If I had to choose a candidate based on, background, positionon issues, and intangibles I think it would be George W. Bush. I would chooseGeorge W. Bush because he supports some issues that Im interested in and heseems like the kind of guy who will do a good job. I think that with George W.
Bush as president, the United States will become a better place for everyone. Inthis essay I will discuss why I think he would be a good president based onissues, background and his intangibles. I also support George W. Bush because hehas a good background. Not only was he involved in politics, but he is has alsobeen involved in business. This is a well educated well experienced man. Here issome background information on George W. Bush that shows some of the things thathe has done to this day, he was born July 6, 1946 and grew up in Midland andHouston, Texas. He received a bachelors degree from Yale University and an MBAfrom Harvard Business School. He served as an F-102 pilot for the Texas AirNational Guard. He began his career in the oil and gas business in Midland in1975 and worked in the energy industry until 1986. After working on his fathers1988 presidential campaign he assembled the group of partners that purchased theTexas Rangers baseball franchise in 1989 and which later built the Rangers newhome, the Ballpark at Arlington. He served as managing general partner of theTexas Rangers until he was elected Governor on November 8, 1994, with 53.5percent of the vote. Governor Bush and his wife, Laura, a former teacher andlibrarian who grew up in Midland, live in the historic Governors Mansion inAustin with their 18 year old twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna, their dog,Spot, and their three cats, India, Cowboy and Ernie. Governor Bush is aMethodist and has served on the boards of various charitable, business and civicorganizations. To this day George W. Bush remains as the governor of Texas, andhas done many good things for the state of Texas. One of the biggest things thatmade me notice George W. Bush, was his ideas on taxes. He basically wants toreplace the current five rate structure of 15, 28, 31, 36, and 39.6 percent withfour, lower rates: 10, 15, 25, and 33 percent. Although some of the othercandidates also support a tax cut plan, some of them have ridiculously lowrates, Keyes wants to abolish income tax and Buchannon wants to have a flat 16 %rate, lets face it, these are to low and that would not give enough funding forthe government, then programs regarding education, health care, and defensewould be greatly affected. Then there are other candidates who support tax cuts,but only directed to those who make lower incomes, and that is not fair. So asyou can see George W. Bush has a plan that can benefit everyone and it wont havea negative effect on the economy. Another issue that makes me support George W.
Bush is his ideas on gun laws. I think that his gun laws would make this countryallot safer and it would save allot of lives. George W. Bush basically sharessome of the same ideas on some important issues and that is my biggest reasonfor supporting him. Another thing that is great about George W. Bush is that hehas good leadership skills and he does what is good for the people. He is aloving family man that has done so many good things for the state of Texas and Ithink that he would do a good job at being president. He also seems like acaring man due to all the things he has done for children in Texas, it reallylooks like he is focusing on the well being of the nations children, and thatshows that he is a caring person. Also, he is not negative campaigning, so thatshows that he has faith in his ideas and himself. This is the kind of presidentthat I would want and that is why I am supporting him. In conclusion, if I hadto choose a president based on his background, his ideas on issues, or hisintangibles, I would choose George W. Bush. I think that he would make anexcellent president and I think that he would do allot of good things to improvethis countries flaws. If you are looking for a caring and motivated presidentthat will make changes that benefit everyone I think that George W. Bush shouldbe your first choice.
