The Godfather has spoken. Papa Bush who has controlled the GOP with an iron fist (no pun intended) for the last 23 years has endorsed fellow Progressive Republican Mitt Romney.
BERLIN, N.H. – Former President George H.W. Bush revealed today he is supporting Mitt Romney in his bid for the presidency, potentially adding further momentum to the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign.
“I think Romney is the best choice for us,” the former President Bush told the Houston Chronicle. “I like [Texas Governor Rick] Perry, but he doesn’t seem to be going anywhere; he’s not surging forward.”
On Romney, he was effusive.
“He’s a fine person,” he said. “I just think he’s mature and reasonable – not a bomb-thrower.”
Mitt Romney clearly has the approval of the House of Saud! Their viceroy Papa Bush has blessed Romney as the anointed GOP candidate. This would be so hysterical if it wasn’t so sad.
