Bush Snr To Reagan : "Find The Kid A Job"

UPDATE : The quote below is a hoax. Snopes has more.

According to Global Research, the following is a direct quote from the published diaries of Ronald Reagan :
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."

George W. Bush as a contributing editor at the New Republic? Well, that turned out to be true, in a way.
