Career Highlights: Born in Milton, Massachusetts, on June 12, 1924, George H.W. Bush was the oldest child of patrician (and some1 say Nazi Party) banker, Prescott Bush, who was elected Senator from Connecticut as a mid-term replacement in 1952 and again for a full term in 1956.

1942-1945: On his 18th birthday, Bush enlists in the armed forces and becomes the youngest pilot in the U.S. Navy. Lieutenant (jg) Bush flies 58 combat missions as torpedo bomber pilot in World War II. On September 2, 1944, his plane is hit by anti-aircraft fire while making a strafing run over the Bonin Island of Chichi Jima. Although he completes his run, the young pilot is forced to bail-out and subject to dramatic rescue by the submarine USS Finback. Bush's two crewman are tragically unable to join him as they spiral into the Pacific pinned in the crippled and now pilotless aircraft.

1948-1964: Upon demobilization Bush returns to Yale University where he is a member of Phi Beta Kappa as well as the crypto-Masonic Skull & Bones Society (as was his father and grand father before him). After graduation Bush embarks on a career in the oil industry, relocating his family the Permian Basin in West Texas.

1964-1970: Having successfully augmented an already substantial family fortune, Bush next sets his sites on public service. Following an unsuccessful bid for a U.S. Senate in 1964 Bush is elected to the U.S. House as a Republican representative from Texas's 7th District in 1966 and again to a second term in 1968.

1970-1980: Following a second unsuccessful bid for the Senate in 1970 Bush is appointed U.S. Amassador to the United Nations in 1971 where he serves as an apologist for a then unindicted Richard Nixon. In 1973 Bush becomes Chairman of the Republican National Committee. In October 1974, Mr. Bush travels to Peking, where he serves as Chief of the U.S. Liaison Office and key western apologist for the Chineses government.

In 1976 Bush is appointed Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) by Gerald Ford. There by all accounts he worked diligently to implement effective administrative controls over the Nixon era abuses (most prominently foreign assassinations and domestic spying) identified by the Senate's Church Committee (1974-1976) thereby incidentally providing his son (George W.) with one of the major projects of his administration.

1980-1988: Having launched an unsuccessful run for the Republican nomination as the semblance of a human being in early 1980, Bush sells his manhood to Ronald Reagan for the Vice Presidential spot on what proves to be a successful Republican ticket. The depredations of the Reagan Administration are well known.

Certainly its anticommunist policies assisted in the liberalization and ultimate collapse of the corrupt and frankly genocidal Soviet regime. At the same time its Latin America policies saw one of the greatest periods of regional bloodletting since late in the Ford administration.

However, with the exception of weepy former National Security Advisor, Robert "Bud" McFarlane most administration officials indicted for subverting the will of Congress during this period saw their trial court convictions overturned on 5th Amendment grounds by the duly constituted federal courts of appeal.

1988-1992: Commentators are shocked when Bush rolls over the ethnic governor of an ultra-liberal northeast state to become President and begins acting more or less like Nixon (minus the profanity).

Doctors will later determine that Bush is suffering from a cogentital autoimune disease resulting in hyperactivity, insomnia and geometrically elevated level of testosterone. In 1989 Bush invades Panama on the pretext of arresting its head of state on drug conspiracy charges. Several thousand Panamanians are killed. Tens of thousands are rendered homeless.

In 1990 Bush assembles a massive coalition to eject decades long ally, Saddam Hussein, from the oil rich and profoundly undemocratic, kindgom of Kuwait. With limited ground cover and first rate fields of fire some 100,000 Iraqi conscripts are killed in the course of a month long bombardment.

That same year Bush signs amendments to the Clean Water Act in an insidious attempt to extend Federal juridiction over waters "adjacent" to waters of the United States. Although the judiciary dampens the effect (finding that water must at least be "appurtenant") additional permitting by the Corp of Engineers is required and in some cases may be altogether denied to local commercial and residential developers. Cost benefit analysis by Bush's own Bill Kristol led OMB indicates that upwards of 20 excess death will ensue from the resulting economic drag caused by the loss of productive land.

More critically, and despite repeated and sometime bizarre denials, Bush signs the Tax Reform Act of 1991 thereby apparently costing Pat Buchanan two or three extra pinstripe suits and at the same time inadvertantly activiting Manchurian Candidate, and long time Lyndon LaRouche ally, Ross Perot.

The resulting split in the conservative base throws the the election to the admittedly crafty but probably otherwise unelectable southern Demorcrat, William Jefferson Clinton. A heavily medicated Bush yields power in January of 1993 and following a sombre ceremony retreats to his ultra-secure family compound on Jupiter Island, Florida.

  1. By some we mean the United States Justice Department and a court of competent jurisidiction.
