No big surprise here.
Bush Senior will vote for Hillary Clinton.
On Monday Politico reported:
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.
It really is amazing how easily rank and file Democrats and Republicans are fooled by the false left-right paradigm. Many Democrats, while not thrilled by the choice of Hillary Clinton, have decided to vote for her because they believe anything is better than a Republican in the White House.
Bush Senior’s decision is another example that there is virtually no difference between establishment Republicans and Democrats.
In four years blinkered Democrats will be allowed to once again participate in the rigged political system. Let’s hope by then some of them figure it out.
