(Human Events)   Good news for Paul Ryan (R-WIshes he had won). Not only does he get to violate the six-year term limit on being a budget committee chairman but he also won't have to waste any time 'mansplaining' to any other of the all white male chairmen   (humanevents.com ) divider line

This does not bode well for next year's budget.

But, according to a report in the Hill, Ryan made a pitch to continue on for another two years as the House's resident budget expert to a group of Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

I have obtained a transcript of his pitch:

"Dear Gentlemen of the House,

I would like to remain as your resident budget expert, and there are many reasons for this, but it would take me too long to go through all of the math.

In conclusion, tax breaks.

Good day, and thank you for your time."

House GOP rules state that committee chairmen and ranking members have a six-year term limit imposed upon them and extending past that six years is rare.

He is their budget expert? Who is he sleeping with? No way can anyone take his budgets seriously. Who is he sleeping with?

I think you forgot how this works. You elected me, and therefore have to impress ME and pass MY referenda and bills - not vice versa. 6 votes and your inability to answer a simple question lets me know one thing. You are not an Ayn Rand devotee. I am a trainer on the side, in fact, I am heading to the gym in 26 minutes!

So...

Paul Ryan for House Budget Committee (really bad math)
Michelle Bachmann for House Intelligence Committee (words can't describe how bad a choice that was)
Lamar Smith for the House Science Space and Technology Committee (global warming critic and author of SOPA)

They're trying to sabotage everything they can... even the committees to discuss dealing with things. I can't wait until they've marginalized themselves out of existence in politics.

24 women, I think it was. 10% of the GOP caucus (caucus... he he).

Of course, when that number includes luminaries like Michelle Bachmann and Virginia Foxx.... Boehner might have a point.

To be fair wouldnt all the chairmen be male?
 
2012-11-28 04:58:15 PM  
In all fairness, Paul Ryan is a woman on his mother's side, and also on his paternal grandmother's side.

I think it's sexist to treat Ryan as some privileged white dude, and inconsiderate of his heritage, when he has people so recent in his family tree who have endured so much discrimination.

Lamar Smith is a step up from Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin.

I don't know if anyone explained this to the GOP, but if you ignore them whenever you want, they aren't really rules. More like suggestions. Guidelines, perhaps.
