Paul Ryan Just Made A HUGE Presidential Announcement! (BREAKING)

Paul

While Speaker of the House Paul Ryan continues to deny any interest in obtaining the Republican nomination in 2016, he did not rule out a White House bid come 2020.

As many of you remember, before Ryan became Speaker, he repeatedly rejected calls for him to take the job, before eventually accepting the role.

From Politico:

He may have emphatically ruled out a last-minute bid for the Republican nomination at a contested convention in 2016, but that does not mean that House Speaker Paul Ryan is not keeping his options open for a White House run in 2020 or beyond.

Asked in an interview with CNN late Tuesday whether his repeated comments that he would not seek or accept the GOP nomination this year would preclude him from ever running for the presidency, Ryan demurred.

“Well, no, but I don’t think that far down the road,” the Wisconsin Republican said. “I made a decision in this cycle for 2016 not to run for president.”

Ryan repeated a variation of his standard line that, “if you’re going to be the nominee, you should run for the job.”

“I don’t think it’s right to have someone parachute in who never ran for the job. And in my case, I specifically decided not to run for the job,” Ryan said, adding that in an open convention, only candidates who campaigned and received votes should be under consideration. “I don’t know how I can be any clearer than that.”

    Ryan has done anything to show that he’s working for us the people and so I couldn’t vote for him. He’s shown that he’s more of a liberal. I do agree with Ryan that only those that received votes should be considered and The one with the most votes should be the one for which is the candidate. They are destroying the republican party by making folks think that their votes don’t count.

    Paul RINO – ’nuff said…

  3. Stanley says:

    Ryan hasn’t done anything positive yet that would influence me to vote for him, in fact, quite the contrary.

  4. Marilyn says:

    I agree with what Ryan said. “Only candidates who campaigned and received votes should be under consideration.” But I would add to that, the candidate who received the largest portion of the popular vote should be the candidate. The GOP making people feel that their vote does not count is what has the voting public furious.
