Well, many of us have always suspected George Herbert Walker Bush of being a real phony. Now, here's proof.
It seems like in 1988, during his campaign against Michael Dukakis, George H.W. Bush had to help coach his wife Babara on how they should look lovingly at each other on camera.
In a memo to his wife, Bush wrote:
"Sweetsie. Please look at how Mike and Kitty do it. Try to be closer in more - well, er, romantic - on camera. I am practicing the loving look, and the creeping hand. Yours for better TV and more demonstrable affection. Your sweetie pie coo coo. Love ya, GB."
This exchange between the Bushes has been re-printed in My Dear President: Letters Between Presidents and Their Wives, a book that chronicles the more private side of our nation's first families.
