Paul Ryan Will Not Seek Re-Election

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 7:22 am

He didn’t do anything meaningful that others could not have done, and he failed at a lot. But others probably would have failed under the same circumstances. I don’t see anything uniquely bad about this one man that explains failure to reform entitlements or rein in spending. And if you think ObamaCare will finally be repealed now that the evil Ryan is out, you have learned nothing.

At least the way for Paul Nehlen is now clear! (He said, hoping he was joking.)

UPDATE: I wish I had more time to blog, but other chewy news items include Trump threatening Russia by tweet, and Russia responding by threatening American troops if we send missiles to Syria. So long, mom, I’m off to drop the bomb, so don’t wait up for me. Also, Andrew C. McCarthy’s piece on the Cohen searches is excellent. Read it.

  1. Ryan was never right for this position. He is a wonk, not a leader. Choosing the right leader matters.

    What an incredible waste of a Republican President and Congressional majority, but I won’t blame only Republicans. Americans consistently choose poor leaders.

  3. Yup, DRJ, the electorate is to blame in the end. I don’t think it’s just that they choose poor leaders. They choose leaders who do the things they want done. Which are bad.

    Well, that’s even more depressing.
