Title: Paul Ryan is third casualty of GOP dysfunction in 20 years. Is major change afoot?

Paul Ryan is the third GOP speaker casualty in 20 years. The historic level of departures and dysfunction suggests we may be on the cusp of major political change.

For the first 200 years of this nation’s history, only three House speakers resigned from office, all because they were accepting other political appointments. But in just the past 20 years, an equal number of House speakers, all of them Republicans, have decided to depart under very different circumstances.

Rep. Paul Ryan is voluntarily surrendering a job considered so important it is second only to the vice president in the line of succession to the presidency. That reflects some terrible truths about the state of American politics: House Republicans have become completely unmanageable, making it almost impossible for the GOP to govern. And Congress is more polarized and dysfunctional than it has been since the years before the Civil War.

Much of the coverage about Ryan’s decision focuses on the likelihood that Democrats will win a majority of seats and gain control of the House in November. Ryan is certainly the highest profile Republican not to seek re- election. But he joins a list of 30 others who are leaving at the end of this session or who have already done so, plus 13 Republicans who are leaving the House to run for the Senate or a governorship.

Don't you mean bend- OVER?? (ok, that was lame...)

But after all, THAT is liberal-Left politics at its very foundation, isn't it?

Even the ultra-conservative House Speaker has had enough of the shitnado that is the "it's all about me!" administration....

HUH?? You really haven't clue, do you? Paul Ryan, "ultra-conservative"?? Bwaahaaa!!

The truth is, Paul Ryan is ducking out likely because he's about to be exposed for his back-stabbing treachery and collusion with Democrats.

I don't even want to imagine life through your bizarro-world lens. You obviously don't have any sane clue of reality by the way you process the Trump Admin accomplishments.

Where do you formulate such characterizations? "Shitnado" and "'it's all about me!' administration" -- how did you get there? Seriously. Can you tell us which political site you frequent? Or which Tee-Bee shows and hosts you bond with politically? It's as though you visit another planet and return to LF to share what appears to us as pre-packaged, pre-fed Goebbelian Alpo.

Despite all the non-stop smears, lies and sabotage endured by Trump from 95% of the MSM and half his own Party (R), lead by "ultra-conservatives"(?!?) Paul Ryan and McConnell (who actively collude with Democrats), the man and his staffs are doing MORE for MORE Americans across ALL demographics lines than any American President since Reagan. NOTE: Trump, a billionaire didn't need to be President. He did so to help restore America as a great nation in every way.

Conversely, 0bama HATED the USA. He is a Communist and racist. He governed like a tin-horn third world petty dictator, undermining the American Middle Class standard of living while making himself and his hubby Multi-Millionaires. Does that bother you? Do you even question his motives or policies?

Oh...and by defining the Presidency as a "shitnado"...and "'it's all about me!" administration', you obviously live by the mantra or cutsy word -- all hallmarks of liberals with superiority complexes which are as delusional as their claim for supposed "tolerance". "Hypocrisy", thy name is Liberal-Democrat.

Pretty funny huh?

I write most of my own material, which explains the occasional spelling error.

Can you tell us which political site you frequent?

I don't frequent any particular sites. I have the Google news page which provides a pretty diverse number of sources. I only block a few with annoying pay walls...

If I find something particularly interesting I'll look for the source.

which Tee-Bee shows and hosts you bond with politically?

I don't watch the national news or any of the "all opinion all the time" talking head shows. I will surf my local news options in the AM for traffic and weather though.

Nothing "pre-packaged" - unlike many of the posters who type (poorly) the "almost remembered correctly" paraphrased talking points from one of the shills on the radio...

I formulate my own opinions, which are subject to change at any time.

No Ryan is the reason for the dysfunction. Big government Regressives are the issue with America and why we have such a screwed out world.

The government will be and his family will be. Now hopefully we can get a butt kicker into the leadership role of the house that will fight for America(which is really a more conservative/Libertarian view) not some big government lackey.

Ryan maybe a nice guy but nice is not what we need to destroy the Democrat party and move the country back right of center.

