Bush, born in 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. He oversaw 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. Matte is not in Gallery of History style. Items were not evaluated outside matte. "As is" purchase. Lightly toned, otherwise in fine condition.
