George W. Bush, who is an American businessman and politician, was born on the 6th of July in 1946 in New Haven, Connecticut. George W. Bush served the United States as the forty-third president from 2001 to 2009. Before becoming president, George W. Bush served as the Texas Governor from 1995 to 2000. George W. Bush is the eldest son of the forty-first American president, George H. W. Bush.
George W. Bush worked in oil business subsequent to graduating from the Yale University during 1968 and Harvard Business School during 1975. In 1977, George W. Bush married a second grade teacher, Laura Welch, and shortly thereafter, he ran ineffectively for the House of Representatives. Later, George W. Bush defeated Ann Richards, an American politician and the forty-fifth Texas Governor, in the Texas gubernatorial election of 1994. George W. Bush was chosen president in 2000, following a close and contentious election, turning into the fourth president to be chosen while receiving a smaller amount of nationwide popular votes than his adversary.
George W. Bush is the second president, next to John Quincy Adams, to have been the son of a previous president, and he is the brother of the former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, as well. Within eight months of becoming president, a terrorist attack took place in the United States on the 11th of September 2001. In reaction, George W. Bush commenced the War on Terror, a global military movement that incorporated the war in Afghanistan, started during 2001 and the war launched in Iraq during 2003.
Besides national security problems, George W. Bush as well, promoted policies on the health care, economy, social security reform, education, and revising the Constitution to ban same-gender marriage. George W. Bush marked into law broad tariff cuts, the No Child Left behind Act, the Patriot Act, Medicare recommendation drug benefits for elders, the Partial-Birth Abortion prohibit Act, and financial support for the AIDS relief program called PEPFAR. His presidential term saw nationwide debates on migration, electronic surveillance, Social Security, and torture.
George W. Bush productively ran for re-election against John Kerry, the Democratic Senator, in 2004, in an additional somewhat close election. Subsequent to his re-election, George W. Bush received more and more heated criticism from across the political band for his management of Hurricane Katrina, the Iraq War, and several other challenges. In the middle of this criticism, the Democratic Party gained the control of Congress again during the 2006 elections. The United States went through its greatest post-Second World War recession in December 2007, often mentioned as the Great Recession, warning the Bush management to perform numerous economic programs designed to preserve the financial system of the country.
George W. Bush was both one of the most nationwide popular and unpopular presidents in the history, having time-honored the maximum recorded presidential support ratings in the stir of the attacks on the 11th of September, and one among the lowest support ratings during the financial crisis of 2008.
In 2009, George W. Bush left office and returned to Texas and bought a house in a housing area of Dallas. George W. Bush is now a public speaker, has written a chronicle with the title, Decision Points, and in 2013, his presidential library was opened.
