Thats a pretty cruel joke
If Bush endorsed Ron Paul, I would have to take a good long look at my political beliefs and ask myself "am I an idiot?"

My feelings are, If Ron Paul don't get elected for POTUS, then the US citizens deserves what ever erosion of freedoms and liberties, and also wealth and jobs, that anyone else would bring. The only other candidate even half worth anything is Romney. Obama can not win again, anything and everything must be done to stop his policies, their killing us and destroying the fabric of America. America only has a very few years left before we go the way of the USSR when they collapsed
In 1824, John Quincy Adams was elected president despite not winning either the popular vote or the electoral vote. Andrew Jackson was the winner in both categories. Jackson received 38,000 more popular votes than Adams, and beat him in the electoral vote 99 to 84. Despite his victories, Jackson didn’t reach the majority 131 votes needed in the Electoral College to be declared president. In fact, neither candidate did. The decision went to the House of Representatives, which voted Adams into the White House.
In 1876, Rutherford B. Hayes won the election (by a margin of one electoral vote), but he lost the popular vote by more than 250,000 ballots to Samuel J. Tilden.
In 1888, Benjamin Harrison received 233 electoral votes to Grover Cleveland’s 168, winning the presidency. But Harrison lost the popular vote by more than 90,000 votes.
In 2000, George W. Bush was declared the winner of the general election and became the 43rd president, but he didn’t win the popular vote either. Al Gore holds that distinction, garnering about 540,000 more votes than Bush. However, Bush won the electoral vote, 271 to 266.

George W. Bush endorses Ron Paul
You panicked for a minute didn't you?
I would have to agree. JV would put them all in their place.

Maybe he's taking Jesse Ventura up on his offer and running as an Independent ? I could really get behind that team ...
