Radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, responding to recent news that Donald Trump signed an RNC loyalty pledge promising not to run as a third party candidate for President, hammered the GOP and suggested they make their own pledge.
Limbaugh scoffed at the Trump signing, saying there was really no concern with him running third party, because “third parties don’t win” and Trump “wants to win.”
The talk show host then said that, perhaps the GOP itself should consider signing a pledge to their voters. With a long history of making promises to battle President Obama and the Democrats on such things as spending, Obamacare, illegal immigration, etc., only to back down from a fight, the Republican party may indeed want to consider taking an oath for their voters.
Via Rush Limbaugh:
What is this, loyalty oaths? How about the Republican Party signing a loyalty oath to the voters? If there needs to be a royalty oath here, it seems to me that the Republican Party elected officials would finally get around to signing one that they are gonna be loyal to their cause and loyal to their voters.
Now, I’m not trying to stir things up here, but what is this? They say this is an attempt to entrap Trump and get him to promise he won’t go third party and all that. I don’t know if these people think this looks good or they’re running some kind of a scam or trick on Trump. But as usual, they’re overthinking this, because they’re discombobulated.
Limbaugh’s web site even provided a copy of what the pledge to voters might actually look like…
If it was so crucial for Trump to sign his third party oath to help rein him in on his promises, then it would be equally as critical for an establishment Republican party to pledge loyalty to their own voters after years of selling them a bill of goods.
Don’t you agree?
