Trey Gowdy Thinks THIS Republican Should Be The Next Speaker

No doubt, many of our readers here would love to see a guy like tough-talking conservative hero Trey Gowdy run for a House leadership role.

Gowdy, however, has no interest in the position, something we’ll explain later.

In the meantime, he has offered up his ideal choice for leading the House, a Republican name that may actually surprise some people – Paul Ryan.

Via The Blaze:

While U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has deflected requests to go for leadership in the House of Representatives, the chairman of the body’s Select Committee on Benghazi does have a person in mind to run things for Republicans.

“To me, just speaking as one member, the smartest kid in the class is Paul Ryan,” Gowdy told the Washington Post on Tuesday. “If I had one draft choice and I was starting a new country, I would draft Paul to run it. Not because I agree with him on everything, but because he’s super, super smart.”

“And when someone is super, super smart and is not interested, that tells you something,” Gowdy mused.

Of course, the same could be said about Gowdy himself.

The Representative from South Carolina has no interest though, sadly.  His reason for not wanting to lead the GOP in the House was quite amusing.

“I don’t have a background in mental health, so I wouldn’t have the right qualifications to lead right now.”

Comment:  Since both men have no interest, let’s just speculate – Who would be a better leader in the House, Paul Ryan or Trey Gowdy? Share your thoughts below.
