    So tell me, again, about Paul Ryan

    So tell me, again, about Paul Ryan

    New reports have surfaced (h/t CharlieSykes) that Paul Ryan is reconsidering his prior decision not to run for President:

    As Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan comes to a final decision about running for president, several top national conservatives are encouraging him to join the race. Ryan, who has been seriously but quietly considering a presidential bid for several months, is expected to decide on a run in the next two weeks

    Perhaps you could tell me again about Ryan, now with the benefit of knowing who (most of) the Republican candidates are.


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    “Gravitas” has the appearance of competence, but no one will know if it is true of any candidate until a few months into a new President’s term.

    Until then, may the best actor or actress candidate win.

    Lots of good folks in the mix, lots. The focus has been on domestic policies, serious to be sure, but we’ve heard practically nothing from anyone with foreign policy experience where the present administration’s record is equally atrocious and dangerous to people everywhere in the world. I want to hear from John Bolton. He has a lot of hands-on foreign policy experience, broad government experience at high levels, understands the connection between our economic health and international well being, and understands America. Go ahead, someone, say it: another Yale lawyer. Yeah, that’s a little scary.

    […] Paul Ryan will announce his final decision/intentions in a week or two after everyone thought he was a definite “no go.” If he gets in we’re sure he will be fully vetted (unlike Barack Obama). […]

    Most DC politicians are at a disadvantage due to their experience. I much prefer outsiders which pretty much means governors.

    I call him the real deal.
    Sure, Paul Ryan does not have the executive experience many would like but he comes at a time when this Nation is threatened to be economically ripped apart. He is the only person who has submitted a plan to deal with our economic future. He will raise the discourse to an adult level which Obama will not be able to comprehend (cue Obama scratching his head/face with his middle finger).
    He is competent/articulate enough to deal with all the demagoguery the Democrats will throw at him. With Ryan at the top of the ticket, the Democrats bankruptcy of ideas will become apparent, even to non political junkies.
