As I recall, there were initially 17 Republican Party candidates running for president in the primary election contests leading to the GOP 2016 nomination. Every one of them, including Jeb Bush, the favorite in the pack at the time, signed a public pledge with great fanfare solemnly promising to support the eventual nominee no matter who it was.
The sole reason for this pledge scheme was to box Donald Trump into a position wherein he would remain loyal to the party and not be likely to bolt to a third party candidacy should he not get the GOP nomination. Trump was reluctant to sign it at first because he was wary of the GOP treating him unfairly, but he caved in to the pressure after all the other candidates promised to support him if he became the eventual nominee.
Well, now we have the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, the man who handily beat the tar out of all 16 of his rivals – especially Jeb Bush and Lindsay Graham -- and it happens to be none other than Donald Trump.
But now Jeb Bush and Lindsay Graham have indicated publically that they are not going to honor their pledge. They’re not going to support their Republican Party’s nominee for President, and not only that, they’re providing ammunition to the Democrat candidate with which to defeat their own Party.
It just shows us the kind of men they are – dishonest, treasonous and pathetic sore losers. They would rather have the Democrats win the 2016 presidential election and give us four more years of the Obama socialism nightmare than to suck up their pride and be loyal Republicans.
The entire Bush family, including GHWB, the elder, and GWB the incompetent, have shown themselves to be pathetic whining, and sulking sore losers. “Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character required to lead the nation… He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy,” said Jeb.
To put this matter into proper perspective, consider this: even Dick Cheney, the Darth Vader of the GOP, is supporting Donald Trump, because he has always supported the GOP nominee. He’s the last Republican I would have expected to support Donald Trump.
So it looks like even the worst of Republicans are not going to be… sore losers.
