Limbaugh: What If Jeb Bush Is Trying To Disqualify Himself on Purpose?

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Let me run a theory by you. A friend of mine said, "What if Jeb really doesn't want this and is just saying things that guarantee he won't win, such as, 'They're not coming here for anything other than love'?"

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: I've got a guy who thinks that Jeb is trying to disqualify himself right now just 'cause he doesn't want to run and he doesn't want all these people trying to draft him. So he'll say something that he knows is not gonna be accepted and get it out of the way. What about that theory?

CALLER: The purpose of that, sir, is because they're pressuring him to be the anointed candidate?

RUSH: I know. My answer to that is, "If you don't want to run, just say so, rather than disqualify yourself." I mean, yeah, I think Tea Party... We know that four million Republicans in 2012 stayed home. Stop and think. I still can't believe it. I mean, I believe it, but in 2012, four million Republicans stayed home for the very reason she's talking about here.
