Amid Trump momentum, Jeb Bush to meet with rest of Republican field




Former Republican hopeful Jeb Bush will meet with Marco Rubio today and with Ted Cruz and John Kasich tomorrow ahead of Thursday night’s Republican debate in Miami, multiple organizations reported. Why? A Bush spokeswoman “wouldn’t say where or when the meetings will take place other than to confirm they will occur,” the Washington Post


Godfather Bush to meet all anti-trump Republican candidates. This is starting to be a very hilarious show.

Unless they plan on bringing back Jeb Bush and giving him the majority of delegates.

I'm surprised Louie Gohmert isn't one of the Republican hopefuls at this point, he'd fit right in.

I've dealt with that Douchebag personally. He can kick rocks. Threw a huge hissy fit in front of his mom and girlfriend when I wouldn't let him on the Air Force Academy...

Rubio will be there, so at least Bush will have one person present who looks up to him. (assuming they meet standing up, I suppose.)

Be hilarious if Cruz agrees to join some triune candidate-head of himself, Rubio, and Kasich, all unified to drop bombs on Trump, only to swerve them and lay bare the details of the meeting in his opening statement. Funny thing is that would actually be more beneficial to Cruz than it would to even Trump... it would show Cruz has a massive set and is willing to let them swing freely in defiance of party higher ups (which is basically why so many of us support Trump.)

Bush looks like a sore loser.

His poor performance has to do with him under estimating just how much animosity there still is for the Bush name.

There's this idea that if there's a brokered convention, Jeb will be put back on the ballot, maybe along with Romney if people can't choose between Uncle Ted and Drumph.

Which is hilarious mind you, but it could happen I suppose. Maybe Jeb is trying to test the waters.

If they seriously tried to pull a brokered convention. It would be the end of the GOP.

They still don't get it.

Support for Trump has been sending them a huge message, and they still refuse to read it.

The can't be. That's the real kicker to all of this. Four years ago, in a direct effort to ensure that Ron Paul couldn't sneak into a brokered nomination, the RNC passed a rule that states the nominee MUST win at least 8 state primaries outright.
Rule 40
www.scribd.com...

.(b) Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation ofthe name of that candidate for nomination. Notwithstanding any other provisions of these rules or any rule of the House ofRepresentatives, to demonstrate the support required of this paragraph a certificate evidencing the affirmative written support ofthe required number of permanently seated delegates from each of the eight (8) or more states shall have been submitted to thesecretary of the convention not later than one (1) hour prior to the placing of the names of candidates for nomination pursuant tothis rule and the established order of business


There will be no Bush, no Romney, no Rubio on the 2016 GOP ticket, and they did it to themselves because they were afraid of an old libertarian.


Rule 40 seals the deal here... it will be either Trump or Ted Cruz.

NOPE. Not according to the their lawyer....

So I was reading today....

Source


“In fact, that's not a rule,” former RNC lawyer Ben Ginsberg — the party's preeminent election law expert — told MSNBC early Wednesday morning. “That's part of what's called the temporary rules. Each convention has to pass for itself the number of states that put a candidate's name in nomination.”

In 2012, revisions to Rule 40 raised the required number of states from five to eight, but no number is in effect for the Cleveland convention, according to Ginsberg. “The 2016 convention and its rules committee has to make that decision,” he said. “So there is no eight-state rule in effect right now for the next convention.”
“The 2016 convention can make that number one, eight, 18, 28 or 58, if it wishes,” he added.


I know it sounds ridiculous, but there you have it.

Yeah, Trump's lawyers (or Cruz himself) will crush them like bugs in the court of public opinion on that one. Hell, they will probably take it the distance in a court of law.

Considering Rush Limbaugh, of all people, has made Rule 40 a major talking point, the GOP will do well to hold to following it.

I know, the GOP must be filled with low information politicians, to not see the clear and present signs we the people have been sending them about being fed up with the Lies, deceit and back room deals that went on the last 8 years when they were supposed to be on our side.

We are tired of our Jobs going to foriegn workers and Illegal immigrants, we are sick of our taxes being spent on things and agendas we don't like or want, We are tired of having the cost of food and Gas being artificially inflated by the big business men.

Remember how we were told Gas has gone up so the prices of everything else must go up.

But what happened when gas prices dropped?

You got it, the prices of everything else went up and continues to rise.

Wake up Cruz, Jeb, Rand and the DC establishement, you all had your chance and you blew it. This time we will not take a defeat lying down we will march by the Millions into DC is any shenanigans happen this year.

We the people are Fed UP!
