Posted on 03/06/2012 7:09:50 AM PST by VU4G10
"I'm worried about this campaign. Too ugly. I really don't like it, and I think it's too bad, very much, for Mitt Romney," Former First Lady Barbara Bush said on FOX News' "The Five" today.
"I think it's been the worst campaign I've ever seen in my life," she said.
Bush and her husband, former President George H. W. Bush have endorsed Mitt Romney for the nomination.
"I'm worried about this campaign because it's too ugly. I really don't like it. And I think it's too bad and I'm very much for Mitt Romney, as is I guess my husband. I'm endorsing him for George, but
there I go again," Bush told FOX News.

Out of touch, as usual.
Uh, MEMO to Barbara: YOUR guy started it. YOUR guy has done the most of it. YOUR guy has spent the most money doing it. YOUR GUY is to blame.
Got it? Thank you. Now, please return to enjoying a lavish lifestyle that we all get to pay for.
Her man Mittens with his scorched earth policy has been one of the main reasons.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
I always thought McCrap ran a dirty campaign against her son by saying he was anti Catholic. Someone needs to make sure she’s on her meds.
Right on, Dio!
If I never hear the names Bush or Clinton again it will be too soon. How can we miss them if they won’t go away?
Somehow I’m thinking the First Lady is leading up to suggesting ... Jeb ... would be the solution.
I’ll pre-empt that a transparent agenda, by suggesting Governor Palin would be a far more formidable candidate to emerge from a brokered convention.
Back to you, Mrs. Bush.
Yeah, when I see Barbara Bush’s name, the first thing that now comes to mind is her telling Palin to basically stay the hell up in Alaska. She and her whole GOP-e ilk stood by for years, not lifting a finger to protest, when Palin and her family were savaged in the most outlandishly vicious ways. And NOW, Barbara Bush complains of “ugliness” in the campaign?? She and all her worthless, backstabbing, GOP-e country-clubbers can just go to hell!
Because of GWB we got BHO.
Thanks, Mrs. Bush.
PS: She thinks this campaign is rough? Evidently, Mrs. Bush hasn’t done a lot of reading. I guess she isn’t familiar with the election of 1860?
You want brutal, ma’am? THAT was brutal.
Yes. There you go again. Now, go away.
YEAH AND IT’S BECAUSE MITT OF MITT ROMNEY’S “SCORCHED EARTH” TACTICS! How Ironic. The Tea Party ruined everything for the e-Republicans. Good, I hope they lose.
Bttt... Agree ! Great post !
I wonder how much pull the Bush family has inside the party anymore.
The most likely outcome will be Romney's but boy Ron Paul moving his delegates to Romney for the inclusion of his son Rand as a VP Candidate,
The same could happen with Gingrich and Santorum pledging their delegates to Romney or a decision to join their delegates with one as Presidential candidate and the other as VP candidate. No way will the delegates allow for an outside candidate to swoop in and capture the nomination, nor should they.
Typical clueless RINO. She just doesn’t get it. Thankfully, there were no comprimises at Valley Forge, or we wouldn’t even be here.
I miss the tradition of ex Presidents and their wives going away quietly after they have left office. The Bushes have had their day in the sun. Keep out the Bushes.
She conveniently forgets the negative campaign her husband and his minions ran against Reagan in 1980. “Voodoo economics”, “we can’t afford to have his finger on the nuclear trigger” and the “he’s too conservative to be electable” mantra. The Republican patricians certainly stick up for each other...
Well Babs, your husband and his milquetoast cronies have NOBODY to blame but themselves. Stop shoving RINO losers down our throats and we won’t have this problem anymore.
The mud slinger is her favorite, so I suppose she must really be OK with it.
Once the nominee is selected, former first ladies could and really ought to step forward and support the Conservative candidate.
Bemoaning the perfectly logical and necessary process by which hopefuls are sorted out BY THE VOTERS is really out of place.
If it is ugly and dirty, that is because the MSM has openly campaigned for the incumbent and continues to do so, EVEN during the challengers’ campaigning.
Barbara you were a decent First Lady; however, it is way past time for the Bush Dynasty and it’s political endorsements to fade quietly into the background.
Great as he was, even Ronald Reagan had the decency and class to know when it was time to leave the limelight. Barbara, bless your heart, it’s time to go now.
I’ve grown to detest this woman.
Barbara Bush regarding Sarah Palin:
The Ultimate RINO!
Babs, like her daughter-in-law, is pro abortion. I have no use for either one.
Hey Babs, shut your pie hole and go crawl back in the bushes.
Yeah, poor poor Mitt Romney. The king of negative campaigning.
I wish these relics would shut up already. What the hell do they care really.
Stay out da Bushes.
Her telling Palin to stay in Alaska was the last straw with me, too. I used to think alot of her, but now I try not to think of her at all.
Time for ol’ Barb to go out onto the ice floe.
I saw the interview. Barbara adores the sex fiend rapist Clinton. And Empty Romney.
Babs only knows what her men folk tell her.
Boy, Babs has really let herself go. Too many Manhattans at breakfast will do that.
1. Have you and President Bush analyzed the source of the most negative TV ads and statements throughout this Primary Season?
2. If so, will you personalize your concern about the tone by advising the candidate who is the main source of such negativity to cease and desist his association with such ads?
Oh, sometimes we forget that the candidate whose campaign is the source of most of the negativity asks us to believe that, although he is capable of leading the free world, he cannot influence the SuperPacs funding such negativity!
Many Americans simply see such negativity as a "temper tantrum" by the GOP-e at having its designated candidate consistently rejected by at least 2/3 of the GOP electorate.
imus is the reason fox business news is not a serious player.
Classless. Utterly and totally classless.
Well said. I remember her smug trashing of Palin.
