28. Willard Romney is the latest member of the Family.
Thanks for the kind words, EOO. Spreading the truth about these traitors is what they fear most. Otherwise they find new fronts or morph or marry into new families...

Jeb Bush steers advisers toward Romney

While not committing himself, points others to Republicans camp

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Jeb Bush, who hasnt publicly picked a favorite in the Republican presidential race, privately is talking up the candidacy of Mitt Romney and steering some of his closest advisers to the campaign.

The former Florida governor has said repeatedly he wont be a candidate in 2008 despite encouragement from his father, the former president, and his brother, the current one. But Jeb Bushs support, even tacit, would be critical in the state that decided the 2000 presidential election.

Governor Bush said, Before you commit, I want you to meet Mitt Romney. He is the kind of guy you will like no matter what, said former Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings. The governor was very candid about the fact that he really liked this guy.

Jennings, the woman Bush chose as his lieutenant governor, is one of several former Bush confidantes in the Romney camp. Others include his hand-picked, former state party chairman Al Cardenas, and Sally Bradshaw, Bushs former campaign manager and chief of staff.

Now on Romneys payroll, these former Bush stalwarts are working to help the candidate overcome his lack of name identification in Florida. A recent statewide Quinnipiac poll of Republicans showed Romney in single digits compared to Sen. John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich, who has not announced his candidacy.

Then there's all the CIA - Blackwater types, like Cofer Black, working with Mitt that give me pause.

Counterterror is just the latest warmonger money-maker.
