The thing people like about House Speaker Paul D. Ryan is that he is a serious guy who is capable of thinking big and has an ambitious agenda to salvage our ungovernable federal bureaucracy.
He was never the smoothest communicator or slickest politician. Serious, smart and honest has always been his currency.
So now the question is, Mr. Speaker, where is your big, bold agenda?
This country is at a political crossroads that only comes around once or twice in a century. Congressional Republicans are totally blowing it.
