GEORGE BUSH Signed 1998 letter on his personal note card, to Ohio friend Cy Laughter Typed Letter signed: "George", 6¼x4 card. No place, 1998 January 30. On his personal note card to "Dear Cy", in full: "I loved that Bogie Busters picture you sent me. It will, indeed, go to the library. It sure brought back a lot of happy memories. I miss you, pal. Sincerely". George Herbert Walker Bush (1924-2018) 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 increase 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. Cy Laughter (pronounced Law-ter), a close friend of George Bush, ran a tool and die company in Dayton, Ohio. The company hosted an annual "Bogie Busters" celebrity golf tournament for charity. The George Bush Presidential Library, where he said the photo was going, is located in College Station, Texas. Fine condition.
