Large 1992 presidential campaign button with the caption "America Knew Harry Truman - Mr. Bush, You Are No Harry Truman" in red lettering, surrounding a black & white photo of President Truman.

The quote is a takeoff on Lloyd Bentsen's famous rispote to Dan Quayle ("Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy") in the 1988 vice presidential debate. During the 1992 Bush-Dukakis contest, George Bush Sr.'s strategy of likening himself to President Truman drew the ire of Truman's daughter, Margaret, who publicly chided him for it, refashioning the Bentsen quote.
2.5" diameter. Very good condition - please inspect the photos.

We will be listing more political memorabilia in the coming months, so please bookmark my shop and keep an eye on the listings. Thanks!
