The establishment wing of the Republican party is finally getting its wish.
After meeting with House Republicans this evening, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
admitted during a press conference that he was willing to run for Speaker of the Housebut only if they met a list of demands of what it would take to get him to run.
We as a conference should unify now and not after a divisive Speaker election, Ryan said, calling for Republicans to gather as a team and move from an opposition party to being a proposition party.
Ryans list of demands appeared to highlight party unity but also party loyalty, as he criticized the chaos in the Republican caucus, leading to Boehners resignation.
According to Ryans spokesperson Brendan Buck, his demands included a change in the process for motion to vacate the chair.
No matter who is speaker, they cannot be successful with this weapon pointed at them all the time, Buck told reporters before Ryans speech.
Ryan signaled that the partisan brinkmanship had to come to an end.
We have become the problem, Ryan said. If my colleagues entrust me to be the Speaker I want us to become the solution.
Ryan urged his House colleagues to stop blaming the other party, the president, and the media for blocking their agenda.

Thank God we did not elect him VP.
We need a good conservative from the South as I am convinced Northern Republicans are our real enemies.

So....the RINO agrees to accept coronation, but only if the grown-ups swear off participating in the direction of the House? Woo hoo, where do I sign? [/s]
These rat-bastards just don’t want to get a clue, do they...
Paul Ryan is the front man for the Cheap Labor/CoC lobby. If he becomes Speaker the Republican party is dead.

Bullying and shaming isn’t going to budge the Conservative Colleagues. Stop cryin, Ryan.

There isn’t a bigger Republican Amnesty supporter in the House than Paul “Mr. Amnesty” Ryan.

Ryan has the endorsement of Harry Reid. That alone should disqualify him.
He sounds like a whiny spoiled brat!
