Rush Limbaugh: The GOP Establishment Is Saying ‘Screw You’ To Every Candidate But Mitt Romney

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - Things are getting intense in the race for the Republican nomination. As Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners, “people who are losing close friends over this primary race.” And things don’t appear to be any closer to being settled. To make matters worse, CNN is reporting that there is an awful lot of “whispering” amongst Republicans about another candidate appearing. Limbaugh read that article and agreed that there was a whisper campaign from the GOP establishment, but he saw the message as being much more blunt; if you’re not Mitt Romney, screw you.

“What do you think Santorum and Newt are gonna do? You think they’re just gonna lie down and let the establishment run an open convention and pretend these guys don’t even exist? For those of you who are intrigued by the concept of an open convention, I understand that, but who do you think is gonna run it? The Tea Party isn’t gonna run it. It would be fun. They’re gonna try, no doubt. They would try, but the same Republican establishment that’s gotten the party in this mess is the same bunch of people who would run the open convention.”
