On his program Wednesday, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh continued his assault of former governor Jeb Bush, saying the potential GOP 2016 candidate and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would form “the perfect ticket.”
“The ideal, the perfect ticket for the 2016 election: Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush,” said Limbaugh on his broadcast Wednesday. “Now they can figure out who’s on top of the ticket on their own.”
“When you compare their positions – Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush – on the key important issues, they are two peas in the same pod.”
“And by the way Barbara Bush loves Bill Clinton. Says so publicly,” said Limbaugh. “The Clinton family and the Bush family are very tight. They are very close. There is never a negative or critical word uttered by a Bush of a Clinton or of a Bush by a Clinton.”
“This is made to order, the way both parties want amnesty – Jeb Bush wants it, Hillary wants it. Both parties want to win the nomination – Hillary by running away from the Democrat base, Jeb by running away from the Republican base. This is an ideal combination,” the popular conservative radio host said. “When it comes to Obamacare, national health care, both parties care about their donors more than their voters. Both parties have the exact same donor class.”
Rush slammed the possibility of a third Bush running for president, saying he would be making a “sacrificial run” to keep a tea party candidate away from the GOP nomination.
“This is a ticket made in heaven. I can’t recall a time in my life when a presidential and vice presidential candidate are so close to each other on the issues,” Limbaugh said emphatically.
“Where if one of them was unable to serve, we wouldn’t know the difference if the vice president had to take office. If Jeb’s at the top of the ticket and they win, and something to him happens and Hillary has to take over, nobody would know the difference. Same token, Hillary’s elected president, Jeb’s veep, Hillary can’t make it for some reason, her husband being the white Bill Cosby might come up, you never know,” said a rambling Rush. “Jeb becoming president, nobody would never know the difference. They wouldn’t skip a beat.”
“The moderates in the Republican Party are scared to death of Hillary Clinton? They’re petrified. What better way to deal with the fear of Hillary Clinton than to put her on your ticket?! The Democrats probably have the same kind of fear as the Bushes,” Limbaugh concluded. “Why not accomplish both? Bipartisanship, crossing the aisle, united government, no more gridlock, key agreement on all the important issues that people vote on. Clinton, Bush 2016, you choose the top.”
