#43 George W Bush

--George W. Bush was the eldest son of President George H.W. Bush, who served as the 41st President, making him one of two American presidents to be the son of a preceding president (6th President John Quincy Adams, son of 2nd President John Adams).

--Bush's two terms as president were most critically focused on the subject of terrorism, following the attacks on September 11th, 2001, and he oversaw the ouster of the Taliban from the government of Afghanistan and the invasion of Iraq and overthrow of its leader, Saddam Hussein.

--Bush is the only president to have earned an MBA (Master of Business Administration).

--Bush was widely known for giving nicknames to various people (Dick Cheney ="Big Time"/"Vice"; Vladimir Putin ="Pootie-Poot"; Karl Rove ="Turd Blossom"), but as the years went by Bush's nicknames grew increasingly lengthy and complicated. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, for example, became "Englebert Sandwiches O'Hilloughsby Oaxaca Rose-Newton", and his nickname for wife Laura, previously "Bushie", expanded into a bizarre 240 character designation that also incorporated an impression of a barking sea otter.
