    Paul Ryan not running

    Paul Ryan not running

    Makes sense.  Very good guy, but didn’t seem to have his heart in it.

    Via ABC:

    After much speculation and some pressure from fellow Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin and the House Budget Committee Chairman, says he is NOT running for President.

    “I sincerely appreciate the support from those eager to chart a brighter future for the next generation.  While humbled by the encouragement, I have not changed my mind, and therefore I am not seeking our party’s nomination for President.  I remain hopeful that our party will nominate a candidate committed to a pro-growth agenda of reform that restores the promise and prosperity of our exceptional nation.  I remain grateful to those I serve in Southern Wisconsin for the unique opportunity to advance this effort in Congress.”

    Somewhere Karl Rove and Jeb Bush are sitting in a corner hugging each other and crying like babies.

    I would like to see Palin run. I think she could handle herself and O very well. She has become even stronger, thanks to the MSM. If O continues to destroy our country, I believe a lot of voters will change their minds about her and give her a chance.

    Yay! I luvz teh Ryan–however, his particular strength is as the guardian of the purse strings in the House. That’s what he’s best at, that’s what he’s spent his congressional career working on. We need him there. If we get a conservative president, someone will need to ride herd on the Dems and RINOs in Congress to keep them away from the money. Ryan’s just the guy.

    And, correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it King David who praised warriors that “stand by the stuff” as being equally important as those on the battlefield? That’s the role I see for Ryan–just as honorable and just as necessary.

    Yep, Ryan, it’s best to leave the race to the woman who has the fire in the belly. She’ll beat the guys who think it is their turn.
