One of the most polarizing figures in contemporary American politics, Bush was the forty-sixth governor of Texas before being elected president. His historic presidency was marked by the 9/11 attacks, two wars, and a global financial collapse. He currently lives in Dallas.
George H. W. Bush, the forty-first president of the United States, moved to Texas as an adult to seek his fortune in the oil patch. He served as director of the CIA and was Ronald Reagan’s vice president. Bush is generally regarded as a pragmatic, business-minded conservative, though his legacy has been obscured by the two Republican presidents who preceded and followed him—his old boss and his eldest son.
The GOP and Democratic chairmen are both from Texas. Right there the similarity ends, or begins, no, ends.
