For this project, I decided to begin with the conservative side. I went to Fox News to find extreme right comments. I found what I was looking for. I chose this particular comment because it shows the extent to which Tea Partiers hate Paul Ryan. It is difficult to discern who hates him more: Democrats, or Republicans. Shown below is the comment to which I replied.
Paul Ryan has to be defeated even if it takes voting for someone in the opposite party to get rid of him. I am with you Reverend Graham I too have quit the Republican party as week kneed blowhards saying what conservatives want to hear then capitulating to evil Demoncrats. BTW.. How can any Christian sincerely call themselves a Demoncrat knowing what the Demoncrat party stands for..
If a Republican hates Paul Ryan, the same Republican would certainly have hated ronald Reagan. For Ronald Reagan was willing to compromise, and he did compromise when necessary, even with a Republican majority in Congress and full Republican support. Yet Paul Ryan, with no such luxuries, must compromise and still be accepted and supported if he is ever to be as great as Reagan.
Paul Ryan and the majority of Republicans in office approved the budget deal with Planned Parenthood funding because they knew that they lacked the power and the seats in the senate to rid of Planned Parenthood funding. As Republicans, they would rather not fund any abortion agency, but they knew that if they did not pass the budget deal, consequences would follow. Consequences including government shutdown and no limit on a nation with excessive spending problems. Thus the economic consequences, in Ryan’s mind, outweighed the social issue of abortion, so he and other house leaders compromised.
