The NY Times editorial board as of July 2016, thinks Paul Ryan was “…— a once promising politician who has lost his way.” How perceptive and timely of the Times.   NOT!

For anyone paying attention, it is obvious that Paul Ryan was just another posturing, double talking anti union Republican politician, long on whiteness, privilege, dogma, homilies and lectures who was short of personal humility, talent and empathy for the governed.

With regard to Trump, Ryan’s genuflection before the man is nothing that was not entirely predictable. Ryan has been get-a-long, go-a-long, self serving politician since the get go of his career. As for being a wonk, all Republicans think anyone who favors cutting taxes, or ending Social Security is considered a wonk.

Ryan is what he is – not much.
