Ryan's Mouth Says No, But His Eyes Say Please DM Me A "Candid" Picture

I noted a while ago the claim that privately, Ryan wasn't as firm on that "no" than he was publicly.

Fresh new claims that he is, supposedly, "considering" such a move, and a lot of we-have-to-publish-something-besides-WeinerGate-story-manufacturing at the HuffPost, which claims Ryan's freshest "no" is the weakest ever.

Linking to Hot Air (not HuffPo), judge for yourself. It is true that he seems not to altogether dismiss it, but then, when asks if that's what he meant, he once again says "my mind's not running in that way."

Or something. Look, the video's there. I'm not his secretary.

I keep saying this, but Ryan's Plan will be on the ballot in 2012. I don't want to blame Ryan for doing the right thing, but having gotten the party a little bit pregnant with his plan, isn't he sort of obligated to do the right thing and marry it, and make sure that child is provided for?

Most of the field is distancing itself from the child. Of course. Because it's not their child.

In further highly speculative silly stuff, some Iowa Christie fans say he did not completely shut the door on a presidential run, during a meeting.

Although Christie didn’t promise to enter the race during the dinner with the seven Iowa Republicans on Tuesday night, he never flatly declared he wouldn’t, said Gary Kirke, a business entrepreneur and an organizer of the recruitment trip.

As you can see from the Ryan clip, though, there is a lot of people tea-reading responses into what they want to hear. If Chris Christie doesn't attack people with a flying clothesline turnbuckle Superman leap when asked, it's taken as "I'm interested..."

Of all the possibilities here, I think Christie has been the most effusive and persuasive in declaring his complete disinterest in the run.

I do sort of hold that against him. And Ryan, for that matter.

Yes, these are good men. But this nation is in dire straits, and they won't answer the call.

That's their choice, but it's my choice to think unwell of them for that.

No matter how down you get on our candidates, bear in mind that these guys are actually willing to answer the call and try to win this country back from Obama and his Progressive Depression.
