I'm Old Enough to remember when Palin hitting Ryan was a joke

Do you remem­ber back in May when Sarah Palin said this:

“I think Paul Ryan is soon to be ‘Can­tored,’ as in Eric Can­tor,” Palin said, refer­ring to the for­mer Repub­li­can House major­ity leader who was ousted in a shock­ing upset in 2014 when chal­lenger Dave Brat ran to his right in a Vir­ginia primary.

“His polit­i­cal career is over but for a mir­a­cle because he has so dis­re­spected the will of the peo­ple, and as the leader of the GOP, the con­ven­tion, cer­tainly he is to remain neu­tral, and for him to already come out and say who he will not sup­port is not a wise deci­sion of his,” Palin continued.

You could hear the howls of laugh­ter from Wash­ing­ton DC to Wash­ing­ton state. That real­ity star has been is going to oust the speak­ing of the House? What a joke. This reac­tion was typ­i­cal.

It is no sur­prise that Palin, who has become some­thing of a Trump lap dog since endors­ing him in Jan­u­ary would jump all over Ryan for fail­ing to obse­quiously bow to Trump fast enough. As for the chal­lenge to Ryan, it’s worth not­ing that Ted Cruz beat Don­ald Trump by nearly 30,000 votes in Ryan’s First Con­gres­sional Dis­trict when vot­ers there had the chance to voice their opin­ion. Given that, one doubts that attacks on Ryan that are cen­tered on his refusal to imme­di­ately jump on the “Trump Train” as it is being called are going to have much of an impact on what is likely to be a very easy August 9th pri­mary for Ryan’s seat. In any case, one seri­ously doubts that vot­ers in Wis­con­sin are going to care much about what Palin thinks about the mat­ter in any case.

And at Hotair this headline:

Poll: Ryan barely hang­ing onto a 64-​point lead in his district

brought a lot of chuck­les to the “Palin is a joke” crowd.

Well two months later nobody is laugh­ing any­more:

Fol­low­ing a new pri­mary elec­tion poll show­ing that House Speaker Paul Ryan has plum­meted to well below 50 per­cent in his home dis­trict, Ryan is out with new mail­ers assur­ing Wis­con­sin vot­ers of his desire to secure the bor­der, and urg­ing them to sup­port him in his con­tentious August 9th pri­mary election.


The new mail­ers tout­ing Ryan’s sup­port for bor­der secu­rity is inter­est­ing given that just last year, Ryan cham­pi­oned a spend­ing bill that fully funded Pres­i­dent Obama’s open bor­ders agenda– includ­ing fund­ing sanc­tu­ary cities, exec­u­tive amnesty, and the release of crim­i­nal aliens. The mail­ers also come amid new reports indi­cat­ing that, one month after his elec­tion, Ryan plans to bring up “crim­i­nal sen­tenc­ing” mea­sures that could release thou­sands of crim­i­nal ille­gal aliens from prison onto the streets.

Hmm isn’t this the same thing that hap­pened to Can­tor, why I do believe it is and like Can­tor appar­ently Ryan has been work­ing with extreme pro amnesty forces like Luis Gutier­rez, on the sly of course

“Paul Ryan and I talk,” Gutier­rez told the film­mak­ers in 2014. “What we do with Ryan,” Gutier­rez explained, “is he puts together a bunch of bills, one of which is legal­iza­tion, and that’s the one we join him on. The legal­iza­tion is good enough that I can go and say we need to get in bed.”

Gutier­rez told film­mak­ers that their col­lab­o­ra­tion had to be con­ducted in secret, so as not to tip off Repub­li­can vot­ers. “You feel like you have to kind of sneak around to have din­ner with these guys,” Gutierrez’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions direc­tor, Dou­glas Rivlin, said, refer­ring to his secret meet­ings with House Repub­li­cans to push amnesty. “Unlike some of you [exple­tive deleted], I don’t mess around with my wife, so – but let me tell you – right? I feel like I’m sneak­ing around right on my Party … when I have din­ner with you guys,” he said.

