|President Barack Obama meets former president George H.W. Bush.|
The 41st President of The United States had an injury and was taken to a local hospital in Bangor, Maine. George H.W. Bush is the oldest former president living. Bush is 91 years old and is in a wheelchair. He is suffering from Parkinson's Disease.
Apparently he fell and broke his neck. The family issued a statement saying that Bush is being treated for his injuries. He's in fair condition.
Bush was the one term president during 1989 to 1993. He was elected in 1998 in a landslide against Michael Dukakis. Bush served one term as the president and was responsible for the Gulf War, the Los Angeles riots, the War on Drugs, the Read My Lips, No New Taxes pledge and two recessions.
Bush was a former vice president, congressman, an ambassador and director of Central Intelligence Agency.
Bush was defeated by Bill Clinton in 1992. Clinton went on to serve two terms with hostile opposition from Republicans. Clinton managed to straighten out the economy. Republicans never credit him for the work.
Bush's son then Texas governor George W. Bush ran in 2000 and won against Al Gore, Clinton's second banana. The former Vice President lost in a narrow electoral vote. Which sparked harsh criticism of Bush being elected by the Supreme Court and not the American people.
George W. Bush served from 2001 - 2009 and led the country into two wars after the September 11, 2001 attacks. He also resided over Hurricane Katrina, two global recessions, and a handful of culture war events. By the time Bush left office, the economy was tanking.
Barack Obama won the election in 2008 and is currently the President of the United States.
George W. Bush was the 43rd president and his brother Jeb is running in the clown car.
