George H. W. Bush Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Born on 12 June 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts, the 41st President of the United States who served in the office from 1989 until ‘93, is George Herbert Walker Bush, who prior to his Presidency was the Vice-President to President Ronald Reagan from 1981 ‘til 1989. He also served as the US Ambassador to the United Nations, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and a member of the US House of Representatives for Texas.

So just how rich is George H.W. Bush, as of early 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Bush’s net worth is now over $25 million, accumulated from political positions, military service, business, authorship and speaking engagements, during his long career which began in 1942.

George H. W. Bush Net Worth $25 Million

George H.W. was educated at Phillips Academy, Massachusetts, but enlisted into the US Navy on his 18th birthday, becoming the youngest Navy pilot in World War 2, and flying over 50 combat missions in torpedo bombers, being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross among other medals.

After the war, Bush graduated from Yale University in 1948 with an economics degree, then moved to Texas, becoming involved in the oil industry, and opening his own business in 1953 when he co-created the Zapata Petroleum Corporation. The company successfully searched for oil in the Permian Basin, subsequently producing oil and gas, such that Bush became a millionaire by the time he was 40. He went on to serve as the president and then chairman of a Zapata subsidiary company entitled “Zapata Offshore Company”.

In the early ‘60s, Bush began to take a serious interest in politics, and consequently joined the Republican Party, soon being elected local chairman, and was then elected to the House of Representatives in 1966, serving two terms before losing in a bid for the Senate. However, President Richard Nixon appointed him US Ambassador to the United Nations in 1971, which he held for two years before becoming chairman of the Republican party, but then President Gerald Ford named him unofficial ambassador to China in 1974, and Director of the CIA in 1976 for two years.

From 1977 to 1981, Bush mixed academia at Rice University with business in the First International Bank in Houston, and being Director of the Council on Foreign Relations, before losing the presidential primaries to Ronald Reagan, but then becoming his Vice-President, from 1981 to ’89 and serving with distinction, which eventually saw him succeed as the 41st President of the United States.

Despite a strong performance in foreign affairs, economic problems saw Bush defeated by Bill Clinton in 1993, since when he has written about his career, and been in demand as a public speaker. He has also taken a keen interest in The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum established at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

In his less-than-private personal life, Bush married Barbara Pierce in 1945, and they have six children, several of whom merit their own article, including George W., the 43rd President!

#Fact
1The makers of The Simpsons (1989) responded to his comments by animating the family watching his comments and then having Bart say "Hey, we're just like the Waltons, we're praying for an end to the Depression too".
2As of 2015, George and Barbara Bush are the longest-married First Couple of the United States. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on January 6, 2015.
3Longtime friend of Jerry Weintraub.
4Grew up with Jane Weintraub on Kennebunkport, Maine.
5The first sitting Vice President of the United States to be elected President since Martin van Buren in 1836. With the exception of Thomas Jefferson, all other sitting vice presidents who rose to the presidency first did so under direct succession, whether or not they subsequently ran for president and were elected to their first term in office.
6To date (2010), only U.S. President to have worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (Director CIA 1976-1977).
7Has publicly stated that he was a civilian businessman in the oil business until he was elected to the House of Representatives in 1966. However, declassified memos show that he was working for the CIA in 1963, and corresponded with J. Edgar Hoover about the Kennedy assassination.
8Uncle of Billy Bush.
9Grandfather of Barbara Bush, Jenna Bush and Lauren Bush.
10In January 2009, the U.S. Navy commissioned the "U.S.S. George H.W. Bush" Nimitz class aircraft carrier into service in Norfolk, Virginia. The carrier was named for the former U.S. President and was the last in the Nimitz class series.
11Is played by James Cromwell (who is eight inches taller than he is) in W. (2008).

15On December 26, 2006, after the death of 93-year-old Gerald Ford, Bush became the oldest living current/former president at the age of 82, five months older than Jimmy Carter. Coincidentally, his son, then-President George W. Bush, and former President Bill Clinton were also born the same year, with Bush 44 days older than Clinton. This neatly divides the four former Presidents into two groups: a Democrat and a Republican born in 1924, and a Democrat and a Republican born in 1946.
16Named his upstart oil company Zapata Oil, after the Marlon Brando film Viva Zapata! (1952).
17While attending Yale and captaining the baseball team, Bush met and was photographed with the legendary Babe Ruth. In 1991, U.S. magazine Entertainment Weekly highlighted a baseball card Bush had taken from this period. Collectors were bidding for its value being near the end of his Office term.
18His father, Prescott (Yale 1917) was a Senator from Connecticut who served during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations (1953-1963).
19At Yale University, Bush captained the Yale baseball team that played in the first College World Series.
20In the 1988 Presidential election, early national public opinion polls showed Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis with a 17 percentage point lead over Bush. Bush eventually tallied 48,886,597 popular votes, representing 53.4% of the total to Dukakis' 41,809,476 votes (45.6%). In the electoral college, Bush won 40 states worth 426 electoral votes to Dukakis' 10 states and the District of Columbia worth a total of 111 electoral votes (Dukakis' running mate, Lloyd Bentsen, received one electoral vote for President).
21Like his wife, Barbara Bush, he has had a building in Houston renamed in his honor. Houston Intercontinental Airport was renamed Bush Intercontinental Airport in 1997, while his son was Governor of Texas. The Cypress Creek Library was remodeled and renamed the Barbara Bush library in 2003.
22Of the five Presidents of the United States who served from 1977 to 2009, he is the only one who has not served as a state Governor. Jimmy Carter had been Governor of Georgia, Ronald Reagan had been Governor of California, Bill Clinton had been Governor of Arkansas, and his son George W. Bush was Governor of Texas. President Barack Obama broke the pattern, becoming the first United States Senator since John F. Kennedy to be elected President.
23Has both a son and grandson partially named after him. His oldest son, George W. Bush, was Governor of Texas and succeeded him as president, though he has no sons of his own. His second son, Jeb Bush, has a son named George Prescott Bush.
24The golfing award known as the Walker Cup is named after his grandfather, George Herbert Walker.
25Son of former U.S. Senator Prescott Bush, father of U.S. President George W. Bush and Florida governor Jeb Bush.

32Fifth cousin four times removed of President Franklin Pierce.
33Fourth cousin seven times removed of Benedict Arnold.
34Has his look-alike puppet in the French show Les guignols de l'info (1988).
35When his son George W. Bush became the President of the United States, he became known as George H. W. Bush.

1[assessing his presidency, 2014] The common wisdom when Nixon was around and right after was that I wasn't tough enough, you know, wasn't strong enough, maybe you want to say mean enough. I don't know how widespread that was, but publicly it may have been that, may still be for all I know. It's hard to tell now, but I think there's a certain revisionism. It seems to blend into 'Thank you for your public service', not 'Hey, why'd you do this or that on taxes, or right-wing or non-right wing'. I'm surprised people remember because I feel like I've gone away, out of the game, all that kind of stuff. I haven't been particularly interested in the legacy thing, except hoping that historians get it right, which I think they will.
2If you do something, you want to do it well.
3When you change horses in midstream, doesn't it make sense to switch to one going the other way?
4[regarding criticisms of his son George on setbacks in Iraq] This son is not going to back away. He's not going to change his view because some poll says this or some poll says that. You can't be president of the United States and conduct yourself if you're going to cut and run. This is going to work out in Iraq. I understand the anxiety. It's not easy.
5Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life, I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors.
6"You die, I fly!" - making reference to his frequent attendance of funerals for foreign dignitaries while serving as Vice President of the United States.
7Americans should be more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons
8Read my lips: NO NEW TAXES!
