George W. Bush followed in his father’s footsteps, George Herbert Walker Bush, and became the 43rd President of the United States in 2001. He served the maximum 2 terms and ended his administration in 2009 when he was replaced by Barack Obama. Although popular in the beginning, during the end of his second term Bush’s presidency was fraught with criticism from conservatives, liberals, and the general public due to his handling of a series of disasters, 9/11 terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina that displace thousands in Louisiana, that struck during his tenure. After leaving office, Bush returned to his home state of Texas and bought a house in Dallas where he refused interviews with media outlets for twenty-two months.
