Paul Ryan, 2016?
Hot Air, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/23/2014 1:12:58 PM

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward. On Tuesday, the Federal Election Commission approved of a nationwide book tour sponsored by Ryan’s publisher and the Political Action Committee the Wisconsin congressman founded, Prosperity Action PAC. “The book will address “the state of the conservative movement in America today, discuss how it contrasts with liberal progressivism, and explain what must be done to save what Representative Ryan refers to as the

After Ryan allowed Biden to dominate if not own their one debate in 2012, why would anyone believe that he could win a debate against Hillary, the fake Indian, Biden or any other Dem?

Garfield is the only sitting member of the House to be elected President. That was in 1880. He was also elected to the Senate in 1880. But he was still a member of the House. He should have become a senator, safer job.

same thing will happen as always. True leaders and conservatives like Cruz/Walker/Palin/Ect... will split primary votes and then a double crossing, amnesty loving candidate will win primary state after primary state with only about 30% of the vote. Conservatives have no voice in the Republican party, and it is very intentional. To get a true representative candidate, primary votes should be proportioned by the percent vote you recieve, instead Republicans do winner takes all. 30% of the vote gets you 100% of the state.

Sorry, but no.

I had such hope for Ryan, seeing how bright and serious he was. He took budget discussions by the horns, and stood up to Obama in a way that showed his steel.

But, for some reason, he changed. I don´t know if it was that he was bludgeoned daily by Romney´s handlers. I don´t know if it was that he was wooed by the cunning, duplicitous elders in the Congress. Whatever the reason, he went soft.

He seems to be trying to get his conservative cred back up, but it´s too late for me...barring something so bold that would make me believe again. I just don´t feel we have the time to roll the same dice again.

It´s with great disappointment that I find myself saying this.

The book should be excellent. Paul Ryan can write about the conservative movement in an impartial manner, since he is not a part of it.

He can offer balanced perspective since he shares so common with his democratic brothers especially in regards to amnesty and forfeiting our borders.

Hat tip, #18. Ryan could not even whip Biden in the VP debate. He has never done anything but go from college to government "service". He is far far from what we need in the next President. However, we know the game and it´s a prosperous game. Possible buzz about possible Prez run equals book deals, speaking engagements and cable TV attention. In other words, $$$$$$$.

However you wish to define the act of allowing undocumented people with jobs and no criminal activity to register, pay a fine and get in line for citizenship, that is a far cry from the Rove/Bush and Schumer gang of eight plan to grant em all, not penalize the employers who profited from all this. Not all amnesty plans are the same, not all are by design going to give democrats a permanent majority, and certainly not the plans set forward by Ryan,
As to the military, every government pension holder is going to have to face the unpleasant reality of contributing to their own costs. That hardly makes him antiMilitary.
Ryan stands as the standard bearer for the Kemp lineage of the party---- the guy that would have kept the Reagan revolution going. Absent evidence to the contrary, remains firmly with Reagan wing of the party, along with Cruz and Palin and Lee and Brownback and Jindal. Contrast him with Rove, his entire career has been with Conservatives. He is undoubtedly a policy wonk and a budget hawk, as evidenced by his confrontations with the President during the health care debates.
We could do a lot worse. We have done a lot worse.

But he´s got hella competition in the primaries - Walker, Perry, Cruz and Jindal look awfully good. I especially think Cruz is sounding presidential.

My neighbor has known Ryan for many years. As a far rightist, he is disappointed in Ryan. I don´t like his amnesty position, I consider him a number cruncher, but he has the rest of the package. I´m not saying no, in spite f reservations. Cruz has got to ditch his Preacher style or the media will finish him off as fast as you can say Elmer Gantry. He´s our brightest star, but like Hucklabee, his unctuous style will turn off moderates of both parties.

I would have to say no on Ryan. For one he couldn´t hold his own in his one debate with a bufoonish idiot in Biden. Now picture him in a serious debate with someone with a little bit more brain power. Remember how Reagan slapped Mondull upside the head in 84. That´s how it´s done. Secondly his budget flack with veterans benefits. Despite what people say when you take from the best of us to make yourself look good and try to back track when called on it. What does that say about your character. Ditto on amnesty. As far as I´m concerned his presidential aspirations can stay "in the shadows" along with the illegal aliens.

