Skip to comments.Romney gets Bush backing, but no sign of George W. (Barf alert)

George W. Bush is as hard to find in his father's office, as he is in the 2012 presidential contest.
The 43rd president appears in a gold-framed picture tucked into a far corner of the room, partially hidden by a Texas flag and a cabinet door. The placement whether intentional or not is a reminder of the Republican presidential campaign and the lengths to which Romney and his rivals have tried to marginalize the two-term president.

When the elder Bush asked Romney if W had endorsed him, Barbara Bush quickly said "We'll talk about that" and ended the conversation.
And I'm proud to say, I miss W.
It’s a good question. They have to ask him.
As Long as I live, burned into my memory is the footage of George Bush standing on the pile of rubble that had been the World Trace Center and thundering to America, :I hear you!”
142% were polled? Neat trick.
The Troubled Asset Relief Program, the bank bailout program widely loathed by many conservatives, was another Bush-era package. Congress authorized nearly $700
Funny how the author never gets around to saying how this has been mostly paid back already...
There’s enormous bias in this AP article. First of all, the event was about George HW endorsing Romney. George W wasn’t involved. Yet, the article focuses on George W. It regurgitates all negatives about him and none of the positives.
Given the enormous media bias, we will all need to work very hard to prevent a second Obama term.
Honestly, its probably better if W keeps his feeling to himself on this one. Maybe in 20 years his endorsements will have impact, but not now.
THIS from the same couple that called Clinton their "honorary son" ---makes me want to puke!
I'm sorry, W...I know they are your parents, but this is more of my statement about how much I believe you've had to deal with in your life
("We thought JEB would be the more likely candidate for President...")
and other examples like the one mentioned above)
...and feel for you!!!
WE MISS YOU W!!!! -- Stay classy and stay out of this, Sir - great job!
And who is Jeremiah W. endorsing this year?
How about William A.?
These people were closely tied to Barack Obama. What’s their take on his presidency?
All of Texas is the same to media elites in NYC, Chicago, and LA.
Bush 43 lives near Dallas, if I recall.
And I’m proud to say, I miss W.
you and me both
I was half listening to a radio show last night (I think it was Mark Levin) when a caller was talking about W and a visit to Camp Lejeune. He said when Bush was to arrive, the parade grounds were packed. When the Anointed One arrived, they had to order Marines to attend.
No matter that Bush ordered troops into harm’s way, they still supported him. With Obama, the men who put their lives on the line respect the office but not the man.
W owes this country, and its politicians, absolutely nothing.
I respect him for staying out of this mess.
I really, really, really miss W.
The reason why he’s been so not-there for three years is he knows America has a big lesson to learn with the Global Left.
Almost like a Prime Directive. If we can’t kill the left rising, then we die.
Actually, his endorsement is more likely to move Republican voters than Sarah Palin's, as a recent Pew survey showed. His endorsement is worth more than anyone else's in the GOP primary right now. In 20 years, probably not so much.
Yeah, but (sadly) Bush’s endorsement in the GE would be a negative.
