Breitbart -- In an interview that aired on CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday, newly elected Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he hopes to lead a House of Representatives that is “functioning again.”
“I think wiping the slate clean was about wiping the slate clean in Congress and getting Congress, the House functioning again,” Ryan said.
However, part of that Ryan said will require finding “common ground” with the Obama White House.
“Look, if we can find common ground, we can on highways, we will on funding the government, hopefully we can on tax policy,” Ryan said. “Those are three things that will produce certainty in this economy in the next few months. Let’s go do that.”
Ryan also vowed that there would be no mass deportation of illegal immigrants while he was serving as House Speaker.
Blog Author's Comments -- Ryan actually expects to find 'common ground' with Obama and his administration? Is Paul Ryan another John Boehner? I was against Ryan as Speaker of the House when he was first being considered for the position. Obama is not interested in getting along or finding common ground. I don't think Ryan believes that we are at war with the Democrats. Obama is transforming the country into what he wants it to be and is not being stopped.
Another statement in the column that I can't agree with is 'Ryan also vowed that there would be no mass deportation of illegal immigrants while he was serving as House Speaker.' He can say that after what just happened in France? I am convinced something on the same scale or much larger will happen in the United States as more illegals are allowed into our country. Our only hope is to win the presidency in 2016 with a strong person and I can only think of two who fit that description that are running for the nomination.
