Have the Bush’s Forgotten who Elected Them?

Oh boy. Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is not happy with the recent Bush family leak about who the aging patriarch, George H.W. Bush, would be voting for in the upcoming election. The Washington Examiner’s Byron York sat down with Senator Sessions, one of Donald Trump’s earliest and most important supporters, to discuss the Bush family’s decision to turn against the GOP in 2016. York asked the Senator about the recent rumor that former President George H.W. Bush admitted that he would be voting for Hillary Clinton in November.

“Well, I don’t know exactly where they are but millions of Americans, including this one, worked their hearts out for the Bushes in 1988, 1992, 2000, and 2004. And it wasn’t Bill Clinton that helped the Bushes get elected. It was the same voters, in large part, that elected Ronald Reagan and stand to elect Donald Trump…

I think they’re not thinking clearly enough about this. They’re not… appreciating half the American people, virtually, that have been supportive of Republicans. A lot of them preferred somebody other than Bush candidates, but they rallied around them when it came to November. So I would hope that we see more rallying.”

When York reminded Sessions that it wasn’t just the elder Bush who seemed to be bucking the party line, and that George W. and his brother Jeb, had refused to endorse or even offer any support for Donald Trump’s campaign, Session said he hoped that they would remember their own runs for political office.

I think they should remember the loyalty they were given by millions of Americans. They should objectively analyze who is likely to advance best the agenda they favor and the agenda the Republicans who supported them favored. And that’s clearly Donald Trump.”

Later in the interview, Sessions switched gears to the candidate himself. Sessions was one of the first (if not the first) major Republican politician to plant himself firmly in Donald Trump’s camp, and he hasn’t budged since…

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
