“He Was Born With A Silver Foot In His Mouth”
Former Democratic Texas governor Ann Richards gained notoriety at the 1988 Democratic National Convention, where she delivered a keynote speech that made her a national political figure, on her way to winning the 1990 Texas gubernatorial election.
What made her speech so memorable was a direct insult of the Republican presidential nominee, George H.W. Bush.
“Poor George, he can’t help it,” Richards said at the DNC in Atlanta. “He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.”
