Short for George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946); the 43rd President of the United States, inaugurated January 20, 2001 and re-elected in 2004.
Bush pushed through a $1.3 trillion tax cut program, the No Child Left Behind Act, made efforts to privatize Medicare and Social Security and pushed for socially conservative efforts such as the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, faith-based welfare initiatives and the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment, which aims to define marriage as between one man and one woman, and thus prevent recognition of same-sex marriage in the United States.
Bush also declared a global War on Terrorism and ordered the invasion of Afghanistan with the intent to destroy the Taliban, destroy Al-Qaeda and capture Osama Bin Laden. Following unsuccessful diplomatic efforts to convince Saddam Hussein to yield to further weapons inspections, Bush ordered an invasion of Iraq which has yet to reveal weapons of mass destruction.
G. Dub has lost a lot of public support in the years following the invasion of Iraq.
