House Speaker John Boehner Throws Representative Paul Ryan Under the Bus or Not?

Speaker of the House, John Boehner continues to hold the line on the policies and positions that helped the GOP lose the election in 2012…saying it wasn’t the policies that the party espouses that are the problem…but the candidates and personalities that the party chose for their ticket! Huh? Isn’t the golden boy of austerity federal budgets and I haven’t actually implemented any of my past budgets so I’ll just send the same ole same ole out there again, Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), one of the two candidates/personalities that cost them the election?

Speaker John A. Boehner said Thursday that election losses last November would not deter his party from pressing its vision of reducing the size of government and turning government health care programs largely over to the private sector — with no more tax increases.

In an interview, Mr. Boehner said that candidates and personalities — not Republican proposals on Medicare and spending cuts — accounted for the party’s defeats, taking a hard line on further budget talks even as Senate Republicans met with President Obama in a search for common ground.

“There are a lot of things that decide an election, especially the two candidates that you have, the personalities that they have, positions they have taken,” he said.

So which is it Speaker Boehner? Is candidate Paul Ryan the reason that President Obama returned to the White House or is Representative Paul Ryan the defender of the GOP holy grail in the house?

    Yes, indeedly-doodly. Would that Senate Dems have thought highly enough of Ryan’s ideas to vote for them. His Anti-American budget did not pass the Senate, and a great many of his colleagues in the upper house dared not risk voting for it only to be held to account later. Methinks Boehner doth throw Ryan under the bus… for now.

      The wheels on the bus go round and round, maybe Obama and Pelosi can get caught under there with Ryan, for continually offering up SS and Medicaid to the Republicans as a budget cut.

    There you go again, looking for logic in Republican statements. Not going to happen. Especially not when the truth is against them.
