Paul Ryan On Recent Shooting

Just hours after a gunman opened fire on congressional Republicans during a practice baseball game in Virginia on Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan delivered an impassioned speech that called for unity despite partisan differences.

“We are all horrified by this dreadful attack on our friends and on our colleagues and those who serve and protect this Capitol,” Ryan said.

“We are united. We are united in our shock, we are united in our anguish. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us,” Ryan said, prompting the crowd to stand and applaud.

“You know, every day we come here to test and to challenge each other. We feel so deeply about the things that we fight for and the things that we believe in, at times our emotions can clearly get the best of us. We’re all imperfect,” Ryan said.

“But we do not shed our humanity when we enter this chamber. For all the noise and all the fury, we are one family,” the speaker said.

Ryan also mentioned a widely-shared photo of Democratic congressional baseball team members praying for Republicans, which embodied the unity Ryan spoke about.

    Hey Ryan You, McCaine, Grahm, Schumer Reid, Pelosi, Boxer, and the Press ,are just as much to blame for this incident as this scumbag who did the shooting Back up the President All of you get your $hit together and do your jobs that you were elected to do or get he hell out of your positions.

    • Ray Sharer

      Exactly. I am sick to my stomach when I see what you are doing and mostly not doing!!
      If you and the DEMOCRATS cannot get on the same pages, then resign and let someone else do what you were elected to do!!
      This is what the Democrats want of Pres Trump and if that is what you Republicans want, then just continue doing nothing and see what happens!
      This country will be back in the same ole sinking ship called Barrack Obama!!!

        Right now two hundred DEMOCRATS started a law suit to force Trump out of office.And this could start a CIVIL WAR. And if this happens we the people need to take every liberal in the country out.

          War? Yep! Whether it will be a “civil war” or the 2nd American Revolution will be determined by which side wins. Semper Fi!!

    The Dems lost the Presidential Election and seconds later lost their grip on reality . They have tried for the past 10 months to bring President Trump down by character assassination and outright conspiracy lies which has not worked . Their next step will be outright assassination , Hell one of those Liberal Rag News Papers said as much in an opt add they wrote but retracted it due to the assassination attempt of the Republican Members on June 14, 2017 . The Democrats and Bi ASS Media will stop at nothing to keep their gains over the last 8 yrs they would even be willing to start a Civil War in this country . The real fact is they are the real Racist , Fascist , Zeniafobs and so on that they accuse RePublicans of being . In fact everything they are accusing the President and Rep. of has actually been done by Hitlery Clinton , Obama , Comey , Lynch and others in the Obama Administration. yet they will not investigate that Quagmire of LAWLESSNESS FILTH & TREASON .

        Semper Fi! As we say in the community, “Welcome Home”!!

        • Millard Huff

          You too.

  • Millard Huff

    We need to take away all guns from the crazy democrats before they kill us all.Very stupid people they be.

  • Ann Stow

    The Democrats don’t want to unite for the greater good of our country! For them, it’s all about Party! It wasn’t 24hrs after the shooting Pelosi was at the mic blaming Republicans! So much for unity! Also 200 congressional Democrats are filing suit against President Trump, to remove him from office!!!

  • RNRT

    This incident of the shooting is not more than a clear demonstration that the liberals are not willing to accept the fact that America is tired of their anti-America behaviors. The democrat is not more than a cult. For example, when Obama was the president all of his followers were always 100% agree with whatever he decided. It is the same as any extreme and fanatic religious cult. Means if you do not agree with them you most die.

  • rivahmitch

    Ryan has always been a believer in maintaining the Washington establishment and its power. His statement is no surprise. Preemptive surrender is as much his style as it was Boehners.

    I didn’t trust this guy from day one. He should be fired, and half the sabotaging would end. He has no love or respect for our President, and the sooner he is gone the better. He is one of those that say one thing, and then contact his cronies to say another. The less President Trump has to do with him the better. i would tell him a secret ( a false one ) and see how far it gets. He can’t be trusted, no way,. I don’t see any comments from him, about what is going on with all Comey and Mueller and the 13 plus lawyers he intends to hire, to nit pick until they can find some little thing that our President may have commented on – anything with the word Russia would do, he is a slime, and I truly wish the president would wipe the slate of this guy and Mueller,. Great speech from this coward, if they shoot one, they shoot all of us or words to that affect.
