G.W. Bush would have destroyed the campaign if he had started publicly stumping for Romney. Bush and the rest of his liberal Republicans left an 8 year foul taste in the mouths of Americans. Bush staying out of this is the only reason Romney got 32 percent of registered Republicans to vote. If Bush was endorsing and campaigning for him it would have been far less. Start calling this what it really is. Republican voters won't go to the polls and vote for liberals. The Republican party will continue to lose until they start nominating conservatives. The Republican voters have made it clear. They will go to the polls and vote only when they have a conservative choice. This is how they got the House in 2010.
