    They're waxing nostalgic (or Politico is) for the days when Republicans were easily pushed-around. And when 'compromise' meant agreeing to whatever the Dems wanted.

    As for Ryan... go away. And stay gone-away.

    Ryan clearly has no clue why he and Mittens lost. Romney had zero populist appeal (And still has none, except in Utah for reasons of the culture there), he was just the unfortunate result of a primary where the Libertarian and Populist Conservatives stayed home in droves for lack of anyone better staying in the race. And neither of them understood that Ryan didn't either, in fact his hardcore fiscal Conservatism was even less appealing than Romney's Detached Rich White Mormon Aristocrat Guy persona. He was a stupid choice for VP, adding nothing to the ticket but rather opening up huge avenues of attack as distant, unrelatable guys with more concern for money than people or their rights.

    If House Dems go full crazy, as seems very possible and Trump wins with coat tails - also very possible - I'm not sure Ryan should be ordering a new gavel.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    Wasn't aware of that, thanks. I guess that explains his choice to go Full Flake.

    "Go" full crazy? The Democrats already are, even before the riff raff like Alexandra Ocasia Cortez arrive.

    Hopefully Ryan doesn't depart the House and head into Kasich/Joe Scarborough types.
