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?
