Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. It is being reported that the senior Bush, George HW, will vote for Hillary.
Look, if GHWB wants to vote for Hillary, that’s his right but what I find disgraceful is his pleasure in making this known. In my opinion, he has a duty to the Republican party that elected him and his son to the highest job in the land. He may hate that Trump destroyed Jeb, I get that, and I get that he bristles at the mere thought of voting for Trump, but where I think he’s overstepped his bounds is making his view public.
The higher ground is to say nothing. Don’t endorse Trump if that makes him ill, but to state that he plans to cast his vote for a Democrat, that’s heresy in my book from a former republican president.
The mainstream media is drooling over this announcement and running with the narrative that even former Republican presidents aren’t down with The Donald.
Me? Thanks for asking. I’ve gone from an eyeroll vote for Trump to being a cheerleader and believer. Please make him get through the debates without embarrassment. Please.
In case you are wondering, I slept like a log last night, air conditioning on. I feel chipper today so if you’ve got something to complain about, bring it on. I can handle the truth. Can you??
