Paul Ryan Is Not Running for President _ or Passing a Budget
More than this, what we have here, is another example of a failed policy coming from the teaparty side of the aisle. When political principle becomes an intractable process, it is the "party politic" that needs attention (read "correction"). The problem with the far far Right is exemplified in this news story. Last year, Ryan allowed for the passage of a large spending bill and the far far Right used that circumstance to tarnish Ryan's reputation as it (the far far Right) exercised its ability to enforce its uncompromising agenda. In the end, the GOP and its teaparty constituency missed another opportunity to lead the nation, choosing, rather, to demonize its own leadership for the sake of doing . . . . . . . . . . . . ah . . . . . . . . . .. nothing. Look, when the car has run out of gas, you don't remain in the car and complain that "this should not have happened."
