  • Reports: Ryan to Retire From Congress

How will a Democrat-controlled House react? "Stay tuned for more retirements as Republicans increasingly realize that their midterm prospects are doomed".

He believes we may see a shift in leadership with democratic gains in congressional party leadership, maybe enough for democrats to take over the House Majority in the next congress. While Republicans praised his leadership, many Democrats found fault with the impact of the tax bill he championed.

When House Speaker Paul Ryan announced his retirement decision, he did so on his own terms. Vice President Mike Pence is an obvious option, but he might be even more tainted by association with a disgraced ex-president and even weaker politically than Gerald Ford was in 1976.

"Paul Ryan's commitment to protecting the House majority is greater today than it was yesterday", said Bliss.

For many Republicans, Ryan has been "a steady force in contrast to the president's more mercurial tone", said Rep. Mark Sanford of SC. What better way to turn the page from a candidate who binge-watches Fox News than to choose one who reads budget documents for fun? "Across demographics and districts, Ryan's less popular than Trump, and it comes down to policy".

Property Speaker Paul Ryan claims he'll continue being the most effective Republican in the room until slumping in January, despite calls for a direction transition and also queries from inside his caucus regarding a dragged-out course of action harming the celebration at the November mid-terms. He's represented Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District since 1999. A self-styled budget guru, Ryan had made tax cuts a centrepiece of his legislative agenda, and a personal cause, and Congress delivered on that late past year. There will be no entitlement reform, because Trump-"the king of debt"-couldn't care less". Majority Whip Steve Scalise is viewed as the likely alternative, and his team noted Thursday that he, too, had broken first-quarter fundraising records, hauling in $3 million.

This narrative runs counter to the numerous departures of White House staff who are leaving to spend less time with Donald Trump's family. "Some say this President really doesn't want to expand the base", she said.

"Now, more than ever, we need to ensure our nation remains on the correct path".

I used to think that Ryan was smart, courageous and principled because he was willing to touch the "third rail" of American politics-entitlement reform. Once he descended the golden escalator, the Tea Party was no longer the voice of Republican outrage at the purportedly pusillanimous establishment - Trump was. "And I think the Speaker's decision is indicative of that". No one does. He missed his chance when he kowtowed to Trump.

As the GOP jockeys to find a suitable candidate for Ryan's seat, the party is confronted with a reckoning over how unelected fringe candidates can hijack the party and manage to dominate mainstream coverage. He might well have lost a speakership he never wanted anyway-but he would have kept his self-respect and possibly his future political viability.

But Trump still won, not just the nomination but the White House, with a campaign that cast immigrants as inherently devious snakes and encouraged public displays of anger at protesters and the press.
