    Donald Trump returned fire to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) Thursday afternoon, responding to the Wisconsin Republican announcement that he was not yet ready to back the billionaire’s candidacy.

    “I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda,” Trump said in a statement. “Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people.”


    “They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!” the real estate mogul added.

    Just who does he think his other option is, and if he went Demoncrat they need to get him out of there like yesterday. Someone in his position doesn't have the right to try and sabotage the clear choice of the people of his party who is Trump.

    Not only doe he have the right, he has the responsibility of doing that which he believes is in the best interest of the country. If that is opposing a person in his own party who he believes will be a disaster for both the country and his political party, then it is imperative that he take a stance against that person.

    The political play we are seeing now concerns the question, who will be the vice presidental nominee?

    The party people want it to be one of their men and are withholding their support until he ponys up.

    It is a real battle for Trump IMO.
    A strong vice president might mean a weak president; if the Dems and the Repubs dislike Trump he runs a real risk of impeachment

    ... something Obama should have faced, given his abuse of his oath to uphold the constitution and laws .. but didn't due to his unswerving support by the Dems.

    Trump will not have the support of party Repubs or Dems. during his term in office.

    Just like R.R. --he will make full use of the bully pulpit. He'll hold the feet of Democrats and Republicans to the fire by putting his case before the public in a most convincing way.

    The GOP primary system needs to be fixed so that a minority candidate with 40% of the vote cannot win a majority of the votes. The party bosses wanted winner-take-all in order to hold down costs and end the primaries quickly. They never considered that they could get a nominee who did not have a majority. The Reagan polices of a strong defense, a small government, and a conservative traditional approach to moral questions--those values of Reaganism are dead in the GOP. The Super-wealthy Trump is a big government guy who thinks that Bruce Jenner should use any washroom he wants no matter what, just like Bruce did at the Trump Tower in NYC. Super-wealthy Trump is to the left of Hillary on some issues such as socialized medicine and federalization of education, for example--not to mention the abolition of NATO.

    I do not like Trump but I dislike guys like Ryan even more. Here is a clear example why.

    Trump certainly does NOT believe in feeralization of education. He has repeatedly said he wants to abolish Common Core and that education should be handled at the local level.

    As far as NATO goes, he doesn't want to get rid of it --but to alter it because it is outdated from how it was originally conceived.

    Trump listed education as one of the primary responsibilities of the federal government. Trump may well be much worse than Hillary because he is so ignorant.

    "He also inherits something very special, that's very special to a lot of us. This is the party of Lincoln and Reagan and Jack Kemp.” Ryan said

    Jack Kemp??? I know who he was but why did Paul Ryan throw him in there?

    then:

    “Paul Ryan said that I inherited something very special, the Republican Party,” Trump tweeted. “Wrong, I didn't inherit it, I won it with millions of voters!”

    Okay, this is sort of funny, but it's time for both of them to turn the focus onto Hillary. I'm not so sure Paul Ryan would agree with me on that.

    With that rule, who would be the nominee this year?

    Rules are not going to fix this.

    If the GOP would adopt a clear, conservative platform like that of the Constitution Party, you would have had no Trump.

    Ryan is acting like a petulant child.

    This lack of support comes from the same Ryan who was part of the one of the worst campaign runs for president in history. He got trounced by a president everyone knows is a lying incompetent narcissistic moron.

    Then he becomes Speaker of the House. Not sure how that happened, but his main claim to fame is passing a budget that funded every illegal act that Obama wanted funded He didn't fight over anything. He's a weak kneed pseudo conservative who should resign in disgrace.

    Here's hoping he's the next Eric Cantor.

    I bet some of you would rag on George Washington himself if he were resurrected from the grave and refused to get on the Trump Train.

    Former U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin vowed on Sunday to help unseat Paul Ryan, the top Republican in the House of Representatives, because of the his refusal to endorse presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

    Palin said she believed Ryan would get “Cantored,” comparing him to former Eric Cantor, the former No. 2 Republican in the House who was defeated in a 2014 primary by conservative Dave Brat, now a Virginia congressman.

    Sarah Palin has become her own caricature.
