George H.W. Bush calls Mitt Romney ‘the best choice’ in 2012 campaign
Yahoo ^ | 12/22/11 | Holly Bailey -The Ticket

Mitt Romney has picked up a major, if still unofficial, endorsement in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Former President George H.W. Bush told the Houston Chronicle he believes Romney is the best candidate in the race—though he stopped short of officially endorsing his 2012 bid.

"I think Romney is the best choice for us," Bush told the Houston Chronicle. "I like Perry, but he doesn't seem to be going anywhere; he's not surging forward."

The ex-president, who is personally close to Romney, praised the former governor's "stability, experience, principles."

"He's mature and reasonable—not a bomb thrower," Bush said, adding that he didn't mean to besmirch anybody in the field. "I've got to be a little careful, because I like Perry; he's our governor."

Yet Bush wasn't nearly as kind about Newt Gingrich, admitting that he knows the former House speaker well and isn't a fan. "I'm not his biggest advocate," he said.

Romney is Poppy’s mini-me.

W and Jeb have been trying to get Poppy’s love ever since by being the best RINO’s they can be....

And Jack Kemp was the best choice in the 1988 campaign.

Well...all the little roaches are coming out of the woodwork.

Right there is Ronald Reagans biggest screw up.

Just think if he would have selected someone else for VP. We may not have this clown if office today.

There is no such thing as the republican establishment. It’s just the establishment now.

R and D... They are one in the same.

Is that really because he likes Mitt best, or because he thinks Mitt’s the least likely to threaten 0 in 2012, leaving the field open for Jeb in ‘16?

"Read my lips..."

We read you loud and clear Mr. Bush and still don't like what you say.

We don't need a single ToTUS replacement in the Oval Office. We need a reasonable facsimile of a conservative. one not just mouthing the right words.. but actually ready to pursue some series reform. shrinking the blobcracy this thing gubamint has become.. and not our hopes.

Was the deep negative reaction many have towards the political identity “Bush” - compounded by ‘endorsement’ -
supposed to be encouraging? Snort.
