John Boehner: Paul Ryan for President

John Boehner cries again

Via NY Post: Former House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday he’d support his successor, Paul Ryan, for president if Republicans can’t agree on a nominee at the party’s convention in July. “They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee,” Boehner said at the Futures Industry Association in Boca Raton, Fla. His remarks were reported by Politico.

Donald Trump has been the consistent GOP front-runner, but it’s unclear if he’ll amass the 1,237 delegates required to win the nomination on the first ballot.

Ryan, the Wisconsin congressman, served as Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate in 2012 and has endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president this year. During his speech, Boehner referred to the fourth GOP presidential candidate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, as “Lucifer.”

In an interview on CNBC Tuesday night, Ryan didn’t slam the door on the possibility of becoming the compromise GOP candidate. “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Why knows?” Ryan said.

But by Wednesday morning, his office was shooting down the speculation. “The speaker is grateful for the support, but he is not interested. He will not accept a nomination and believes our nominee should be someone who ran this year,” said Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong.
