This Tuesday, Rep. Ryan Zinke, a former Navy SEAL Team Six commander, confirmed with Brandon Tyler Webb, founder of the SofRep special operations news site, that he is considering running for House speaker so as to take a stand “against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” including President Barack Hussein Obama.
“I think there are a few people who can do that,” the Montana Republican told Webb. “If folks like Paul Ryan and others step aside, and more of my colleagues ask me to run, I will hear the call to serve. Leadership is about service to country, not self. It’s time to advance the cause of freedom.”
According to Webb, who served under Zinke during his last tour in the Navy, the congressman is “no stranger to good leadership.”
“I would love to see him go against the grain and shake things up as the new speaker,” Webb wrote. “He’s a freshman but knows how to lead.”
And a strong leader is exactly what we need right now, especially given the host of problems that plague us — from nonstop illegal immigration to out-of-control entitlement spending and constant attempts to impinge upon the Second Amendment-protected rights of all Americans.
“Zinke is a proven leader, and in Washington politics it’s time to lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way,” Webb concluded. “Go get’em Z.”
