Another indication of the coming Blue Wave is this spineless cretin going over the side. Anyone really think he would leaving otherwise ?

But he didn't abolish Obamacare. Or Social Security. Or Medicare.

So many terrible government programs left to destroy!

True I wonder what his next gig will be?

From running as a Vice Presidential candidate to running scared. 'buk,buk,buk...ba-KAW'!

The door couldn't possibly hit his ass hard enough on the way out.

And lacking the stones to actually act as a leader of a co-equal independent branch of government and take action over the insane and corrupt president, Ryan's instead riding out of town hoping the stink hasn't permanently attached to him.

do they get extra money \ pension or something for 'retiring' rather than face losing the vote?

I've said it before and I will say it again....

There is no actual leadership in the GOP. The party is led by Limbaugh and Hannity and everyone eventually has to do their bidding. It must be exhausting to even consider being an actual leader with that as the backdrop.

When you have to talk someone into taking a job, as they did with Ryan, it was pretty much a given he would bail when it got tough. It might open the door for someone who is even more conservative and ideological to fill his seat. I keep hearing people trumpet the Blue Wave, but I will believe it when I see it. Trump himself could come to Oklahoma and shit on our most holy site -- the 50-yardline at Owen Field -- and the GOP would still own all five seats in the House and both Senate seats. Hoping other red states can manage to go a little purple, because it ain't happening here.

The Democrats have to guard against overconfidence. Running on "Not Trump" won't be enough to turn the Senate, much less the House. The Tea Party may have been damned opposed to Obama in 2010, but they also had issues they could work on -- deficit reduction, tax reform. The Democrats have to come up with something.

Yup the same job he ran for the last time he put being in congress ahead of his children (if the tweet is true).

They were in session 131 days last year.

We really need an eye-roll emoji.

He's a spineless shit who tolerates bigotry and prejudice while helping the 1% loot the country at the cost of the rest of us. It's Trump redux. Same tune, different vocalist. Good news being there is enough of his "accomplishments" to make that campaign a rather tough sell in the general.

And this is exactly how the dems can screw it up. Democratic voters tend not to show up for midterms. "Not Trump" isn't going to bring them out. You need to tell them how you will make their lives better.

And its actually more than just the GOP, but throughout the conservative movement. The is why we have Le Pen and Bannon feted at major conservative forums, and Geert Wilders spreading his bile here while conservatives pick up his reelection tab.

To paraphrase Mona Charen its gone from discussion of economics to invitations of blood and soil proponents in more than a few places
