"My father crapped bigger ones than George Bush," says the former president's son, in a flame-throwing conversation about the war and the Bush
administration's efforts to lay claim to the Reagan legacy.

April 14, 2003 | The Bush inner circle would like to think of George W.'s presidency as more of an extension of Ronald Reagan's than of his
one-term father's. Reagan himself, who has long suffered from Alzheimer's disease, is unable to comment on those who lay claim to his political
legacy. But his son, Ron Jr., is -- and he's not pleased with the association.
"The Bush people have no right to speak for my father, particularly because of the position he's in now," he said during a recent interview with
Salon. "Yes, some of the current policies are an extension of the '80s. But the overall thrust of this administration is not my father's -- these
people are overly reaching, overly aggressive, overly secretive, and just plain corrupt. I don't trust these people."
