Former President George H.W. Bush endorsed Mitt Romney for the second time.  This endorsement, timed to coincide with Marco Rubio’s endorsement to send the theme that old leaders and new leaders of the GOP are rallying around Romney.  Even if Romney is trotting out old endorsements to support Romney’s narrative.

In support of Mitt Romney, George H.W. Bush cited that great political philosopher Kenny Rogers:

“I do think it’s time for the party to get behind Gov. Romney. And she was reminding me Kenny Rogers sang, ‘It’s time when to hold ‘em and time when to fold ‘em,’” Bush said, loosely quoting a lyric from the famous song, “The Gambler.”

However Santorum Spokesman J. Hogan Gidley one upped the former President with an even more relevant line:

“We have huge respect for President George H.W. Bush and he is one of my personal political heroes,” Gidley said, “but my favorite line from that song is ‘there’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.”

It’s rare for a pop culture reference to be parried so well, but Gidley did well, particularly with the two campaigns’ competing delegate math.
