Ryan's GOP swept away by a Trumpian revolution

Before Wednesday, it was widely assumed among some Ryan confidants that to preserve his standing and to raise lots of money for embattled House Republicans, he'd run for another term, then win and retire.

Now, some wonder if the GOP grip on the majority is already lost. I gotta tell you, Gayle, I've had so many people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s tell me, 'I wish I spent more time with my kids.' Well, my kids have only known me their entire lives as a weekend dad.

But I fear something else may be going on.

His announced departure after just 30 months as the most powerful Republican in Congress suggests that what once belonged to establishment Republicans - those buoyed by the conservative revolution of Ronald Reagan - is now up for grabs. Ryan took that job after that. So when I look at that picture, I have to say I don't feel very celebratory. And 38 House Republicans aren't searching for 2018 Reelection. In Gallup's April 2017 poll, 14% of Democrats said they had favorable views of Ryan, down from 39% the previous November.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said last week he would bring up the bill in the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs.

"He'll come in, and what I appreciate about him is that he actually walks in and orders like a regular customer", Halabi said. Now, all three of his children are teenagers. His own father died suddenly of a heart attack when he was 16, and though Ryan is in good health, the distance from his family weighed on him.

"I think everybody will start jockeying for position immediately", said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative Freedom Caucus.

It's unlikely that the two sides will compromise on much legislation in an election year.

"Despite our differences, I commend his steadfast commitment to our country", she said in a statement. Yet with 9 in 10 Democratic voters disapproving Trump's performance as special counsel Robert Mueller 's investigation closes in, leaders of a Democratic House could not prevent a 2019 impeachment drive even if they considered it counterproductive. Republicans acknowledged Wednesday morning that Ryan's seat will be far more vulnerable without the speaker on the ballot. But he said he is proud both measures passed the House of Representatives.

"The baby boomers retiring are what are going to do that", he said.

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'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...

Brendan Buck, counselor to the speaker, says the "the speaker is proud of all that has been accomplished". Since its installation in 2010, Ryan and other Republicans have lamented the economic disaster Obamacare allegedly poses to Americans, as well as reiterating time and again their desired healthcare system of privatized and expensive care is more practical and beneficial for the public.

In the wake of Ryan's retirement from the Republican party at perhaps its most vulnerable state in years, party leaders and conservatives nationwide should be tremendously concerned about the future of their party. We made our decision a different way this year.

"Paul Ryan chose to quit today rather than face Randy Bryce and the voters".

Two people with knowledge of Ryan's thinking said he has decided against seeking another term, but they did not say why.

Ryan, a Republican from Janesville, Wisconsin, was first elected to Congress in 1998 and became speaker in 2015 after former House Speaker John Boehner retired.
