House Speaker Ryan owed a debt of gratitude

House Speaker Paul Ryan addressing representatives

Ryan says he's run in his last election and is exhausted of the regular commute from Washington to Janesville, Wis. because he wants to be more than a weekend Dad to his three children - Samuel, Elizabeth and Charles - and weekend husband to Janna.

Ryan, the House speaker, appeared on CBS This Morning on Thursday to discuss his recently-announced retirement plans with host Gayle King. His decision fueled fresh doubts about the party's ability to fend off a Democratic wave, fed by opposition to Trump, in November.

Thirty-eight Republicans are leaving the House by choice after this November's election. "So I will be setting new priorities in my life", he said. In addition to Ryan, another lawmaker, from Florida, announced his resignation Wednesday.

That deal also significantly raised USA military spending this year as demanded by Republicans. "Paul Ryan is the single least popular political leader in the country", said Jeb Fain, a spokesman for the Democrat-supporting House Majority PAC, before Ryan announced his retirement. His approval numbers have taken a hit, and there are plenty of political observers who think Ryan is not doing enough to check the Trump presidency. For example: Trump appreciates when Ryan criticizes him privately, instead of publicly.

As I noted in my blueprint for such a movement, running on a new platform divorced from leadership will be even more powerful than what Newt Gingrich did because it will be orchestrated by Republicans who are officially in power but are really a minority of the majority. He noted that his oldest just turned 16, which was how old Ryan was when his father died. A final decision was made over the two-week congressional recess, which was partly spent on a family vacation in the Czech Republic.

"Paul Ryan is an institution here in Janesville and also in the 1st Congressional District".

Ryan, who has had a hard relationship with Trump, thanked the president for giving him the chance to move the GOP ahead. He has had more trust with the hardliners in the House.


"We're going to have a great record to run on", Ryan told reporters Wednesday. "His ability to bridge the vast divide". Both men spoke at the private meeting Wednesday, delivering tributes to Ryan. A selfless public servant, Speaker Ryan has guided the House of Representatives to substantial conservative accomplishments, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which is helping hardworking Montanans.

"Leadership has never been on my bucket list, and it's not on my bucket list today", he said.

"If Trump faces a Congress under Democratic control as well as fewer Republicans willing or able to defend him, those conditions create increased opportunity for impeachment", Miller said in a Wednesday note.

But he'll leave with several dozen other House Republicans, many of whom have said they're bone exhausted of today's political climate. "This is going to make every Republican donor believe the House can't be held". Trump could be heterodox in a thousand different ways, but he connected with the hearts of voters who wanted a Republican who would break with the legacies of the Bushes and Clintons, not merely administer the welfare-warfare state in a more business-friendly manner. Another Republican mentioned as a potential candidate is longtime Ryan family friend and backer Bryan Steil, an attorney and member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents. Some sources claim President Trump is likely to favor McCarthy, though the president also likes Scalise.

Bryce's campaign says it raised $2.1 million at the end of the last fundraising quarter.

"He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January".
