Speaker Paul Ryan (RINO-OH), once a rising Republican star, now a conservative laughingstock.
Just like every other progressive liberal in America, Ryan, too, does not – I repeat – does not want to see President Trump’s border wall come to fruition.
I guess that means he’s probably cool with sanctuary cities and amnesty for illegals, as well.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, at a private dinner earlier this year, said he thought only “one member” wanted to build a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned from multiple sources with direct knowledge of the comments, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO).
Tancredo took issue with the Speaker’s characterization of support for the wall within the House GOP. “Of course he means only one person in his entourage and of the leadership,” he told Breitbart News. “I know several people in Congress who want a wall and I know that there are millions of Americans who want a wall.”
“You have to understand the level of fear that exists in the Republican establishment about this issue,” Tancredo told Breitbart News, seeking to explain the pressures that Republican members of Congress face when addressing immigration.
Which is more likely?
Only “one member” wants to see a wall built on our southern border with Mexico, or Ryan, McConnell and other Congressional Republicans are too weak to get the job done?
I’ll assume the latter until told otherwise.
When it comes down to it, America doesn’t need a “wall” per se. But dang it, we need far better barriers at many points of entry.
If you feel like sounding off on Ryan and the spineless GOP establishment, consider this an open thread…
***UPDATE 10:48AM EST***
Apparently, Ryan is speaking out of both sides of his mouth…
From Gateway Pundit:
Speaker Paul Ryan: This week the House is going to vote on all of the appropriation bills. This week the House is going to vote on all of the appropriation bills before the fiscal year deadline… It hasn’t been done in a long time. So the House of Representatives is doing its work. The House of Representatives is doing its job. And the House of Representatives is bringing all of these appropriation bills on budget, on time and that is an historic achievement… We are fully funding the president’s request to build a wall along the southern border.
Which is it, Paul? Fund the wall or not?
