Politico: George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary

A Kennedy outs a Bush who favors a Clinton.

Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party's presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.

Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

George H.W. Bush rehabilitated Bill Clinton.

He invited him along during the Indian Ocean Tsunami relief.

I respect George H.W. Bush's service during WW2. I read "Flyboys".

A liberal pundit, McGrory or someone opined that he was such a bad pilot because he was shot down by anti-aircraft. It wasn't until years later that I learned the truth. The elder Bush was bombing ChiChi Jima which was the 'twin' of Iwo Jima. I had 25,000 or so troops on it. It was the radio communication hubs for the Japanese eastern bases.

The elder Bush was order along with others to used a plane design to launch torpedoes to launch 'glide bomb' attacks against a heavily defended Japanese base. The enemy knew they were coming and had already been attacked that way for hours. It was like going over the top of a trench, when you knew that they knew. Still ruch boy Bush went.

So I respect his service and revile the loathesome liberal pundits.

I do not respect Bush's economic & social policy acumen. A quarter of a century has not improved my opinion.

Either payback for his son's Jeb's defeat, old age, Grave's disease, patrician values or false patrician class consciousness is the reason he is doing this.

Whatever, done with them all except GWB. At least he stayed the course unlike Obama.
