George H.W. Bush Said To Vote For Hillary

Tyler Durden's picture

In the latest confirmation of how torn the republican establishment has become over the Trump candidacy, overnight it emerged that none other than 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.

As Politico first reported, 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.

On Monday, 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!!” In a telephone interview, Townsend said she met with the former president in Maine earlier today, where she said he made his preference known that he was voting for a Democrat. “That’s what he said,” she told Politico.

Asked about Townsend’s post, George H.W. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath in an email replied, "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." George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush have stayed out of the political debate since campaigning earlier this year for their son Jeb's unsuccessful bid for president. Neither George H.W. Bush nor his son, former President George W. Bush, attended this summer's Republican National Convention in Cleveland where Trump accepted the nomination.

Considering that in recent months any time a hard-line GOP establishment scion has split from party lines to endorse Clinton, it has only emboldened Trump supporters to see their candidate as one representing the anti-status quo, perhaps Trump's biggest draw, it is likely that as news of this latest quasi-endorsement spreads, it will hardly adversely impact Trump's chances in the polls.

Hillary voted for the Bush Iraq War and has been working with Obama to bomb the muslims there non-stop for 8 years so it only makes sense another bloodthirsty war monger supports her.

That's why all those Millennial peace niks like Hillary.

 

... oh, wait a second...

Republicans should follow the lead of their established party leaders, instead of following Trump off the edge of a cliff. The republican party is toast if Trump wins - a vote for Hillary is a vote to keep the republican party intact, so that they can put forward a professional candidate at the next election.

I don't know what could be more repulsive to a die-hard Democrat than to realize George H.W. Bush sharing the same taste in president.

Poor things. Alot of cognitive dissonance going around these days.

No real difference between Kennedy, Bush or Clinton Family.

All have overseen the biggest growth in federal government in US history and are aligned with the global world government "open society"elite.

Trump threatens them and therefore gets my vote.

With every downvote from the establishment, he is looking more and more like a real revolutionary that will shake up this cabal.

... "Bush" is another word for "Hillary" ...

 ... or more precisely ... "bush is another word for "(c)unt" ....

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, daughter of Robert Kennedy, is a member of the Rockefeller/CFR along with Bill Clinton, John McCain, Lynn Forester de Rothschild, and George Soros. See member lists at cfr dot org.

Obviously they haven't been paying attention.

Exactly. Especially since that president was one of those most responsible for the 9/11 WTC being brought down to cover up his earlier deeds. Sick beyond sick.

FUCK the goddamned Bush parasites.

 

Yeah.....but that cuts two ways.

 

Are you ready to go the distance?

HopefulCynical's picture

In what way do you mean, specifically?

The fact is, dislodging the NWO from power will plunge the world into turmoil. However, leaving them alone will be equally harmful.

Basically, I think humanity takes a 50% haircut any way the ball bounces. The real question is: will we still have these parasite psychopaths in charge of everything, or will we rid ourselves of them? If we don't, the cycle starts over.

crossroaddemon's picture

We won't... I think the coming turmoil is going to strengthen the current power structures, not weaken them. I wish I could believe otherwise.

"The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”

Who can back up he even said that??? I thought reading this, it was something the reporter made up.

Saul Alinsky said the KKK liked HW Bush.  Kind of a mixed message.

My first thought is "who gives a fuck what the decrepit old Satan worshipper thinks". My second thought was that all those Kennedy bitches look alike and are ugly as shit, too much inbreeding I guess.

Agree with MDB's advice to Republicans.  (That is if all they are trying to do is preserve the Republican Party.)  The absolute last thing we need is another "professional candidate".  That's all we have had for the last 50 years.

BTW Climate change is bull shit.

Climate Change is real...and it's NORMAL!

The climate NEVER stops changing which is why the scaremongers stopped using the terms "Global Cooling" and "Global Warming"...too easy to prove they're wrong...but...."Global Climate Change"....ah, yes, they can never be proven 'wrong' about that.

HopefulCynical's picture

Climate change is indeed real.

Humans have fuck-all to do with it, too.

Dental Floss Tycoon's picture

 

 

I agree entirely.  But the constant blather about it being the greatest threat to the planet is bull shit.

I will even go further.  I'm not even sure the earth has a climate.  Or if it does it includes ice ages and very warm periods spread over millions of years.

I didn't read your comment, MDB_, I just automatically down vote you now.

Bush is the archetypical insider.  (Skull and Bones, CIA, Kennedy assassination.)  He has been instrumental in putting every president in office since that the early 60's.

Just like his Nazi helping grand Pappy Prescott.

And let's not forget about another grand pappy and namesake George Herbert Walker.  He is the spawn of a whole line of assholes.

 

And "Kathleen Harrington Kennedy Townsend"!  Really?  Does it get more elitist than that?

Daddy Shrub is pissed that Jebula won't get his shot at the Big Prize! Nobody told him that the American people are really pissed off at the globallist elitests... he'll figure it out someday though...

George HW Bush is a NWO house slave.

He is very lucky that he has not been pulled in for his treasonous role in 911 and the murders of New Yorkers by the thousands.

And his dingbat womenfolk should be decorating their hideout in case the FBI ever turns over a new leaf and goes after high level traitors.

The whole Bush family should be stripped of every last penny and forced to beg on the streets.

They made billions on narcotics so that money should be seized to fund all the rehab places instead of continually ripping off taxpayers.

The Bush bums got us into this mess and the least they could do is shut up.

Nope -- they got away with murder and loot in broad daylight and they still can't stay away.

Even after they got other patsys to take the fall for their crimes they still can't stay out of sight.

They got the CIA to tie up loose ends with problematic knowledge and still can't stay out of sight.

They're like moths to a lamp.

Flies to dog poo.

All normal criminals go into hiding when they know they've been found out. 

The Bush family is such an abnormal family of criminals that they think they're off the hook just because they own Law Enforcement.

For now.

By the way, what happened to their 500 acre compoud in Paraguay? 

Why aren't they living the high live in retirement with all the loot they ripped off here and abroad?

They were obviously planning to bug out but now they think it's safe to stick around.

Interesting that the 911 Prez surfaces to promote Hellcat. 

As for the Kennedy alliance -- is anyone surprised?

This generation of Kennedys are idiots but they are hedging their bets.

At the top there never was a Rep/Dem divide.

He showed his true colors when he bad mouthed the NRA back in the day. I wrote him off back then, and realized he and most (99%) of the Republican party might as well have been Left wing progressive money spending Dem's.

Jeb Bush is also supporting Gary Johnson from what I recall. How is Trump going to win the election when he can't even get the support of his own party?

That's an easy question. Trump will glide into office on the back of the true patriot vote train. Have any other questions?
