Information I have found on the internet indicates it may have been said originally about George H. W. Bush (a.k.a. Bush 41), by either Jim Hightower or Ann Richards in 1988 at the Democratic convention. It's been liberally applied to Dubya recently.
I tend to think it was Hightower who said it, since Ms. Richards already has that one about "born with a silver foot in his mouth".