If the voters are paying attention the GOP will gain seats if the voters are not then Trump will have to stand up to the everyone in government for the betterment of the good people.

You may not like his style and too bad because that's the kinda person we need to bitch slap the Regressives harming America! If he fails then America is gone and I will put out my pirates flag and say fuck you America!

From those G00gles sources, you must have absorbed quite a bit of propaganda and disinfo to come to your horrendously erroneous conclusions of "truth".

To witness that degree of auto cyber-lobotomy taking place without patient knowledge just from G00gle "news" is...sad.

Doubtful.

As I said, I check the sources of the facts I find interesting, and I check the credentials of those who write opinion pieces.

Perhaps you should pull up the Google News page and check out the sources for yourself, - they do a pretty good job of including most of the major news sources....CNN, NY TImes, WAPO, Washington Times, ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, USA Today.... or don't, I couldn't care less.

I'll trust the sources cited by most of these before I'll fall for the clickbait propaganda of "sources" like fromthetrenchesreport, gellerreport, zerohedge, bearingarms, or foxnews.

("you must have absorbed quite a bit of propaganda and disinfo")

Doubtful.

Whereby you believe the notion is "doubtful," you should be given credit for at least conceding the possibility that the info you've accepted from your G00gle-related sources may not be THE truth.

As I said, I check the sources of the facts I find interesting, and I check the credentials of those who write opinion pieces.

But again -- you run into one fox checking the "creds" of another fox who is inspecting the hen house.

Liberal-Left sources are NOT especially known for their impartiality of reporting nor of "facts". They are mostly agenda-driven. Surely even you realize that.

Perhaps you should pull up the Google News page and check out the sources for yourself, - they do a pretty good job of including most of the major news sources....CNN, NY TImes, WAPO, Washington Times, ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, USA Today.... or don't, I couldn't care less.

"Good job" as defined by WHOM? By what criteria? If it's about disseminating "news" from a Dem-Left paradigm, then I'd agree with you. (EDIT: Washington Times reports as a legit, unbiased News source).

I have indeed checked out G00gle news splashes. The theme is consistently anti-Trump, anti-conservative; Same as the Yahoo "news" splash as well as AOL's when signing out of their email.

I'll trust the sources cited by most of these before I'll fall for the clickbait propaganda of "sources" like fromthetrenchesreport, gellerreport, zerohedge, bearingarms, or foxnews.

The only two sources I recognize are, "Zero Hedge" and Fox News".

Zero Hedge is trusted because they will report factually as well as report what those you mentioned WILL NOT. Actual "news" isn't necessarily political. But your sources even politicize the weather.

FNC is actually NOT a "conservative" news source. You're making the same mistake that most Progressives make in that you confuse OPINION personalities and opinion shows with "NEWS".

The problem with the "news" sources you respect and swear by editorialize "news" instead of reporting JUST the facts. The editorializing and politicizing of "News" with a decidedly liberal-left slant is a fairly recent practice of news dissemination. This is why at least half of all Americans scoff at and distrust CNN, NY TImes, WAPO, ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, USA Today etal.

EVERY SINGLE ONE of those "news" sources are notoriously liberal-left ideologues. Many of them are and were infested with with Progs, tied directly to both the Clintons AND 0bamas. The Left has managed to finagle a monopoly on "news" reporting, often (if not always) reporting on issues word-for-word, VERBATIM.

President 0bama had met with Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg on several occasions to presumably discuss political strategies, harvesting conservative "enemies," and ways to monitor, censor and or expose conservative private conversations. In other words, social media giant Facebook was colluding with a US President to spy on US citizens and political "enemies". This was also the case in several liberal-left media outlets during the 0bama presidency.

Do you also find nothing alarmingly wrong with this?

It appears you find nothing dishonorable or unethical about politicizing "News Reporting" for agenda's sake. Given that the apparent case, you'd also find nothing fundamentally wrong with Barry 0bama or Hillary Klinton running major news outlets either.

You're correct in that noting the Washington TIMES has NOT been a disseminater of Fake News.

Maybe from your perspective,

Do you see any anti-right wing bias there?

False
