From the October 21 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:
SEAN HANNITY: All right, the other big news of the day is what is happening with the race for speaker. Now, when I was interviewed by USA Today, and it went somewhat viral that I said Paul Ryan is the nicest guy you'll ever want to meet. He's everything that you love about people from the Midwest, he really is. He's a family guy, he's kind, he's measured, he's a policy wonk, he's hard working, he's committed, all of those things. But I said, the job of speaker is not for him. And I can tell you a hundred different reasons why I don't think this is the right job for him. And I've been telling people now, for days and I've been telling a lot of you that I think I'd rather see somebody that already has been successful, and the case I don't think there's been a more successful Speaker of the House than Newt Gingrich is the last 50 some-odd years.
