HOUSTON (CNN) - Former President Bush endorsed Sen. John McCain for the presidency on Monday, saying, "No one is better prepared to lead our nation at these trying times than Senator John McCain."
"Few men walking among us have sacrificed so much in the cause of human freedom," he added.
Daddy Bush is the reason we're in this mess in Iraq. The Gulf war, we were two miles from Bagdad. GW went into fix daddys mistake. The stability of the region was the excuse Bush senior used, how stable is it now?
Congratulations Sen. McCain! He is already uniting the party and will be ready for the general election. He must win this election. America cannot afford his losing. Come on Sen. McCain! You are the best we have out there....by far.
I loved watching those two shuffle up to the podium like they had a big load in their pants...( depends)
McCain was and is wrong on two absurd wars ... keep in mind the folly he was bombing for that lead him to the Hanoi Hilton. His personal strength, resolve and patriotism are unquestionable, but his judgment and temperment are sorely lacking! Even people fighting in unjust wars are capable of great valor, but displaying valor is not synonymous with being right! Sorry John ... you are not fit to be president ... we simply don't need a warmonger even if he is a hero!!
If Obama should get the Democratic nomination, I as well as a lot of Democrats will be voting for McCain.
With GW Bush backing him at least I know what to expect. Obama will destroy this country with his lack of experience. Heck, he doesn't even have an original idea for his speeches.
Two Bushes as endorsers, if this idiot wins, we deserve to become a third world country, which is the path we're headed on.
Thanks Bush for the kiss of death... not that it is needed though.
If you want eight more years of Bush, a guy who has a hot temper, uses foul language, Vote for JOHN McCain.
Look here guys. McCain was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for 5 YEARS. This guy is tough. He will be able to handle our domestic and foreign national crises. He will handle them honorably as well.
I'm glad that former president Bush has endorsed him. Why don't all of the Republicans and Smart Democrats get behind him as well.
I do not know if this will help McCain or not – but I am certain that saying that we will be in Irag for 100 years will not – I cannot vote for a man who thinks this way. So for me it is OBAMA in 08.
Most people say that they want a commander in chief to have had military experience. I suppose John McCain fits that bill except wasn't he just someone who took orders?
What do you expect? Who cares what any Bush says or does? They should all go away and hang their heads in shame
Read my lips........"No one is better......." No surprise here. Either man would say anything to be elected. "No new taxes", and now McCain has decided torture is hunky-dory in spite of a long stand against this barbarism on moral and practical grounds (it does not work). All this because he wants to convince Republican (i.e. "Christian")fundamentalists (our moral equivalent of Muslim fundamentalists) that he can be every bit as 'conservative' as they. So much for "Straight Talk"........what a hypocrite.

Re: Richard, FL
My apologies as I did mention the incorrect year of 1988 – You are correct, it was 1993 which President Clinton was in office. Question...what did he do for the US at that time? Nothing...
As for Sane Texan: I am far from an idiot republican. Working most of my life, and never getting a hand out.... I can see the writing on the wall.
I the nominee can be decided by the will of the super-delegets, what is the point of the people, why do bother to vote.
McCain, go leave a happy life, your old days are over.
