Paul Ryan in for another term as House speaker

The GOP voted unanimously to renominate Paul Ryan as speaker of the House, which shows that the caucus ignored Steve Bannon's strategy to oust Ryan as enemy number one.

The Hill reported a month ago:

In December 2015, weeks after Ryan became Speaker, Bannon wrote in an internal Breitbart email obtained by The Hill that the "long game" for his news site was for Ryan to be "gone" by the spring.

Ryan is now willing to work with Bannon to get things done.

The entire Turbo-Conservative Media "Establishment" (TCME) that dominates talk radio and TV and certain websites has also been gunning for Ryan as a part of the white whale called the "Establishment."  However, now Trump's administration will need Ryan and McConnell, two Washington Insiders, to get his agenda through. 

Truthfully, the real problem has always been Obama's constitutional veto for the past eight years, not the white whale.  The other problem has been Harry Reid's Senate, particularly from 2010, when the GOP took the House, to 2014, when they took the Senate as well.  Congressman John Campbell (R-Irvine, Orange County, Calif., now retired) told Hugh Hewitt on the latter's show around 2014 that the House GOP sent hundreds of bills to the Senate over those four years, but they sat outside the Senate door.

The heated anti-"Establishment" rhetoric throughout the TCME will soon diminish (though not die out completely) now that Obama and his veto pen will disappear from power on January 20, 2017. and the GOP can finally–finally!–pass legislation.

In any case, the House GOP showed foresight and pragmatism when they renominated Ryan.  It was a winning move.
