Congressman Paul Ryan: Ready to Reply to State of the Union

                                                                        Paul Ryan

Rising Star

  • One of the rising stars of the Republican Party is Paul Ryan from Wisconsin.He made an historical   television appearance when he and other Republicans were  invited to the White House for a discussion on the Health Care Bill.  Ryan came prepared with the 2000 plus pages of the bill and notes about many of it’s polices. The interesting exchange between himself and the President fell just slightly short of confrontational.

Birth Order

  • If we look at his birth order we find he is a Four/Only Double birth order. Of his three older siblings the closest in age to him is five years older.  His father died when he was 16 years old and he was the last child living at home with his mother.  As he has said, “It was just the two of us, since my siblings were off in college.”  As the fourth born he is the true baby in the family but since he spent so many years home alone with his mother he added the power of the Only child to his birth order

Double Birth Order

  • He realized early in life that you have to work for whatever you want.  As the baby in the family this is a very unusual position for the fourth born with no older siblings to help him.  All the added power and characteristics of the Only child has been a great benefit. He is well liked and that goes along with his fourth born characteristics but he can also be in your face having no fear of those older or those in power. This is what he gets from the Only side of his Double Birth Order.  Look for further confrontations as he can make those in power very uncomfortable.  He may be one of the younger congressmen but don’t be fooled by his age.  We should be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Reply to the State of the Union

  • As the Chairman of the House Budget committee he has been selected to respond to the President’s 2011 State of the Union address.  Don’t expect him go easy on  President Obama.  He will be in your face as a number Four but polite like an Only.
