he endorsement from Bush, who despite prodding from members of his famous family and prominent Republicans decided to sit out the 2012 contest, is the latest sign that the Republican establishment is coalescing around Romney after months publicly griping about finding another candidate.

“Not only field hands, but badly outnumbered field hands at that; it’s the Republican primary voters who keep the whole scenario going.”
My respect for the remaining relatively conservative candidates is declining. At this point, it really is their patriotic duty to defer to one among them and for the others to drop out. I really don’t care how they do it. Straws, lots, drinking game, scripture memorization - I don’t care. But two of them really need to set egos aside and boost one to the top. The stakes in 2016 will be rubble if we don’t win in 2012.
ABR now, ABR+ABO in November.
“I doubt he can beat Hillary, but if she doesnt run, who will? Howard Dean?”
In 2012 the GOP may be a third party distraction.
Oops - meant to say:
“In -2016- the GOP may be a third party distraction.”
Pop, brother & Rove, all support Mutt.
This is an interesting development, but not surprising. If anyone is, it's probably rick perry. Here's a portion of a recorded message sent out on the 7th to people requesting absentee ballots.....
Hi, this is Gov. Rick Perry calling absentee ballot voters in Florida to tell you I'm in this race to win it and to ask for your vote. Floridians can send a message to Washington: We're tired of Obama, sky high unemployment, too big to fail bailouts. Our party's the conservative party and we should govern conservatively. I'm a proven conservative in the Florida tradition of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.
The Bushes were never "dominant" in TX. GHWB ran for the senate and lost. He was RNC chairman so was "known" in Houston. They were Republican when Texans were leaving the Dem party. His appointments were coming from the national party.
GWB was a nobody until he ran against Ann Richards and she was hated.
The Bushes have always been part of the elite establishment.
I have never been a big Perry fan...vote for him but never worked for him.
However, I am a Reagan conservative, and without a doubt, it's a shame that Perry isn't winning because he is exactly what small government consevatives say they want. Perry is hated by Rove and the Bushes because Perry has remained his own man and gone his separate way from them.
The immigration problem...Perry has spent $400 million of Texas tax dollars to keep them out and it really isn't OUR problem. Itis the feds job to protect the border.
If you want to help, pressure your congressmen because it is more their job than Perry's to keep illegals out. Because other states don't worry about it until it hits them, and they blame texas for letting them in, their congress men don't care to do anything about the border.
Perry is NOT a lover of illegal immigrants.
A lot of the Texans who have pounded on Perry on FR are Ron Paul supporters...secretly. I liked Christy when he didn't like unions...before he liked Romney. LOL! Cheers~
Nice summary. It dispels a lot of misconceptions about how ‘Texan’ the snowbird Bush family is. I think they regard themselves like the British in India with their opportunism in the South.
He’s better than O’Bummer. But I still like Santorum. Why is he being ignored? Maybe because they can’t find anything wrong with him.

“So will that make it his turn in four years?” ]]
Jeb Bush’s chances of winning the presidency (”Bush the IIIrd”?) are about as good as Mitt Romney’s....
Take that any way you wish.
This is a republic, not a dynasty....
No more Clintons!
No more Bush’es!
With friends like this, who needs enemies?
I guess the best spin that can be put on it is that it would have been remarkable for a Bush to back anyone other than Myth.
Birds of a feather . . . .
Hey it works in North Korea! And before ‘Bammy’ is done I expect the US to look a lot like North Korea.
Always knew Jeb was a shallow AH. He’s just betting on the winner. Probably going for VP slot. It’s all about Jeb.
Excellent post in its entirety. I have been thinking the same thing recently so it's good to see a coalescence of thought.
Wow, a Bush endorsing Romney. That’s going to play REALLY well also with the Dems, the anti-war crowd, even the Paulistas, etc.
How do you define “far ahead”?
