No insult to him, but why is Paul Ryan the Speaker of the House?

Pretty much the question, why him?

The Speaker of the House before him were old men who have been there forever. Even Boehner is young in my book. I think Tip O'Neal or the people before and after him. I think the job would require and want by the most senior and eldest person of the party. Ryan is not even 50. Why him?

Ryan is considered a "serious" Republican, he is considered the deepest thinker on the Republican bench, even though his economic plans make no sense in the real world, some would say they are the least ridiculous plans the GOP has.
That being said, he recently talked about how he's always wanted to dismantle Social Security and Medicare, it was the subject of his conversations at "keggers" in college.

He can keep a straight face while spewing pure nonsense, a vital key to success in the GOP.

Paul Ryan is the best "young" member of the House, with his overall experience and determination to get this nation moving in the right direction. The "old" heads...both Rep and Dems...are the ones that have led us into historical debt, lack of even a national budget, millions not even counted in the unemployed lists, health care costs that aretotally unsustainable etc. He is very intelligent and articulate.
