Draft Paul Ryan for president
(page 1 of 2)
Of the current herd of candidates, I support Marco Rubio. Is it possible that the Republican nominee will be none of the above?
Not since Eisenhower has the office sought the man, but maybe this is the year. Paul Ryan did not want the most powerful job in Congress, second in line for the presidency. His party came to him on bended knee — groveled, really. So, why not Paul Ryan for president?
Ryan is showing and will continue showing leadership in real time, while all the announced candidates only talk about what they would do or what they have done. Paul Ryan is doing it, present tense.
Ryan is passing legislation, warning a weak and vacillating President Obama about closing down Gitmo, about admitting potential terrorists into the U.S. He demands victory, not containment.
“What happened in Paris is pure evil … it’s clear this was an act of war and that the world needs American leadership. The National Defense Bill … will require the president to come up with a plan for defeating ISIS, not just containing, but defeating ISIS. A containment plan is not enough.”
Our strategy: We win, they lose. He is rewriting the Republican narrative to one of opportunity and growth. Ryan is the true heir to Reagan, via Jack Kemp, who himself tutored Reagan.
America wants resolve; that is why the Donald leads. Not a thousand nuances and “if buts.” No blaming Christianity for fighting back against Islamic aggression 1,000 years ago. Certain and resolved, that’s Paul Ryan.
Grounded, middle class, a deer hunter. Doesn’t live in Washington, D.C. but in Janesville, Wis., with the wife and kids.
He’s next gen, conservative, and tested. A young gun who can work the establishment. Has the vision thing. Understands how Washington works and why it doesn’t. Can explain tax code to the first grader in all of us. In any debate, would make Hillary Clinton sound like Admiral Stockdale with Tourette syndrome.
Could next summer’s Republican national convention turn to Ryan after the current thundering herd chews each other up? Paul Ryan for president.
