George H.W. Bush: Romney’s my favorite in 2012

posted at 1:24 pm on November 23, 2010 by Allahpundit

Short of a crown physically being placed on Mitt’s head, this is as close as we’re likely to get to an official coronation of him as the establishment choice in the primaries. I was giggling while watching it, trying to imagine his reaction as the most RINO-y president of modern times gives him a very public thumbs up, but actually this shouldn’t hurt much. The base is already lost to him thanks to RomneyCare, so the best he can hope for now is to consolidate his position among centrists/anti-Palinists. And the Bushes did him a major solid on that front: Not only do they both talk him up, but when pressed on other candidates they like, they mentioned only Pawlenty, Haley Barbour, and Bobby Jindal (who almost certainly isn’t running). The omission of Mitch Daniels, a potential genuine threat to Romney, is conspicuous given Daniels’s service in Dubya’s administration. I wonder if that was mere absent-mindedness or a deliberate snub. Ah well. No mystery, though, as to why they failed to mention Palin; Barbara’s contempt for her, in particular, is obvious.

Incidentally, now that we’ve got the Bushes sniping at her and Karl Rove criticizing her show and her fans, does that make this hotly disputed Daily News piece from earlier this month any more credible? Palin supporters bristled at the idea that Dubya might have been privately critical of her, but I’m not sure why. Tea partiers are forever reminding us that the movement is as much a reaction to Bush 43 as it is to Obama; if the man behind TARP and years of ballooning deficits doesn’t think much of Palin, that only proves her conservative cred, no?

Romney is very definitely in the GHWB mold of detached, northeastern gentile Republicanism, of the sort that is on life support in most jurisdictions. Mitt is quite the chameleon, but I think this is his true niche.

Oh and…

TheBigOldDog on November 23, 2010 at 1:29 PM

I know the base is unforgiving about RomneyCare but I still think Romney is the likely nominee. The election will be about economic issues and Romney is well positioned as the most credible of the bigtime Republican candidates on economic issues. He can sidestep RomneyCare by strongly condemning ObamaCare and calling for an outright repeal – and vowing to sign a reapeal into law once he’s president.

If the top three candidates end up being 2008 retreads, I thik it’s Romney. If we want someone else, we better get busy recruiting some strong contenders who were not in the 08 mix. And we better get to it quickly.

I don’t know what it really is.

I’m confused by it frankly

What a shock that the uber RINO doesn’t understand the Tea Party. Neither do most DC insiders.

who can respect other people’s ideas

I am wondering if these are shots at Palin or just conservatives in general.

He’s been very pleasant to me

A decent, decent man

He’s a good man. He’s a decent man

Sounds just like John McCain. Maybe they should vote for him.

I am not going to criticise her (Michelle Obama).

That same courtesy is not however extended to conservatives is it?

sharrukin on November 23, 2010 at 1:43 PM

It figures he’d like Romney.

FloatingRock on November 23, 2010 at 1:44 PM

Bush 41 is respected by most conservatives of various stripes and by establishment republicans as well, but I can’t imagine anyone on our side broadly speaking waiting with baited-breath on “who is George Herbert Bush hoping for or endorsing for Pres in 2012?” Very few conservative are going to hate Barbara for dishing Palin, but it does strengthen Palin’s supporters to not let the establishment win this time. This will not help their favorite potential candidates at all.

mwbri on November 23, 2010 at 1:44 PM

Dear Mr. Bush,

Thank you for sharing. Mr. Romney is not ever going to get my vote. I will never, ever vote again for a country club RINO. I will only give my vote to someone worthy.

hmmm have you been around for the last couple decades. bush’s new world order his NAFTA, open borders RINoism has not given him a lot of respect with conservatives. He was the lesser of two evils and then in 1992 we voted his butt out. the only reason his son got elected is because he told the people he was not like his father. He was a compassionate conservative. Key word conservative. GW understood that without mending fences with conservative he could not win. thos efences were destroyed in 2005 and hence bush’s 25% approval rating when he left office.
