George Bush Sr. on Technology
President of the U.S., 1989-1993; Former Republican Rep. (TX)
Unfortunately, a NY Times reporter wrote a story under the headline "Bush Encounters the Supermarket, Amazed." He went after Dad for not understanding how a basic scanner worked. Dad's political opponents seized on the piece to support their own attacks against my father as being out of touch, and soon this nasty fairy tale was dominating the airwaves.
My father-in-law, George Koch, is a former president of the Grocery Manufacturers of America, and noted: "President Bush was one of the greatest listeners that we've ever had. He would never say, 'Look, I know all this.' The reporter mistook his polite and personal way of listening with not being knowledgeable."
