George W. Bush quotes may be full of humor, yet as President he saw America through a turbulent season. Many may laugh at what he said on many occasions but he saw his country through September 911 and that stands for something. His mother Barbara Bush, was also known for her quotes and he considered her his role model.
George Walter Bush was the 43rd President of the United States and is an American businessman and politician. He was succeeded by Barack Obama who won after he served two terms in office. He served at a time when many lives were lost in his homeland, when the U.S suffered its worst terror attack. Below are a number of quotes by the former President.
