George Walker Bush was the 43rd President of the United States of America.

George W Bush

He served 2 terms as President, from 2000-2008, was the Governor of Texas from 1994-2000, and was, for a time, a co-owner of the Texas Rangers baseball franchise.

He is the son of George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President, and the only President besides John Quincy Adams who was the son of a president.

He was the President at the time of the 9/11 terrorist attack, and led the US to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, when we invaded both countries.

A few notable pieces of legislation that he signed were the No Child Left Behind Act, dealing with education standards, and an expanded Medicare program for prescription drug benefits.

He also declared the Northern Hawaiian Islands a national monument, creating the largest marine sanctuary ever set aside.
