Skip to comments.Report: Wall Street Republicans Prefer Hillary over Ted Cruz, Rand Paul
Posted on 04/28/2014 5:34:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The permanent political class and their donors think a Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton battle in 2016 would be a win-win scenario, and many Republican Wall Street donors would rather have Clinton in the White House than Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
According to a Politico report, "the darkest secret in the big money world of the Republican coastal elite is that the most palatable alternative to a nominee such as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas or Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky would be Clinton."
If it turns out to be Jeb versus Hillary we would love that and either outcome would be fine, a Wall Street donor told the publication. We could live with either one. Jeb versus Joe Biden would also be fine. Its Rand Paul or Ted Cruz versus someone like Elizabeth Warren that would be everybodys worst nightmare.
Fearing "heavy blowback," no one would go on the record in an article that tries to set the establishment narrative that Jeb Bush should get support because Hillary would have an easier road to the White House if a conservative candidate won the nomination in 2016.
Other Wall Street Republicans have said there would not be any "panic" with Hillary Clinton...

Why would they oppose Rand Paul, he just wholeheartedly endorsed susan collins.
Big money and big business are subsidized by big government and don't want to see it dissolved - to h*ll with the American People or America for that matter.
A lot of consultants are going to earn their retirements raising money from this crowd, and in the end the Great Boogie won't be elected President regardless.
But 2DV! We gotta vote Republican no matter what! Don’t we? CuZ they are worse than the dems aren’t they?
I may be getting too old, but I was raised to believe one should oppose big government, big labor and big business.
Tell his fanboys here.
I don’t trust ANY politicians OR Media these days. No one knows where any of this info is coming from. Could be made up out of whole cloth. Feh!
Can you believe these $#*+heads?

The 2016 primaries might turn out to be the only time I vote that year. If Bush (sequel 3), a re-Romney, NJ Rat-lite, or some other RINO is what come out from under the GOP rock, they can stick their candidate.
I've voted in my last election. I hope the Rats establish a monarchy. At the least, a dynasty.
TRAITORS, which means that if WE DON’T END UP WITH A CONSERVTIVE, why should I support their nominee? It worked out so well with John McCain, Mitt Romney, the elder President Bush and Bob Dole?..
It's not beyond belief
Malaria Obama (2041-2049)
Some Republicans are rich, but there is no guarantee that they are smart. This article proves it.
Time to do a bitchslap on RICH RINO REPUBLICANS. Attack them as the Left does. Call them out as selfish, greedy Wall Street pigs (hattip to the Occupy Movement though they had no idea what they were saying).
Let’s show the American public that we stand for the American Public, not Wall Street fatcats from either party.
Time to clean house from stem to stern (or is it bow to stern). We can’t trust “suits” period. They are too invested in their own selfish welfare instead of trying to help save our country.
then again,aren’t registered Republicans about 28% of the voting population while close to 45% to 60% are conservatives and independents?,if Jeb decides to Run,we all know he will never get passed Paul and Cruz in any of the first primaries.Can u imagine Jeb winding up in 6th/7th place after the first primary? U think he will still stay in the race?
“Its Rand Paul or Ted Cruz versus someone like Elizabeth Warren that would be everybodys worst nightmare”
“Its Rand Paul or Ted Cruz versus someone like Elizabeth Warren that would be “The Protection Racket’s” worst nightmare”
Corporate Welfare junkies.
I’m not a fan of Jeb, but what makes you think he would do worse than Romney did in the primaries? Didn’t Romney win 3 of the first 5? Won’t Jeb have the same huge financial backing?
I’m glad the battle is finally out in the open.
its time for us to fight and win.
Exactly. Today we have two main parties: The Democrats and Democrats-lite which is exactly why Cruz, or Palin or any other conservative who wants to run should run as an independent because if they seek the Democrat-lite nomination they will never get it. The Democrat-lites will destroy them just like they did with Herman Cain so they can prop up their Democrat-lite candidate who will be just like the Democrat candidate.
Fearing "heavy blowback," no one would go on the record...
