Is the 43rd president of America and has been re-elected to that office; a fact which has annoyed a lot of people on the left. You can read a biography from the Wikipedia by following this link:- George W. Bush.
When he got the post he swore an Oath of office ; this oath is specified in the U.S. Constitution at Article II, Section 1 and is:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
The oath may be sworn or affirmed. Although not explicitly present in the text of the Constitution, it has been conventional for Presidents to add so help me God at the end of the oath, as that is the traditional way of taking any oath. George Washington did this at his inauguration in 1789.
Senators and Congressmen must swear to the same purpose, to wit the upholding of the Constitution.
President of the United States
The President of the United States is the head of state of the United States. Under the U.S. Constitution, the President is also the chief executive of the federal government and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces. These are his formal responsibilities subject his Oath of Office.
The Constitution includes Article IV as follows.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
This means that George has formally committed himself to preventing invasion by a flood of illegal immigrants moving in from Mexico. He has given them an amnesty once. He has weakened the border patrols to make it easier for them to get away with it. He has done this with the connivance of many officials who have the same formal obligation to uphold the Constitution including Article IV, Section 4. It may be that his conduct constitutes Treason and that he is liable to be Impeached for Misconduct in Public Office if nothing else.
He has made war against a foreign state called Iraq using a false claim that they had WMD. The secret Downing Street memo proves that we were lied to. It may be that waging war at the behest of the agents of another foreign power is misconduct in public office.
Top Immigration Enforcer Forced to Resign by Bush
He was keen on gripping illegal immigration. He said so and three days later he is out of a job. Cause and effect? You betcha. George has been encouraging illegals too long for any doubt about his loyalties.
George W Bush Drunk
George used to be a drinking man and then he gave it all up. That is the story. There are whispers that he is back on the bottle now that sundry chickens are coming home to roost. Here is some evidence.
