If the mid-term election does not swing in favor of the Republicans, they might have to surrender the seat of Speaker of the House to a Democrat, which would have been another humiliating situation for Ryan. I don't agree with his political views, but I do believe that he really believes in them.
The speaker had been heading toward this decision since late past year, said a person familiar with his thinking, but as recently as February he had considered running for another term.
For his part, Ryan maintained Wednesday that his departure would have no impact on the 2018 landscape. And while it didn't cost him the speakership in 2017, it should have. On one level, the delay made some sense.
And besides, the strategist said, the GOP message heading to November is the same. Those failures ultimately lie at Ryan's feet. Some will argue the attacks on the president are all unjustified. OK. After all, "repeal-and-replace" didn't become the preferred option until the month of Trump's inauguration. He later added: "That's something I'm going to keep working on". The March 2017 copier-based expedition by Sen. A few days later, a Trump tweet blamed "Mitch M & Paul R" for the debt ceiling "mess" when they failed to heed his advice on legislative strategy.

Second, once they did draft a bill, time pressures contributed to Ryan's initial take-it-or-leave-it strategy with his own conference. Rep. Steve Scalise and Rep. Kevin McCarthy were duking it out for the spot, but Scalise has withdrawn, so now the spot is McCarthy's to lose (which he did once before). He especially was bothered by the president's race-baiting and misogyny, but lacked the political will to make more than token objections.
That negotiating strategy of "ram and jam" virtually guaranteed the House would develop a serious case of indigestion from the legislation-which it did-thereby prolonging the debate further. The filing deadline's coming up.
Ryan fell in line like a good Republican after his party threw away the best chance it is ever likely to get to nominate a like-minded president and still win an election. Immediately after the election, I considered stalemate the likeliest option, and so it proved.
But some rank-and-file House members appear concerned.
The House has passed countless bills, including regular order in the budgeting process, that all have gone to die on the desk of leader McConell.
My choice would be Jim Jordan. He will not be remembered as a visionary or a great legislator, but as a weak representative that compromised what little integrity he had to appease Donald Trump and an authoritarian administration.
The relevant committee chairs and elected leaders share responsibility for these twin debacles. "Some friends indicate that Ryan may be suffering from a bout of 'Trump-haustion, ' but others believe there is serious contemplation of leaving Congress in 2018".
Ryan is explaining his decision to not seek re-election as one that was the best for his family. Judge Michael Screnock, who was backed by the Republican Party, won the district by 6 points, while loosing by 12 points statewide to the more liberal Judge Rebecca Dallet.
Republicans are certain to exploit some baggage that Bryce carries.
