Speaker Ryan Will Bring Leadership, Not Management

The House Freedom Caucus has found its speaker.

The House Freedom Caucus has found its speaker. The group of 40 lawmakers that drove the Department of Homeland Security to the edge of a shutdown in February over Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty and that was instrumental in the ouster of current Speaker John Boehner, announced that a “supermajority” of its members would support Rep. Paul Ryan for the speakership. Unlike Boehner, who squandered his role by trying to manage the herd of cats known as the House, Ryan plans to lead the chamber by bringing vision to the position. “Paul is a policy entrepreneur who has developed conservative reforms dealing with a wide variety of subjects, and he has promised to be an ideas-focused Speaker who will advance limited government principles and devolve power to the membership,” the Freedom Caucus said in a statement. Ryan said he would only run for the speakership if he got the backing from all the Republican groups in the House, ensuring that his leadership would bring a measure of unity. The Freedom Caucus torpedoed the speakership bid of House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, so its support is vital for the next speaker. If all goes well, Republicans will vote for the new speaker Oct. 29, Boehner will resign his position the next day, and the GOP will have its speaker who will lead them into a new presidential administration. So far, Ryan seems to have the votes.
