Paul Ryan Doesn’t Want To Be President, But This Probably Won’t Be The Last Time in 2016 GOP Considers Him for The WH
by

This afternoon House Speaker Paul Ryan said he absolutely, positively does not want to run for President of the United States.

But six months ago Paul Ryan absolutely, positively did not want to become House Speaker.

Now I do believe there are a different set of circumstances at work. When it became clear that Kevin McCarthy was not up to the task of succeeding John Boehner, Ryan emerged as the only viable option and he was heavily pressured to run. Now that Ryan has been House Speaker for six months there is no groundswell among Republican voters that he run for President. At least right now.

Let’s suppose it’s a hot July in Cleveland and Republicans are on their 41st ballot between Cruz, Trump & Kasich. The GOP is at a stalemate. Then and only then could I see Republicans turn to someone like Ryan. Under those circumstances, Ryan would have to say yes not only for the good of the party, the good of conservatism & the good of the country, but so everyone can get the hell out of Cleveland.

While this is a remote possibility it is nevertheless a possibility. As such I have a funny feeling this won’t be the last time in 2016 that Paul Ryan will be viewed as a possible Republican candidate for the White House.
