Totally lame GOP adults are crushing Paul Ryan’s spirit
Failed Mitt Romney wingman Paul Ryan, who recently tried to recycle a term paper which had received a failing grade back in November, is very very angry with the Senate upperclassmen because they are just ruining his creative destruction party for the poors in exchange for not letting America go Full Metal Deadbeat:
House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan lashed out at Senate Republicans for interfering with the House GOP’s talks with the White House to reopen the government and lift the debt ceiling, suggesting his colleagues on the other side of the Capitol were betraying Speaker John Boehner.
“They’re trying to cut the House out, and trying to jam us with the Senate. We’re not going to roll over and take that,” Ryan told reporters. When asked if he felt “double crossed,” Ryan said “you look at the facts and draw your own conclusions.”
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Ryan said House Republicans only learned the details about the plan this morning, and added that he strenuously objects to it. When asked which parts of the plan he has a problem with, Ryan said there are “too many to go into.”
House-Senate relations are often tense, but Boehner and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell are often said to have a very close working relationship. In several other showdowns with Obama, McConnell and Senate Republicans have embraced legislation opposed by most House Republicans.
It’s almost as if the members of the Senate don’t have any respect for the House members who have been so wildly ineffective at getting anything done over the past few weeks outside of making the Republican party less popular than stepping barefooted in dog shit. And have Senate Republicans already forgotten that Paul Ryan is the “rock star” who is supposed to lead them out of the wilderness?
Representative Paul D. Ryan may have temporarily receded into the Capitol shadows after his stinging vice-presidential defeat in November, but he remains a powerful presence among House Republicans, earning the respect of hard-line conservatives for his budget blueprint and the trust of anxious moderates for his pragmatism.
Now, the impasse that has shuttered much of the government and steered the nation toward a default has offered the Wisconsin congressman a new opening to reassert himself — and suddenly a man who seemed in danger of being eclipsed as the face of his party has re-emerged as essential to its rescue.
That was, like, two days ago. Are they no longer turning their lonely eyes to him?
It would seem they are not.
But Paul Ryan gets last tag:
When I asked Ryan whether he had communicated his views directly to Senate Republicans, he said “yes, I have.”
Followed by the sound of a slamming bedroom door, screams of “I hate you! I hate you! I wish I’d never been born!” and then loud annoying music.
Probably Fall Out Boy.
