Primary Jeb Bush Backer Pledges To Vote For Hillary Clinton in 2016…

Last week a leaked GOPe seven page strategy memo surfaced outlining the Republican anxiety with the support of Donald Trump.  One section of the memo stated:

…”[…]  Trump Can Hit the Right Chord – We may not like it, but Trump has connected with voters on issues like trade with China and America’s broken borders”…. (memo pdf)

Yes, the officials within the Republican party “don’t like” the fact candidate Donald “Trump has connected with voters”.  For the GOPe the goal is always to connect with the professional political class (Wall Street, K-Street, Lobbyists, Donors) not those pesky unwashed masses called, “voters” – yuck.

You might remember several weeks ago Mitt Romney said “they would take out” Donald Trump by December 15th.   Romney never defined “they”, but you can look at the quote above and get a pretty good idea who “they” are.  Kasich kicked off the GOPe attacks, and immediately saw his own poll numbers in New Hampshire collapse.

And so today the second charge begins….  Many people mocked our prior presentation when we stated months ago (numerous times) that Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio supporters will vote for Hillary Clinton if they do not win the nomination.   Here’s further evidence in that regard:

Mike Fernandez 2jeb bush what

(Miami Herald) One of Florida’s biggest conservative Republican moneymen — and a billionaire backer of Jeb Bush — is so disgusted by Donald Trump’s candidacy that if he has to, he’ll do the unthinkable:

“If I have a choice — and you can put it in bold — if I have a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton, I’m choosing Hillary,” Miami healthcare magnate Mike Fernandez told the Miami Herald on Friday. “She’s the lesser of two evils.”

Outraged by Trump’s unimpeded ascent, Fernandez is taking on the GOP frontrunner himself. He purchased a full-page ad in the upcoming Sunday edition of the Herald calling Trump a “narcissistic BULLYionaire with a hunger to be adored.” He also likened him to some of history’s bloodiest demagogues.

“You have no idea how furious I am with my friends in the Republican Party who have embraced this guy,” Fernandez said.

Fernandez, who also plans to run the ads in Des Moines and Las Vegas newspapers on Dec. 14, said he didn’t notify the Bush campaign of his plans. Fernandez was the single highest donor to the political committee backing Bush, Right to Rise USA, as of the last financial disclosure report at the end of June. His contribution: more than $3 million. (read more)

  1. The Republican party is always chastising the voters to stay within the party and vote republican even if your candidate doesn’t win the primary. The Democrats say the same to their own. Now we have one republican establishment player who is willing to jump party lines rather than vote for Donald Trump. Ask yourself why it’s different this time…
    I believe it’s because there is no difference any longer between the republicans and the democrats. The only political difference in America today is between the People and our would be masters.
    Donald Trump is the only candidate who is not owned by either side. He can neither pass a republican or democrat litmus test. This makes him the perfect candidate for the people at this point. He is not the perfect candidate, just the perfect candidate for right now.
    Take America back for the People not the Party.

      Check out the comment section to this article about the Cuban Bush donor who said he’s voting for Hillary if Trump’s the nominee. It’s running 99-1 pro Trump.

    • So much for loyalty oaths! These are the same moneybags who twisted Trump’s arm into vowing to back the GOP nominee and not run third party.

      Between the John Kasich’s New Flood of Flop Sweat in America or whatever that idiotic smear campaign is called, and Jeb going on the offensive and people urging defection for Trump…

      Truce is over.

      They had better not try any sabotaging stunts on Trump like they did to Ron Paul. They had better play clean. Trump will ruin them.

      Sundance was right, what we’re seeing is the true colors of the Uniparty. This guy is a “health care magnate”, AKA crony-capitalist so, on realizing that his hand-picked candidate is a loser, he’s worried that a savvy guy like Trump will stop his health-care gravy-train. The Uniparty donor-class is loyal only to maintaining their rent-seeking “special” relationship with government. So long as the money keeps coming their way, they could care less about what a leftest government does to the social fabric of the US. Trump threatens that big-time because they know that he knows all about how they work. GO TRUMP!!

        The donor class is not happy. All great organizations must be run bottom up, the big money donors are not in control anymore. Crony capitalists beware your big government benefactors are toast. Trump signing the pledge to support the GOP nominee, what a perfect testament to what is wrong with the GOP. None of the other candidates were required to pledge their loyalty. Now more than ever, Trump. Make America Great Again!

      I’ve said before, and I’m not joking: I can easily imagine that as soon as Trump is elected, he publicly announces that he’s changing his party affiliation to “none”. Will say something like “The president needs to represent ALL Americans, not just those of one party.”

    If Mike Fernandez is backing Jeb, he may as well be backing Hillary. Fernandez can take his toys and go home. His comments remind me of grade school-the lower grades mind you- when a kid doesn’t get their way, they say, “I’m going home.”

    If the GOPe insiders bail on the party nominee they will be encouraging the destruction of the Republican Party. I’m not a big Trump supporter but I wasn’t a Romney supporter either and I voted for him. If Trump is the nominee and they shaft him I doubt that I would ever work up enough interest in voting for their future Dem-lite candidates.

    A ‘quote/unquote’ Conservative Republican says he’ll support Hillary before Trump… Then it’s OBVIOUS he’s NOT a Conservative Republican. At BEST, he’s a moderate Republican, or he wouldn’t have chosen Jebby as the candidate to back in the first place.
