(Washington), 1989 April 19. To Cy (his friend Cy Laughter). In full: "I have passed along Bill Skiles' information to Bill Bennett. Secondly, when a couple of years have gone by, let's talk about where you can go to further help our great country. Best wishes." George 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. Bill Bennett, formerly President Reagan's Secretary of Education (1985-1988) was President Bush's "drug czar" from March 1989 to November 1990, heading the Office of National Drug Control Policy. Cy Laughter, a Dayton, Ohio businessman, started the "Bogie Busters" golf tournament in Dayton in 1967 as a way to promote the city but it also has raised money for charity. Bush frequently attended the annual Bogie Busters. Fine condition.
