And Rush saying on air, what his conservative audience niche, wants to hear.

Namely, "we're okay, you're not."

The idea isn't entirely unreasonable.  After all, if the democrats could convince the republicans that they were going to face hilary in 2016, then the republicans would adopt a whole suite of tactics and strategies aimed at exploiting her weaknesses and defending against her claims, which would all be for naught if they ended up nominating someone entirely different after the point at which it becomes too hard for the republicans to really shift gears and start dealing with whomever the actual candidate ends up being.

Rush is talking to his choir - they want a Tea Party candidate, and they'll do everything necessary to disparage the establishment wing of the party.
But if the GOP doesn't run a positive campaign in 2016 - that is, with an agenda of what they want to accomplish - instead of just running against the weaknesses of whichever dim is their candidate, then maybe they deserve to lose. it shouldn't matter who the dim candidate is. The GOP needs a platform.

I don't really care if the 2016 Presidential candidate is Tea Party or establishment. I care about the platform. It had better address nat'l security, jobs, whatever is left of 0bamacare, and controlling entitlements. And whatever else is a hot button in 2016. People will have had 8 years to see what happens when they think Presidential elections are equivalent to voting for American Idol, and if they're not yet ready for substantial thought, then we're doomed anyway.

Rush is still talking to an American Idol audience.

I think more simply, the states would hold GOP primaries, somebody would win, and that would be that.

No tactics and strategies.

Rush has better material when Republicans are out of office, which they have been for the majority of his career.

His followers are unhapopy and he can stir them up all the more. Same for Mark "the screamer" Levin.
