Ryan succeeds Boehner as speaker, seeks to fix ‘broken’ House

by
October 30, 2015

Republican Rep. Paul Ryan succeeded retiring John Boehner as House speaker on Thursday, appealing for unity and “understanding” as he embarks on the tough task of trying to heal deep divisions in the party and the chamber itself.

As he took the gavel after easily winning election on the floor, the Wisconsin congressman declared “the House is broken” and called for a fresh start.

“We’re not solving problems, we’re adding to them,” Ryan said, declaring that going forward: “We are not settling scores. We are wiping the slate clean.”

The selection of Ryan marks the end of a head-spinning and unpredictable succession. Boehner shocked Washington by resigning mid-term, and only after his deputy Kevin McCarthy suddenly bowed out of the race to replace him did Ryan seek the job — after initially rebuffing appeals to do so.

    I will trust him when he stands up to Obama and doesn’t sell us out, again.

    And Boehner left after sneaking in that debt ceiling raise and handing BO card blanche. He’s despicable as a former speaker. He a trator to America and it’s citizenry. We’ll see what Ryan does. It wouldn’t surprise me if he follows suit. I hope not, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

    The comments following on this thread are the sort that get people face time with the political police in many countries. The sort of face time that gets people “disappeared.” Good thing for you that Obama is not anywhere near the tyrant you believe he is.

    • KDC

      Oh, really? You wait!

    • pete G

      SJ, ever ask yourself why he stays after gun control with laws that do absolutely nothing to fix the problem? why doesn’t he suggest armed guards in our schools, people could understand that. You need to wake up, if you’re capable.

    As long as he keeps his constituents close and the RINOs, demowits and the WH at arms length. No more: 1) back room deals, 2) “we have to pass it so we can see what’s in it” c**p, 3) we have to pass it NOW, 4) PORK BARRELL POLITICS, 5) “roads/bridges to nowhere”, 6) WH dictates, 7) SCOTUS/WH deals, 8) radical liberal, progressive, socialist, commie, muslum jihadist c**p …..

    The GOP is stepping on it’s dick again.

    • reagangs

      At least we can. The radical liberal, demowit, progressive, socialist, commie muslum jihadist girlie wimps can’t.

  • disqus_tKlEuAw2uq

    he will sell us out for the illegals

      He’s already proposed that proposition at least twice. Ryan and his good buddy Luis Gutierrez, want Immigration reform that includes amnesty. Ryan’s Liberty vote is only 58%. I am sorely disappointed in Congressman Mark Meadows who was instrumental in forcing Boehner out at Speaker. And then, the Freedom Caucus did an about-face and put another Obama-enabler in his place. Anyone of the Republicans that voted for Ryan knowing his true agenda about amnesty should be voted out when they are up for re-election. If we don’t use our votes to replace these people, with anyone who takes a pro- America stance, we will eventually lose every right our founding fathers fought and died for to create the USA as a free country. You vote them in, if they don’t keep their campaign promises and do what is right for American citizens and this country – next election, you vote them out. It is the only way to let any person running for office recognize the power the people will have over them and they had better adhere to our Constitution and the laws on our books. If we continue to just vote the same do-nothing, self-promoting, corrupt politicos into office – we’re done! We’ll be under the thumb of the UN and on our way to the One World Order that individuals in all facets of business, government and religious orders are complying with.

    Ryan just gave up one of the most powerful jobs in the house to take the most thankless one. He hasn’t a prayer of fixing the house and getting the government back working but I wish him luck. I’m sure the Tea Party will use a nice sharp knife in his back.

    • steven

      He needs a knife up his @$$.

    • S.J. Jolly

      The only way to fix the House is to fix the Republican Party. Either the traditional Republicans (aka, RINO’s) expel the Tea Party radicals or the radicals will expel the moderates. With a possible third way: The GOP gets so tied up in internal fighting that the Democrats win the House, Senate, and White House in 2016.

      • bobnstuff

        The question is are Hillary’s coattails long enough to take congress back? We know that peace in the Republican party isn’t going to happen. I think that the traditional republicans my just start working with the democrats and marginalize the Tea Party radicals since they only make up about 15% of the congress. The tail can’t wage the dog for ever.

