Ryan says he´s weighing
possible White House run

Associated Press, by Kevin Freking

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/25/2014 10:42:16 AM

WASHINGTON — Paul Ryan was No. 2 on the Republicans´ presidential ballot in 2012, and the Wisconsin congressman is thinking about whether he´ll try to move to the top of his party´s ticket in 2016. When asked on Sunday about the possibility of running, Ryan said he and his family will "take very seriously and weigh" the decision next year. Ryan has said he is not eager to spend even more time away from his small Wisconsin hometown where he and his wife, Janna, have raised their own family. Ryan tells CBS´ "Face the Nation" his new book is designed to unify

Comments:
Oh great. Now I know why Romney/Ryan have been hitting the media circuit. He may be a really nice guy, but he has shown his true colors and is not presidential material. I don´t care if he prefaces his statements on immigration with securing the border first, we all know Obama will NEVER obey the law anyway. A huge percentage of Americans are now against it. It´s pure insanity to continue to pursue it while Obama is in office and a suicide mission for Republicans.

Must enjoy losing. For the life of me how can he not see he is not up for the job. We have had a huge loser for the last six years and are not interested in a "Republican" this time that is a loser. We want a LEADER!

You´re wasting your time Paul Ryan unless you´re running as a Dem. Even then you won´t get much support. Your best bet is to retire and go back into private sector

When looking for the reasons why (how) Romney could have lost against the empty suit, Ryan is often overlooked as a factor.

The guy is perhaps the last best hope for Conservatism in America. He is a descendent of Reagan and Kemp, free market people who understand the intellectual foundations of America and Conservatisim.
The party has been dominated for a generation by mediocre big government Bush loyalists who never met a tough issue that couldn´t be ignored or a government program that couldn´t be expanded or a supporter who couldn´t be rewarded with a subsidy, tax break or a government job. Like Kemp, Ryan has always been focused on how free markets and government policies can improve things for people in places that liberal republicans directed by Rove have shown little concern. He´s offered an alternative to the Rove/Schumer/Bush gang of eight let em in, give em a vote, who needs borders approach to immigration. He was without equal staring down Obama and pointing out just how economically flawed Obama was. That the severely conservative candidate in 2012 made it clear that he wasn´t strongly opposed to government run health care is hardly on Ryan.
Like him or not, it shows a lack of understanding to reject him out of hand as another liberal republican. That he ain´t.

He is NOT a Conservative. No decent Conservative would even consider what Ryan has been considering with regards to immigration reform. He has a tin ear when it comes to We the People yelling at him. I will not support him or any other Republican that will not secure the border, return all illegals to whence they came, and terminate the anchor baby BeeEss. And that´s just for a starter....

4 more years of suffering under Obamacare because he won´t do a thing to repeal it.
ALL crooked agencies still will get 10% increases every year.

Ryan will either run for 2016 or wait until his youngest begins college. I,d bet on the latter. His kids are important to him. He says he doesn´t want to run for speaker because he would prefer to spend his weekends at home with his wife and kids.

Ryan´s only 44. Her will bide his time while doing important work in Congress.

No no no. The presidential hopefuls don´t have to announce they just write books & see how the sales go. Why would Ryan run? He lost his energy months before Romney´s loss. What a let down. Ryan is too weak. He lost his credibility when he threw the military to the wind with his so called budget that cuts spending in 10 years. What a joke.

I like Paul Ryan, but I agree with the other commenters that he is a little weak. And his wife is a democrat? It would be nice to have a Republican president whose wife is not a liberal, when is the last time? It seems all of our first ladies in recent years support gay marriage and a bunch of other liberal agendas.

Good coomment, #26: no use shooting down lots of non-candidates. I agree with #5: we want a leader. However, I´ve yet to see one among all those who have expressed an interest in running.

Sure, there are several nice guy governors with a bit of spine, but none have shone they can galvanize the party and independents nationwide.

The Republican primaries have all the substance of a fart in a hurricane. At this point, all we are doing is picking out who will lose to the Dem in the general. So... since we can´t win, why the heck not nominate a conservative? At least we can say we tried.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

President Obama next week will hit the road to receive updates on bombings against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and efforts to contain the Ebola virus in Africa.

The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — In front of a boisterous pub crowd of young voters here, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it. Paul focused much of his remarks on executive overreach by President Barack Obama, saving some of his most interesting points for a question-and-answer session

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight
