UPDATE -More than just Gramps?
He’s 92 years old, so they can always blame it on senility I suppose.
Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party’s presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.
Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
On Monday, Townsend posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!” [read it all]
What should be more surprising about this blatant betrayal of conservative trust is that any Republican would be surprised.
The Bushes are more or less the figurehead of everything conservatives revolted against. Who, in the dog days of the GOP primaries, more symbolized the base’s revulsion for Republican elitism than Jeb! Bush?
And why should we even expect them to vote Republican?
We are the Roger Clintons of the Bushian GOP. Their embarrassing hillbilly cousins. We should be sitting on the porch slurping our Billy Beer and leaving the nation-running to them.
And that elitism has never more evident than in this ineffective Team Hillary ad here in California.
I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me want to run right out and vote early for Trump, more than seeing Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake trashing their GOP nominee in a Hillary campaign ad.
Now Hillary can officially do the bumper sicker.
