Independence, Missouri - (Archive Press): Documents stored in the Presidential Library and Museum of Harry S Truman are to be published early next year dealing with what the 33rd President of the United States thought of the Bush family, in particular former CIA head George Herbert Bush and current White House incumbent George Walker Bush.
"It ain't pretty what President Truman thought of these assholes," a curatorial source said today.
"During his lifetime Truman met all the Bush tribe members in various circumstances.
"Hell, his family even sued - successfully, I might add! - most of the Bushes at one time or another, although this mostly took place after his death in 1972," the archivist continued.
"Truman was a straight-shooting realist and tough as old boots.
"And he always warned that the rot in the GOP and to some extent in his own party the Democrats was strongly connected to mobster cartels which the Bush family ran.
"We have some historical archives of President Truman and his wife Bess Wallace Truman taken at the wake for Sir Winston Churchill, which we will be making public early next year.
"The Trumans were guests of honor at Churchill's January 1965 funeral in London which took place at Westminster Abbey.
"Later at Winfield House, the American Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, Truman delivered a pithy eulogy to his wartime friend and ally who became his trusted confidante during the cold war years.
"This footage has never been seen in public before so we feel it will be of immense interest to everybody.
"At the end of his speech the camera was somehow still left rolling.
"Truman's god-daughter, aged about seven, was filmed asking the Great Man what he thought about "that horrid Mr Bush" and his equally foul "eldest son".
"'Why my dear, they're both rascals!' Truman replied.
"But before he could elaborate further, his wife Bess summed up what in her opinion many even in those days thought about the younger Bush:
"'What the President really means is that craven young Bushlet ought to be horse-whipped', Bess exclaimed.
"'And what's more there's plenty in the Grand Old Party that would agree with that statement!' the lady concluded.
"The cameras rolled on for a minute or two, the sound becoming muffled as Truman found a few typical adjectives to describe the Bush family which fortunately for some, have been obscured from the recording. But which may have sounded suspiciously like 'F***ing B*!**!"**! etc'
