Another Reason Why Paul Ryan Cannot become Speaker

As a Wisconsin native, I would love to have someone from Wisconsin become Speaker of the House in the U.S. House of Representatives, but Paul Ryan would not be my 1st, 2nd or 3rd choice.
From Breitbart: 
Politico’s Mike Allen thinks President Barack Obama likes the idea of for Speaker.
“The White House would like that idea,” Allen said during an interview with Laura Ingraham on her radio show today. “Because they would like one more win … what they’ve always told me is that they admire Paul Ryan for being a substantive, smart guy.”
Speaking to business leaders in Washington D.C. last month, Obama acknowledged that his administration was working with Ryan to negotiate some level of tax reform, even though Senate Majority Leader disagreed.
“To his credit, Paul Ryan expressed real interest in discussions and negotiations,” Obama said during his remarks to the Business Roundtable Headquarters in September.  http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/10/12/mike-allen-white-house-like-paul-ryan-speaker/
I'm pretty sure that if President Obama wants you to become Speaker of the House, that should be an automatic disqualifier.
With a F rating from the Conservative Review, that is also a red flag for Ryan becoming Speaker.
So, while it would be nice to have the Speaker form Wisconsin, Ryan would be a very bad candidate for Speaker.
