President Bush swaggers and smirks and cuts a generally tough image. But, as he noted when accepted the Republican nomination, it is his mother who really kicks Bush and takes names.
George H.W. Bush, speaking in Columbus in support of his son's re-election, shared an illustrative annecdote.
Shortly after winning election four years ago, the president had returned to the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, from a jog and had propped his feet up on a table, according to his father.
`` `George, get your feet off the table!' '' Barbara Bush told her son.
``Barb,'' the elder Bush reminded his wife, ``he's the president of the United States.''
`` `Then he should know better than that.' ''
Isn't it interesting how little things can tell you a lot about a person?
