If American Can Do Better Than Bush, Than Don’t Vote for Romney!

by @ 12:35 am. Filed under Nuts on Parade

Let’s face it, many of us voted for Bush because he was the best of a sad lot and we didn’t want to risk seeing a man who should probably be treated as a war criminal (John Kerry) becoming Commander-in-Chief. I voted for Bush in 2004 and I stand by my vote with no regrets. Still the man has been a total disappointment on things like the border and if Presidents could still run for a 3rd term, I’d probably not vote for Bush and find another candidate to the right of Bush to vote for. Even if that candidate didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning I’d vote for them, just because there comes a time when you have to move on. Even when you know you’ll take a loss. In my book Bush is a stone’s throw away from us Conservatives wanting him impeached, never mind if he could run for a 3rd term.

So hearing who Bush’s people want to see become our next President is an anti-endorsement for that candidate in my eyes. Reader Eric has discovered who team Bush want to see win in 2008. They are all pulling for Mitt Romney. And that’s one more major reason why I won’t support him. I don’t want to see a flip-flopping politician with team Bush under his wings, running the same games we’ve already seen run. Bush is working on a North American Union with Mexico and I’m sure Romney would keep the borders open no matter what he says. And when it comes to the issue of abortion, Romney has a much longer history of being with the pro-death crowd than the pro-life crowd. Remember Harriet Miers? Her short history of Conservative views in her political efforts was a major reason why we knew she was not right for the highest court in the land. Well Mitt Romney has an even shorter history than her when it comes to his claims of being pro-life.

Romney in 2002 affirming he’s pro-standing idle while mothers kill their babies.

During his 2002 Massachusetts gubernatorial campaign, Romney even opposed a mandatory 24-hour waiting period for abortions. He assured voters he would maintain pro-death statutes by saying:

My position has been the same throughout my political career and it goes back to the days of 1970.

That video is part of a report I found at Hot Air. Allahpundit, the honest man that he is, has found that Romney flipped to being pro-life just as rumors of his Presidential run started.

. Until I saw this, I?d assumed he made the switch sometime in the late 90s or early 00s. Nuh uh; a little googling reveals that he didn?t embrace the social con within until 2005 or so, two years after he became governor and, coincidentally, around the time the murmurs started about him running for president.

Here’s more on team Bush’s endorsement of Romney.

Bush Camp Supports Romney

When former Bush White House aides ask Karl Rove for guidance on where to throw their support in the next presidential election, he tells them President Bush is neutral about the candidates. But Bush family members, friends, and key supporters are solidly behind Mitt Romney.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has quietly given his blessing to key staffers to migrate to the Romney camp, Sally Bradshaw, who was Jeb’s staff director and is now working for Romney, told me.

There are some striking similarities between George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. Both are sons of presidential candidates. Both are multimillionaires who made their money as highly successful businessmen. Both were state governors.

Bizarrely, both Romney and Bush were on male cheerleading squads in high school ? Romney at the private Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and Bush at the private Phillips Academy at Andover, Mass.

Do you want to see old pictures of another male Presidential candidate in a cheerleading uniform? I don’t know about you, but one was enough! And do you want to hear Liberals crying a vote for Romney is a vote for Bush? It’s like they’d still be able to toss out all their Bush-hate slogans with some level of accuracy. I want Liberals to hate a Presidential candidate because he’s Conservative, not because he satisfies their lust to hate Bush.

The bottom line is that Romney has a shorter record of true Conservative stances than even the woman who Conservatives jumped out of the woodwork to oppose. If (other) Conservatives were consistent, all would oppose Romney.

    Personally, I always vote for Keyes in the primaries…he smacks the GOP talking heads around like ping pong balls in the debates.

    Keyes should run again. But as an Independent.
