“I would like to clarify that after watching many of the debates, he was the candidate that made me laugh the least,” Mr. Bush explained. “I mean really, who the hell else is there? The first time I heard Rick Perry, I did a double take! It was like my son was running again! But then I asked myself, ‘how bad could Mr. Perry be’?

George W. Bush had this to say about the endorsement – “My daddy knows what he is doing, and after talking with my new neighbor, Glenn Beck, we are convinced that if Mitt is elected, he will maintain the spirit of our party and our ideals until the Rapture, which according to that movie we watched, is next year.”
House Speaker John Boehner is nonplussed at the announcement, but says that “as long as Mr. Romney continues his attack on President Obama and keeps up with the misquotes, I will whole-heartedly support him. And should he be discovered to have any affairs, I believe his nomination will be secured.”
