George Walker Bush [ˈd͡ʒɔɹd͡ʒ ˈwɔːkɚ bʊʃ], meist abgekürzt George W. Bush [ ˈd͡ʒɔɹd͡ʒ ˈdʌbɫ̩juː bʊʃ] , ist ein US-amerikanischer Politiker der Republikanischen Partei und war von 2001 bis 2009 der 43. Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten.

Nach Unternehmertätigkeit in der Ölindustrie bekleidete er von 1995 bis 2000 das Amt des Gouverneurs von Texas. Bei der US-Präsidentschaftswahl 2000 gewann er gegen den Demokraten und damals amtierenden Vizepräsidenten Al Gore und wurde 2004 wiedergewählt.

Als Reaktion auf die Terroranschläge am 11. September 2001 leitete Bush einen „Krieg gegen den Terror“ ein, darunter den Afghanistan- und Irakkrieg; die Einschränkung von Bürgerrechten und das Aussetzen rechtsstaatlicher Grundsätze in Ermittlungsverfahren sorgten für weltweite Kritik. Im Sinne einer neokonservativen Außenpolitik identifizierte Bush eine „Achse des Bösen“ von „Schurkenstaaten“, gegen die die Vereinigten Staaten als hegemoniale Weltmacht das westliche, wirtschaftlich und politisch liberale Modell ausbreiten sollten bis hin zu einem militärischen Interventionsrecht . Bush steigerte die Militärausgaben und das Staatsdefizit erheblich; seine innenpolitische Ausgangsidee des „mitfühlenden Konservatismus“ sorgte für Initiativen wie die No-Child-Left-Behind-Politik, während er mit Steuersenkungen und Deregulierungsmaßnahmen eine angebotsorientierte Wirtschaftspolitik verfolgte. Bushs Ansehen sank nach hohen Kriegsverlusten, dem Hurrikan Katrina und der Finanzkrise ab 2007.

Bush ist Angehöriger einer wohlhabenden und einflussreichen Familie. Sein Großvater war der Unternehmer und Senator Prescott Bush. Sein Vater George H. W. Bush war der 41. US-Präsident. Sein Bruder Jeb Bush war von 1999 bis 2007 Gouverneur von Florida. Sein von Freunden wie Gegnern zuweilen verwendeter Spitzname Dubya ist abgeleitet von der in den Südstaaten üblichen verkürzten Aussprache des Buchstabens W . Bushs Vorname und sein Mittelname wurden angelehnt an die entsprechenden Namen seines Vaters und seines Urgroßvaters .

„I'm amazed that there is such misunderstanding of what our country is about, that people would hate us.“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2001, Context: I'm amazed that there is such misunderstanding of what our country is about, that people would hate us. I am, I am—like most Americans, I just can't believe it, because I know how good we are, and we've got to do a better job of making our case. We've got to do a better job of explaining to the people in the Middle East, for example, that we don't fight a war against Islam or Muslims. We don't hold any religion accountable. We're fighting evil. And these murderers have hijacked a great religion in order to justify their evil deeds. And we cannot let it stand. Remarks in a press conference, after questions by Ken Walsh of U.S. News & World Report (11 October 2001), as published https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/search/pagedetails.action?collectionCode=PPP&browsePath=president-57%2F2001%2F02%3BA%3BJuly+1+to+December+31%2C+2001&granuleId=PPP-2001-book2-doc-pg1218-2&packageId=PPP-2001-book2&fromBrowse=true in Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States: 2001, Book II (2003), Government Printing Office, p. 1226-1227.

„It's one thing to say, you know, I don't appreciate the way he's handled his business. It's another thing to say this man's a racist. I resent it. It's not true“

—  George W. Bush
2010s, 2010, Interview with Matt Lauer (November 2010), Context: Yes I do, he called me a racist... That's saying he's a racist. I didn't appreciate it then and I don't appreciate it now. It's one thing to say, you know, I don't appreciate the way he's handled his business. It's another thing to say this man's a racist. I resent it. It's not true, and it's one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency. Interview with Matt Lauer http://www.nbcnews.com/video/nbc-news/40073863#40074094 (2010), aired 8 November 2010.

„America is a young country, full of vitality, constantly growing and renewing itself. And even in the toughest times, we lift our eyes to the broad horizon ahead“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2009, Farewell speech to the nation (January 2009), Context: President Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past." As I leave the house he occupied two centuries ago, I share that optimism. America is a young country, full of vitality, constantly growing and renewing itself. And even in the toughest times, we lift our eyes to the broad horizon ahead.

„Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, while judging ourselves by our best intentions.“

—  George W. Bush
2010s, 2016, Context: Every officer has accepted a calling that sets them apart. Most of us imagine, if the moment called for it, that we would risk our lives to protect a spouse or a child. Those wearing the uniform assume that risk for the safety of strangers. They and their families share the unspoken knowledge that each new day can bring new dangers. But none of us were prepared – or could be prepared – for an ambush by hatred and malice. The shock of this evil still has not faded. At times, it seems like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. Argument turns too easily into animosity. Disagreement escalates too quickly into dehumanization. Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, while judging ourselves by our best intentions. And this has strained our bonds of understanding and common purpose. But Americans, I think, have a great advantage. To renew our unity, we only need to remember our values. We have never been held together by blood or background. We are bound by things of the spirit – by shared commitments to common ideals.

„Freedom, by its nature, cannot be imposed. It must be chosen.“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2006, United Nations General Assembly speech (September 2006), Context: Freedom, by its nature, cannot be imposed. It must be chosen. From Beirut to Baghdad, people are making the choice for freedom. And the nations gathered in this chamber must make a choice, as well: Will we support the moderates and reformers who are working for change across the Middle East—or will we yield the future to the terrorists and extremists? America has made its choice: We will stand with the moderates and reformers.

„For 250 years the captives endured an assault on their culture and their dignity. The spirit of Africans in America did not break. Yet the spirit of their captors was corrupted.“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2003, Hope and Conscience Will Not Be Silenced (July 2003), Context: There was a time in my country's history where one in every seven human beings was the property of another. In law, they were regarded only as articles of commerce, having no right to travel or to marry or to own possessions. Because families were often separated, many were denied even the comfort of suffering together. For 250 years the captives endured an assault on their culture and their dignity. The spirit of Africans in America did not break. Yet the spirit of their captors was corrupted. Small men took on the powers and airs of tyrants and masters. Years of unpunished brutality and bullying and rape produced a dullness and hardness of conscience. Christian men and women became blind to the clearest commands of their faith and added hypocrisy to injustice. A republic founded on equality for all became a prison for millions. And yet in the words of the African proverb, no fist is big enough to hide the sky. All of the generations oppressed under the laws of man could not crush the hope of freedom and defeat the purposes of God.

„While many of our citizens prosper, others doubt the promise, even the justice, of our own country. The ambitions of some Americans are limited by failing schools and hidden prejudice and the circumstances of their birth, and sometimes our differences run so deep, it seems we share a continent, but not a country. We do not accept this, and we will not allow it.“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2001, First inaugural address (January 2001), Our unity, our union, is the serious work of leaders and citizens in every generation. And this is my solemn pledge: I will work to build a single nation of justice and opportunity. I know this is in our reach because we are guided by a power larger than ourselves who creates us equal in His image. And we are confident in principles that unite and lead us onward.

„America, at its best, is compassionate“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2001, First inaugural address (January 2001), Context: America, at its best, is compassionate. In the quiet of American conscience, we know that deep, persistent poverty is unworthy of our nation’s promise. And whatever our views of its cause, we can agree that children at risk are not at fault. Abandonment and abuse are not acts of God, they are failures of love. And the proliferation of prisons, however necessary, is no substitute for hope and order in our souls. Where there is suffering, there is duty. Americans in need are not strangers, they are citizens, not problems, but priorities. And all of us are diminished when any are hopeless. Government has great responsibilities for public safety and public health, for civil rights and common schools. Yet compassion is the work of a nation, not just a government. And some needs and hurts are so deep they will only respond to a mentor’s touch or a pastor’s prayer. Church and charity, synagogue and mosque lend our communities their humanity, and they will have an honored place in our plans and in our laws.

„America, at its best, is a place where personal responsibility is valued and expected“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2001, First inaugural address (January 2001), Context: Many in our country do not know the pain of poverty, but we can listen to those who do. And I can pledge our nation to a goal: When we see that wounded traveler on the road to Jericho, we will not pass to the other side. America, at its best, is a place where personal responsibility is valued and expected. Encouraging responsibility is not a search for scapegoats, it is a call to conscience. And though it requires sacrifice, it brings a deeper fulfillment. We find the fullness of life not only in options, but in commitments. And we find that children and community are the commitments that set us free.

„No cause can justify the deliberate taking of innocent human life, and the international community is nearing universal agreement on this truth. The vast majority of nations in this assembly now agree that tactics like suicide bombing, hostage-taking, and hijacking are never legitimate“

—  George W. Bush
2000s, 2008, Address to the United Nations General Assembly (September 2008), Context: Multilateral organizations must respond by taking an unequivocable moral stand against terrorism. No cause can justify the deliberate taking of innocent human life, and the international community is nearing universal agreement on this truth. The vast majority of nations in this assembly now agree that tactics like suicide bombing, hostage-taking, and hijacking are never legitimate. This Security Council has passed resolutions declaring terror unlawful and requiring all nations to crack down on terrorist financing. And earlier this month, the Secretary-General held a conference to highlight victims of terror, where he stated that terrorism can never be justified.
