Rush Limbaugh avoids endorsements and has been very supportive of all the GOP candidates, especially Donald Trump, but he said something very close to an endorsement yesterday.
“If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz…This [Ted Cruz] is the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan.”
Cruz is being squeezed out of the media, including Fox who were out promoting Rubio but seem to have shifted somewhat to Kasich and secondarily, Bush. Roger Ailes has been demoted and Rupert Murdoch and his very liberal sons have taken over.
Murdoch has used his papers for editorials but not his station – before now that is. It’s his right but he can’t claim to be fair and balanced either.
Limbaugh described Trump as a non-ideological candidate.
“Trump’s not a Republican; he’s not a Democrat,” he said.
“He’s running as a Republican, but he’s way beyond any of this. His definition of conservatism was we’re gonna conserve. We’re gonna conserve our money. We’re gonna conserve our whatever…. Donald Trump is not an ideological candidate. He doesn’t look, for example, at Chuck Schumer and see a screaming liberal. And, by the same token, he doesn’t look at Ted Cruz and see a screaming conservative.”
“This is not a criticism of Trump. But for those of you that conservatism’s the answer and conservatism is the way, you have no choice here. Ted Cruz has got to be your guy. There’s nobody even close. Nobody.”
We do have to consider the constitution before voting. There will be several seats up on the Supreme Court of the United States and we know Trump will make deals. We don’t know who he will pick.
Rush does believe Rubio is a conservative but Cruz doesn’t have the baggage of the establishment behind him.
Bill O’Reilly described Trump the same way last evening.
Listen to Rush Limbaugh’s stunning statements about Senator Ted Cruz and businessman Donald Trump. He begins by saying Bush and Kasich were moving left as fast as they could but you would never have to worry about that with Ted Cruz.
