Right. And I luck him good wish.
The speaker reflects on Donald Trump and fatherhood in an interview hours after his surprise retirement announcement. The party he leads is on course for a drubbing, and possibly a historic drubbing. Since his announced retirement, Ryan's seat shifted from solid Republican to lean Republican, according to a new assessment by David Wasserman, who watches House seats closely for the independent Cook Political Report. The rats are fleeing a sinking ship. "That's not making things hard, that's actually facilitating real reform".
But if Mr Ryan had the party in his hands, Mr Donald Trump pulled it away. GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the district by 5 points in 2012, when Ryan was on the ballot as the vice presidential nominee. Rather than alienating Trump, he would try to ignore the insane tweet du jour and focus on doing his job. Ryan can't survive as long as he's symbiotically attached to a man who defended neo-Nazis, bragged about sexually assaulting women and is the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation.
"I see these as lasting victories that make this country more prosperous and more secure for decades to come", Ryan said. By doing nearly nothing to stymie Trump's momentum, Ryan compromised his squeaky clean reputation, which might explain why he's chose to jump ship. "I'm grateful for the president to give us this chance to actually get this stuff done", he said.
"Not at all", Ryan maintained. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings. A self-styled budget guru, Ryan had made tax cuts a centrepiece of his legislative agenda, and a personal cause, and Congress delivered on that late previous year.
"Then, when he leaves the White House, they revert back". "When we first got in and talked about repealing and replacing Paul Ryan, there were a few people that said it's an impossible task", he says.
Now Republicans are dashing for the exits. Several GOP veterans have announced plans to retire in recent months and another, Rep. Dennis Ross of Florida, quickly followed Ryan on Wednesday. To adapt Reagan's words for a bleaker age, the Republican Party left Paul Ryan, so he is leaving politics.
"We can all read between the lines", Dent said. "You're really in a no-win position if you're running in this cycle", he said, calling it a "pretty damn toxic political environment".
The Bayou State produces almost a third of all the oil and gas in the United States and has the greatest concentration of crude oil refineries, petrochemical production facilities and natural gas processing plants in the Western Hemisphere.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who heads the Freedom Caucus, said a candidate's willingness to listen to all lawmakers is "probably the top priority" for backing someone.
They held an average lead of about 7.8 points in the last 10 surveys posted on the website Real Clear Politics, while they held some kind of lead in every single one of the 61 surveys posted this year.
No one quite thought Scalise had the bona fides to climb much higher in the GOP ranks recently. No speaker has given up the gavel on his own terms since Democrat Tip O'Neill in 1987. From 2009 to 2016, Ryan was the most important man in the Republican Party, he claims, but now he seems like a throwback to a different era.
Ryan might assume that American voters are so unsophisticated that they will appraise his career as though it existed in a snow globe independent of Trump and everything that he represents.
"I don't think the oil and gas industry, the solar industry or the alternative coal industry would have a problem with either one of them", said Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), the former Energy and Commerce Committee chairman who has always been allied with the energy industry.
