Brent Bozell: Conservative May Capture GOP Presidential Nod

By    |   Wednesday, 14 Jan 2015 02:05 PM

The moderate Republicans mulling a run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination may cancel themselves out — with a true conservative grabbing the prize, says Brent Bozell, chairman of ForAmerica.

"You may have a circular firing squad of moderates because you're going to have [former Florida Gov. Jeb] Bush, you’re going to have [former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt] Romney, I'm sure you're going to have [New Jersey Gov. Chris] Christie and maybe more," Bozell said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"They're all going to be vying for the same big money that's out there and believe me they will have the Chamber of Commerce, big, big money to play with. They may just take each other out in a pretty dramatic fashion.

"I would say to conservatives out there, don't be at all intimidated by this, because they can have all the money in the world, but this may not get them very far."

Bozell, whose group promotes conservative values and limited government, also said he is not confident the new GOP-led Congress will make good on its promises to fight the White House.

"In the 38 months that John Boehner has been the speaker of the House, the United States debt has gone up exactly $3.8 trillion; that's a mathematical reality," Bozell said.

"You can blame Barack Obama all day long for amnesty, for Obamacare, for all the other crazy spending policies — except the Republicans are signing the check.

"Every single time something comes up where the Republicans have the opportunity to say no, we're not going to fund that atrocity, John Boehner takes out his pen and signs it up to the president for his approval."

He said Boehner must stop "playing this game" that he's a fiscal conservative, while he does "everything that Barack Obama's doing."

He also criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for flip-flopping on his political ideology.

"What did Mitch McConnell say right after he won, that … the country wants Washington to govern from the center?" Bozell said.

"That's not what he said when he ran for office. He said he was a conservative and he said the country wanted conservative solutions, but this is the game they play …

"You run for office you run as a conservative, when you come to Washington the conservatives can go to hell, you're now a centrist."
