After all, warmongers ought to stick together!
The man responsible for multiple wars, some of which lasting over 20 years, is poised to endorse fellow pro-war advocate Liz Cheney. The daughter of Dick Cheney, Bush’s right hand man, and architect of multiple Middle East wars, is struggling to gain support in her home state of Wyoming as the 2022 midterms loom.
Former President George W. Bush is throwing his fundraising support behind Rep. Liz Cheney in the race for Wyoming’s single U.S. House district, backing one of the ten Republican House members who sided with Democrats in voting to impeach former President Donald Trump.
It’s been reported one Bush’s first campaign events of the 2022 midterms will be a fundraiser to support Cheney.
Like Hunter Biden, George Bush has been busy with a burgeoning painting career. He’s largely remained under the raider in an attempt to cause amnesia for his many war crimes.
Trump endorsed Wyoming property rights attorney Harriet Hageman to challenge Cheney earlier this month.

Cheney is a daughter of Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney, and is one of the most outspoken critics of Trump. In return, Trump has called her a “warmongering fool” and a “horrible human being.”
Cheney voted to impeach Trump for incitement of insurrection following the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring the fact the former president did not call for violence or lawlessness. Rather, he continually called for peace as the chaos continued to unfold.
As far back as January the former president flagged the possibility of supporting Cheney as his war with the party that took him to power continues.

According to reports, Bush’s fundraiser is scheduled for Oct. 18 in Dallas with co-hosts to include Karl Rove, a longtime political adviser for Bush and former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who served as U.S. ambassador to NATO under Trump.
Other co-hosts cited in the report include former Hunt Oil Co. Chief Executive Ray Hunt, former Bush White House counsel Harriet Miers and former Bush White House counselor Karen Hughes.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a staunch ally of the former president, said during a campaign rally in Wyoming earlier this year Cheney has managed to do two things while in Congress: “Frustrate the agenda of President Trump and sell out to the forever war machine.”
