Ducking Blame One Last Time — Ryan's Finale

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan R-Wis. told Republican lawmakers Wednesday he will not run for re-election

Well, depending on the outcome of November elections it may not be up to them ... which at this point is just fine with us.

"You all know I did not seek this job", Ryan said, addressing reporters. "I took it reluctantly", he told reporters - again - at the press conference. And I have no regrets whatsoever for having accepted this responsibility. A source close to Ryan said this was not true, however.

And it's not likely that will change anytime soon.

Ryan has three teenage children.

"I think we have achieved a heck of a lot", Ryan said, noting that Republicans "did big things". "This really was two things: I have accomplished much of what I came here to do".

It will be a loss, no matter how Ryan spins it.

He also voiced unease at candidate Trump's call for banning the entry of Muslims into the United States and his criticism of a Mexican-American U.S. judge. Sign in or Sign up today! In 2010, President Obama signed the act into law.

In a strongly Democratic political environment like this one, Washington's Dave Reichert and New Jersey's Frank LoBiondo were arguably the two most valuable possible retirement for the Democrats.

Ryan's announcement marked the latest upheaval in Washington in the second year of Trump's presidency, following the firings and resignations of a series of senior White House officials and Cabinet members.

A self-styled budget guru, Ryan had made tax cuts a centerpiece of his legislative agenda - and a personal cause - which Congress delivered on that late last year.

Ryan joined a growing list of lawmakers who have decided against seeking re-election.

Ryan, who has had a difficult relationship with Trump, thanked the president for giving him the chance to move the GOP ahead.

"Trump as president has been a challenge for traditional Republicans like Ryan".

The party, deeply fractured between conservatives and moderates, has been described as ungovernable.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, in a telephone interview from Italy, said Ryan likely grew "tired" of the job. "What I realised is if I serve for one more term my kids will only have known me as a weekend dad". That was good news for the large majorities who support Medicare, but has to count as a sound defeat for Ryan.

In 2016, Trump slammed Ryan as a "very weak and ineffective leader". Trump wrote in a Twitter post. "Kevin reached out early on to have a dialogue. and they just developed a trust over time".

Tributes poured in from fellow Republicans including Trump, who called him "a truly good man". He also touts his "legacy of achievement that nobody can question". British and French forces can be expected to take part in the response. He interned for Wisconsin GOP Sen. Help new listeners discover the show by leaving us a rating and review on iTunes. "That's got to be a nightmare for any speaker of the House". He says the headwinds facing Republicans in November played no factor in his decision.

In retrospect, this is a clear and obvious choice that makes sense for Ryan at this moment in time. But Ryan and Ross's districts were on the Swing Left map of seats the group considers "winnable" before they announced their retirement.

He became the GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012.

"Meet the new boss: Same as the old boss", we wrote.

Referring to removing Mueller, Republican Senator Bob Corker said on Tuesday it would be a "massive mistake for the president to do that", adding he had told the president as much. He will retire in January, at the conclusion of his term. They often become lightning rods for political partisanship. They stifled any and all attempts to enact sensible gun laws. Janesville teacher Cathy Myers was also running on the Democratic side. If you put some distance with president, those in the Resistance movement will say you're a sycophant; it's never enough. The primary is Aug. 14.

Dent said Ryan was always a "reluctant speaker" who was frustrated by the GOP divisions and the Trump administration.
