Last week the new Speaker of the House joined my program for his first radio interview since becoming Speaker of the House.
Speaker Ryan promised a much-needed, night-and-day change for the chamber, one that foreshadows crucial differences in the way Congress will operate:
Clip: “Look, I see the whole shooting match coming up in 2016. Again, one of the reasons why I chose to do this, and one of the reasons, one of the conditions, more or less, I talked to my colleagues about, which is we’ve got to go on offense, big and bold, specific agenda and vision in 2016, and let the country choose, because the kind of an election we have to have is a mandate election.”
The new speaker knows the contemporary media environment and he knows he must sell ideas and help build an infrastructure for conservative ideas … and he did not waste any time before he got about the business of doing so.
Speaker Ryan comes armed for the communications battles that are ahead.
