George H. W. Bush, easily America’s most conservative president, has reportedly claimed he will be voting for the equally conservative Hillary Clinton in November.
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.
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!!”
Look, I respect GHW Bush a great deal as a person. The man is a war hero. I do not respect GHW Bush as a politician. He and Ronald Reagan were on the opposite sides of nearly every issue, and his affinity for the Clinton family speaks volumes. The MSM will make a big deal of this because they believe it is a game-changer, but really, is anyone waiting for Bush’s endorsement with bated breath?
