Is Paul Ryan trying to look Presidential?

It seems like Paul Ryan is working very hard at running for a future presidential campaign.  Everything is so well staged. Everything appears to be dignified. Most notably things seem to make him appear like a young Jack Kennedy. It seems like Ryan’s handlers are preparing him to look like a leader for a run for something bigger, in the near future.  

If that is indeed the case then Paul Ryan needs to be well vetted on his true leadership capabilities and where he specifically stands on smaller government because frankly, for all of his yammering and staged personality, I find him sorely lacking in his performance claims. 

  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to cut taxes and spending and rein in the debt?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to limit the size and scope of the federal government and return authority to states and to the American people?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to get rid of Obamacare and promote health care solutions based on free enterprise, not government controls?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to protect America from foreign threats, secure the border, and develop a robust, principled foreign policy that puts America first?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to ensure that our judges and lawmakers uphold the Constitution of the United States, starting by halting executive overreach?

But first, let us flashback to November 17, 1998when Paul Ryan set foot on the political path to Speaker of the House…and beyond? Take your time and really listen to the whole question and answer segment, especially after the section on his family.

Note: And remember when Paul Ryan said“I want to say to the American people: We hear you. We will do right by you. And we will deliver.” (Begin at 4:19)  

In case you missed it, watch and listen to Thomas Massie: At least McConnell got health care bill to a vote.

And thanks to Thomas Massie, that is why I keep asking those original questions of Mr. Speaker and why you should ask him too, especially now it appears he is walking the walk on that path to a presidential run.

In fairness I must point out Jim Geraghty’s piece in National Review: A Busy House but specifically quote him in paragraph three : 

“In fact, the House keeps sending bills over to the Senate, month after month: 250 in all so far this year…. Quite of few of those bills are minor — …but a significant number would count as accomplishments worth boasting about on the campaign trail next year if they were signed into law.

Oh yeah, and #WeAreStillWaiting Mr. Speaker.

Senate Conservatives Fund Matters

Originally founded by the truly Consistent Conservative, Jim DeMint, the Senate Conservatives Fund (SFC) is a fantastic organization keeping laser-like focus on our elected officials in Washington DC. And better yet, they keep that focus on accountability.

It all begins with vetting a candidate. If a candidate is endorsed by SCF, then fails to keep his/her promises then that candidate can lose the endorsement for future elections. 

That is why I like to donate to candidates through SCF

The 2018 Election Cycle

U.S. SENATE & HOUSE

SCF does not endorse a candidate in every race. Instead, we focus our efforts on the best candidates nationwide. To win SCF’s endorsement, a candidate must be a true conservative, have strong grassroots support, and be able to execute a winning campaign.
