It would seem that Rep. Paul Ryan hasn’t been reading the directives sent by Fox News don Roger Ailes. Although Ryan has continued to push hard for a complete repeal of Obamacare in recent weeks, even the Right’s central command is calling his effort a waste of time.

"Even though you might want it, the Supreme Court has spoken," said Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday. "That's never going to fly." Kilmeade’s sentiment that Paul should just move on was echoed by their well-known guest, Laura Ingraham.

“You’re exactly right,” responded Ingraham, who did give the Wisconsin representative a little leeway with regard to related strategies to destroy ObamaCare.

“The public is still against what Obamacare is doing to the health care system, and I think Paul Ryan sees that even in some Democrat states ... I think Ryan thinks he has some philosophical space to move in there.”

Not known to sugarcoat her opinions, Ingraham did, however, cheekily add that Ryan’s quixotic effort is a “very optimistic and generous way of looking at the monies that will be on the table and available to him.”
