(CNN) - Dan Quayle will throw his support behind GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Tuesday, CNN has confirmed.
The former Republican vice president, who served with former President George H.W. Bush, will make the announcement alongside Romney at an event in suburban Phoenix.
The endorsement comes a week after Romney met with Bush and his wife Barbara at their Houston-area home.
Quayle's son, Ben, is a congressman representing Arizona.
Dan Quayle had to get permission to endorse Mittens. He is all potatoes and no meat,
Well then, I guess Romney's got a lock on the nomination now.
A good way to drive elected republicans crazy is to buy only American made products this Christmas. That should really anger the foreign corporations that bribe the GOP.
Compared to George W. Bush, Dan Quayle is a genius. He was one of the worst VPs though.
Don't worry about Quale endorsing Romney. He just can't spell Gengrich or Bachman
Who really cares?
Dan Quail is an idiot. Nobody cares who he endorses.
Whoa, real powerhouse endorsement here! Getting his endorsement is like my three-week old puppy endorsing me for Pope even though I'm Buddhist.
yeah, that's someone that I want backing me. HAHAHAH!!!!!
An endorsement by Dan Quayle. One would think it i more of a lliability than any advantage.
Stupid is as stupid does...
BOTH are stupid and clueless. Williard just pretends to be smart.
Great stuff. Are you sure you want his support, Mittens? You are already falling in the polls – no sense in speeding up the process.
Quayle was on the receiving end of the best debate zinger of all time when he compared himself to Jack Kennedy.
Quoting Senator Bentsen loosely: "I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."
@stranger in an increasingly strange land... you can't spell Gingrich either. So stupid and funny. ... hahahahaha..
You have got to to be kidding!! Romney needs Quayle's endorsement like he needs a hole in his head!! Dan Quayle is an idiot whose endorsement is of no substantial value and is in fact, a kiss of death to Romney's campaign or anyone's else's campaign for that matter.
Who cares what he thinks?
yikes! now if he could just get Palin in line he'll have the idiot vote for sure!
This just in: Chubby McWhogivesacrap, the former White House head janitor will endorse Herman Cain. "If Dan Quayle can make a meaningless endorsement, than I can too."
One more from the Bush Dynasty to back Romney. A vote for Romney is a return to Bush policies.
I am not so sure I would want that endorsement.
