This Tuesday, Rep. Ryan Zinke, a former Navy SEAL Team Six commander, confirmed with Brandon Tyler Webb, founder of the SofRep special operations news site, that he is considering running for House speaker so as to take a stand “against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” including President Barack Hussein Obama.
“I think there are a few people who can do that,” the Montana Republican told Webb. “If folks like Paul Ryan and others step aside, and more of my colleagues ask me to run, I will hear the call to serve. Leadership is about service to country, not self. It’s time to advance the cause of freedom.”
According to Webb, who served under Zinke during his last tour in the Navy, the congressman is “no stranger to good leadership.”
“I would love to see him go against the grain and shake things up as the new speaker,” Webb wrote. “He’s a freshman but knows how to lead.”
And a strong leader is exactly what we need right now, especially given the host of problems that plague us — from nonstop illegal immigration to out-of-control entitlement spending and constant attempts to impinge upon the Second Amendment-protected rights of all Americans.Webb added that we need someone capable of offering “real solutions, not the bullshit political rhetoric we’ve all become accustomed to.”
“Zinke is a proven leader, and in Washington politics it’s time to lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way,” Webb concluded. “Go get’em Z.”
Zinke certainly sounds a whole lot tougher than a weeping John Boehner, who unfortunately has spent his entire term as House Speaker capitulating to the president’s every demand.
As Webb said, we need a real leader, and we need one immediately. Maybe Zinke is that leader.
Do you agree that Zinke would likely make a much better House speaker than John Boehner? Please share this post on Facebook or Twitter and let us know what you think!
