Speaker Ryan departure sparks unrest, GOP fears losing House

  • Residents of Janesville Wis Speaker Paul Ryan's hometown speak out about his decision not to seek re-election

Meanwhile, some commentators have said that Ryan's decision to step down stemmed out of his desire to flee a sinking ship.

- He really does want to spend more time with his children, fearing his kids will remember him only as a "weekend" dad if he doesn't get out now.

Halabi's restaurant is located just in front of Craig High School and students have flocked to his restaurant for years. He said his reasoning is entirely personal.

Ryan grew up in Janesville and graduated from Craig High School in 1988.

He added, "I'm not going anywhere any time soon".

GREENE: You know, we've been talking a lot yesterday about the president's tweets about Syria and Russian Federation, taunting Russia about what Russian Federation might do if the USA ends up carrying out a military attack this morning. "In the meantime, our focus should be on demonstrating why we will do more for families than the GOP and expose the reckless waste and abuse of government resources in this administration", former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN.

"I'm confident we can keep this majority", he said.

His reasons for leaving could be accepted at face value, while noting that many political experts believes that the actual reason he is leaving is because Democrats are expected to dominate congressional midterm elections in November. There's also an autographed plaque hanging up with a picture on it of Ryan and Halabi shaking hands. We have been functioning under one in Afghanistan for 17 years. Paul is a big supporter of our local community here.

O'Reilly & Conway's Irish Pub is another favorite hangout.

Those seeking the cuts would need the support of Republican House leaders, such as Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise, both seen as potential rivals to replace Ryan as the No. 1 House Republican and - if the party retains its majority in November elections - as speaker. Mr. Ryan's legacy will be debated for some time; history will be the ultimate judge, but until that time, people like you and I can chime in.

"I don't see getting things done for the country - keeping your promises, making a difference - a devil's bargain", Ryan said. The Wisconsin lawmaker's nice-guy image never seemed like a good fit for the president's abrasive style.

It's still too early to say just what the impact of the legislation will be.

That theme- that Ryan is as much a regular guy as he is an accomplished politician- is echoed by many.

Ryan and enough rank-and-file Republicans could link arms with Democrats to defend the spending deal enacted into law on March 23 and prevent a resumption of hostilities over the budget. We're all big fans of his policies here.

She also reminded the current Republican leader in the House that he had once promised to do more to make the GOP more inclusive.
