George H. W. Bush, the 43rd president of the USA , the son of the 42nd President of the USA George Bush Sr. , was born in the New Haven, Connecticut. His father was very rich, he made a fortune in the oil business, and the younger Bush studied at a very good school, and then at a prestigious university. He did not shine anywhere, but he was loved everywhere, because the son of a millionaire Bush was a good guy.
Military service Bush Jr. was held in the aviation units of the National Guard – he flew a little, but quickly became an officer. His IQ was only 91, and the average American has 100, but he did not stop to succeed.
In his youth, he drank heavily, but later married an intelligent woman, and she brought him in order. He worked in his father’s business and especially did not succeed, but then bought the shares of the basketball team, began to manage it and earned $ 15 million.
He took up politics, and twice became governor of Texas, lobbied for the interests of big business, did not like to pardon those who were sentenced to death. George W. Bush was a typical average, it seemed that such a person could not become president.
But he won the presidential election twice. He was helped by the fact that the country was tired of clever Bill Clinton and the Democrats, as well as the nation-ridden terrorist acts of September 11, 2001.
Looking at the successor of the clever Obama Obama Trump, one might think that there is a clearly traced dynamics in the US electoral cycles: an intelligent person follows an idiot. This, it seems, confirms the political career of George H. W. Bush, but in reality the mechanics are more complicated. Voters like a simple and practical man, a successful businessman – they think that he will bring order and state affairs.
Ex-President of the United States George Bush The business count of Bush Jr. was endowed with plenty – as, indeed, Trump. But during his presidency it turned out that it has little in common with state wisdom. The main mistake of the 43rd US president was the missionary aspiration to spread democracy even where it could not take root. This was also due to the invasion of Iraq : the American’s military campaign was won easily, and then hopelessly stuck in an unreformed country. As a result, Muslim fundamentalism intensified throughout the region, the influence of theocratic Iran strengthened in Iraq , and the whole grandiose undertaking turned into a slow catastrophe.
The disassociation was another: after completing his second term, George W. Bush went to his Texas ranch to enjoy life with his family and write a book. In history, he will enter as an example of the fact that the US can be managed even by a helpless politician, known for his general inadequacy and aphorisms, which would have done honor to former Prime Minister Chernomyrdin.
News.ru collected some of George H. W. Bush’s golden remarks:
… Humans and fish can coexist peacefully.
… I am the competent authority, and I decide what is best.
… Wow, and Brazil is something big!
… You see, my work is such that you have to constantly repeat the same thing, so that the truth has settled firmly – well, like to catapult propaganda.
Former US President George W. Bush and his wife
… We need to understand that poor people are not necessarily murderers.
… We are the most magnanimous country in the world. We are very generous. I am proud that we are so generous. But, despite our generosity, we should not show off our generosity.
… We had the opportunity to meet Theresa Nelson, who is both a parent and mother or father.
… I rarely read newspaper articles, but people who probably sometimes read newspapers often prepare reports for me.
… I think we all can agree – the past has already passed.
… We can not let the terriers conquer our country.
… I want to preserve the executive power of the president not only for myself, but for all my future predecessors.
Former US President George H. W. Bush … Natural gas is hemispherical. I call it hemispherical, because this is such a thing that we can find in our areas.
… Their goal should be war and military victories, and thus they will prevent war.
… If you are tired of the politics of cynicism and polls and moral principles, then join my campaign …
… I’m not an analytical person. I do not spend much time thinking about myself, thinking about why I do what I do.
If the latter is true, then the United States – and indeed the whole world – is very fortunate. Bush’s presidency did not end with a global catastrophe. Let’s hope that it will cost Tramp
