Looks Like A Duck, Quacks Like A Duck ... May Be A Chicken In Drag

Common Sense Commentary: Its no news to red, white and blue Conservative Patriots that the first Bush was, and apparently still is, 25 % Republican and 75% Democrat. This first George is what Conservatives mean when they refer to RINOs which means Republican In Name Only. If the truth were known, he is no more a Republican than Bloomberg. There seems always to be a Judas in Political Parties, Corporations, Armies and Churches. Even Jesus had one among the Apostles. There must be an important negative lesson there somewhere. This old Bush (older than me) is the primary reason I ceased calling myself a Republican, in favor of Independent. My earliest objections to him have never changed. His globalist mindset was first revealed when he spoke with religious sanctity of "A new world order", which he proposed would solve most of the world's problems. Brexit and Trump must have really rattled his old bones. I can only thank God Jeb Bush stumbled when he reached for his daddy's and brother's mantel. That being said, I would rather have had Jeb than Hillary who has no Conservative Patriotic or Christian tenancies whatever, but is an out and out Liberal Socialist Heretic. So, do I like the Republican choice for President ... Donald Trump? No, but I like him better than the devil or any Democrat Donkies I know of ... and all RINOs in Elephant disguise.  RB

George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary Clinton
A Kennedy outs a Bush who favors a Clinton.

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.

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.

Many former GOP officials from both Bush administrations have also announced their support for Clinton over Trump, including national security adviser Brent Scowcroft and former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez.

One Bush official who has taken Trump's side is former Vice President Dan Quayle, who told POLITICO in an interview this summer he was still holding out hope both Bushes would back Trump. "Clearly in their heart of hearts I should hope they would want a Republican president, but they can speak for themselves," Quayle said in an interview in July.
