George W. Bush: 43rd President of the United States


George W. Bush: 43rd President of the United States. This illustrated State Department publication features biographic information on President Bush, including his early life, schooling and college years, business ventures, entry into politics, and the road to the White House and re-election. Additional biographies cover First Lady Laura Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney, and Lynne Cheney. Other features include a listing of the president's first-term policy priorities, a historical brief on the inaugural process, and photo galleries featuring the president and vice president's global travels and meetings with world leaders and ordinary citizens.

As a US government produced publication, it is Pro-Bush. There is a definite bias in the information delivery. However, I still think it is an interesting site.

From the site:

George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was sworn into office January 20, 2005, for his second term. During his campaign for re-election, President Bush set ambitious goals, including making America and the world safer with decisive action to win the war on terror; keeping America on track for a more prosperous future; strengthening health care for millions of Americans; and building a better and more compassionate America for all.

During his first term as president, Bush on the domestic front signed into law initiatives to improve America's public schools by raising academic standards, requiring teacher accountability, and strengthening local control. He signed historic tax relief measures that have provided rebate checks and lower tax rates for everyone who pays income taxes in America. He increased pay and benefits for America's military and is working to save and strengthen the Social Security and Medicare programs.
