Paul Ryan is an honorable, respectable, beautiful congressman. He loves his job so much that he has declined to take a job as Speaker of the House. So what can we do?
Technically, Paul Ryan is currently rethinking whether or not he will accept the position. (I say accept because he has the votes, according to a USA Today article. Also, another candidate has said that if Ryan runs, he will drop out).
If Congressman Ryan decides to officially decline, even after further contemplation, then who could get the votes and lead? That answer is still up in the air, but some names have been tossed around. Darrell Issa and Jason Chaffetz both said that they might be inclined to running.
However, with Paul Ryan’s integrity and brilliance, I still believe that he is the best person for the job – and so do many others. We should know by the end of Congress’s extended weekend whether or not Ryan is running.
If he declines, I will continue to respect him. However, if he accepts, I think we could see a wonderful change in the future of Congress.
