ormer Florida Governor Jeb Bush endorsed Mitt Romney after Romneys lopsided win in Illinois Tuesday night. The former Florida Governor a Republican heavyweight called on members of the party to coalesce behind Romney.
Congratulations to Governor Mitt Romney on his win last night and to all the candidates for a hard fought, thoughtful debate and primary season, said Bush in a statement. Primary elections have been held in thirty-four states, and now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall. I am endorsing Mitt Romney for our Partys nomination. We face huge challenges, and we need a leader who understands the economy, recognizes more government regulation is not the answer, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism and works to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed.
Bush, the brother of former President George W. Bush, is a much-respected voice in the party and was considered by some to be a leading contender for the nomination if he had d was courted by some conservatives as an alternative candidate. But he rejected calls for his candidacy. Romney also won the primary in Bushs home state of Florida.
His father, former President George H.W. Bush has also endorsed Romney.

RINO’s on pararde.
One thing thats clear is the media is delighted with Romney's success.
“Bush, the brother of former President George W. Bush, is a much-respected voice in the party...”
Why is it I don’t feel like a Republican anymore?
Who remembers the picture taken in February of Bush 41 and Jeb yucking it up with the evil bastard in the Oval Office?
Sure they want Romney.
Pardon me while I check to see if the Pope is still Catholic.
While things are no totally over for Santorum and certainly over for Gingrich, I think we have to resign ourselves to Romney being the GOP nominee. Despite Romney’s shortcomings on conservative principles he would be infinitely better as President than a second term for Obama. What conservatives need to do is stick to our principles and see that Romney runs to the right of center and picks a team that includes many conservatives. We have to avoid the mealy mouthed middle of the road lets compromise with liberals that was the hallmark of the McCane disaster. Obama is beatable if we stick to his record and put some fire in Romney’s belly.
Yep. That's all it is. If Romney is the Nominee, Obama will win in a landslide. What an easy orchestration by the MSM and the left.....and for anyone who supported Romney.
Rino’s humping Rino’s.
RINOs of a feather.
Papa Bush 41 did....and Babs too.
but I never heard 43 or Jeb before...
but they are all good RINOs

I’m already making peace with a second Obama term. Now how can we best help his opposition in Congress?
All we need now is for Chamberlain to come back from Munich waving a piece of paper.
Well, what I also think you have to resign yourself to, is that Romney is going to stammer and stutter and flub and stumble throughout the fall — and Obama is going to saunter right back into office.
We, the ABO crowed, have ensured ourselves another loss in the general election if this bumbler manages to get the nomination.
I, myself, prefer to hold out hope for a brokered convention, and for another more lethal candidate, or, preferably Newt, to arise out of the ashes. Either that, or just let Obama get in and let the entire THING collapse like a house of cards.
Ok, and then if Romney gets in as prez, we get to see him up there, again, stammering, stumbling, and made a mockery of by the clowns and bullies who have resided in Congress for umpteen million years. We’ll watch him “try” to enact conservative policies, yet fail because he’s not strong enough as president or in his convictions to fight them off. And we don’t even KNOW what sort of Congress we’ll be dealing with in 2012.
I’d rather see it all just crash and burn and then start over. It would be less painful.
He, like the rest of the Bushes, is a Rockefeller Republican at heart.
Gee—Coulda knocked me over with a cannonball.
Like the rest of the Bush’s he is NWO at heart.
