Джордж Ге́рберт Уо́кер Буш — 41-й президент США , 43-й вице-президент США при Рональде Рейгане , конгрессмен, дипломат, директор Центральной разведки, отец 43-го президента США Джорджа Буша — младшего. Самый пожилой из ныне живущих Президентов США.

Родился в Массачусетсе в семье сенатора и нью-йоркского банкира Прескотта Буша и Дороти Уолкер Буш. После нападения на Пёрл-Харбор в 1941 году, в возрасте 17 лет, Буш отложил поступление в колледж и стал самым молодым лётчиком ВМС США в то время. Служил до конца войны, затем поступил в Йельский университет. Окончив его в 1948 году, переехал с семьёй в Западный Техас, где начал нефтяной бизнес, став миллионером к 40 годам.

Буш вошёл в политику сразу после создания его собственной нефтяной компании, став членом Палаты представителей, а также занимая другие должности. Он неудачно принял участие в партийных выборах президента в 1980 году, но был выбран в качестве кандидата на должность вице-президента кандидатом в президенты Рональдом Рейганом, и пара победила на выборах. В течение каденции Буш возглавлял административную группу по дерегуляции рынка и борьбе с наркотиками.

В 1988 году Буш успешно начал кампанию на выборах президента, победив оппонента от демократов Майкла Дукакиса. Международная политика, проводимая Бушем, отмечена военными операциями, проведёнными в Панаме, на Филиппинах и в Персидском заливе, падением Берлинской стены в 1989 году и распадом СССР два года спустя. Во внутренней политике Буш изменил своему слову, данному в 1988 году, и после борьбы в Конгрессе подписал увеличение налогов, которое Конгресс утвердил. Вследствие экономических проблем Буш проиграл на выборах президента 1992 года демократу Биллу Клинтону.

Буш — отец 43-го Президента США Джорджа Уокера Буша и бывшего губернатора Флориды Джеба Буша. Он — последний в мире ныне живущий президент, воевавший во Второй мировой войне.

Цитаты Джордж Герберт Уокер Буш

„I have just repeated word for word the oath taken by George Washington 200 years ago, and the Bible on which I placed my hand is the Bible on which he placed his.“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: I have just repeated word for word the oath taken by George Washington 200 years ago, and the Bible on which I placed my hand is the Bible on which he placed his. It is right that the memory of Washington be with us today, not only because this is our Bicentennial Inauguration, but because Washington remains the Father of our Country. And he would, I think, be gladdened by this day; for today is the concrete expression of a stunning fact: our continuity these 200 years since our government began. We meet on democracy's front porch, a good place to talk as neighbors and as friends. For this is a day when our nation is made whole, when our differences, for a moment, are suspended.

„A new breeze is blowing, and a nation refreshed by freedom stands ready to push on. There is new ground to be broken, and new action to be taken. There are times when the future seems thick as a fog; you sit and wait, hoping the mists will lift and reveal the right path. But this is a time when the future seems a door you can walk right through into a room called tomorrow.“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: I come before you and assume the Presidency at a moment rich with promise. We live in a peaceful, prosperous time, but we can make it better. For a new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man's heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree. A new breeze is blowing, and a nation refreshed by freedom stands ready to push on. There is new ground to be broken, and new action to be taken. There are times when the future seems thick as a fog; you sit and wait, hoping the mists will lift and reveal the right path. But this is a time when the future seems a door you can walk right through into a room called tomorrow. Great nations of the world are moving toward democracy through the door to freedom. Men and women of the world move toward free markets through the door to prosperity. The people of the world agitate for free expression and free thought through the door to the moral and intellectual satisfactions that only liberty allows. We know what works: Freedom works. We know what's right: Freedom is right. We know how to secure a more just and prosperous life for man on Earth: through free markets, free speech, free elections, and the exercise of free will unhampered by the state.

„To all who mourn a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a friend — I can only offer you the gratitude of a nation, for your loved one served his country with distinction and honor."“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: To all who mourn a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a friend — I can only offer you the gratitude of a nation, for your loved one served his country with distinction and honor." … "Your men are under a different command now, one that knows no rank, only love; knows no danger, only peace, May God bless them all. At a memorial in Norfolk Virginia for the 47 crew members killed in an explosion aboard the battleship USS Iowa (BB-61). - "Bush Fights Tears at Memorial", By Susan Page. Newsday Washington Bureau. Newsday. Long Island, N.Y.: April 25, 1989. pg. 04

„I do not mistrust the future; I do not fear what is ahead. For our problems are large, but our heart is larger. Our challenges are great, but our will is greater. And if our flaws are endless, God's love is truly boundless.“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: I do not mistrust the future; I do not fear what is ahead. For our problems are large, but our heart is larger. Our challenges are great, but our will is greater. And if our flaws are endless, God's love is truly boundless. Some see leadership as high drama, and the sound of trumpets calling, and sometimes it is that. But I see history as a book with many pages, and each day we fill a page with acts of hopefulness and meaning. The new breeze blows, a page turns, the story unfolds. And so today a chapter begins, a small and stately story of unity, diversity, and generosity — shared, and written, together.

„It is possible to tell things by a handshake.“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: It is possible to tell things by a handshake. I like the "looking in the eye" syndrome. It conveys interest. I like the firm, though not bone crushing shake. The bone crusher is trying too hard to "macho it.: The clammy or diffident handshake — fairly or unfairly — get me off to a bad start with a person. Letter to Gary Hanauser (18 September 1979), as quoted in All the Best, George Bush : My Life in Letters and Other Writings (2000), p. 282

„The Government is here to serve, but it cannot replace individual service. And shouldn't all of us who are public servants also set an example of service as private citizens?“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: The Government is here to serve, but it cannot replace individual service. And shouldn't all of us who are public servants also set an example of service as private citizens? So, I want to ask all of you, and all the appointees in this administration, to do what so many of you already do: to reach out and lend a hand. Ours should be a nation characterized by conspicuous compassion, generosity that is overflowing and abundant. George Bush: "Remarks to Members of the Senior Executive Service," January 26, 1989. Online by Gerhard Peters and John T. Woolley, The American Presidency Project. http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=16628&st

„I do not like broccoli and I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: I do not like broccoli and I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli. Now look, this is the last statement I’m going to have on broccoli. There are truckloads of broccoli at this very minute descending on Washington. My family is divided. For the broccoli vote out there: Barbara loves broccoli. She has tried to make me eat it. She eats it all the time herself. So she can go out and meet the caravan of broccoli that’s coming in.

„I count my blessings for the fact I don't have to go into that pit that John Major stands in, nose-to-nose with the opposition, all yelling at each other.“

— George H. W. Bush
Context: I think it's good, stable system. And, you know, dealer's choice. Let them choose what they want for their system, I'm not going to criticize the British or the Australians or anybody else. But, we've got a stable system, in the sense of presidential leadership, continuity, and I wouldn't trade it at all. And besides that, I count my blessings for the fact I don't have to go into that pit that John Major stands in, nose-to-nose with the opposition, all yelling at each other. He and I have talked about that, incidentally. I think he does very, very well. But I think that's for him, not for me. When asked about the US system of government compared to parliamentary systems.

„We're going to keep trying to strengthen the American family. To make them more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons.“

— George H. W. Bush
