Bush may endorse McCain Wednesday

CNN's Dana Bash reports that if John McCain surpasses the 1,191-delegate mark this evening - the number required to claim the GOP nomination - President Bush may officially endorse his presidential bid as soon as tomorrow.

A second GOP source familiar with these plans tells CNN McCain will go to the White House for the endorsement.

    Let them both wrap themselves in the flag and say, "The War is Over" Then say that anyone who doesn't want to spend our way out of a future by staying in Iraq for a hundred years is "not patriotic" Lots of macho testosterone for the Viagra crowd. They deserve each other

    If Clinton wins the Democratic primary and Obama doesn't run as an independent I will vote for McCain as a Democrat

    Anybody else get the feeling that McCain is going to be easily defeated by the eventual Democrat Candidate? Honestly, John McCain doesn't have a single motivating bone in his body. Clearly Barrack Obama would destroy him as far as speaches and debates go..... even Hilary Clinton is more motivating than McCain, and she scares me..... I believe Republicans just sealed their fate.... I am an independent voter and i can tell you right now.... Huckabee I would have voted for..... McCain just lost the white house for the Republicans.... Watch the Democrat primary..... because i guarantee the winner of that is our next president.

    I wonder if folks (or even if McCain) knows how ridiculous he looks giving a speech about anything.

    How bout a McCain/Rove ticket?

    How bout a McCain/Hillary ticket?

    How bout a McCain/Limbaugh ticket?

    How bout a McCain/Alan Keyes ticket?

    How about a McCain/Hanutty ticket?

    Think about it! Any of these choices would be an improvement over Bush/Cheney!

    NMcCain nails the nomination tonight. Bush is going to endorse McCain tomorrow. I might be missing something here, but does he have any other choices? Who else would he nominate?

    Oh wait, this is Bush we're talking about. He COULD endorse Clinton or Obama...

    Sen. McCain may be good in security and defence area, but what American need is an economist surgeon.

    We'd be going to the mumbling mugger from the midget bumbler. McCain has a lot of fraud in his backround involving financial companies. Not what we need right now. McCain has said if the war in iraq has to last 100 more years, so be it. I don't think his therapy must have taken, or even existed if he feels that evil and uncompetent. May god do it right this time. This country will not last with four more years of bullcrappy.

    Thank God King George spoke of leaving office today. After 7 years of imperialist B.S. from him and Cheney I thought perhaps they would use executive authority to declare themselves King and Co-King for Life. What a relief to learn that Their Highnesses will vacate in favor of their heir, Prince McCain.
