Reagan's Take on Bush

From YellowDogJim in the comments section at FireDogLake:

May 17, 1986:

'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.'

~ Ronald Reagan diaries

Ronnie sure had George W Bush pegged - too bad Nancy didn't release the diaries until after Bush was in the White House.
