Lost in the Bushes

By on 12.23.11 | 2:32PM

The "support" from Poppy Bush for Mitt Romney may do Romney more harm than good, at least among a large segment of Tea Partiers and other conservatives. If I were inclined to support Romney, it would make me less inclined to do so -- but then again, for the very reasons I am not well disposed to a Bush endorsement I am also not disposed toward Romney in the first place. The more the old-line East Coast establishment rallies around Romney, the less attractive he becomes -- if, that is, you believe he was attractive in the first place.

But nothing says "mushy lack of vision thing" more strongly than support from the elderBush.
