A temporary ban is a common sense strategy, which is why Rep. Paul Ryan doesn’t get it.
Just in case people are following Barack Obama’s speech today and thought he attacked Donald Trump word for word you are sadly mistaken. Trump has given specifics on his ban.
Temporary ban all Muslims from countries with ties to exporting and involved in terror attacks and terrorist organizations. Once we “figure out what is going on, and have a plan to deal with it, as well as properly vet Muslims, we will lift the ban.” He stated it in his new conference. (not an exact quote, but pretty close). He did note, which as president he could do this without Congress, using his Executive Authority.
Works for me.
From Paul Ryan’s video below:
This was another act of war against America by radical Islam. The same time, let’s also be clear: members of the LGBT community were the targets. They were simply attacked for who they are. This is an ideology that rejects who we are as a country. Open, tolerant, free. It preys on the vulnerable and the insecure seeking to radicalize them into murderers. This is a threat that knows no borders. This is a threat that can not be contained. This is a threat that simply must be defeated.
I do not think a Muslim ban is in our country’s interest. I do not think it is reflective of our principles not just as a party but as a country and I think the smarter way to go in all respects is to have a security test and not a religious test.

Unbelievable! Another statement based on political correctness. Understands there is a threat but doesn’t want to do anything about it because it would hurt peoples feelings. What a waste of the office he holds.
Voters are uneasy with Ryan because they don’t know where in the hell his head is, but it’s not with the electorate this election cycle.
I don’t think he understands there is a threat. Or if he does, he believes it’s a threat with acceptable losses.
Someone somewhere needs to publicly acknowledge that emigration is a form of jihad. The people doing it are the ones who refer to it that way. It’s not racist to hear and comprehend threats openly communicated to you. Our policies are being exploited by those who seek to harm us. Our elected officials need to prioritize our security instead of bending themselves into pretzels trying not to offend.
What do you think is going on in Ryan’s head? Has he checked out of this election? How was he helping Donald Trump by saying things like this? Leave your comments below and let me know if you think Ryan is sabotaging the Republican chances of being Hillary Clinton.
