Former House Speaker Paul Ryan is trying to make a political comeback.
But it was not what anyone expected.
Paul Ryan left Kamala Harris grinning from ear to ear with what he just admitted.
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan helped the Democrats win the 2018 election by quitting on the GOP in the middle of the campaign.
Ryan announced it would be his last term in Congress before the election sending the signal to Republican voters that it wasn’t worth turning out because the cake was baked for a Democrat wave.
Now that Donald Trump has left office Ryan crawled back out of the shadows to deliver a speech at the Ronald Reagan library where Ryan will call on Republicans to ditch Donald Trump and return to the era of Mitt Romney “honorable losers” brand of politics.
That message thrilled Kamala Harris – the likely Democrat nominee in 2024.
Harris did not distinguish herself during her brief Presidential campaign.
The former California Senator did not develop a natural base, wow crowds with her charisma or persuade voters with the authenticity of her beliefs.
Harris’ best chance to win in 2024 is for Republicans to nominate a weak, uninspiring nominee.
And that is exactly what Paul Ryan called for.
“If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or on second-rate imitations, then we’re not going anywhere.” Ryan stated.
Ryan then stated that Republicans should put the GOP’s future in the hands of politicians that will emulate Mitt Romney and John McCain on policy and temperament.
“We win majorities by directing our loyalty and respect to voters, and by staying faithful to the conservative principles that unite us.” Ryan told the crowd. “This was true even when the person leading our movement was as impressive, polished, and agreeable as they come.”
Ryan ran on a ticket with Mitt Romney against Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
Many Republicans believed the election was winnable, but that Romney and Ryan blew it by running as moderate Republicans who thought it was more important to try and win the respect of the media by losing with honor than attacking Obama and Biden to win the election.
Ryan and Romney smiled and absorbed every smear about a war on money and carried on with a stiff upper lip when Joe Biden told black voters Mitt Romney wanted to reinstitute slavery and out them in chains.
The end result was nice guys finished last as Obama and Biden won the election.
Ryan also begged conservatives to waive the white flag of surrender in the culture war and accept the left’s continued efforts to redefine American society by mainstreaming biological males playing girls sports, drag queen story time events for children, Critical Race Theory and other components of the “woke” revolution.
“We conservatives have to be careful not to get caught up in every little cultural battle.” Ryan added. “Sometimes these skirmishes are just creations of outrage peddlers, detached from reality and not worth anybody’s time.”
“Culture matters, yes, but our party must be defined by more than a tussle over the latest grievance or perceived slight.” Ryan continued.
Instead, Ryan insisted Republicans should return to “policy” – which in terms of what Ryan supports means amnesty for illegal aliens, “free” trade deals that send jobs to countries like Mexico and China, and endless foreign wars in the Middle East.
“We must not let them take priority over solutions – grounded in principle – to improve people’s lives.” Ryan added.
Ryan had his chance to make this argument to the nation.
A ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan could not better represent the supposedly “policy focused” and “agreeable” front facing Republicans.
Romney and Ryan spent their entire 2012 campaign smiling politely as Obama and Biden bullied them and took their lunch money.
Many Republicans felt the only thing missing was Romney and Ryan walking around with kick me signs on their backs.
The vast majority of Republicans will ignore Paul Ryan because they know the only beneficiary of his advice is the 2024 Democrat nominee for President – likely to be Kamala Harris.
But because Ryan is a Republican that hates Donald Trump the corporate media will amplify Ryan’s message in hopes of stoking divisions within the Republican Party with the hopes of boosting the Democrats.
