George Bush

Geburtstag: 6. Juli 1946
Andere Namen: George Walker Bush, Джордж Буш

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 .

„As we gather tonight, our nation is at war, our economy is in recession, and the civilized world faces unprecedented dangers. Yet the state of our Union has never been stronger.“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2002, State of the Union address (January 2002)
Kontext: Thank you very much. Mr. Speaker, Vice President Cheney, members of Congress, distinguished guests, fellow citizens. As we gather tonight, our nation is at war, our economy is in recession, and the civilized world faces unprecedented dangers. Yet the state of our Union has never been stronger.

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2009, Farewell speech to the nation (January 2009)
Kontext: Like all who have held this office before me, I have experienced setbacks. There are things I would do differently if given the chance. Yet I have always acted with the best interests of our country in mind. I have followed my conscience and done what I thought was right. You may not agree with some tough decisions I have made. But I hope you can agree that I was willing to make the tough decisions.

„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

Interview with Matt Lauer http://www.nbcnews.com/video/nbc-news/40073863#40074094 (2010), aired 8 November 2010.
2010s, 2010, Interview with Matt Lauer (November 2010)
Kontext: 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.

„I think we ought to welcome people from different cultures to America. The great thing about America is we ought to be confident in knowing that everybody becomes an American. And we share the same value system.“

—  George W. Bush

2010s, 2011
Kontext: And you realize that we share the same values. Faith, family, you know, hard work, commitment to service and I think we ought to welcome people from different cultures to America. The great thing about America is we ought to be confident in knowing that everybody becomes an American. And we share the same value system. In other words, there's a great capacity for our society to assimilate people.

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

—  George W. Bush

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.
2000s, 2001
Kontext: 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.

„The terrorists envision a world in which religious freedom is denied, women are oppressed, and all dissent is crushed“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2008, Address to the United Nations General Assembly (September 2008)
Kontext: To uphold the Charter's promise of peace and security in the 21st century, we must also confront the ideology of the terrorists. At its core, the struggle against extremists is a battle of ideas. The terrorists envision a world in which religious freedom is denied, women are oppressed, and all dissent is crushed. The nations of this chamber must present a more hopeful alternative, a vision where people can speak freely, and worship as they choose, and pursue their dreams in liberty.

„In the struggle of the centuries, America learned that freedom is not the possession of one race. We know with equal certainty that freedom is not the possession of one nation. This belief in the natural rights of man, this conviction that justice should reach wherever the sun passes, leads America into the world.“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2003, Hope and Conscience Will Not Be Silenced (July 2003)
Kontext: In the struggle of the centuries, America learned that freedom is not the possession of one race. We know with equal certainty that freedom is not the possession of one nation. This belief in the natural rights of man, this conviction that justice should reach wherever the sun passes, leads America into the world. With the power and resources given to us, the United States seeks to bring peace where there is conflict, hope where there's suffering, and liberty where there's tyranny. And these commitments bring me and other distinguished leaders of my government across the Atlantic to Africa.

„The very people traded into slavery helped to set America free. My Nation's journey toward justice has not been easy, and it is not over. The racial bigotry fed by slavery did not end with slavery or with segregation. And many of the issues that still trouble America have roots in the bitter experience of other times. But however long the journey, our destination is set: liberty and justice for all“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2003, Hope and Conscience Will Not Be Silenced (July 2003)
Kontext: By a plan known only to Providence, the stolen sons and daughters of Africa helped to awaken the conscience of America. The very people traded into slavery helped to set America free. My Nation's journey toward justice has not been easy, and it is not over. The racial bigotry fed by slavery did not end with slavery or with segregation. And many of the issues that still trouble America have roots in the bitter experience of other times. But however long the journey, our destination is set: liberty and justice for all.

„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)
Kontext: 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.

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

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2001, First inaugural address (January 2001)
Kontext: 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.

„I believe America's soul is rejuvenated when people come to our country and work hard to realize dreams.“

—  George W. Bush

2010s, 2011
Kontext: My view is, is that we are a land of immigrants, and we ought to recognize that. As a matter of fact, I believe America's soul is rejuvenated when people come to our country and work hard to realize dreams. There is an orderly way to have immigration and that is to recognize people are coming here to do jobs Americans aren't doing, are not capable of doing, are unwilling to do. And we ought to have a process that enables people to come and do those jobs.

„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.“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2003, Hope and Conscience Will Not Be Silenced (July 2003)
Kontext: 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.

„No one should be singled out for unfair treatment or unkind words because of their ethnic background or religious faith.“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2001, Freedom and Fear Are at War (September 2001)
Kontext: I ask you to uphold the values of America, and remember why so many have come here. We are in a fight for our principles, and our first responsibility is to live by them. No one should be singled out for unfair treatment or unkind words because of their ethnic background or religious faith.

„States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world.“

—  George W. Bush

Bush referring to Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as an "Axis of Evil" in his State of the Union Address (January 29, 2002)
2000s, 2002, State of the Union address (January 2002)
Kontext: States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.

„The United States will not retreat from the world, and we will never surrender to evil. America rejects the false comfort of isolationism.“

—  George W. Bush

2000s, 2006, State of the Union (January 2006)
Kontext: But our enemies and our friends can be certain. The United States will not retreat from the world, and we will never surrender to evil. America rejects the false comfort of isolationism. We are the nation that saved liberty in Europe, and liberated death camps, and helped raise up democracies, and faced down an evil empire. Once again, we accept the call of history to deliver the oppressed, and move this world toward peace. We remain on the offensive against terror networks. We have killed or captured many of their leaders — and for the others, their day will come.
