US History - George W. Bush

The 43rd President of the U.S. was George W. Bush, a graduate from Yale in 1968 and Harvard Business School in 1975, working in oil businesses after. Bush advocated policies on health care, the economy, social security reform, and education. In 2005 Bush was criticized for his administration’s handling of Hurricane Katrina. With the combination of dissatisfaction with the Iraq War and the longest post-World War II recession in December 2007, Bush’s popularity declined sharply. He was born on July 06, 1946 in New Haven, Connecticut.
