoch.
Friend of mine calls that a “bow wave.” You never get there.
Do you think you could have said that without the F word and all of us would still understand your question?
Watching Ryan change during the campaign and him being in full support of Plan ‘B’, what difference would he make.
Ryan won that debate. The tactic Ryan took was the right tactic, because even the most liberal journalists were calling out Biden for coming across as a jackass for laughing at the most inappropriate times, like the fact that Iran has nukes, (heeheehahahahohoho). If Ryan, or anybody, had gotten all-powerful and told Biden to shut his pie hole, if he had nothing to say, the media would have played if as though Ryan was too temperamental and reactive to be a sober choice for VP.
Ryan did good. Many of the other factors were simply stacked against them this election season. You can have the perfect candidate, and still lose.
I think you posted the exact same comment to me yesterday !
Are you working off a script ?
I nominate Allan West!
Don’t know .
I think Boner is toast and K st needs a new face .
Sarah Palin as whip!
Naa.. Mark Levin for speaker!
Yeah I screwed up her name but my spelling is way easier and came from
my iPhone so it must be right !
Whoever does I hope it’s a man with a set of balls. I’d like to see someone who can state the facts, doesn’t give a damn about political correctness and would be an “in your face” liberal hater. Calls Obama out for what he he is, a useless POS that dumb ass Americans voted for, Harry Reid is a pathetic rat that needs to get thrown out with the trash along with the rest of the liberal scum in Washington and states he has a concealed carry permit and wouldn’t have a problem taking out nut cases with his AR-15.
Then I’d be happy... otherwise it’s the SOS.
Ryan is non-confrontational. Just dont try to snow him in debate. I dont know what options he has at this point, however.
That’s simply not true. Ryan outpolled Biden everywhere in that debate. Part of that was bidens bizarre behavior, but Ryan had many great answers. He was the adult in the room. There were opportunities missed but that always the case. It was his first debate in a national election.
I suggest you and other critics pull up video of te health care summit in 2010 and watch Ryan obliterate Obama to his face. He has great communication skills and can make the arguments.
We will see .
I think Boner is no longer useful for the Lobbyist crowd .
I been hitting all the ‘replace Boner’ comments with the reply that he will get no challengers and why.
If you had a real point/opinion on this you would have made it, but you did the above instead.
I wish for that too
Ryan was #2. What he was saying in public was not what he was saying in private. The handling of the 47% did not make him happy.
Get new material .
I told ya Boner was a gonner !
I dont remember that specifically. But that doesn’t mean you didn’t.
You mean this will happen before Pelosi takes back the House in 2015 and O gets to finish everything he started? I know he will not be speaker in 2015, that will be Pelosi.
So what fool are you saying will try to be in that Speaker seat when Pelosi whips them in 2014?
Excellent choice, if true.
Sorry, this is your vanity LOL
You think its Ryan...HAH_HAH_HA.
Tell you what . lets revisit this in March when Ryan is still working for Boner.
In a perfect world, I would want a conservative with -
- The attitude and cunning of a street fighter.
- The communication skills of someone like Ronald Reagan or Newt Gingrich.
- The ability and willingness to run to the cameras and microphones at every opportunity.
- A spine of steel.
Now, where can we get such a person?
“Pelosi will back the House next years midterm and none of them want to be in that Speaker seat then.”
“Ryan came out supporting plan B so this is more silliness.”
Nancy Peolosi will be the Speaker after 2014. Ryan is very weak.
The GOP has ZERO credibility on spending, deficits, and taxes. The GOP has ZERO credibility on integrity. The GOP is seen by the American people as out of touch, buffoonish, and beholden to special interests.
The GOP Establishment has sandbagged genuine conservatives and foisted RINOs upon us every chance it could. The GOP Establishment would rather have Democrats run Washington DC than have genuine conservatives have power.
The GOP deserves the upcoming electoral disaster in 2014 - it has brought it upon itself.
It is time to SMASH the GOP and send it to the ash heap of history.
I have written and posted 50+ vanities here but I never posted one as empty as this one, where the entire body is the single word ‘none’’
your Point ?? ‘none’
what we learned ?? ‘none’
your argument ?? ‘none’
...proof ?? ‘none’
.... what ?? ‘none’
return for time wasted reading ‘none’,
