Our 43rd U.S. President, George W. Bush, was—and still is—quite an enigma.
He won the presidency in 2000 in a very close and controversial election against Al Gore. He is only the 4th president to ever have won that office despite having fewer popular votes than his opponent (because of our electoral college voting system).
He was both the most popular and least popular president in U.S. history! He reached the highest approval ratings ever (90%) after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and received the lowest ratings ever (19%) during the financial crisis of 2008.
He was controversial at home and internationally, even among our allies. This quote captures the enduring irony of this man, “Although his presidency has been ranked among the worst in recent surveys of presidential scholars, his favorability ratings among the public have improved since he left office.”1
George (I’ll call him by his first name for convenience) grew up in Texas, the son of former President George H. W. Bush. Young George went to private boarding school and graduated from Yale University in 1968 and Harvard Business School in 1975. He was active in fraternities and cheerleading and was also a rugby player.
After graduation, he worked in various oil businesses throughout his private sector career. He married Laura Welch in 1977 (after knowing her only 3 months), and the following year lost his first run for an elected position (in the U.S. House of Representatives) by only 6% of the vote. In 1994 he was elected governor of Texas beating Ann Richardson by 7%, and was re-elected in 1998.
He served two turbulent terms as U. S. President from 2001 until 2009. His first year in office saw the 9/11 attacks. He launched wars in Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. He is also known for his controversial economic policies, tax cuts, the Patriot Act, the No Child Left Behind Act, his highly criticized handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, and his refusal to implement the Kyoto Protocol on global warming that had been signed by the previous president, Bill Clinton.
Since leaving office he published his autobiography, Decision Points, in 2010 and opened the Bush Presidential Center—which includes his presidential library and a museum, his policy institute and his foundation—in April 2013 in Dallas, TX, where he and his wife currently live.
Regardless of your politics or opinion of former President George W. Bush, his chart offers a fascinating look into his personality traits and leadership style—helping us all to understand him a bit better.
We’ll look at just a few key aspects of his chart that illuminate his character.
