On the failed leadership of Paul Ryan, a comment by Political Observer

There are no surprises here! The Republican Nihilists, named ‘The Freedom Coalition’, as unintentional homage to double speak? will, in an election year, prove by their political actions that they are simply the shock troops for Mr. Trump as American Caudillo: a strong man, who will enter the political fray and knock heads together to achieve an ersatz political accord, by force of will.
Mrs. Clinton, the fated nominee of the New Democrats, will simply have too relentlessly remind her audiences of a demonstrated Republican malfeasance i.e. of a Party which places political purity, in the guise of fiscal responsibility, above the safety and welfare of the nation.
One marvels that Rep Paul Ryan, the wunderkind of remorseless political ambition and failed leadership, has lost credibility with his House members. There can be no compromise with political zealots. Rep. Ryan thought he could tame the Jacobins, so much for the the notion of a clear eyed ‘political pragmatism’, exercised by a man who is blinded by his ambition, who thought he could tame the beast of political irrationalism, or at the least harness that energy to his own ends.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
