Steve Forbes Backs Trump, Bashes Rubio
breitbart.com ^ | February 28

Posted on 02/29/2016 4:34:31 AM PST by Helicondelta

Sunday, former GOP presidential candidate Steve Forbes heaped praise on GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s on Sunday radio show “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York.

Forbes speculated union leaders would support Hillary Clinton, but “the rank and file, a big chunk of them are going to go their own way.”

He explained to show host John Catsimatidis, “Trump, even as he criticizes and throws out charges and all that kind of thing, he always ends up on an upbeat note about the USA. People want that, people want to hear that. They’re tired of all this gloom and doom, and ‘the U.S. is going in a trash heap.'”

The magazine publisher then spoke out against the tax plan of Sen. Marco Rubio, calling it “the worst tax plan” of the GOP field.

I suppose you can not call it an “official” endorsement, but Forbes is a power house on economics and a great man to have on your side.

If Cruz wasn’t on the Cheap Labor Express and a gloBULList I’d be on his bandwagon. Rubio is Rush’s full throated cabana boy and is going to get the Establishments money. It will soon be Trump vs Rubio, as Cruz will drop out after Tuesday.

Nice. Forbes was on the RECEIVING END of the GOPe in 1996, but there were some differences between him and Trump.

Back then Forbes was single issue - Flat Tax. He was very good in pushing it, but seemed to putter out when asked about anything else. Forbes also stepped in it when asked whether employer-provided health insurance would be subject to his flat tax. He said something like “yea, I assume so”. That was it for him.

Trump is MUCH SMARTER politically and overall BRILLIANT. He only gets stronger when he appears to step in it.

Does ANY tax plan of Rubio’s matter when he will just bend over to GOPe/Democrat blackmail? The guy has so many nasty secrets in the closet, there is likely one for every month of his first term.

“Steve” Forbes. Another NE liberal Republican who decided he had to pretend to be a conservative in order to run as a GOP candidate for president.

I agree. I've always liked Forbes, and wish he got more traction when he was running.

I trust him, and would bring him into the administration in a heartbeat.

Trump 49% , Charlatan Cruz 15%

HA HA HA ! Go Trump!

In the following video Senator Jeff Sessions says that Trump will STOP TPP ! TPP is the worst thing ever for America and Cruz was instrumental in getting TPA TPP passed:

This is great video of Sessions endorsing Trump in a rally in Alabama!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZ83CvMKYUQ

TPP allows 3rd world countries to flood the USA with hundreds of millions of 3rd world immigrant workers to take away your job(Trade in “services”). There are almost 4 billion 3rd world people in China and India alone , they’re smarter than you and have tech skills . So vote for Cruz if you want to lose your job

Sweet Home Alabama!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLQrbo_i2Zw

I’m In Louisiana but I love Alabama !

Go Trump! It’s killing me I missed that rally which is just a few hours drive . I wanted to shake Trump’s hand.

TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership or Obamatrade is the worst thing ever for America).

So what are you complaining about? You got the western full-throated war hero conservative Dole instead! Yay.

Happens every four years in fact so you should be ecstatic since those "pretend" imperfect conservatives always get pruned out in favor of the GOPe Dope ...

1988 ... Bush41, Robertson, Du Pont

1992 ... Bush41, Buchanan, Perot

1996 ... Dole, Keyes, Buchanan, Forbes, Dornan

2000 ... Bush43, Keyes, Buchanan, Forbes, Bauer, Cain

2004 ... Bush43

2008 ... McCain, Keyes, Huckabee, Hunter, Tancredo, Paul, Thompson

2012 ... Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, Cain

Hooray for our team. We're awesome.

Steve Forbes is a real conservative. To bash him is to display gross ignorance.

Trump need an insider who knows the ins/outs of passing laws in congress. So Session or Pat would be better choices imho

Yep...I'd sure rather have him with me than against me.
