presidency of george w. bush

Did you know that there have been three American presidents that were direct descendants of a previous president? These were John Quincy Adams, Benjamin Harrison and George W Bush. Interestingly all three of these also lost the popular vote for their first term election.

Forgotten Fact about 413

4+1+3=8. 8 is the atomic number of Oxygen. Oxygen is why you breath. John is a Breath player. Throughout Act 5 Act 2 John had a flirtation thing with Vriska. Vriska. Do you  see it? I’ll say it again: Vriska. Still didn’t catch it? Sound it out with me: Vri. Ska. That’s right. Ska. As in Skaia, the governing force behind the story’s universe. But that’s not really true now is it? We all know Andrew Hussie is the real governing force of the tale. What do we know about Andrew Hussie, that’s it, he is attracted to Vriska. And who is Vriska attracted to at one point? Tavros. The symbol Tavros wears on his shirt is that of the Taurus constellation. Taurus is only one letter away from Tauros as in the Pokemon. Tauros has three tails. Three. Three is how many sides a triangle has. A triangle with an eye in the center is the symbol used by the Illuminati. Eye. Doc Scratch has no eyes. Doc Scratch is an excellent host. Newgrounds hosted [S] Cascade, but the site crashed on its release. Know what else crashed? Three planes on the date September 11th, 2001. One flight did not crash but landed safely. The president on that date was George W. Bush.  George W. Bush was the United State’s 43rd president. Did you catch that? He was the 43rd president and 1 flight did not crash into its intended target.

I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. That we need the media to hold people like me to account. I mean, power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive, and it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere.
—  Former President George W. Bush, on NBC’s “Today”, February 27, 2017.

Britney Spears invented democracy in 2000 after overthrowing the authoritarian American dictator, Bill Clinton, so that the American people could decide for themselves who would be the nation’s new ruler. The candidates of the first election were George W. Bush ® and Al Gore (D). The election was a rocky start for democracy because Al Gore had actually won the election but was forbidden from taking office because he had made false claims during his campaign that he had invented the internet rather than Britney Spears, so the office was given to the runner-up, George W. Bush instead. Democracy is still practiced in America to this day.


Michael Rodriguez is both a military man and a muse. Years after President George W. Bush sent him into war, the two men now call each other friends.

Rodriguez was a U.S. Army Special Forces Green Beret who served from 1992 to 2013. He’s featured in President Bush’s book of portraits of more than 60 soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who served in wars under his watch. It’s called Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors.

A Green Beret Sits For A Portrait By His Former Commander In Chief

I know these men and women quite well. There is not an ounce of self-pity in their being. They need help. And so the book’s purpose is to call attention to their courage, but also to the need to help them transition from the military life to civilian life. You know, as a matter of fact, getting to know them … has been uplifting. And that’s what this book is all about is honoring them.

hi i read that jimmy carter is turning 93 this month. are there any presidents in history who lived longer than carter?

President Carter celebrated his 93rd birthday last weekend (October 1st), but he is not the longest-living President in history. In fact, he’s not even the longest-living President currently alive! George H.W. Bush turned 93 on June 12th.

Two other Presidents also reached the age of 93 – Ronald Reagan in 2004 and Gerald Ford in 2006 – but both died before they made it to their 94th birthday. President Ford currently holds the record as the longest-living President in American history, he was 93 years, 165 days old when he died on December 26, 2006. Reagan, who was 93 years, 120 days old when he died on June 5, 2004, is still the second longest-living President in history, but that almost certainly will change in three days because Bush will surpass him on October 11th. And if Bush lives until November 25th he’ll pass Ford and become the longest-living President in U.S. history.

After well over nine decades of remarkably robust health, both Carter and Bush have recently faced health challenges over the past year or two. However, both have seemed to bounce back and recover from any immediate danger, so there’s a pretty good chance that they’ll both eventually pass Ford and Reagan at the top of the list of longest-living Presidents. It’s impossible to guess which of the former Presidents will end up at the top of that list, but I wouldn’t bet against Jimmy Carter, especially considering the fact that he was diagnosed with liver cancer which metastasized into brain cancer and then somehow made a full recovery at the age of 91 years old within three months of his diagnosis despite the fact that his father, mother, and all three siblings ultimately died of pancreatic cancer. 

Carter and Bush already hold two Presidential longevity records which may never be broken. Carter has lived longer than any other President after leaving office. Carter has spent almost 37 years in “retirement” since turning the White House over to Ronald Reagan on January 20, 1981. Herbert Hoover’s 31 years, 231 days after leaving office was the previous record. Bush and his wife, Barbara, hold the record for longest marriage by any First Couple. The Bushes have been married for an astonishing 72 years and will celebrate their 73rd anniversary on January 6th! Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, aren’t too far behind – they celebrated their 71st anniversary this summer. Coincidentally, the Carters were married on almost the exact same day that the Bushes welcomed their first child to the world. Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter exchanged wedding vows in Georgia on July 7, 1946, just 24 hours after George and Barbara Bush’s eldest son, future President George W. Bush, was born in New Haven, Connecticut.
