After the debate and the recent endorsement of Biden by Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, it’s now time for former President George W. Bush to finally put an end to the Trump presidency by endorsing Joe Biden for President — and in doing so, save the country and the GOP from itself.

According to a New York Times report in the summer, Bush won’t support Trump’s reelection. A spokesman for Bush later told the Texas Tribune that the report was “completely made up” and that the former president “is retired from presidential politics and has not indicated how he will vote.” But here’s why it is so important for Bush to come forward and announce his unwavering support for Biden.

Some might say that the former president no longer represents today’s GOP as it has been more than a decade since he was in office. But with 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney having been sidelined ever since he voted to impeach Trump in the Senate, the responsibility now rests squarely upon the shoulders of the former two-term President to set right a country that has found itself adrift. With the passing of his father, George W. Bush is the senior statesman of the Republican Party, and the only one who can guide it back to a more reasonable place from oblivion.
