RNC Head Reince Priebus Warns of ‘Consequences’ for Those Who Break GOP Pledge
Young Conservatives ^ | 9/10/2016 | John S. Roberts

Posted on 09/10/2016 6:42:05 PM PDT by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain

A lot of people aren’t happy that some Republicans have broken their pledge to the GOP.

One of those people is RNC head Reince Priebus.

Reince is warning those who don’t support Donald Trump they’ll need to watch their backs in the future.

Meaning, we’re not going to help you when your election rolls around if you turn your back on us now.

Makes sense – for the most part.

From Newsmax:

Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus says there may be “consequences” in the future for GOP presidential primary candidates who don’t stick with their pledge to support the party’s nominee.

In an interview Friday night on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Priebus agreed that the refusal of four primary contenders to back Trump — Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Jeb Bush, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — was maddening.

“It was a pledge, and it wasn’t just a pledge,” he said. “In some cases, it was a data exchange agreement where the candidates received valuable data and information, and in exchange for that information they agreed to support the nominee, whomever he or she was.”

Priebus added, “And so I think they should honor the pledges, and I think that our state chairman and our committee people on the committee are going to review this situation, and there may be consequences in the future.”

This is why Democrats win.

Republicans can’t seem to agree anymore.

Want to know why?

Because most Republicans are no longer conservatives. They are moderates.

Case solved.

Likely TBD. For me, the important item is Priebus issued a warning. Cruz is already bleeding political support for his next career move. Donald is looking good. I guess we get to see who is just plain stupid and who is really, really stupid.

Sort of Stupider and Stupidest.

If Trump were like McCain, Clinton, or other terrible politicians, I might grant a pass.

Trump, by now, is clearly not an evil Leftist.

There is no excuse for not supporting him.

Hillary is perhaps even worse than Bath-House Barrie.

Anyone that can’t see that Trump is better comparatively, needs to drop out of politics and political discussions. They don’t have the tools...

Even little Priebus knows what will happen to the Repub Party support (voters) if they screw the pooch here.

I seem to recall 11 GOP presidential candidates pledging to support the winning nominee. Of course at that time, none of them dreamed that Trump would be the winner. Oops. It’s an inconvenient truth that the neverTrumpers would prefer that we forget. Pledge? What pledge? Never happened.

For the party chairman, unity is more important than ideology. If a presidential candidate loses an election because of massive defections among its elected leaders, then the party is basically out of business and has no credibility in future fund-raising, endorsements, etc.

Well it’s about time. However, until I see all RNC funds pulled from Cruz’s campaign, I won’t believe it. That prick had an opportunity to unite this party behind Trump and he wiffed, feeding the never trump movement. He needs to be exiled.

Priebus isn’t going to do anything about the recalcitrant republicans.

I’m all in for Trump, but even he isn’t a full on conservative in many ways. What I like is that he is an American nationalist. That has to come first above all else.

That is what the GOP is not, including faux conservatives like Cruz. He, Bush, and the others put the world community above our needs.

Mr. Cruz and his butt buddy Mr. Graham had better stop their bedroom romps, put their big boy pants back on, and come outside to face the music like they said they would.

I have been writing on all solicitations from the RNC that we won’t send them money until they get the RINOs on board the Trump Train. If Donald Trump wants to share the money with them, that is fine with us, but they are going to have to ask daddy for their allowance until they grow up.

Because most Republicans are no longer conservatives. They are moderates.

Is there a possibility that this is not a morphing to "moderate" but a failure of so-called conservatives, acting as RINOs, bending to the will of leftists, and us remaining conservatives simply wanted a sea-change where Trump was the best answer in this cycle?

There's no question that Trump has been all over the political map over the last few decades. For better or for worse, that isn't uncommon among successful businessmen.

More than anything else, I think voters like Trump simply because he's different than the A-holes we've come to accept as presidential candidates in recent decades.

...

They’re neither. They’re crooks, which is why they’d rather see Hillary win.
