Republican Rep. Paul Ryan (WI): President Obama Seeking a “Political Conquest” of Republicans

by Colonel on January 27, 2013

““When you saw his speech, say, at the inauguration, it leads us to conclude that he’s not looking to moderate, that he’s not looking to move to the middle,” Mr. Ryan said in an interview on the NBC News program “Meet the Press.” “He’s looking to go farther to the left, and he wants to fight us every step of the way politically.”

Mr. Ryan, in his first major interview since the November election, also warned that more partisan gridlock was in store as lawmakers prepared to renew debate over balancing the budget and raising the country’s debt limit.

His remarks echoed those of other Republican leaders including John A. Boehner, the House speaker, who last week said Mr. Obama was seeking to “annihilate” the Republican Party.
