Former Republican presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham endorsed Jeb Bush for president, saying he believes the former Florida governor has the backs of America's troops.
"I have concluded without any hesitation, without any doubt that Jeb Bush is ready on day one to be a commander in chief worthy of the sacrifices of the one percent fighting this war," Graham said from a North Charleston hotel Friday morning, with Bush at his side.
Where were you when Jeb won the nomination?
Oh, and before Trump shills say this doesn't matter - http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/30/upshot/2016-endorsements-how-and-why-they-matter.html?_r=0
endorsements = nomination
Always have, and always will.
Trump status = btfo
Looks like the hare got caught snoozing again....
“He hasn’t tried to get ahead in a contested primary by embracing demagoguery,” Mr. Graham said. “Here’s what I’m convinced of more than anything else: that if Jeb Bush is president of the United States, he will put the country ahead of the party.”
“Don’t run for president as a Republican if you’re going to double down on insanity,” he said. “Ted [Cruz]: You were for legal status. Donald Trump: What you’re talking about makes no sense, it hurts the nation as a whole, and it doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of ever being passed.”
“Right now, immigration is red hot,” Mr. Graham said. “Everybody is running for the cover of not being clear. The thing I like most about Jeb — he hasn’t run away. If he’s president, he’s going to bring us together.”
Trump and Cruz both BTFO!
Should have put your money on the turtle, /pol/.
Me neither, it's like the South Park episode where Stan's dad can't stop being sarcastic
>Don’t run for president as a Republican if you’re going to double down on insanity
I'm not sure why Jeb ran as a republican then, considering he can't double down on anything.
>implying the title doesn't accurately describe what is happening to jeb in a figurative sense
Trump wants us to be properly imbursed as a nation for our efforts around the world, instead of being the world's police and literally getting nothing in return.
I wouldn't mind if we got paid/experienced a net gain from helping out other countries whether is be in weapons or boots on the ground. The problem is we go into these countries, spend billions of dollars and come out with dead soldiers and billions in debt. Which like I said, is the case because greedy contractors and politicians are actually profiting massively from out military exhibitions and spending. Trump wants the nation as a whole to benefit from our foreign exhibitions.
Wow anon, thank you for pointing out that the headline about jeb fading away like Marty McFly in BttF was from a satirical site.
I assume you are a turbo autist, as you apparently cannot understand humor.
Does anyone give a fuck what that barely closeted faggot from South Carolina thinks?
The fact a state as dark red as South Carolina keeps sending that peter puffer back to the Senate never fails to disappoint me.
Then again Tennessee's senators suck too. Too many old white yellow-dog Democrats back in the woods, and the effects of the Communist Party training school for farm organizing at Monteagle, TN.
>yfw brian henerson was jeb all along
Yeah, well, such is the collapse of the United States...let's all just calm the fuck down and enjoy it, right?
/pol/, never, ever, ever change...ever...literally dying over here...in tears
Is it satire? Is it not satire?
I would hope that most of these faggots realize that if every other candidate in the GOP race dropped out today and pledged their support to Cruz, all of that support COMBINED still wouldn't be enough to overtake trump
Get a grip, fags
Somewhere Trump is drinking the tears of RINOs.
Just let Jeb go, let him fade away with some dignity
>up 30% from 5%
>now at 6.5%
Wow! I'm ready for ¡Yeb!
You do know that /pol/ rigged that poll, right?
And the democrats pose as Trump voters because they know he is the easy win. Jeb would demolish HRC, but Trump loses to all Democrats in head to heads.
You're awfully desperate to try and convince us that your candidate is still in the running.
Enjoy watching your favorite politician at the kiddies table next time (if he hasn't dropped out in shame beforehand).
Trump is stumped though.
Cruz sunk Trump with the birther argument.
America will NOT vote for a birther.
In 2012 Trump dropped out after doing his speeches because Obama shamed him by releasing his birth certificate.
>Obama born Kenya
>Get out of my country
*Obama releases BC*
>Trump drops out immediately
Are you retarded or something?
>Unique daily visitors - 1,920,669
>analytic shows monthly visitors at 1,920,669
You need some more copypasta for your official denials there. Might want to pass that up the chain to your manager -- in this case Yeb! himself because no one else would be foolish enough to kill their political careers working under the king of guac.
Just like your unhinged idol, you fabricate lies to force your hatred.
Want to post to blatantly false racist crime statistics?
How about you post some fake accusations of dance parties on 9/11?
I'd think that the gay community would find that very offensive and I don't think your employer would appreciate you alienating a nice chunk of the voter base with your callous disregard for facts or the feelings of others.
Jeb's the least likeable candidate. That's why he's losing. 538 pointed this out in October.
im going to go back in time. and back when Jeb was in high school.
and im going to get him to Punch Biff and become a man.
your ID sounds like a sickness you get from eating too much fatty, greasy food
So when a fact is inconvenient you'll just totally ignore it, and you default to accusations of racism when called out on it? And you wonder why Yeb! is polling so poorly?
