The Wash Times reports:
A wealthy businessman with tea party ties confirmed Sunday that he is mounting a primary challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan,
saying that after donating to the Wisconsin Republican’s past campaigns
he feels “betrayed” by the speaker on trade deals and immigration.
businessman, who is not yet revealing his identity, promised that his
run will “shake up the establishment in a profound way,” according to a
political consultant close to the prospective candidate.
emergence of a viable Republican challenger in Wisconsin’s 1st
Congressional District is the culmination of a monthslong recruitment
effort by tea party activists who say they were double-crossed by Mr. Ryan when he passed a $2 trillion spending package late last year.
Paul Ryan has some very serious credibility problems. It's about time that he was held accountable for his back-and-forthright 'conservatism,' particularly on budget matters. After all, he was Chair/Budget and Chair/Ways and Means during the time that Obozo got damn near anything he wanted.
Ryan may blame Obozo, and that's true. But Ryan stood aside and watched--or aided and abetted Obozo--rather than take any meaningful actions.

May he depart just like Jean Schmidt.
