The Congressional Black Caucus has put the word out that they are willing to work with John Boehner’s predecessor, Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House.
Instead of Republicans hailing that as good news, I would consider a volley lobbed over the head of the new speaker who the CBC is more interested in controlling than work with.
leaders of the CBC see Ryan as more “open-minded and pragmatic” and willing to cross the party line supposedly “in ways that his predecessor, former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), did not.”
Where did the CBC get such a thought?

CBC Chairman G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) grabbed Ryan Thursday on the House floor as the soon-to-be Speaker was working his way through a sea of hugs to accept the gavel. His message was simple: We want to work with you.
‘He calls me G.K. and I call him P.D., and I told him that the Congressional Black Caucus looks forward to working with him. And he acknowledged it — said he looked forward to working [together],’ Butterfield said afterwards. ‘And I believe him.’
Ryan’s speech to the House chamber Thursday has fueled that optimism….
Okay should P.D. not be as stupid as G.K., B.H.O. and fellow goons in the “CBC”, “DSA” are hoping the party of the welfare state is lining decks of race cards to put the new speaker in line.
And where will the CBC begin their wave of assault on Ryan?
The CBC went after Ryan in the spring of 2014 after alleged remarks made by him regarding the culture and high unemployment rate of men, all too often, generations of men living in the inner cities:
“We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work, and so there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.”
Never mind that it is true, the CBC threw every race card in the deck at Ryan who insisted that his statement had nothing to do with race.
Rep. Barbara Lee, a pro at race baiting called Ryan statements “a thinly veiled racial attack.”
With the CBC’s race baiting tactics of the having hit their mark, Ryan met with them to make amends. Yeah, the CBC has been waiting for such a moment. They are going to make Paul Ryan’s life hell.
Who is kidding whom? The endgame is to keep the executive office in the hands of Communists and to take back both Houses.
As far Ryan’s vow of no immigration reform, the American people have heard it all before.
