George H.W. Bush Endorses Mitt Romney … Know When To Hold ‘Em, Know When to Fold ‘Em … Paul Ryan to Endorse Romney As Well

 

GOP Presidential primary candidate Mitt Romney has gained yet another big enforcement, this time it is former President George H. W. Bush. The former President Bush 41 called for Republican unity behind Romney as stated as Kenny Roger’s once sang, “You got to know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em … know when to walk away and know when to run”.

Spouting some home-grown Texas wisdom, President George H. W. Bush urged his party to coalesce behind GOP candidate Mitt Romney with a formal endorsement Thursday.

“‘It’s time when to hold ‘em and time when to fold ‘em,’” the elder Bush said, quoting Texas crooner Kenny Rogers after an interjected reminder from his wife, Barbara. “I think it’s time for people to all get behind this good man.”

Earlier this week Mitt Romney gained the endorsement from Tea party darling Florida US Senator Marco Rubio. The word on the street is that later today US House Representative from Wisconsin Paul Ryan will endorse Romney as well.

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the icon of the anti-spending movement in the Republican Party, has communicated to former Senator Rick Santorum that he will endorse Mitt Romney, according to a source familiar with the conversation.

The move is also timed to end the Republican contest, coming after another major conservative leader, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, backed Romney. It badly undercuts Santorum’s case that he can rally a conservative opposition to the moderate frontrunner, and is likely to further squeeze the money and political support Santorum has sought to command.

The Hot Air Pundit has the Democrat video ad they had been holding waiting for the Ryan endorsement of Romney … “That’s Amore”. Actually, that’s rather lame.

      As much as I respect George H. W. Bush, his endorsement does not mean too much to someone as conservative as myself. The same goes for George W. Bush. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on ….
