Skip to comments.Romney nails endorsements from George H.W. Bush and Florida Senator Marco Rubio
Posted on 03/29/2012 2:59:06 PM PDT by Lazlo in PA
Mitt Romney trotted out a pair of big-name GOP endorsements Thursday to urge Republicans to close ranks around him but his main rivals refuse to abandon their own White House dreams.
Romney received the blessing of powerful Republicans past former President George H.W. Bush and present - popular Florida Senator Marco Rubio in a 24-hour span, further signaling that the GOP establishment wants the grueling primary process to end.
Romney even met with opponent Newt Gingrich over the weekend in New Orleans to ask for his support, but no deal was brokered, advisors to both men told NBC News.
Gingrich has vowed to stay in the race until the GOP convention in Tampa, but money woes have forced him to trim his staff and travel plans.
Even Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who has largely bankrolled the ex-Speakers Super PAC, said Gingrich has reached the end of his line.

Voodoo Republicans working their special magic.
Mark my words, new Medicare vote buying for all.
Willard has not got the most important endorsement...
the one from Nana...
This is why Romney must be defeated: He will see to that it that the same process is perpetuated.
GOP-e to Mittsy’s rescue..
During the press conference, I couldn’t tell who was alive and who had assumed room temperature. It looked terrible.
(further signaling that the GOP establishment wants the grueling primary process to end.)
Further signaling that the GOP establishment don’t give a crap what the people want and that they intends to ram another loser RINO down our throats..
Wow. He’s been endorsed by the man who coined the phrase new world order. Now if he could just get the man who invented the internet if he’s not too busy fighting global warming.
After Obama is reelected, he’ll be much more flexible, and I’ll meet a lot more English speakers here.
“This is the reason the GOP field is so weak: The most damaging thing Bush, Rove, and co. did was to destroy the conservative “farm team” by controlling the distribution of GOP campaign money at the State and local level. The TEA Party has threatened that organizational structure, but they’ve been working overtime to “weed” and co-opt that grassroots process.
This is why Romney must be defeated: He will see to that it that the same process is perpetuated.”
I wish the Bushes would take their kinder,gentler, compasionate conservatism and just disappear.
Yeah right. The guy running the Santorum Ping is Romney all the way. You sir are high, drunk or out of your mind.
Mitt Romney- 100% RINO certified.
Well, Woodrow Wilson used it, as did Winston Churchill and a host to others not known as being fuzzy-headed one-worlders.
Read my lips, NO MORE RINOS!!!
Well La Ti Freakin Dah man.
You know, I’m going to back ANYONE who
is up against TEH ONE but really...
you could almost hear Frank Sinatra songs in the background, a shaker of martinis being made and GW trying not to call Babs “Muffy”...
Me either, Nana, me either...No Mittens, no way
I guess the good people of Georgia are going to have to pick up the slack from me!
I’ll be writing in SARAH PALIN.
All these people know is who went to Ivy schools and moves in THEIR social circles.
The Bush's have lost all credibility with me, and Mitt, the catalogue cut out never had any.--we used to play paper dolls with cut outs from the Sears catalogue because we lived so far out in the country and didn't have any money anyway. These cut outs were good looking, but flopped around as we played with them, having no spine. Slick and shallow, like GOP-e RINOS.
...the one from Guenevere
and he never will
oh that seals it for me then , I will vote for him t hell with his social liberal views, to hell with his Govt health care, to hell with his big spending and then forcing Catholics to close their adoption services yep this seals it for me
YEA FRIGGING RIGHT ARF
Great one, Guen!
Only the elitist establishment could have screwed this up, putting out a liberal north east Gov as a conservative , the man who signed into law Govt health care, the man who has no problem with the queer agenda, queers in the military , a man who has wrote a check to the planned parent hood.
If the establishment thinks they can use our hatred of obama to push their elitist pro homo, socially liberal Gov onto us then they have another thing coming
Sarah and Col Allen West please no PLEASE STEP IN AND SAVE US FROM THESE ELITIST ARSE HOLES.
I’m hating the establishment nearly as much as the left right now.
Unlike them, I'm not ready to concede to the GOPe and try to counter Obamacare with Romneycare. There is still much to be decided in the primaries, and if crap like this is all the current administration has to run on, we should be able to win with either Santorum or Newt. There is no reason to take the easy way out at this point.
Rubio looking for a VP spot. It’s that simple.
...WE MUST KEEP FIGHTING
THIS IS STILL AMERICA AND WE ARE STILL THE PEOPLE!
Who actually votes based on endorsements?
But let’s all remember the most important thing is getting BHO out..../sarcasm.
I will not vote for Romney, I will not vote for Santorum and I will not vote for Newt.
It won’t be my fault if bho is reelected. It will be the fault of the GOP and the people who will vote for anyone with an r behind the name.
Bend down and kiss the hand of those who feed you, may your chains rest lightly upon you, and let posterity forget you were our countrymen.
The most important thing is saving the Republic. We won’t do that by electing socialists, socialists lite, or those who will compromise with them.
If BHO is reelected We The People MUST rise up and block the agenda by electing conservatives, PATRIOTS, to local, state and congressional office!
In my opinion, Rubio just ended his political career, possibly for a VP nod. But Romney's campaign will be ravaged in November. He will never be President of the U.S., thereby leaving Rubio to run back to the Senate.
Except that Bush signed the Rio Accord in 1992 endorsing UN Agenda 21 sustainable development further backed by executive order by Clinton in 1993. You’ve connected the dots.
The coveted G.H.W. Bush endorsement.
Likely the Bush from 1992.
The manipulations of the globalists
in their farcical charade of a SElection process have become so brazen.
Mitt Romney campaign called me yesterday. When I asked who it was and they told me I said “ YOU’VE GOT to BE KIDDING! NO WAY !!”
he knew better than to even talk further and hung up.
This really changes my mind about Romney.
FUMR and FUGHWB!
Right and it’s old news already but some find it important to waste bandwidth on the POS.
I’m still not voting for Romney.
I feel like I have been “Nailed”, and woke up with a sizable about of GHB in my system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma-Hydroxybutyric_acid
Thanks GOP establishment...
He won’t get my vote, even if The Pope endorses him....he’s a RINO, and a liar, to boot.
Half a loaf is better than none. If you don’t vote for the RINO you are giving half a vote to O’Bummer. If BO wins, he will have the power to pick all the new judges on SCOTUS, and many, many federal judges. Obamacare decision will be overturned, many “recess appointments” will be made. BO is already fixin’ to select all five members to the FEC.
If you don’t exercise you right to vote this Nov., and BO gets re-elected, you many soon not have the right to vote in a fair election. BO is anti-American, and anti-Western Civilization. I am not crazy about Romney but I will walk over glass to vote for him over BO.
LOL. Yeah. The GHWB endorsement that happened 5 minutes before I posted the story is "old news".
And Santorum is close behind Newt!
