Though he’ll have to pull a Falwell to appease the angry wingnut mouthpieces and flat-earthers that comprise the GOP’s lunatic base, those bunch of crooks that gave you the past 8 years is firmly behind St. McCain.
WALLACE: Is John McCain a true conservative?
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Absolutely. I know him well. I know his convictions. I know the principles that drive him and no doubt in my mind he is a true conservative…Look, he is very strong on national defense. He is tough fiscally. He believes the tax cuts ought to be permanent. He is pro-life. His principles are sound and solid as far as I’m concerned.
Jeb Bush endorsed McCain, saying in a statement, "John McCain is a patriot and devoted conservative leader. Like no other candidate in the field, John McCain has made tremendous sacrifices for this nation. He is beholden to no interest other than that of the public good. He is determined and steadfast in his commitment to reducing the burden of high taxes, restoring the people’s trust in their government, and winning the war against radical Islamic extremists. It is with pride that I announce my endorsement of John McCain for president."
Former top Bush adviser Karl Rove recently sent McCain a $2,300 check…McCain said he would welcome Rove’s counsel as he tries to wrap up the GOP nomination and take on the Democrats. "Nobody denies that he’s one of the smartest political minds in America," the senator said. "I’d be happy to get his advice."
If you want another 4 years of Bush, St. McCain’s your man.
