George H.W. Bush Is With Her This Election

by Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, daughter of Robert Kennedy, visited George H.W. Bush over the weekend and came back claiming that he told her that he was voting for … Hillary Clinton.

Townsend, a Democrat who served as Maryland lieutenant governor for eight years, posted a photo to her Facebook account of her with the former president with a caption that read “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”

Jim McGrath, a spokesman for George H.W. Bush, neither confirmed nor denied the statement made by Townsend and told CNN, “The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”

After the statement by Bush’s camp, the photo was removed from social media.

It is no secret of the love lost between the Bush family and Donald Trump. Jeb Bush said that he will not be voting for Trump, but did not go as far as to say that he would be voting for Hillary either. There was also the Republican National Convention where neither George Bush senior or junior, or any former presidents at all, showed up to endorse Donald Trump.

This is really the same fight we have seen since early in the primaries, the Republican establishment leaders fighting for control of their party versus Donald Trump.

Pro-Trump supporters will discount this as nothing new and call President Bush a traitor to the party and Anti-Trumpers will say this is just further proof that the man shouldn’t be president. In the end, I suspect, this will have little more importance than a single vote cast.

    I am so sick of hearing Donald Trump being so conceited. Me,me,me. I, I, I, he must not have any clue that he cannot get anything done with out the help of Congress. I believe that if he does win,we will be subjected to more of the same treatment as Obama. There will be another 4 years wasted with nothing getting done except back door deals late at night. What a waste of my time.

    I think that there aren’t any differences in parties, and the way we elect a POTUS isn’t as it seems! Our votes don’t count, they go through the motions, just to keep us from rising up! There are tale tell signs of this, but to keep up the appearance of normalcy they play it all out! Our country is done! There is no escaping a “One World Government!” They keep us busy with scandals and fake elections so we stay calm!

    I think that the Republican Party became sick under Bush 1, the illness began when Bush spoke about this “new world order” thing, then was later quoted as saying, “if they knew what we were doing, they would hang us”. The RINOs began to be exposed, Clinton, Bush 2, Obama, and now the Hilda-Beast all seem to be on the same page with this New World Order garbage. Along comes Trump, and this stuff begins to get real exposure. Trump is the wrench in their wheel. So is this the end of the Republican party, no it is not. The Republican Party is now on the operating table, the cancer that has infected this body is about to be removed, those cancer cells are a tough lot, and it is going to take a lot off cutting and laser burning to make that body healthy again. This cancer will fight Trump the surgeon, and all other medical staff, the American people, right down the line. This cancer will be defeated.

    For all those useful idiots in the electorate (the voters) who thought that the Bush dynasty was Republican, the truth is coming out that the dynasty is hand in hand with the NWO left in promoting a global government. The Bush’s never were ‘conservative. “Horrors” you say in disbelief. When will the public wake up and realize that just because a politician says they are “Republican” does not mean that they will uphold their oath of office of fealty to the Constitution of our Republic or the Republican plank. The public has been deceived in their naivete’ for decades and still thinks that the liars will fulfill their promises. The two party duopoly has effectively been working to give control to the obscenely rich multi-billionaires of the world with the United Nations fronting the march to the New World Order which will obliterate our American autonomy. Trump is no conservative and Hillary is seditious. The third parties are marginalized out of contention by the two-party duopoly. No third party will be allowed to participate in the election system. beyond the token vote support. The blame lies mainly on the electorate (voters) who belive the lies of their party candidates and repeatedly vote them back into office. The voter fraud is ignored and the voters expect change, then wonder why things get progressively worse and blame the few constitutionalists in office for not performing miracles of conservatism. Those few constitutionalists cannot get on committees and over ride the establishment hacks who want to give our Republic away to the NWO. Sedition is rampant in politics and the public blithely is unaware of it. Why do the RINOs of congress (both houses) keep getting re-elected? Fraudulence at the polls id part of it, but electorate ignorance is the main culprit. The left has become full blown socialist/Marxist and the establishment right is complicit behind the scenes while they lie to the public. A full scale exodus of the voters to form a REAL constitutional Republican Party is needed. The Constitutional Party of today is not quite constitutional in the framework that the founding fathers intended. The Libertarian party is close, but again, not quite what the founders intended because of interpretation by its leaders.

    I gave up on Bush 1 with his NWO thousand points of light crap, plus his attack on the 2nd amendment. Voted for him once but Perot was the best choice in 92, so now who cares who the Bush family votes for. No more Bushes or Clintons, lets give Trump a chance.

    @Gary; I can tell you one thing… Donald Trump’s dining room makes the White House dining room look like it’s from ‘Nebraska Furniture Mart’ ! (Nothing against NFM either) Donald Trump has dined with, entertained and mingled with people from every walk of life…. including world leaders, international businessmen (and women), and wealthy politicians. Donald Trump and Melania can and will represent the United States in a grand and honorable fashion which is more than I can say about Obama and Michelle OR Hillary!!

    Any IDIOT that would actually CONSIDER voting for HITLERY has no love or respect for this country. IF you are siding with a PROVEN LYING, CORRUPT, CRIMINAL and MURDERER and are basically looking to get all the “freebies” the SCUMOCRAT ‘party and their minions can promise. (too bad it will never happen. because you will just get bamboozled by the clinton crime cartel AGAIN as they get richer, TAX your butts to death, and flood our country with MORE illegals and “refugees” to take jobs away from AMERICAN citizens. (happening already)

    Of course, Hillary is a New World Order comrade and Trump is a pain in the NWO’s tush. As for the Republican Party being dead, sure the NWO if they can’t control it want it dead. Right now it appears dead because the RINO’s are in charge and there are too many in the party that are afraid to stand up against those in control. LET IT DIE and conservatives will rise.
