Ryan reiterates call for Roy Moore to drop out

Source: The Hill




BY SCOTT WONG - 12/07/17 12:16 PM EST

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday reiterated his call for Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore to drop out of the race over allegations of sexual misconduct, including assault.

“I think he should have dropped out,” Ryan told reporters at his weekly news conference. “Just because the polling has changed doesn’t change my opinion on that, so I stand by what I said before.”

Ryan had made similar comments last month after Moore faced a flurry of allegations that he had aggressively pursued, and in at least one case sexually assaulted, teenage girls when Moore was in his 30s.

A controversial former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice, Moore will square off with Democrat Doug Jones in a Tuesday special election to finish the remainder of Republican Jeff Sessions's term, who resigned earlier this year to become President Trump’s attorney general.

6. I imagine it is more strategic than ethical.

He gets to grandstand knowing that Moore will pay no attention. It is intended to
keep his choirboy imagine intact.

11. This move by Ryan

will get Moore more votes, a vote against the establishment.

2. I think The Hill has a misleading headline.

Ryan is speaking in passive tense here - he’s not calling for Moore to drop out. Should’ve, would’ve, could’ve.... The Hill is giving Ryan too much credit. Paul Ryan is happy to simply be a sheep.

5. Ryan has nothing to do with the Senate

so what he thinks or says is irrelevant unless it has to do with FARENTHOLD, who is in the House and needs to resign.

8. Well, tell that to the non-Minnesotans that calling for Franken's head.

Their opinions should not be relevant, but hell are they vocal...

I expect that you are right though, Ryan is speaking up on Moore to avoid talking about Farthold.

14. Ryan is putting together a plan to kill granny

to pay for the tax cuts for his puppet masters the Kochs.

If anyone, Turtle needs to be out there insisting that Moore-on won't be seated if he wins.

15. Turtle turned turned turtle and is now backing Moore.

While denying that he flip flopped.

Yes, Ryan is planning on killing the benefits that he gladly took when his father died. He is trying to complete the GOP theft of Social Security and Mediacare that Reagan started. St. Ronnie gave us IOUs for the funds, now Ryan wants to renege on his hero's promises.

18. Yeah, that is only what a democratic process is about after all.

Bad enough that the GOP gerrymanders districts and does active voter suppression.

I just had my votes stolen by a handful of anonymous accusers and the help of trolls and morons that can't vote in Minnesota.

10. Dog & pony show. The Repub Party is 100% behind Moore. Ryan is doing what will look good...

on his resume as a candidate for President. Ryan has no say-so in the matter, since Moore is running for the Senate, not the House.

Just a dog & pony show.

Razzle Dazzle 'em...and they'll never catch wise.

20. Roy Moore will win

And then probably drop out and get replaced by a Republican by the Gov, just like Al Franken (except he'll get replaced with a Democrat).

21. This asshole said the same thing about the malignant narcissistic psychopath in the White House

when the access Hollywood tape came out, then he came out to endorse him----------------FUCK YOU, you have NO FUCKING PRINCIPLES asshole, none. Your a fucking walking talking death panel, it's that simple.

He really is fucking full of himself and shit, this is the same asshole, that wants to gut /cut social security, Medicare and Medicaid, and lets not forget, CHiPS is going to be gutted because this asshole will not present one bill to fund the program--------------so FUCK YOU Paul "Eddie Munster" Ryan, they are children.


And since your fucking party started to gain control of the peoples government, your fucking CSR' are bankrupting the government on the bond markets, when "DEMOCRATS" were in power the annual budgets were voted on to go two years and beyond, with you running the program-----------------everyone lives in a state of fear-----------------you really are a piece of shit
