George W. Bush is the former President of the United States for full two terms starting from 2001.Bush was elected President in 2000 in a close and rather controversial election. He was the Republican candidate and defeated Vice President Al Gore in the election. The first term of Bush presidency was rocked by the terrorist attacks on WTC on 09/11. The US president retaliated by launching a War on Terror. He started military campaign against Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. By the term his first term ended he has promoted important policies related to economy, health care and education. Bush became quiet unpopular in his second term due to his handling of Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War. He was regarded as a controversial figure internationally. After leaving office Bush started living in Dallas and is now a well known public speaker.
When you are a former President of United States, everything comes under the scanner. Even George W. Bush was not spared. Many raised questions on how the young Bush made so many millions. It is believed that Bush made hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent deals which Bush denied later on. He also made around $850,000 by selling the Harken stock options. But this Harken was only a small part of the many accounting scandals that he was later involved in. Bush also made a lot of money at a major league ball park. Bush invested around $600,000 and gained huge returns out of this.
Since Bush served as the Governor of Texas and then the President of the United States he had very little opportunity to spend any of the many millions that he had. However, he did make one or two notable purchases. But again these were after he left office. In fact, at the beginning of this year he bought a black Lamborghini LP700-4 Aventador. The car is 4.78m tall and delivers around 700hp of sheer performance. But like any other issues related to Mr Bush this piece of information too had a fair share of controversy. The Office of the Former President declared this news to be complete hoax.
George W. Bush was the eldest son of Barbara Bush and Bush Sr. He graduated from Harvard business school in 1975. He married his wife Laura Bush in 1977 and has twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara. Bush has always said that Laura had a stabilizing effect on his life and was the main reason behind his decision to quit alcohol in 1986. Bush never shied away from admitting the profound influence Laura had in his life. In his past time, Bush reads historical nonfiction. He is now a noted public speaker too.
