Reince Priebus confident everyone will support eventual nominee


Reince_Priebus_by_Gage_Skidmore-239x300No matter what the candidates say, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is confident that everyone will eventually support the party’s nominee — because they don’t really have a choice:

“They’re not gonna get the data and the tools of the RNC … and tell me they’re not gonna support the nominee, it doesn’t work that way,” the Republican National Committee chairman said in an appearance on Fox News Thursday.

As Trump sparked a series of controversial headlines on the trail and in interviews over the past week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have both called into question their support if Trump is the nominee. And on Tuesday, Trump was clear that he wasn’t holding to his pledge: “No, I don’t anymore,” he said during CNN’s town hall.

Well, that’s one way to do it.

    Amazing! The people that won the House and Senate thanks to we the people and who broke every election promise they made now preaches to us from on high. Petrified and weak minded politicians who, when the rubber hits the road, turn away from we the people for self preservation. We the people are only so much collateral damage to the status quo elitists.

    The last two GOP nominees failed, reportedly because large numbers of Republicans did not vote. The RINO leadership refuses to believe that the same can’t happen this year? They need to be taken down a notch and be forced to change their priorities and ways, and only a determined Republican President can make that happen. Trump comes to mind. But if the RINOs won’t allow a determined nominee to be approved, nothing is likely to be changed. If a popular nominee is rejected, and another big government, high-spending candidate is on the ballot, there will be no do-overs, and one of the socialists on the Democrat ticket will be President. Then the two-party system, to whatever extent it exists, will be finished. Could it be coincidence that the rise and fall of the 3rd Reich has been showing on TV lately? Maybe it gives a glimpse of what an American socialist/Marxist existence could resemble.

    Doing this will ruin the GOP. It’s a good way to end the Republican party. Time for a new party!

    If Trump has the number to be the nominee, there will be trouble if the repubs jerk the nomination from Trump.
    Reince Prebus is a fool if he thinks we will fall in line, whomever they choose to be the nominee.

    If the main stream media didn’t tell me otherwise, I would swear that Reince Prebus and the RNC are determined to destroy the Republican party. I have come to call the Republican establishment the Dems place holders. First the Dems screw everything up, which causes the people to rise up and vote them out. Then the Republicans step in and do absolutely nothing they promised to do to fix the mess. Which so infuriates the voters again that they vote the Dems back into power and they busily resume their efforts to destroy our Republic and turn us into a communist nation. It’s like the Republican establishment thinks their job is to hold the Dems place for them until they can regain power and resume their destruction of America. When viewed from this prospective it comes as no surprise when our so called conservative candidates reveal themselves to be nothing but RINO’s as soon as we elect them. Paul Ryan is just the latest example of what I’m talking about. A RINO place holder for the Socialist Democrat Party. If we want to get off this pathway to our destruction we need to completely overhaul the Republican party. And it looks like electing an outsider like Trump just might be our only opportunity to do that. Hell, it just might be our last chance to do it! I say that if Reince Prebus, the Bush’s, Mitt Romney and the entire Republican establishment are against him, that tells me that Trump must be the right choice. Don’t forget, they called Reagan an outsider too. And they also said that he had no chance of winning the election against Carter. But the people didn’t listen and Reagan went on to become our best President in the last hundred years
