Former President George H.W. Bush To Formally Endorse Romney
The Yeshiva World News ^ | March 28, 2012

Posted on 03/28/2012 2:06:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Former President George H. W. Bush will formally endorse Mitt Romney on Thursday in Houston, Texas.

The endorsement comes a week after the former president’s son, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) endorsed Romney. Former first lady Barbara Bush has also endorsed Romney.

In December of 2011 the elder President Bush indicated support for Romney, saying that “Romney is the best choice for us.”

The endorsements by most members of the Bush family suggest mainstream Republican heavyweights want the Republican primary to effectively end and for the party to rally around Romney.

In his endorsement, Gov. Bush urged the party to “unite” around Romney.

“Primary elections have been held in 34 states, and now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Gov. Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall,” the Florida governor said in his endorsement.

The only surprise here is that he isn’t waiting a little longer.

I might vote for him if I have to, but I will never unite behind him or Obama the man he was cloned from.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!

One Republican establishment man endorsing another Republican establishment man is hardly news and with Bush's abysmal approval numbers during his last few years in office (thanks in part to 24/7 media Bush-bashing) I hardly think Romney will get much from this predetermined endorsement.

How many times are they going to endorse the liberal? Months ago they had their photo op. They must think they have weigh with conservatives. Hey Barbara, Sarah maybe in TX soon. Say it to her face - tell her to go home to Alaska.

The GOP E hates conservatism - so they can take their endorsement and shove it up mitt’s liberal agenda.

They endorse him a few months back, also. Didn't work so good, now they are hammering it away in case someone miss it. LOL! They are so important, you know.

So the Elitists don't care what the people think!

Stop the vote once the "Bushes" decide what is good for us.

This is exactly what RINO supreme George HW Bush was supposed to do. A side note on HW Bush, he was 100 pro-abortion before Reagan picked him as his running mate. Reagan’s handlers told Bush he would have to become
“pro-life” to run with Reagan. So became selective pro-abortion, believing in murdering babies in cases of rape, incest and the non-existant “life of the mother”. This was also his son’s stance, and most other RINOs that pass themselves off as pro-lifers. And all the Bush women are pro-abortion, and pro-homo “marriage”, including old lady
Barbara Bush.

Screw the Bushes, everyone of them. They are the embodiment of RINO.

Reagan’s first gut reaction about GWHB was correct and he should not have elevated him to VP.

George HW Bush, not far behind Carter, Obama and Clinton in being one of the most sorry-assed presidents we’ve ever had.

Of course, a one-term loser endorses the guy who couldn't beat John McCain in a primary, who in his turn lost to 0.

This is literally a "less than zero" figure with a couple of exponents.

Oh, look! Papa Bush (father to Dubya and Bill Clinton) is endorsing Romney! What a surprise! He let Jeb go first and now he too asks everyone to rally around the Trojan Horse candidate named Mitt. I wonder if this endorsement schedule was discussed in their recent White House tête-à-tête with Barack?

Exactly...maybe there are many that forget about the Rio Accord, Agenda 21 and sustainable development, all initiated by Bush in 1992, or that he is an illuminati kingpin tied to the 13 bloodlines. For Bush to endorse Mitt means that Mitt will endorse the NWO.

Thanks for the research, Hostage. And wasn’t GHWB condescending toward Richard Allen? GHWB is always gushing over Democrats though. I think he regrets not having become a Democrat in the 1950s.

I don’t know, but I thought he had a mansion in the Bellaire section of Houston and stayed thre during the winter, but in ME of course in the summer. Republican primary voters were easily hoodwinked by GHWB.
