Via the NYT:

Former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida said Wednesday that he was endorsing Mitt Romney‘s bid for the Republican presidential nomination, and urged his party to bring the divisive primary to a close and coalesce behind Mr. Romney’s candidacy

“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,” Mr. Bush said in a statement announcing his endorsement.

“We face huge challenges,” Mr. Bush added, “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.”

    If Willard ever had any chance in a general election, and I’m not sure he ever had any, this may have just killed it.

    I mean, it’s not as bad as the previous “endorsements” by the loser triplets: Poppy Bush, Dole and McLiar… but it’s pretty close.

    Willard really is a dumbass. Some keep claiming how smart this guy is, too.

    Well, Jeb is just confirming his position as next in line for the Statist GOP nomination. If Romney loses, then Bush III, will be the frontrunner for the 2016 nomination.

    I thought 2016 was supposed to be the year of George P Bush, the first Hispanic president.

    Translation, Romney has signed on to amnesty and gotten Jeb’s support.

    Bingo.

    Willard is now officially the La Raza candidate.

    “Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.

    Willard hits a reset button every 5 minutes, the lying progressive crapweasel.

    That loser is a human Etch-A-Sketch. He shakes himself up all day every day.

    I guess the only way to see this is that it’s bad news for anyone hoping to see Romney get tough on illegals.

  11. itsagreatcountry on March 21, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Well, I still have hope. True, Jeb is the last person I would want to endorse Romney, given his love for the illegal element in our country, but perhaps it’s Jeb who needs to do this, not the other way around. Anyway, there are plenty of hard line (if it’s hard line to want our immigration laws enforced) illegal immigration people who have endorsed Romney, and he has to answer to them. Hopefully the Bushies will have outlived their welcome and their influence in this country. I can dream, can’t I?

    It’s not the Bushies who are pushing amnesty, they are just one element of the people who think it’s necessary, the corporate-WallStreetJournal Chamber of Commerce folks, of whom Romney is a part.

    “It’s not the Bushies” . . . You’ve got to be kidding. How soon they forget. “See you at the (amnesty) bill signing.” Jorge Bush, after having been beaten back by American citizens who flooded the White House and Congress with calls to prevent that monstrosity from being signed into law. You just don’t like Romney; I’m willing to give him a chance, since all the others, including that senile Ron Paul seem to want to give our country away to the illegals.

    Including Gingrich, and Perry, and Palin. amnesty supporters all of them.

    We’ll go to war with Romney on many things, and we’ll see if this is one of them, it likely will be, although, one thing the Mormons do get is demographics, so maybe there is hope.

    Santorum has the best grades on immigration from NumbersUSA. They gave Romney a below average grade.

    My point isn’t that the Bushes are not favoring amnesty, but that they aren’t the source of the push for amnesty. They are big supporters of amnesty of course.

  16. itsagreatcountry on March 22, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    That may be so about Santorum’s current grade on NumbersUSA. I haven’t checked lately. But maybe you missed it earlier this year when Numbers complained that they had tried and tried, but hadn’t been able to get Santorum to sign on to supporting E-Verify. I guess he finally gave in, but obviously Santorum was getting ready for some big time Hispandering. Yes, he’s a flip-flopper, just like Romney and every other politician.
