Filp-Flopping Bush Endorses Romney

In a move that should surprise no one, George H. W. Bush has endorsed Romney for president. Is this really an asset for Mitt or will it be the final nail in the coffin of his candidacy? After all, the main thing people remember about the elder Bush is his failure to keep his pledge not to raise taxes.

This can’t possibly play well with the republican voters that Romney needs to win over. Romney supporters are trying to make flip-flopping a sign of flexibility, but do they really believe that making and breaking pledges to voters is going to go very well.

The statements of Romeny and the elder Bush were very similar in their stridency. When Bush said “read my lips” it was much like Romney’s statement about decades of support for Roe versus Wade (see video below). The problem isn’t that Bush or Romney changed their minds, the problem is that both of them changed thier positions on whims after making seemingly-ironclad statements.

After all, if we can’t trust them to honor these “unbreakable” promises, what can we trust them on? Who knows? Maybe Bush will change his mind again and endorse someone else.
