Former Texas Governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has called on fellow presidential contender Donald Trump to withdraw from the race over his remarks about [mc_name name=’Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000303′ ] made at Saturday’s Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa.
Perry is right about one thing, there is a candidate in this race that needs to drop out.
But it isn’t Donald Trump who is at the top of the polls along side Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Florida Gov. Jb Bush.
No the candidate that needs to drop out is someone who is a complete ZERO.
As in garnering ZERO percent of the vote from voters nationwide according to the latest Fox News GOP presidential poll.
As in garnering ZERO in the most recent Suffolk University poll for the first in the nation primary state of New Hampshire.
And is getting a big fat whopping ZERO in the latest Monmouth University poll for the nation’s first presidential vote casting in the Iowa caucuses.
That person who is getting no support from anyone, anywhere for his presidential ambitions isn’t some unknown figure to people who follow politics.
This candidate has been a United States Senator for several terms now and before that was a member of the House of Representatives and a key player in the impeachment of Bill Clinton.
This candidate has over the years appeared on TV, radio, print, and any other form of media as a statesman(so called) on matters of national security and foreign policy and has been a leading advocate for “comprehensive amnesty”.
This candidate is in good standing with the Republican parties establishment and has regularly done what float the boat of the DC ruling class namely attacking conservatives and the Tea Party and their star politicians([mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’C001098′ ] and [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ]).
Yet despite all of that NO ONE is supporting poor Lindsey Graham.
That is probably for good reason.
The 2016 GOP presidential contest is more and more looking like one where the Republican party WILL nominate a conservative to be President over the really weak(but flush with money) candidacy of Jeb Bush, the chosen candidate of the GOP establishment. The establishment isn’t getting behind Chris Christie, or John Kasich, and clearly not Grahamnesty.
With some 16 declared candidates heading into the first debate in August a little trimming of the deadwood before then wouldn’t hurt, which means Mr. ZERO Lindsey Graham should, no must, drop out.
The voters are speaking Goober, and they want someone else to be the parties nominee, not you.
