Paul Ryan’s Exit: “A Scam of a Party Says Goodby to Its Top Fraud”

Paul Ryan has announced he will not seek re-election in November, stating as his main reason the need to spend more times with the kids. Many observers believe that clearly played a role, but equally–or more–likely, Ryan is fed up with his Party’s drift and chaos, he expects the Democrats to be the majority party next January, and his own re-election is far from certain.  Here are some commentaries, and IndieDems response.

A scam of a party says goodbye to its top fraud

(Excerpts)...shows just how hollow the conservative project in America has become…After 15 months with total control of the government, Ryan and his colleagues achieved almost nothing, and he has now decided that there is nothing more to do…Ryan failed at both his pretend goal and his real goal…when it comes to legislation, the Republicans’ time in power has pretty much consisted of trying and failing to repeal the ACA, cutting taxes, and calling it a day…

Paul Ryan was always a fraud. He pretended to be a wonk’s wonk, but his budget and policy plans were full of sleight-of-hand and magic asterisks that fell apart on the most superficial examination…And he pretended to be scandalized by Trump’s repugnant words and actions but, after a few regretful words and a furrowing of his brow, would always go right back to supporting the president. 

IndieDems Comment: Waldman has written the pluperfect description of Paul Ryan’s personal and political character. He is a hollow man, a liar, hypocrite, coward, and flim-flam artist beyond compare. And thank you, sir, for reminding people, as I do, that Ryan is a disciple of the atheistic, anti-Christian doctrines of Ayn Rand. In fact, Ryan announced at the beginning of his political career that Rand was the inspiration for his choosing politics, and he would dedicate his life to implementing her “Virtues of Selfishness.” He never wavered.

Paul Ryan’s Devastating Timing

IndieDems Comments: I presume any sentiment human being knows Ms. Tumulty has accurately described Paul Ryan as one of the most sniveling cowards ever to hold high public office in the United States. That is Ryan’s chief legacy. What a wretched, depraved person he is.

The similarity between Republicans like Paul Ryan who support Donald Trump as president, no matter how corrupt and immoral he proves to be, and the Germans who supported Adolph Hitler while rapping his knuckles for starting a war and implementing the Holocaust, becomes more glaringly apparent every day.

German cowards and sycophants brought the Nazis to power. Cowards and sycophants like Paul Ryan brought Donald Trump to power and keep him there. Ryan has uttered not one word expressing serious criticism of Trump, much less separated himself from Trump’s agenda. On the contrary. Ryan has been and remains a faithful Trump lap dog, a fervent supporter of Trump’s legislative acts.
