George W. Bush Wades Into 2012 Waters, Applauds Paul Ryan

Making a rare foray into 2012 politics, former President George W. Bush announced his support for Mitt Romney’s decision to name Paul Ryan as his running mate.

“This is a strong pick,” Bush said in a statement released by the Romney campaign.  Governor Romney is serious about confronting the long-term challenges facing America, and Paul Ryan will help him solve the difficult issues that must be addressed for future generations.”

Bush declined to endorse Romney in a high profile manner. While entering an elevator this May, a reporter from ABC News asked the former President about the 2012 race.

“I’m for Mitt Romney,” Bush reportedly said.

Bush has previously announced that he will not be attending the 2012 Republican convention.
