Tired of elected officials playing party politics during a national crisis? Tired of politicians creating a crisis where there is none just to play politics? Tired of party politics altogether?
Well then. You might not want to read what Rep. Paul Ryan had to say on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. Apparently, he would rather let the country slip into total chaos so long as his precious conservative party remains comfortably intact.
SCHIEFFER: Let me ask you about a couple of things in your book. I want to read a quote that has picked up a lot of attention. It takes us back to last October, when the Republicans shut down the government in an attempt to defund Obamacare. You didn’t say much at the time about the Ted Cruz strategy, that is, rallying key party conservatives on the House side to let the government shut down, but here is what you wrote in your book.
“In short, the strategy our colleagues have been promoting was flawed from beginning to end. It was a suicide mission, but a lot of members were more afraid of what would happen if they didn’t jump off the cliff.” I guess I would ask you first, why didn’t you say that back then?
RYAN: Because I want party unity. More>>>PoliticusUSA
Bingo! I call Bingo! Bingo! Bingo!
Seriously. Ryan said he failed to rebuke ...what he saw back then as a suicide mission of his party's own making because. he wants. party. unity. Does that make sense to you? Not me.
He is not fit to be our congressman, yet he wants to be president.
God help us.
