This is another sign that the Republicans are a party in turmoil. Paul Ryan’s name has been floated as a possible contender to replace Boehner as speaker of the house. Alas, there is opposition from conservatives. It seems that Ryan is not conservative enough.
Is this not the same man whose budget that was praised by conservatives? The same budget that would fundamentally change some entitlement programs? Is this not the same person who conservatives rallied around in 2012 because of his conservative credentials?
Seriously, if Paul Ryan is not conservative enough, conservatism has indeed gone off the deep end.
