As the bucks is a little gonna go right to you president Herbert walker bush is office in Houston -- endorsing.
-- -- -- John which is not too long -- six years but I really think it's most important to.
George just tuned to election -- Thank you coming from the president and First Lady I'm honored to have your endorsement and your support.
-- the president indicated that we've been friends for some time.
My parents were also friends of the president and the First -- and having your support means a great deal to me -- a personal basis.
The family basis and also on a national basis.
I agree with the First Lady that this is a critical election.
It's a -- election about the course of America.
And I think -- a very dangerous path.
And I think it's important for us to select the nominee and to get -- with a great campaign which will focus on two very different visions for America.
The one presented by.
And -- that would be presented by me if I become the nominee.
So that the American people can have a very clear understanding.
Of the path that of where the the -- would lead depending on who they elect as president.
So I look forward to.
In honoring that endorsement by winning.
And I have a big day coming up next Tuesday.
Where with elections in Wisconsin.
Maryland and the District of Columbia.
I hope to get to a good number of delegates from those three contests.
And -- and B on my way to.
To secure the nomination.
And taking on the president.
And so with.
With your endorsement get -- good boost.
For those contests and and also here in Texas I'm told they they know you guys pretty well here.
Things have been here long.
And -- you do well here.
I'm convinced of that well I -- I look forward in this process and appreciate your help Brenda and we'll see the rest of you on the trail.
Bush when yeah.
I you know I I haven't met with.
President George W.
Bush we speak from time to time.
Thank all the time is -- live at least -- fall back on this video and -- yeah.
I don't know.
-- Home this morning -- the -- and there's.
-- Thank you.
Spots you think -- do you judge doze off their for a moment -- I -- -- -- I just -- in a moment and yes big surprise.
Outside a big surprise -- George Herbert Walker Bush and we we know mrs.
Are the kinds of Republican leaders that what this thing over and -- if I were them.
I would get out and do it Jeb do last week it's time for the but I notice -- Adelson has said it's over for -- a big deal.
-- super -- is gonna continue to go I suppose -- go to the convention.
But I just think that it's reality in and it's it should then under normal presidential rules.
These frustration over a month and a half ago and -- lassie Ozzie endorsements in primaries.
Probably matter in the general election -- don't matter -- ago.
First Lady was on the show a couple of months you'll maybe a month ago or senate -- she said you know and he's the guy and she's very fit the.
She was very proud -- -- and I -- it was -- for president the other aspect for the president.
-- for for 41 night but president adding it's a good and significant development if you're the Romney team thinking.
OK we're up one step closer today but I also think that the Marco Rubio endorsement last night in of some people thought was a little -- -- also significant.
It's huge and do we think you think this is actually -- to -- the give a message didn't what I call routes which is companies have -- and -- I don't know if route is actually listening very well they seem pretty -- to stay in the race but as Bob said in the if the money runs out for -- it's going to be very tough for him to stay in the race.
But I do think in the GOP not just the GOP everyone sitting at this table once this thing wrapped up already and I think you're gonna hear the crescendo start to get louder.
But this is an -- endorsement I mean we're getting close to Texas this is meaningful they're going to be a primary in Texas the other and and I think the -- endorsement.
Though as Dana mentioned Luke warm and and late in the game -- -- the real political courage comes when you endorse him early.
But I think it is significant.
It would end this saves a -- coming -- California New Jersey Pennsylvania.
Texas big states we you lot of money to do it and since RS no money -- Arab Romney does Gingrich has done.
I suspected they had those states that put -- -- without.
How is Andrea how is Santorum doing in Pennsylvania which is your home state which I haven't seen much of lately it's going to be tough.
It's going to be very tough for him I mean this is a state that he lost and he lost by double digits.
Now he lost by conservative Democrats Bob Casey who is pro life Democrat what I can pretty unicorn because -- they -- they really exist.
But I think it's going to be very tough for him particularly when he doesn't have the money.
To be competitive at any time these BC the president thinks -- to inch up in these polls.
You see Republicans get very -- -- -- got and this thing and Romney's favorite is not meant to win here eight next come upcoming states and the only.
When you're hearing lately with the endorsements -- but -- -- high profile endorsements are are Mitt Romney right now -- gallons lining up on Santorum Gingrich you know that's the other thing about inevitable the other at a Pennsylvania is it really is -- more moderate Republican electorate saint -- been winning it is conservative but the collar counties around Philadelphia are more moderate more.
The more kind of demographics around -- as well and I would be surprised to see Santorum -- his own state and if he doesn't win there which is argument.
I mean at that point.
I would imagine -- if you look at these these wanted to go -- -- I think I'm making -- over the top by the enemy.
What do you know we've had it with Jeb Bush.
-- the did the dad.
Any other -- it's.
That brought us -- Laura Bush -- yeah what about the band bush Laurent.
In a band with Gavin Rossdale yeah British -- he didn't vote mr.
Reggie Bush Reggie Bush ready actually investing they.
Let us a question that the reporter asked was.
The one question was -- -- -- -- talk to outside George w.'s endorsement.
And and President Bush 43 said he's not going to endorse before that primary so that's a good question.
For the and -- really say events blockade -- yeah.
-- it's a great guy in the rat out for yes please and I write about I got here at.
I think -- people what what thing is up next if you leave now I won't endorse you.
