  • After the elder Bush won the presidency, George

    became managing general partner of the team from
    1989 to 1994.

Governor of Texas
  • During his first term as governor, Bush enjoyed
    growing popularity in Texas. The state enjoyed
    substantial prosperity, and the governor seemed
    to have a knack for pleasing almost all
    constituencies.
  • He held firm on antidrug and anticrime measures
    and on the death penalty, all of which pleased
    conservatives.
  • He also gratified those same voters with large
    tax cuts and a far-reaching welfare reform
    program that required benefit recipients to work.
  • Bush promoted substantial new spending on public
    education and bilingual programs, to the approval
    of many Democrats and Hispanic residents and
    immigrants.
  • He substantially increased state funding for
    public schools while at the same time promoting
    the conservative goals of educational choice
    through programs such as charter schools and
    teacher accountability.

  • Laura Bush, First Lady, holds the family pets
    Spotty, Barney, and India.
