A disappointed Rush Limbaugh was disgusted with RINOs John Kasich and Jeb Bush for moving to the political left to pander for votes in the last days before the New Hampshire primary.
“And I’ve said this before. I opened the program with it yesterday. When I saw what Jeb and Kasich were doing in New Hampshire at the last minute in order to get votes,” Limbaugh, the leading talk show host in America told a caller on Wednesday. “They were going left as fast as Deion Sanders can backpedal. They were moving left faster than anybody I’ve ever seen go left,” Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh then explained to the caller that there is one candidate in the race who you never have to worry that he’ll flip on his conservative principles — that there is one candidate who is “the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan,” and that “there’s nobody closer.”
And I opened the program yesterday saying, “You will never, ever have to worry about that with Ted Cruz.” And then I expanded on it.
And let me say one thing: If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz, because you are exactly right: This is the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan.
In terms of doctrinaire, understandable, articulated, implementable conservatism, there’s nobody closer.
Although Ronald Reagan is now considered one of the best — if not the best — presidents in U.S. history, he was hated by the press, as well as by the political elites in both parties, as is Ted Cruz.
Conservatives have long hoped and prayed for “the next Ronald Reagan,” a principled leader who will stand up to the political ruling class, restore constitutionally-limited government, and reignite American values.
According to Rush Limbaugh, we needn’t look any further.
