You got all of that from a 4 word quote? I think if you were to
talk to Bush it would be a bit better than "Tepid"
The last catastrophe pass the baton.
The real question is will Jimmy Carter endorse Obama? One would think so because
they are so very much alike as has been the disastrous results of their
Typical AP spin.
bush avoids politics. I wish Obama would follow his lead.No veteran
ever fought for socialism!
Endorsement? My dog would show more enthusiasm. Why wouldn't Bush like
Romney? They are two peas in a pod. Same policies, same advisors. Like Bush
and what he gave us? Good luck with that, because Romney would give us more of
the same if not worse.
"Since leaving office in January 2009, George W. Bush has tried to avoid
politics."We only wish he had tried to avoid politics
Actually, I never thought we could have a worse President then Carter.Then
came Bush (W).So then I thought we could never have a worse
President than W.Then came Obama.I have never had the
opportunity in my 32 years of voting to vote for a good option for President,
only ever the lesser of 2 or 3 evils. Do I dare hope Mitt will be any
Well, Mission Accomplished!
I predict that this will prove to be a tremendous boon for the Romney campaign.
President George W. Bush served his country and pulled us through a rough time
because he had a good Cabinet, advisors, a father who had gone through a similar
situation. President Bush unified the country for a time through his
leadership. He made tough decisions in a tough time. The economy went on the
downside after the House and Senate fell out of his control and bad decisions
were made by that group of Legislators in control. President Bush was not an
outgoing President trying to pound his own back and chest as some Presidents.
He is not in charge of the country and President "I" "I"
"I" Obama says he is completely in charge.This endorsement,
even though in few supposedly words, will help unite, again the GOP and
hopefully the country more in November as we will have a changing of the
"I" Guard to the "We" Guard and have a more solidified instead
of a divided country and world. Problems won't go away but the debacles of
4 years of this administration will hopefully subside and we can have a
turnaround like Governor Romney has proven to do in the past to present. I like
The last sentence made me chuckle; Dubya did a heckuva job avoiding politics the
8 yrs prior to Jan 2009.Do we really want another Ivy League MBA in
the oval office?
Not conservative enough for me but CERTAINLY the better of two evils. Retire
Hatch, and for sure retire BO.
The headline is incorrect. If a journalist read all of the info written about
the endorsement, they would learn that the experts say Bush has waited for and
down played his endorsement because he knows that he is unpopular and it would
not be a real help to Romney.
I think GW said as much as Romney wanted him to say. Less is more when coming
from the lips of GW.
The old "kiss of death"?? Or, "be careful what you wish for"?
Thanks W. Don't exert yourself.
I for one listen very closely to everything GWBush says and does --- and
then immediately think, believe and do the exact opposite! GWBush
lost the last of his credibility and respect as Commander-in-Chief with THIS
military Veteran with "Mission Accomplished" and "Weapons of
Mass Destruction".And that was BEFORE he lit the the economy on
fire, and played his fiddle while watching it burn.
To "LDS Liberal" and what is your opinion of Obama who is now roasting
marshmallows and throwing gasoline on the fire that you blame Bush for?

So some of you like Michael Moore's endorsement of Obama but mock a brief
respectful endorsement by a former president.LDSLIB, so tell us who
controlled the house and the senate when Bush supposedly set the economy on fire
and played his fiddle while watching it burn.Aside from the childish
references, Obama conitnued to have the benefit of a majority for the first half
of his presidency.So are you suggesting that we just give him 4 more years
to be sure he's as inept as most of us already knew?Did you really
think he was qualified to fix a broken economy and get out of a war the he and
Hillary voted for, and low and behold....we're still in it.
"Tepid Endorsement"I have always thought that Utah's
loyalty to George W. Bush was misplaced.Considering the fact that we
returned him to office with the highest percentage approval rate of the nation
in his last presidential election his endorsement leaves something to be
desired.Could his lack of strong support for Romney be because of
Romney's religion?The Evangelicals do not consider him their
To "LDS Liberal" just to be clear, you are saying that Obama is not
burning the economy fast enough.As for being inline with American
politics, you are wrong there too.Gallup in the 2011 poll titled
"Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S" find that
41% of the US are conservatives and 21% are liberals.With respect to
the issues, Rasmussen polls found that 72% of the US believes that the
individual mandate in the ACA is unconstitutional.Gallup found that
most Americans would support a repeal of the ACA.60% of Americans
disapproved of Obama's handling of the BP oil spill.74% of
americans disapprove of Obama's handling of the economy according to
Gallup.Most Americans disapprove of Obama's handling of Foreign
Affairs, Education, handling of Afghanistan, Jobs, and the Deficit.Recent polls show that more people like Romney than like Obama.The
evidence shows that you agree with the minority of America.
The political ladder has many rungs some being strong and other weak. While
Romney has many more rungs to climb I trust that they will all be strong ones
and his climb to the top will be straight forward (up) until not only the apex
is reached but that with GOD's help he will be able to accomplish all of
those things for which he has climbed.
Romney probably would have preferred for bush to endorse ows occupant living
large in our house. I don't care if like or dislike romney, what we
currently have is useless to us our country, economy and future.
"As with most of the country --- I'm upset he hasn't done MORE,
and FASTER. He's suffering from too little, too late. But what can
America expect with an Obstuctionist Anti-American Congress - who put Party
Politics ahead of this Country."LDS Liberal,I agree
about the Anti-American Congress who put party politics ahead of this country.
The rest of the nation agrees, too. That is exactly why in 2010 took the power
away from that party.Thanks for finally realizing what we have been
saying the whole time!
Thanks W. Now go back to the ranch.
I'm glad it was "tepid." I think Bush was an awful President and I
don't want ANY guy he is actually gungho for!
@AZRodsMaricopa, AZ12:17 p.m. May 16, 2012LDSLIB, so
tell us who controlled the house and the senate when Bush supposedly set the
economy on fire and played his fiddle while watching it burn.============ Bush Jr had a slim Republican majority in the house
until 2007 [7 of his 8 years]. The Senate was split 50-50 at the beginning
of his first term and 49-49-2 at the end of his second term. Republicans held
the Senate majority through the remainder of his presidency.======================== @Redshirt1701Deep Space 9, Ut1:25 p.m. May 16, 2012"Recent polls show that more people like
Romney than like Obama."----------- Whatever
RedShirt -- I can even use FoxNews to counter your lame arguemnt:
"President Obama tops Republican Mitt Romney in a head-to-head
matchup, according to the latest Fox News poll, which finds American voters
feeling more positive about the economy.Obama would have an
advantage of 46 percent to 39 percent over Romney, if the election were held
today. Three weeks ago the candidates were tied at 46 percent each." ~ FoxNews May 16th, 2012
@fresnogirlLet's not be hasty in calling Bush an awful
president. Things were better when he was in office. No?
To "LDS Liberal" is that the best you have? SOmething that changes on a
daily basis based on whims of the people?Never mind the fact that on
the other 6 items that I listed, you are 100% in disagreement with the majority
of people.Again, your views are not inline with most of the US, and
your approval of Obama is a fickle thing that won't become more consistant
for a few months.
Good grief, here we go again. America should vote for the person who they
believe can do the best job. The guy we got now can't do the job. Mr.
Romney is qualified to do the job. Why would anyone want to go through another
4 years of what we have had with Obama. All he cares about is taking trips all
over the world at our expence instead of staying home and taking care of
business. Oh now, I know! He doesn't know how to take care of business.
Vote for Romney, he's the only and best person AMERICA has to survive.
