Republicans pick Ryan for speaker; House passes budget deal

There are 42 comments on the Reuters story from Oct 29, 2015, titled Republicans pick Ryan for speaker; House passes budget deal. In it, Reuters reports that:

Republicans made Paul Ryan their choice to be the next speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday as the chamber passed a major budget and debt limit deal that would launch his tenure with far less risk of a major fiscal standoff. The nomination puts the Wisconsin congressman and 2012 Republican vice presidential candidate on track to replace retiring Speaker John Boehner on Thursday, marking a transition to a potentially more conservative House leadership stance.

Ryan: refused to take Speaker job unless his 'family time' was guaranteed.

Ryan: Opposes family leave for everyone else.

You can take anything in the Bible and make it seem as if it predicted several events in history from one verse.

This kind of coercion and agitation by evangelicals is the equivalent of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.

Bad things can and will happen as well as good things.

Anything that you or anyone else thinks they can predict is purely coincidental and self fulfilling prophecy.

So when Obama finishes his term happy and healthy and enjoying a much deserved retirement, will you give this kind of superstitious mess a rest?

Already Paul Ryan failed the Tea Party's purity test. Turns out, he isn't extreme enough. In the three years since Ryan ran as Romney's vice presidential pick, the GOP has gone completely off the rails, shifted so far right that Ryan's credentials aren't good enough for the TP fringers.

Nothing has changed. Paul Ryan is still a staunch conservative - still an advocate of slash and burn economics. He should be "one of them" - but turn on conservative radio slabber and you find folks like Limbaugh, Levine and Beck having daily melt downs over this. You'd think Ryan was a traitor. The guy is in the exact same position Bohener was - either he kowtows to the craziest of the crazies or he will get pouting, filibusters and obstruction.