These stupid asses could very well be looking at Paris, 1793 the way things are going. Didn’t work out so well for the elite then, either.
This article is 100% horsesh1t. Just read it. It's all gossip and hearsay. As if wallstreet was just a handful of people.
Conservatives are irate but the RNC doesn't care one way or the other.
Screw it. I'm voting green party. Throwing a vote away is throwing a vote away, regardless.
Ted Cruz is a Princeton/Harvard educated lawyer. He may be a black sheep, but he’s a member of the tribe.
Hey Bob, the bus to the re-education camp will be by in about 30 minutes. Your name came up on the list...
Yes, this should come as no surprise to anyone. During the last 2 elections, the GOPe threw senate seats to the dems. They did this so the tea party candidates would not reach critical mass and threaten their power & influence in the party. They feared that the tea partiers would enact real reform. They did this thru operatives and by withholding money from tea party candidates who had a real chance of winning. They even supported that write-in wench from Alaska (Murkowski) even tho she lost the primary.
So how does it make you feel that they would rather lose the senate than tolerate more conservatives?
Id rather see Jeb run For Governor as an independent to keep Charlie Crisp from winning! I can’t stand Crisp!
So does John McCain. If a conservative would get the nomination, the GOP DC crowd will do what Richard Lugar did to Murdock in the Indiana Senate race.
They will sabotage the nominee out of pure spite.
Easy to understand if you recall Hillary’s brilliance as a commodity trader years ago....../s off.
You are undoubtedly smarter than you look.
Your post made a significant point. The elections of 2014 and 2016 are going to be the biggest dis-information campaigns in the history of the world.
Unfortunately, most of the little people will never suspect that they are being fed a pile of c**p while being told that they are eating crumpets...
What I love is the meme that Hillary is one of the world’s strongest and most courageous statesmen ever.
Tell you what, when that shoe whizzed by her when she was on that stage, she curled up into a tiny little ball and looked like someone’s 95 year old great grandma. If elected in 2016, she will die in office of ill health before the end of her first term. Of course, we the little people will be told that she fell and bumped her head and that she will be ok in just a few weeks. Meanwhile Ol’ Bill
will end up with that third term he always dreamed of.
Yeah, it’s unreal, a new party has to be formed and fast. I mean look at the last two candidates they picked, McCain and then Romney and then they wonder why they lost. Well when they are pushing the same exact kind of candidate as the Democrats, people tend to look down upon that, as if Republicans have gone insane. Why even bother calling themselves Republicans? The gig is up, the scam is exposed, everybody knows they are pushing another version of the same party. Last election worked out real well didn’t it? “Oh Obamacare? Well I invented that in Massachusetts!” Say what?? It was a choice between the leftist candidate or the leftist candidate.
US as quickly becoming neo patrimonial state. I believe the election of Hillary Clinton would cement the ‘Change’.
The parties are interwoven as is the private and public sectors. This is the ‘Public/Private partnership’ they promote. Until you can control or at least have oversight of the bureaucracies, like IRS,EPA,BLM, DOT, & NSA, we’re toast.
Is anyone really surprised about this? The Dems have been Wall Street’s best friends over the past 20 years!
Palin, Cruz, or LOSE.
You said it.
> Bob Schieffer: Romney May Run if Jeb Bush Doesnt
AGH! That’s the worst thing I’ve heard all day, and I’ve had a rough day.
I will make up my own mind with absolutely no input from Politico no matter what "report" they dream up.
So far, I like Cruz/Paul or vice versa.
Synchronize your metaphors!
I had hoped that the GOP would see the light once they hit rock bottom. That was 2 elections ago. They just started digging and have been ever since.
I’d be happy to see Mike Pence enter the race.. if he, Cruz or any other conservative gains the nomination, the campaign could be run as a populist, anti-Wall Street push.
The Grand Old Party is not so grand anymore.
It is full of people that could give a damn less about the freedoms that has made it strong.
They would rather sell it down the river for the like of the Hilderbeast instead of doing what is morally right.
To hell with these people and the GOPe. Bring on a third party candidate, morally and constitutionally grounded.
