Listening to Paul Ryan, House Speaker, explain why his supposed replacement for Obamacare bill has failed miserably to gain enough votes to pass, and to those who tried to say it was Trump who lost, reminded me of a fight I had in Boot Camp in the Navy.
The other guy was my size, only he was a bully and so were his friends, and he kept on messing with me until finally I punched him in the eye and caused his brow to bleed pretty good. His bully friends were all angry with me and demanded the two of us go into a locked room and fight to the end. I agreed, in we went, the door was locked, and I beat the living crap out of him, only we were both lightweights and couldn’t really do much damage to each other. Finally after about an hour of fighting, he asked to quit, and asked if he could go out the door first.
Considering what he looked like, I really didn’t care, and let him. His friends outside immediately declared him the winner because he came out first, so I offered to go back in with him and do it again, and they shut up. I didn’t need to point out that his head and face looked like a cloth sack full of golf balls, while I didn’t have a mark on me.
Donald Trump maintained the position that he was doing his best to get any sort of repeal of Obamacare passed, because it would have been better than nothing, but that all he could do was try to help, and this is true.
Paul Ryan kept insisting that his crappy bill that no one liked was going to pass, and now the real loser is the one everyone is looking at, instead.
I’ve been expecting an outcome very much like this one. While many Conservatives were worried that Pres. Trump was being misled and fooled by Ryan, I wasn’t. I think that what really happened here is that Trump led Ryan right down the Primrose Path to his destruction. Ryan is anti-Trump and everyone knows it, he’s a RINO Globalist and everyone knows that too, and he needs to be removed as Speaker so we can start getting bills put forward that aren’t more Socialist crap.
Now, there’s a lot of talk by important Republicans of replacing him as Speaker. Who won this fight? President Donald Trump, absolutely, because he beat the crap out of Ryan and came out of it without a mark on him.