And let me remind you that this is the #1 issue that Don­ald Trump, who Sarah Palin endorsed early, also to a lot of laugh­ter, is run­ning on.

Now if Paul Ryan ended up win­ning his pri­mary I won’t be all that upset, he’s gen­er­ally on the side of the angels and he knows fis­cal mat­ters bet­ter than most, but if he wins by a hair or goes down to defeat, let me make one sug­ges­tion to our friends on both the right and the left:

You under­es­ti­mate Sarah Palin at your own risk.

Do you remember back in May when Sarah Palin said this:

“I think Paul Ryan is soon to be ‘Cantored,’ as in Eric Cantor,” Palin said, referring to the former Republican House majority leader who was ousted in a shocking upset in 2014 when challenger Dave Brat ran to his right in a Virginia primary.

“His political career is over but for a miracle because he has so disrespected the will of the people, and as the leader of the GOP, the convention, certainly he is to remain neutral, and for him to already come out and say who he will not support is not a wise decision of his,” Palin continued.

You could hear the howls of laughter from Washington DC to Washington state. That reality star has been is going to oust the speaking of the House? What a joke. This reaction was typical.

It is no surprise that Palin, who has become something of a Trump lap dog since endorsing him in January would jump all over Ryan for failing to obsequiously bow to Trump fast enough. As for the challenge to Ryan, it’s worth noting that Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump by nearly 30,000 votes in Ryan’s First Congressional District when voters there had the chance to voice their opinion. Given that, one doubts that attacks on Ryan that are centered on his refusal to immediately jump on the “Trump Train” as it is being called are going to have much of an impact on what is likely to be a very easy August 9th primary for Ryan’s seat. In any case, one seriously doubts that voters in Wisconsin are going to care much about what Palin thinks about the matter in any case.

And at Hotair this headline:

Poll: Ryan barely hanging onto a 64-point lead in his district

brought a lot of chuckles to the “Palin is a joke” crowd.

Well two months later nobody is laughing anymore:

Following a new primary election poll showing that House Speaker Paul Ryan has plummeted to well below 50 percent in his home district, Ryan is out with new mailers assuring Wisconsin voters of his desire to secure the border, and urging them to support him in his contentious August 9th primary election.


The new mailers touting Ryan’s support for border security is interesting given that just last year, Ryan championed a spending bill that fully funded President Obama’s open borders agenda– including funding sanctuary cities, executive amnesty, and the release of criminal aliens. The mailers also come amid new reports indicating that, one month after his election, Ryan plans to bring up “criminal sentencing” measures that could release thousands of criminal illegal aliens from prison onto the streets.

Hmm isn’t this the same thing that happened to Cantor, why I do believe it is and like Cantor apparently Ryan has been working with extreme pro amnesty forces like Luis Gutierrez,  on the sly of course

“Paul Ryan and I talk,” Gutierrez told the filmmakers in 2014. “What we do with Ryan,” Gutierrez explained, “is he puts together a bunch of bills, one of which is legalization, and that’s the one we join him on. The legalization is good enough that I can go and say we need to get in bed.”

Gutierrez told filmmakers that their collaboration had to be conducted in secret, so as not to tip off Republican voters. “You feel like you have to kind of sneak around to have dinner with these guys,” Gutierrez’s communications director, Douglas Rivlin, said, referring to his secret meetings with House Republicans to push amnesty. “Unlike some of you [expletive deleted], I don’t mess around with my wife, so–but let me tell you–right? I feel like I’m sneaking around right on my Party … when I have dinner with you guys,” he said.

And let me remind you that this is the #1 issue that Donald Trump, who Sarah Palin endorsed early, also to a lot of laughter, is running on.

Now if Paul Ryan ended up winning his primary I won’t be all that upset, he’s generally on the side of the angels and he knows fiscal matters better than most, but if he wins by a hair or goes down to defeat, let me make one suggestion to our friends on both the right and the left:

You underestimate Sarah Palin at your own risk.
