George W. Bush: Fourty-third president of the United States from 2001 - 2009

George Walker Bush (Also known as George Bush Jr.) was the 43rd president of the United States and son of the 41st president, George H. W. Bush. He is the second of two presidents whose father was also president (the first being John Quincy Adams) Bush barely won the election of 2000, winning by just a few hundred votes in Florida. On September 11, 2001, airplanes were hijacked and crashed into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon, and one failed to likely hit the Capitol or the White House. Bush responded with the War on Terrorism, and began the war in Afghanistan in 2003. This decision was controversial. Some say it was appropriate to end terrorism, but others thought it was just a war that dragged on and wasted American lives. However, at the time, most Americans had the opinion of the former. Because of this, his reputation was good and he won re-election easily. However, he became unpopular in his second term as more and more Americans disliked the War on Terrorism, and the Great Recession of 2008 did not help. His low popularity is likely what caused the 2008 election outcome.


Bush was born on July 6, 1946 in New Haven, Connecticut.


Bush has not been as active in his post-presidency, but he has released a few books and continues to engage with the Republican party. He campaigned for his brother Jeb Bush in 2016, but he lost the Republican nomination to Donald Trump. In 2018, Bush gave a eulogy to his father at George H. W. Bush's funeral.