Please tell me that you're still in training, and this is your first assignment. Because right now I just feel sad that this is the level of work he gets after having spent millions of dollars on his campaign -- more than almost every other candidate so far.
More bashing, more accusations, and yet still no proof of anything.
Well -- you've said I'm both racist and a Trump supporter based on my posts here. Please, feel free to quote one of them so I can respond appropriately.
You do know that I keep replying to you to keep this thread bumped to the top, so that it's one of the first things that anyone browsing /pol/ sees and all anyone can see right now is a "average joe" Bush supporter continually fail to prove their point.
You claimed I was a Trump supporter and racist, multiple times mind you, and you have yet to address this with any actual proof -- and now you're deflecting. Badly.
Everybody predicted Hillary would win. Betting markets still have their money on Hillary. She's almost certain to win the nomination, and she's reasonably strong against most of the GOP candidates.
Nate Silver has always been a bear on Trump. He seems to think this election is business as usual. He's so certain that Trump won't win, he's beginning to include factors other than polling in his models. Party support helps, but they can't outright rig the polls.
Do you live in Denver? If so, howdy neighbor.
Trump has been securing minority votes all over the country. He is leading with hispanics and african americans in a few states, and I expect his momentum will continue.
Only a Trump supporter would bash Jeb like you guys do.
And now you're calling me a buffoon and you still haven't quoted anything that I've said to portray myself as such. You still deflect, and you refuse to acknowledge anything that you can't insult away.
You, sir, are a liar, and a terrible representative for your candidate.
Nice, I'm up in FoCo.
Here is one source related to Jeb:
By the way, I maintain that Jeb is a great guy all around, extremely nice and probably extremely talented as a politician. I just don't think he's the president we need right now.
so some old-time republicant hacks are endorsing one of their own. how remarkable.
the republican party elite is fighting for their political lives. trump has them on the ropes and they're finally circling the wagons.
i don't like trump as a presidential candidate but i LOVE what he's doing with the odious, old-time, republican cabal.
STAND UP FOR FREEDOM AND LIBERTY!!! STAND WITH RAND!!!
Thanks for that link.
I have my doubts too, and stay open minded.
I may even be a Trump supporter if not for the abrasive behavior towards me from the majority of Trump supporters here.
I don't like the way Trump wants to forcibly take oil from arabs. I feel we need to be moving away from oil if anything.
I think you have balls for supporting Jeb, and I think you should always stick to your convictions.
It's a hard time to be a Jeb supporter on the internet because there is so much fuel for humor from is escapades and clashes with Trump.
Jeb needs support from guys like you. He has excellent character, but the world is filled with shady characters right now. How can you expect someone so nice to go up against the most ruthless leaders this world has to offer?
Doesn't mean he's a bad candidate, and doesn't mean he wouldn't make a good president in a different era. You should stick to your guns, I'm sure he would appreciate it.
RALLY ROUND THE FAMILY
WITH A POCKET FULL OF SHELLS
>1%er endorses a 3%er
>40%+er blown the fuck out
I can smell the desperation from op.
So the guy with 1% in the polls gave his endorsement to the guy with 3%? Well this changes everything.
Kek love when politically uninformed idiots have no idea who the players are. Graham is a RINO, hated by almost all conservatives. This is a death blow to Jeb. Dig a hole
"I'm queer. I'm gay. I'm homosexual. I'm a poof, I'm a poofter, I'm a ponce. I'm a bumboy, battyboy, backside artist, bugger. I'm bent. I am that arsebandit. I lift those shirts. I'm a faggot-ass, fudge-packing, shit-stabbing uphill gardener. I dine at the downstairs restaurant; I dance at the other end of the ballroom. I'm Moses and the parting of the red cheeks. I fuck and I’m fucked. I suck and I’m sucked. I rim them and wank them, and every single man's had the fucking time of his life."
Why is Graham endorsing him? Are they both closet gays?
Oh shit, it's over guys.
Jeb just got Lindsey's 0%
Jeb just sucks dude. He supports the Iraq War decision to this day. He comes off as someone just looking to continue a mediocre political dynasty at the expense of the people
Miss Lindsey endorses the Jeb-ster!
What a giggle. Jeb must be desperate.
That will only make Trump happier.
Lindsey Graham, top establishment shill and political laughingstock, a huge political endorsement?
Kek, this really must be a joke.
Just so you know, basically every candidate that drops out will likely endorse Jeb.
All the candidates will run and pick up a few delegates here and there, then pledge them all to Jeb on the convention floor.
Is that what they really do there, Mr Jones?
Trump only has a realistic chance of winning if he gets more than 50%, or somehow gets Cruz or Carson on his side to pledge him some delegates.
The Republican establishment is working right now to change the rules, such that if it were to come down to a brokered convention they could stop a Trump nomination
