Going over most patriot heads unless they read the Drudge Report or the British Guardian newspaper: America is being sold out by the Bush family. No mistake. You read that right. George H.W. Bush, father of George W. and Jeb will cast his vote in Election 2016 for Hillary Clinton.
“Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, JFK’s niece, writes on Facebook that the former president will spurn Donald Trump for Clinton in November.” (Guardian, Sept. 20, 2016) “The post by Kathleen Kennedy Townsend – the former lieutenant governor of Maryland and daughter of Robert F Kennedy – shows her posing with George HW Bush with the caption “The President told me he is voting for Hillary!!”
“Townsend – writing on Facebook under the name Kathleen Hartington – has been a longtime vocal supporter of Clinton’s campaign.
“Jim McGrath, a Bush family spokesman, told the Guardian: “The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”
Mighty big of him, not commenting on the presidential race in the interim between now and election. “The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in 50 days.” No, it’s not. It’s a vote against the future of America, turning the country over to what would be the third term for the nation’s biggest detractor. Voting privately for a candidate of choice is one thing. Announcing for whom you are going to vote well ahead of election day, is stumping.
“The former president made clear in May he would not endorse Donald Trump, a stance echoed by his son, former president George W Bush. (Guardian) “At the time, Jim McGrath, a spokesman for George HW Bush, told the Guardian “At age 91, President Bush is retired from politics. He naturally did a few things to help Jeb, but those were the ‘exceptions that proved the rule’.”
“George HW’s son and George W’s brother, Jeb Bush, was one of Trump’s unsuccessful opponents in the 2016 Republican primary. The Republican nominee repeatedly maligned Jeb Bush, a former two-term governor of Florida, as “low-energy”.
“Jeb Bush has repeatedly derided Trump and his “abrasive, know nothing-like nativist rhetoric” but ruled out support for Clinton in a Washington Post editorial in July, writing: “I haven’t decided how I’ll vote in November – whether I’ll support the Libertarian ticket or write in a candidate.”
“If George HW Bush does cast his ballot for Clinton, he’ll join a number of prominent Republicans who have crossed party lines in 2016 out of disdain for Trump. The ranks include many close to the Bush family including Brent Scowcroft, George HW Bush’s national security adviser as well as Sally Bradshaw, a longtime top aide to Jeb Bush.”
Bush’s “private citizen vote” should qualify him as president of the #NeverTrumpers claiming voting for congenital liar Hillary Clinton is “voting your conscience”.
Given George H.W.’s early stance on One World Government back in 1991, his support of Hillary Clinton should be no surprise. Then there’s the long 8-year deafening silence from George W. Bush during all the uninterrupted horrors of Barack Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America, really the Fundamental Destruction of America.
Thank Heaven, the family’s multi-million dollar push to get Jeb Bush elected in the Republican primary not only failed, but failed abysmally.
That America’s back stabbers include former presidents from the Republican side of the aisle is tragedy in the making. It is proof positive that politicians in both the Democrat and Republican parties would sell off their nation’s sovereignty for a song just to hold onto political power.
God bless America. God bless its people being sold-out by former presidents and a wannabe one, tied to a serving president whose intention is the wholesale destruction of the country he was elected to serve.
