Is Hillary Clinton the best way to ensure the Democrats LOSE? Rush Limbaugh thinks so.
Rush Limbaugh isnâ€™t only threatening to support Hillary Clinton as a sour grapes reaction. He sincerely believes that if Obama gets the nomination, the Republicans are in big trouble. If Hillary gets it, the Republicans will unite in their single agreed on desire- that the Clintons NOT return to the Whitehouse.
Rush Limbaugh’s exact words, on February 7, 2008, during his radio show:
I can’t wait ’til the Drive-Bys get hold of my thought, my consideration of helping Hillary raise money. They’ll miss the reason. They’ll just publicize, “Limbaugh is so upset at Romney getting out, he’s thinking of raising money for Hillary, period.
But the reason for raising money for Hillary is because that apparently my party is relying on fear and loathing of Hillary to get the nomination, to unite Republicans, who are, some of them, off the reservation. The Republicans do not seem to be relying on leadership in their party to unite the party. They seem to be relying on all these external things, nobody is going to vote for Hillary, negative turnout factor. What if she’s not the nominee? We’ve got make sure she’s the nominee if the Republican Party is to be unified. What more loyal thing could I do than to run a fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton? You watch, though, you watch how that will be questioned.
And on Feb. 6th Rush Limbough said: If Obama is the nominee, we are doomed, and you should get ready and prepared for it now.
Clearly, Rush Limbaugh believes what many, many others have stated: That the only way the various factions of the Republican party will join together and rally for the Republican candidate is if the Democratic candidate is Hillary Clinton.
While Hillary is arguing that she is the strongest Candidate to take on McCain, there is growin sentiment in both parties that the opposite may in fact materialize. If she is at the head of the Democratic ticket, the Republicans are much more likely to win.Â And, as Rush so eloquently put it, â€œIf Obama is the nonimnee, [Republicans] are doomedâ€.
