American Greatness: It’s been obvious for two years that retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has no intention of helping Republicans keep their congressional majority, since that would also mean helping President Donald Trump. Not something he’s ever been eager to do.
Now Ryan seems to be saying it wouldn’t bother him if Republicans lose in November, as long as they do it for what he calls “the right reasons.”
That’s the basic message in a pre-midterm video Ryan recently emailed to his congressional colleagues. During the 57-second communiqué he offers his parting thoughts on sacrificing career ambitions for an unspecified greater good.
“We have people who are here [in Congress],” Ryan says, “who want to do the right thing for the right reasons, who believe in principles and getting things done and they’re willing to lose their seat over it.”
Left unmentioned is what “the right thing” might be, or why anyone in the GOP majority should have to lose his or her seat for doing it.If November 6 is D-Day, Ryan sounds like he’s preparing his troops for defeat. Fortunately, most stopped paying attention to him a long time ago. MORE HERE
