"Bush: 'I probably won't even vote for McCain' "

... And said that "two people present" during a 2008 visit to the Oval Office by British dignitaries claimed Bush also said, "I'd have endorsed Obama if they'd asked me." ...

... There's this:

" 'This is ridiculous and untrue,' Bush spokesman David Sherzer told Politico. 'President Bush proudly supported John McCain in the election and voted for him.' "
