I've seen it more than once identified as a quote by Bush I (GHWB, #41).

The quote was (allegedly) reported by Robert I. Sherman of the American
Atheist News Journal, at an informal outdoor news conference at O'Hare
on August 27, 1987.

"When in our age we hear these words: It will be judged by the result--then we
know at once with whom we have the honor of speaking.  Those who talk this way
are a numerous type whom I shall designate under the common name of assistant
professors."  -- Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling (Wong tr.), III, 112
