Paul Ryan supporters begin online campaign for House Speaker!/star_debrabird/status/267965005381660673

With an ABC News interview set to air Tuesday evening, Rep. Paul Ryan is taking his first steps back into the national spotlight, and many are hoping the former vice presidential candidate will stay there. Dissatisfaction with the GOP establishment is high as conservatives ponder a second Obama term, and many are convinced House Speaker John Boehner is not the person to counter the president’s ambitions. Is Speaker of the House where Ryan belongs for now?

Hhhmmm… Ryan instead of Crying John for Speaker… Works for me…

Paul Ryan should be new speaker of the house so he maintains a visible role in public life IMO.

A move is on to recruit CONGRESSMAN PAUL RYAN for Speaker of the House. John Boehner is not holding the line. If you agree retweet.

When does House elect a new speaker? If #recount fails, need to impeach both O & B, so Speaker becomes Pres. Want Ryan not jelly Boehner.

While plenty of Republicans were dispirited after Election Day, the idea of a Ryan-led House has many fired up and ready to go again. But will the petitions and retweets lead to change, or is this another setup for yet another disappointing repeat?
