    Does Paul Ryan's vote for the fiscal cliff deal hurt his chances?

    Of all the possible 2016 Republican nominees yet considered, Ryan probably has the strongest governing credentials, namely real experience in an important legislative body. In comparison to other Congressmen like the himbo Rubio, he doesn't really have any competition on the experience front.

    He's also an ideologue. Until today, I'd have said he was the most by-the-book conservative the Republicans could nominate four years from now. However, with his recent minority vote for the fiscal cliff plan, I may have to revise my consideration of the man.

    They certainly SHOULD be damaged by this vote. This bill stunk to high heaven. Never should have been passed.

    I doubt it would hurt his theoretical chances any more than anything else. This is only round 1. The real fight comes in February and it will be bloody awful in comparison. I do not see Congress abdicating its authority to set the debt ceiling to the WH permanently or accepting any more tax increases.

    It's about time for some taxes to pay for our wars.

    Paul Ryan has no chances. Zero. Nada. Zilch. Bupkis. Never happen. No ****ing way. Pipe dream. Not a chance in hell.

    Give it up, Ryan. You are waaaaaaaaaay too far from middle ground. You represent the outer edge. The outer edge of either ruling party is decidedly not what America wants. We need less nutters and effing crazies and more mainstream Americans running for public office. Ryan is a lightening rod for desperate sheeple.

    Jesus Christ! Partisan sycophants and toadies (both parties) are already lining up for 2016. Hillary and Ryan! That is bull**** and stupid. It damned sure isn't thinking outside of the ****ed up 2 party box.

    In the past I might have actually looked past his last name and considered him as a potential candidate for POTUS. Now I wouldn't vote for him under ANY conditions. Not for POTUS or any other office.

    What's wrong with his last name, Tigger?

    LOL. Ryan's biggest problem is likely to be with the far-end CONSERVATIVES rather than the more moderates.
