Additional Information: 

President George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States, was in office from 1989-1993. He was a naval pilot in WWII and moved to Texas after the war. There, he was elected to represent Texas in the House of Representatives. Then, he became a UN Ambassador and later ambassador to China. He became the head of the CIA and was nominated to Vice President under Ronald Reagan. (The portrait is from his official Vice President photograph.)

Bush was elected President in 1988 and served one term. He saw the end of the Cold War and the first Gulf War. Bush was in many ways a classic example of a Republican, which led people with more progressive values to poke fun or mock his time in office.
