Speaking to college Republicans last Friday at the Madison Masonic Center in Madison, Wisconsin, House Speaker Paul Ryan made a bombshell admission.
“I really call myself a classical liberal more than a conservative,” he said.
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump surely did, as he has repeatedly warned of Ryan’s “sad” leadership skills and penchant for buckling to pressure from liberals.
Granted, being a classical liberal is not a bad thing. I wish everybody in the Democrat Party was a classical liberal.
Here’s the problem: Being a classical liberal while serving as a Republican congressman makes Paul Ryan a bonafide hack, especially given the current political climate.
