GEORGE H.W. BUSH
Note to a close supporter, signed at a cocktail reception in Beverly Hills for Bush's 1988 presidential campaign, only a few weeks before he would win the election
Autograph note signed: "Jo-/-Love-George Bush/Special night-/10-14-88", in black felt tip, 4x3. This note was signed the night of a cocktail reception for Bush's presidential campaign, with the party taking place at Chasen's Restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. George H. W. Bush(b. 1924) was Ronald Reagan's Vice President (1981-1989) before serving as 41st U.S. President (1989-1993), the first incumbent Vice President to be elected President since 1836. Bush's distinguished resume included oil company executive, Texas Congressman, Chairman of the Republican Party, Director of Central Intelligence, Ambassador to China and Ambassador to the United Nations. As President he conducted a largely successful foreign policy, including the first Gulf War against Iraq, Operation Desert Storm, and the 1989 invasion of Panama to depose General Manuel Noriega. But he wasn't re-elected largely due to shortcomings in his domestic policy, including a tax raise in 1990 after a campaign promise - the famous "Read my lips: No - new - taxes" speech - not to raise them. His son, George W. Bush, became 43rd president in 2001 and served two terms. Slightly frayed on bottom edge. Fold in center. Fine condition.
