Could Paul Ryan Be The Savior Of The GOP?

Hang on conservatives, there may be hope for the GOP: Paul Ryan. But you’ll have to wait until 2020.

The former vice president nominee declined to run for president this year saying it wasn’t in his plans, but perhaps he caught the scent in the wind. Perhaps it was just a shrewd move to not get involved in such a volatile political year. Just look at the level of mud-slinging both candidates and supporters have sunk to already, and the primaries aren't even over yet.

As Cruz and Trump tear each other down, Ryan sat out; but he might just be waiting in the wings for his moment. Half the Republican party vows to never vote for Trump; the other half vows not to vote for anyone else. Both are handing the White House over to Clinton on a silver platter.

Then there's Ryan. Former Speaker of the House John Boehner (OH- R) has said he hopes for a brokered convention, and that Ryan, who is not even running, will win the nomination. Ryan already said he would decline it, but a recent speech by the speaker raised some eyebrows that Ryan has not ruled the oval office out of his future.

“My dad used to say, if you’re not a part of the solution, you’re a part of the problem," said Ryan in his 'State of American Politics' speech to congressional interns. "So I have made it a mission of my Speakership to raise our gaze and aim for a brighter horizon.”

“Instead of talking about what politics is today, I want to talk about what politics can be. I want to talk about what our country can be,” he said in a more presidential tone than we’ve heard this whole election season.

“I think Paul Ryan just launched his 2020 campaign,” tweeted Chicago consultant @johnvmoore. A wave of other 2020 tweets shows similar suspicions.

Ryan, who is seen as young, dynamic and Reaganesque, might be just the kind of person the country would turn to in the aftermath of a failed first term for Clinton. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, who refuses to back Trump if he's given the nomination, lays down the bottom line: "[Ryan would] bring experience, intellect and, more importantly, temperament," he said.

Hopefully the country can survive the wait.
