#4. George W. Bush Jr.

George Walker Bush served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009. He is the eldest son of President George H. W. Bush and was the 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. Bush Jr. was elected president in 2000 after a close and controversial contest against Democratic rival Vice-President Al Gore that involved a recount in Florida. He became the fourth person in history to be elected president while receiving fewer popular votes than his opponent. Education: Phillips Academy, Yale University (BA), Harvard University (MBA) Performance in Office: Although President Bush was known for his folksy, gaffe-prone demeanor, his presidential term was dominated largely by the events of 9/11 and the ensuing "War on Terror" in Afghanistan and Iraq. His most controversial decision was the 2003 invasion of Iraq which is now widely regarded as an avoidable and unnecessary conflict. President Bush's incorrect belief that Saddam Hussein was in possession of weapons of mass destruction has caused historians to rate him low in international relations, but he is still seen by many Republicans as a President who was focused on keeping the U.S. safe. His poor handling of the economic crisis during the Great Recession towards the end of his second term further cemented his administration's low approval ratings. But public opinion of Bush Jr. has improved following his Presidency, albeit primarily because of comparisons with President Trump.
