George W. Bush Endorses Mitt Romney

George W. Bush and Mitt Romney

ABC News has reported that Former President George W. Bush endorsed Mitt Romney on Tuesday in his run for President of the United States. Romney is the presumptive nominee for the Republican nomination to take on President Obama in the fall.

When asked who he endorsed for President George W. Bush told an ABC reporter, as an elevator door was closing, that he endorsed Romney. The 43rd President was getting on the elevator after he gave a speech in Washington D.C.

Bush told the reporter,

“I’m for Mitt Romney,”

The entire Bush clan has endorsed Mitt Romney for President. Over the last few months Romney has been endorsed by Former President George H.W. Bush (W’s father), Former First Lady Barbara Bush (W’s Mother) and Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (W’s Brother).

Romney was asked about a possible endorsement by Bush in March. Romney responded at the time by saying,

“I haven’t met with President George W. Bush. We speak from time to time,”

The Associated Press also noted that an endorsement by George W. Bush could wind up being a bigger liability than most realize. They wrote,

“While largely unspoken, both sides acknowledge that Republicans would be best served by not reminding voters of the Bush legacy of gaping budget deficits, two wars and record low approval ratings. His eight-year presidency has merited no more than a fleeting reference from Romney and his rivals in debates, campaign stops and interviews.”

Andrea Mitchell asked Romney adviser Kevin Madden about the endorsement Tuesday on MSNBC.

Madden responded,

“Sure! We’ve always said that we were happy to have George W. Bush,”

    Mitt Romney’s Magic Mormon Underwear protects him from the evils of the world including socialism, illegal immigrants, homosexuals and taxes on his inherited wealth. Can these sacred garments also make it rain down enough cash for a victory in this race since well over 90% of public offices are bought in our country by Big Money?

    KEEPING IT THOUGHTFULLY HONEST: So let's be clear, Romney now says he “only had ownership of his company that he created (that was outsourcing our American jobs to Communist China!” Does that mean that he was only concerned about collecting his money regardless of what the company was doing? Romney keeps insulting the intelligence of thinking Americans! He keeps bring into question this own integrity by his inconsistent statements with his past record! And expects Us to have confidence to vote for him! Really?
