Birthplace of George W Bush
Connecticut apologizes. So does Yale.
So does Reagan
"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."
From the REAGAN DIARIES...this entry is dated May 17, 1986.
NOTE: I'm informed that the above quote that is circulating in Cyberspace did not appear in any "Reagan Diary." It appeared in a Michael Kinsley article in The New Republic in which Kinsley imagined what Reagan's reaction to young George W. Bush would have been. Althought the quote cannot be attributed to Reagan, there is a great element of truth in it! Reagan might well have thought the thoughts attributed to him by Kinsley.
