George W. Bush is no darling of conservatives.
He grew government, ballooned the deficit, bailed out the banks to the tune of $800 billion and created big government entitlement prescription drug programs.
And Donald Trump won the GOP nomination repudiating his globalist foreign and trade policies as well as the Bush families support for open borders and amnesty.
Trump continually mocked Jeb Bush on the campaign trail and turned the media designated frontrunner into an afterthought when he dropped out of the race after the South Carolina primary, closing out a Presidential campaign where he and his allies spent over $100 million dollars to win just a handful of delegates.
The Bush family believes Republican presidential nominations are owed to them by birthright so they did not take Jeb’s flameout well.
But rather than assess their disastrous policies, they are acting like spoiled children and refusing to support Donald Trump as the GOP nominee.
George H.W. Bush – the nation’s 41st President – even told guests at a fundraiser that he was voting for Hillary Clinton.
But George W. Bush – otherwise known as Bush 43 – has yet to publicly state his intentions.
But his nephew – George P. Bush, who is the Texas Land Commissioner and a Trump supporter – recently said George W. Bush may also vote for Hillary Clinton.
“George P. Bush said Tuesday that his uncle, former President George W. Bush, may join his grandfather George H.W. Bush in casting his ballots for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, according to the Associated Press.
“The Texas land commissioner made the comments while addressing a small Republican rally in San Marcos, Texas, on Tuesday night, saying that both former presidents in the family may “potentially” vote for the Democratic presidential ticket come Election Day.”
Many conservatives would judge the Bush working to elect Hillary Clinton out of spite as just as great – or maybe even a greater – betrayal than all of the big government policies they imposed on America during his President.
