Former president George W. Bush is going to do fundraising for Wyoming RINO Liz Cheney.
This signifies the end of an era in conservative politics. Millions of Americans who defended George W. Bush from the left for years will no longer do so. He has sided with the system and betrayed people who once supported him.
His help may not matter anyway. Cheney is a toxic figure.
Breitbart News reports:
George W. Bush to Fundraise for Liz Cheney Reelection Bid
Former President George W. Bush is throwing his fundraising support behind Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) 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.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday one Bush’s first campaign events of the 2022 midterms will be a fundraiser to support Cheney.
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.”
As Breitbart News reported, 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.
What a disappointment.

Bush is going to find himself with a lot fewer allies over this.
