Ryan's deferential relationship with Trump risky to America's political healthWisconsin Republicans' golden boy and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is once again under fire for his deference to Read...

"The Speaker has kept up his breakneck fundraising schedule, traveling to more than 30 states and over 70 cities to help raise money for House Republicans this cycle, while keeping his pledge to spend weekends at home in Wisconsin", Ryan's organization said when announcing the fundraising figures.

"Serving the people of Wisconsin has been a tremendous honor for Speaker Ryan and he has served them well". At the time when Republican Washington needed a path toward action on health care, another Paul proved to be a far from certain trumpet, with disastrous consequences for his party.

Ryan's relationship with the president has been fraught from the start.

After he became one of the most powerful people in the nation, however, Speaker Paul Ryan did nothing on immigration except to front for President [Donald] Trump's nativism.

In 2016, Trump slammed Ryan as a "very weak and ineffective leader". Last August he told a CNN forum that the president "messed up" his original response to the racist violence in Charlottesville. "I took it reluctantly", he said.

Ryan rode the tiger long enough to win a massive tax cut for corporations.

Ryan partially accomplished his mission a year ago with the passage of a draconian tax bill, pushed by GOP congressional leaders and the Trump administration, that largely benefits the nation's wealthiest people while heaping new suffering on low- and middle-income Americans.

The Republicans' biggest policy win since Trump took office nearly 15 months ago has been the tax overhaul approved in December, an achievement in which Ryan played a major role despite his sometimes strained relationship with the volatile president.

Those repeated defeats rankle the amnesty advocates who hoped Ryan would bring the GOP over to their side.

Actually, "very, very popular" is something of an exaggeration.

Democrats began to evoke Ryan in campaign spots, seeing him as an easier target than Trump in some districts.

And it could also trigger another wave of retirements among Republicans not eager to face angry voters in the fall and taking their cue from Ryan.

Ryan kept it classy, responding that diversity remains a priority for the party. But they are a distinct minority. First, it led Republican leaders to cut procedural corners, in a vain attempt to make up for lost time.

In a daring speech on the Senate floor last October, Republican Senator Jeff Flake warned that the coarseness of the Trump era was becoming the "new normal" - a flash of "destructive politics" that could set the conservative cause back a generation.

Trump offered well wishes on Twitter before a planned dinner with Republican congressional leaders at the White House on Wednesday evening. Rand Paul (R-KY) had more than a grain of truth in it. Paul had to search for the legislation because it didn't exist (or was being quickly re-written), and leadership feared the consequences if more initial rough drafts leaked. (The latter two will likely vie to replace Ryan as Speaker should Republicans keep their majority). According to a former aide to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, "It seems clear now that the fight is to hold the Senate".

State Reps. Tyler August and Samantha Kerkman are said to be mulling over a run, as is state Sen. But McConnell is even more unpopular than Ryan. He paid off at least a couple of old debts shortly after announcing his candidacy -one to a former girlfriend who had loaned him almost $2,000 almost two decades ago. "And we need more minorities, more women in our party, and I've been focusing on that kind of recruitment". Democrats will fault him for cooperating with the president on Obamacare repeal and tax-cutting, while Republicans will fault him for doing it with "resentment and sometimes outright hostility".