At the very end of Matt Bai’s New York Times Magazine feature about Gary Hart that could be titled “Hart-less: The Original Bimbo Eruption,” there’s a short passage that puts on full display the irrepressible presumption of liberalism—or perhaps it’s another example of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Here’s how the piece ends: “It’s what he could have done for this country that I think bothers him to this very day,” Lee [Hart] said. “Well, at the very least, George W. Bush wouldn’t have been president,” [Gary] Hart said ruefully. This sounded a little narcissistic, but it was, in fact, a hard premise to

With his decision to use force against the violent extremists of the Islamic State, President Obama is doing more than to knowingly enter a quagmire. He is doing more than play with the fates of two half-broken countries—Iraq and Syria—whose societies were gutted long before the Americans appeared on the horizon. Obama is stepping once again—and with understandably great reluctance—into the chaos of an entire civilization that has broken down. Arab civilization, such as we knew it, is all but gone. The Arab world today is more violent, unstable, fragmented and driven by extremism—the extremism of the rulers and those in

The 2014 November midterm elections are nearly here, and Democratic and Republican candidates across the country are bracing for the inevitable conclusion to months of campaigning. But even as certain forecast models downgrade the GOP’s chances for taking Congress’ upper chamber, several recent polls signal that Republicans will indeed walk away from November with many victories and perhaps a Senate majority. Here are the top nine polls from this week that hint at good news for the GOP: Colorado: In a Quinnipiac survey released Thursday, Rep.

FOR THE sake of the cameras, President Obama assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a White House meeting Thursday that “not only do we support Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence in words, but we’ve also been supporting it in deeds.” If only that were true. The reality is that the beleaguered Ukrainian leader left Washington backed by considerable rhetoric from the Obama administration but little with which he can turn back the continuing Russian aggression against his country. In an emotional address to Congress, Mr. Poro­shenko described Ukraine as fighting for Western democratic values as well as its own survival, and he

The seven-month scandal that is threatening Roger Goodell´s future as NFL commissioner began with an unexpected phone call in the early morning hours on a Saturday in February. Just hours after running back Ray Rice knocked out his then-fiancée with a left hook at the Revel Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Baltimore Ravens´ director of security, Darren Sanders, reached an Atlantic City police officer by phone. While watching surveillance video -- shot from inside the elevator where Rice´s punch knocked his fiancée unconscious -- the officer, who told Sanders he just happened to be a Ravens fan, described

The family of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, has filed a $2 million claim against the CIA and the State Department. Barbara Doherty, the CIA contractor and former SEAL’s mother, filed a claim last week with the two government agencies for $1 million each. The family does not believe there was adequate security at the U.S. diplomatic outpost and a CIA annex when they were attacked Sept. 11, 2012. Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the CIA, said the agency would have no comment on the potential litigation, the Associated Press reported Friday. The

The conventional wisdom concerning the comparative generalship of Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant was established almost immediately after the Civil War. Despite his role as, in the words of Frederick Douglass, “the rebel chieftain,” Lee has been portrayed as surpassing all others on both sides of the conflict not only in soldierly virtue but also in magnanimity and humanity. Indeed, for decades, no Civil War figure, not even Abraham Lincoln, has exceeded the reputation of Robert E. Lee. Lee has been described as the perfect soldier — a Christian and a gentleman as well as a peerless commander who

With little fanfare, President Obama has enjoyed remarkable success in his project to remake the federal courts in his own ideological image. How much more he achieves during his final two years in office depends in large part on whether Republicans win control of the Senate this November. Obama’s success is most marked in the federal courts of appeals, the intermediate level of the national judicial hierarchy. When Obama took office, only 1 of the 13 appellate courts had a majority of Democratic appointees. Now 9 do. Obama’s number of confirmed appellate nominees—53—only slightly exceeds President George W. Bush’s six-year total

Why commissioner and not GOP nominee?

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

(Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security
