ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Republican Party is beset by leaders who fear the press. Former House Speaker John Boehner displayed enormous trepidation when speaking to media members, and current Speaker Paul Ryan shows the same weakness. For the past four years Ryan has encouraged his members to vote with the Democrats. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t even possess confidence in conservatism, much less confidence in espousing it, in public.

When the press sees fear in the eyes of leadership, it goes after them in full force. In Ryan’s case, his countenance of fear is just going to make the press push harder.

We need leaders who are unafraid of the press. And that means we need new leadership in the House and Senate.
