    Saw Ryan on ABC network news

    He essentially said his tea party position on taxes was favored by the electorate since GOP still controls the house.

    What he conveniently ignored is that even his own support from his home district has gone down hill with his no tax increase for Romney or Trump. Ryan did win but by a much less margin than prior elections. This time he only got 54.9%. In 2010, he had 68.2%. Even in the sea-change 2008 election year, he had 64%. If that is not an indictment, don't know what it will take for Ryan to take his head out of the sand.

    Of course, we know the other top tea party favorite nearly lost her re-election bid:

    Candidate Votes Pct.
    ✓ Michele Bachmann I 179,202 50.6%
    Jim Graves 174,905 49.4%
