Read My Lips: I Didn't Touch Teri's Ass

Former President George H.W. Bush did a little spin control over the weekend, denying that he ever gave Teri Hatcher a little love tap on the rump and calling the infamous footage "a fraud."

TMZ posted video of the pair saying their goodbyes after having lunch together last month, and the video sure seems to show the former Prez caught in the act.

"I have been teased about it relentlessly," Bush told the TV show "EXTRA" at the Women's Leadership Forum over the weekend. "[A blog] accused me of patting her backside, which I did not do. The camera lies, it's a fraud." Hey George, there are worse things to be accused of than giving Teri Hatcher a pat on the rear. Like lying about raising taxes, for example.
