    You know the Democrats can't wait to trot out Clinton.

    So why didn't the Republicans have Bush speak and give Romney his endorsement? :dunno:

    Bush is a serious negative and chain around the republican party.

    Nah - we love him.

    It's the Dems that can't stand him.

    But that's OK.

    They hate President Romney too.

    Who gives a fuck?

    Bush Sr should have been a highlighted speaker

    He is the parties only connection to Ron Reagan and they treat him like dirt

    From you link:

    The Bush name and legacy are noticeably absent from the 2012 Republican convention. The former president unceremoniously announced he was skipping the affair months ago. Dick Cheney, the former vice president who remains more revered among the core national-security minded conservative set, isn't speaking, either. Bush's brother, Jeb, the former Republican governor of Florida, will address the crowd. As will Bush's former secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice. But they're expected to address specific policy issues, mainly education, rather than defend their brethren and their former boss.
