For a little insight into establishment thinking as they desperately attempt to cling to power, one might look to John Boehner.
If the Republican primaries do not produce a clear winner on the Republican National Convention’s first presidential ballot, former House Speaker John Boehner said the only man who can bring the party together is Speaker Paul Ryan.
He is the man who just signed the omnibus which funded all of Obama’s socialist agenda.
“If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said at the Futures Industry Association conference. “They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.”
He has a point but if the establishment picks someone after millions have voted, it will mean the GOP picked someone who won nothing.
On Tuesday, Ryan said he would not rule out accepting the nomination at a brokered convention.
“You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan said “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, ‘well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows.’”
Boehner has been quiet until now.
Boehner said that after the first ballot, “anybody can be nominated” at the convention in Cleveland.
True but if they do horse trading to reject the will of the people, they will destroy their cushy little existence at the same time.
