    Bush: "I probably won't even vote for McCain."

    Bush: “I probably won’t even vote for McCain” | Westminster Blog: The latest on UK politics | FT.com

    Money Quote:

    “I probably won’t even vote for the guy,” Bush told the group, according to two people present.“I had to endorse him. But I’d have endorsed Obama if they’d asked me.”
    Yeah. Read that one a few times until it sinks in. Bush would have endorsed Obama, were it not for political constraints.

    So is he no longer an idiot?

    I don't believe that's changed. I consider making this statement in front of our british allies and members of the british media to be pretty idiotic.

    But nice try at a strawman...

    What do you think Bush was thinking?

    McCain was GWB's direct opponent in the Republican primary in 2000. The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

    That doesn't make any sense, because they weren't competing for anything at this point. If anything McCain, and Bush were on the same team. I find Bush's comment rather strange to be honest.

    He's out of the game - I'm sure he could care less and is probably relieved.

    Next thing we know he'll be support Prop-19!!

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Just bizarre, really. Hence my need to post it so we could all speculate--wildly.

    If it's true, heads are exploding all over the place.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."
