    Idk man. I agree that they're liars but on this issue I think they were sincere.

    Good call. Cruz's turnaround is really embarrassing and so bad that I don't have any respect for him as a man.

    Yeah, the notion that after everything we now know, someone would still have voted for Trump is mindblowing. Dude is just saying that he doesn't give a shit about America or about basic decency.

    I don't like public infighting at all, but at least it's more respectable than having someone blatantly disrespect you and your response is to kiss up to them. Or worse, kiss up non-stop suppressing your feelings for years, only to "come out" for book sales. In all honesty I actually do believe Ryan had some of the potential he was hyped up on. He just made every decision imaginable to not reach it.

    I just have a hard time believing anyone could legitimately think this.

    Trump could care less that Russia interfered in our election and he is attempting to destroy our institutions by instructing his cronies to defy subpoenas. Trump has absolutely no regard for the constitution and praises dictators. He talks shit and undermines our national security professionals and FBI. He admitted to believing Putin over our intelligence agencies.

    Can someone explain how Hillary would be worse than that? Any patriotic Republicans want to explain this to me?

    For me it depends on what the public fighting is about. With Trump it was about high school level name calling, which is insane. I think healthy public debate is awesome and necessary.

    I agree with you on Ryan. I hate using internet slang but Ted got publicly cucked and now he's a Trump shill. It's really pathetic.

    He left because he didn't want to remain in Congress as a minority party. Also, he had a real shot of losing his reelection bid.

    Oh yea for sure, I should have been more specific. I mean the dirty type. For example, I didn't like AOC's implication that Pelosi is racist at all. I think that does much more harm than good. Rather, had she called her out stating she felt she was too passive or compromised too hard against party goals, I still may not agree but I respect the approach infinitely more.

    In this case it works though, because it puts two scumbags in a scummy light. Probably the ideal infighting, only second to the ones that bring about quality positional in-party discussion.

    Ryan is a spineless pos con man.
    Talked shit about Trump before he got elected and after he left office but cucked hard to him when they were both in DC.
    Got his tax cut for his elite owners and jumped ship almost immediately for $$$ and because he knew his days were numbered.
    The poster child for the GOP's total lack of integrity.

    Took advise from generals? Luje when they told him dont you dare pull all the troops from Iraq, which he completley ignored by the way and in turn created ISIS! Obama thinks he's the smartest man on gods green earth, that man listened to nobody!

    I love how Paul Ryan is now a unifying force for bipartisan contempt.

    From those generally left for his shitty policy stances and lack of spine.

    From Trumpsters, he went from praised and a great man to scum because he broke the golden rule of never being critical of Dear Leader.


    LOL, whatever it takes. Lets enjoy the mutual contempt.

    The big wig Republicans think Trump is a moron. You really think the likes of paul ryan and McConnell think Trump is some wiz kid at anything other than manipulating things to his personal advantage through any means necessary?

    Trump is amazing because he's literally willing to say anything, no matter how dumb or big of a lie, to get what he wants. The man has zero shame.

    Yeah.. That's why he won. He wasn't Paul Ryan or anybody that knew "how things were done in Washington."

    I would have voted for Hillary over Paul Ryan, like I voted for Obama over him.

    I have to wonder who the audience for this book even is. Trump supporters obviously won't be interested, and anybody who dislikes Trump because they've been paying a bit of attention is going to hold Ryan in equally low regard (just like this thread shows).

    I hope this book tanks and Trump roasts him on Twitter over it.