    • KDC

      Whatever it takes to keep one on the straight and narrow. I suspect, by the last six years, there hasn’t been enough of the sharp knife being used.

  • Richard

    Time for another revolution!!!

    • podunk1

      Time for peace and understanding while celebrating by passing a bill to finance and ensure evil and bondage is a satanic victory lap, not reconciliation with God, Constitution, country, and truth!

      Flush the RINOS in 2016!

      • Richard

        We’ve tried peaceful for the last six years,signing petitions,calling senators and congresspersons, no results .
        Time to put on your big boy pants, and take care of business.
        You’re either for America, or against her. Me, I’m for,and ready to lay down my life. Are You?

        • reagangs

          Well, let’s see …. I have my fathers old WWII M1 Springfield bolt action .30 caliber rifle that I had a scope added for hunting, his S&W service .38 revolver and COLT .45 semi auto pistols, a 6mm bolt action Remington HP rifle along with a Henry .30 caliber hand lever action with a scope and lots of ammo. My re-loader is ready and waiting with lots of primers, powder and medium weight FMJ and soft point projectiles. Yeah, I’m ready.

          • Richard

            Great,but I wouldn’t put out there what I had.
            Haven’t you noticed,it’s getting aggravating trying to access conservative sites.
            Big brother Is watching and listening even more since they took over the internet.

          • Antonio

            Not so fast guys! The traitor Obuma is salivating and waiting for any move as such, so he can stay in power for God Knows how long. Why and who started this Black Lives Matter? War against local police/ Little fire here and there, soon enough and the whole country is in flame, then marshal law!! Federal police, UN takes over and I don’t care how many guns we have, he has the army on his side. And don’t tell me about that Oat thing. He dismantled the Military, firing all true good Generals and reassembled it with his crones. Look around! Who is in charge of the army, Air Force, Marine, FBI ETC. This man outsmarted all of us, well not me i see it coming, I know how dictators started, been there seeing it. It still can be fixed with the will of the people, true Americans, not with the milenius, they’re cooked frogs.

          • girls_mom

            Richard, we have to revolt at the polls, because a true revolution with grass root “minute men” [ and women, may I add:)] is what ObaMao is praying to Allah for! He has (while we were sleeping) -and the Congress “did nothing,” as usual; took his pen and phone and gave himself the power to declare “Marshall Law,” at will. We can’t afford to do anything that will give him power to round up people, declare curfews, seize weapons,burn the US Constitution and somehow declare himself “Hugo Chavez,II, or the Emperor Obama I.
            We have to hold our breath, vote out all RINOs and socialist Democrats in the coming elections……fighting for our freedom and Liberty…. so help us, George Washington! 🙂

      • S.J. Jolly

        1. The RINO’s are flushed.
        2. They, and most of the Republican voters move to a revived Whig Party, or stay home, with their checkbooks.
        3. The purified Republican Party wins one or two states in Nov’ 2016, blames it on Democrat voter fraud and the liberal media.

    • reagangs

      Will there be another American Revolution??? Maybe. Are you ready??? I am. There are tens of millions of veterans and pissed of hard working Patriotic Americans, mostly tax payers with families, ready and “loaded to the teeth”, for a fight. The Revolution actually started in 2009 with the “Tax Day” Tea Party protest. Right now, the Tea Party is giving the radical liberals, progressives, socialist, commie, muslum jihadist headaches, heart burn and lots of grief. We won’t go away. We have been/will be using old Sal Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals on them.

      • Richard

        Yes,I am. Cocked,locked,fully stocked and ready to rock!!!
        Semper Fi.

      • S.J. Jolly

        No problem. LOTS of room for you and yours in Git-mo. A few years there, with nothing else to do, and you will be fluent in Arabic, and knowledgeable in the Koran.

        • reagangs

          No, because I will take as many of them with me while I can. Does “Give me Liberty or Give me Death” mean anything to you. Your Happy Libertarian.

    • girls_mom

      We hear you Richard!! And the People will look them in the “whites of their eyes,” when their volley speaks at election time!!!

  • Dennis B Anderson
