Former U.S. President George W. Bush reportedly unloaded on his home state senator and former policy adviser, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, this past weekend with remarks to Denver donors. “I just don’t like the guy,” the elder Bush said, according to Politico.
Cruz tried to keep it classy in his rejoinder, with a statement to Fox News:
“I have great respect for George W. Bush, and was proud to work on his 2000 campaign and in his administration It’s no surprise that President Bush is supporting his brother and attacking the candidates he believes pose a threat to his campaign. I have no intention of reciprocating. I met my wife Heidi working on his campaign, and so I will always be grateful to him.”
If the republican nominee is to be based on campaign strategy, the award so far has to go to Donald Trump. He performed a tremendous rope-a-dope on Jeb Bush, so much so that GWB had to be called for moral, if not campaign, support. Trump is on to other topics today while the Bush’ are still trying to figure out what happened. George Foreman is certainly in good company now.
