Jeb Isn’t Gone Yet… Secret Plan to Hand Him Nomination Comes Out
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh made a frightening prediction on his show Tuesday when he told listeners the panicked Republican establishment might just try to impose Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on voters as the Republican presidential nominee despite their obvious displeasure with him.
Limbaugh suspected that if the GOP denies front-runner Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz the nomination, they’ll pull Bush out of the closet, dust him off and present him as some kind of ridiculous option.
How they could do this relies on a loose interpretation of convention committee rules involving the issue of first-ballot delegates and how they are not bound to vote for the candidate that won their state’s primaries, Limbaugh said.
“If they succeed in denying Trump or Ted Cruz 1,237 delegates by the end of the primary process, I’m here to tell you Jeb Bush is gonna be the nominee. That’s what they’re gonna do. That’s what they’ve always wanted,” Limbaugh predicted.
This kind of nomination would suit Bush, as he would not have to “kowtow to Republican tea party base voters,” Limbaugh added. He wouldn’t have to talk about abortion, immigration or anything that matters, he explained. These are ideal conditions for Bush.
Then Limbaugh went even further and said, “If not Jeb, they’ll go Romney.”
Talk about crazy.
Listen to Rush’s comments below:
If this prediction comes true, it would remove all doubt that the establishment Republicans will do just about anything to keep Trump from winning the nomination.
By doing so, they would continue to alienate and anger conservative voters, which is the very reason that Trump became so popular among conservatives in the first place.
Conservatives are sick and tired of how the Republicans in Washington are doing things, and a contested convention might just drive many of them away for good.
It would be an absolute disgrace that they would stoop so low as to try to force Bush on voters, but sadly, it would not be much of a surprise.
