George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924) served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. He was also the 43rd Vice President of the United States from 1981 to 1989. A member of the Republican Party, he previously was a congressman, ambassador, and Director of Central Intelligence. He is the oldest living former U.S. President and Vice President. He is often referred to as "George H. W. Bush", "Bush 41", or "George Bush Senior" to distinguish him from his eldest son, George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States. As has become obligatory in the last 50 years, persons considering a run for the presidency publish an autobiography to broadly disseminate their C.V. This was Bush's, unfortunately it only let to a second place finish versus the eventual winner Ronald Reagan. Bush's C.V., none the less, is perhaps the most accomplished of any president in the 20th Century. As new / as new. Item #614
"Voodoo economics was a campaign phrase that turned out to have a long political shelf life. The Democrats tried to turn it to advantage during the general election, though with much success." (p 208).
