Breaking News: Dubya Endorses Willard ... In an Elevator

George W Bush, late of the Oval Office, has finally announced that he supports Willard's Presidential bid. In short, Dubya has endorsed Willard.

The former President endorsement for the presumptive Republican nominee on Tuesday evening and was given by Bush from the confines of an elevator in downtown Washington as the doors shut.

Yes, you read that right. Bush endorsed Willard in an elevator. No public announcement, no attending press (save the reporter from The Washington Post who shouted out the question, Luke Russert-style, as the doors snapped shut.

Bush may be many things, but he still is the last Republican occupant of the White House and served two terms. His endorsement of the presumptive nominee would carry weight and gravitas ... but he chose to endorse the man from the confines of an elevator.

Could the Republicans be more reluctant in their support of a candidate? Even with echoes of same-sex marriage floating in the air?

In the meantime, it's mete to remember that, although George Bush may be many things (and I'm certainly no fan of the man's), he's the only Republican who's shown the current any modicum of respect. When goaded to comment on the current Administration, Bush famously demurred, saying:-

“I’m not going to spend my time criticizing him. There are plenty of critics in the arena. He deserves my silence. . . . I think it is essential that he be helped in office.”

All the while, Willard's out on the stump, praising up Bill Clinton's infamous Second Inaugural remarks about the era of big government being finished.

This is going to be a strange election.
