GEORGE BUSHTyped Letter signed (1998), informing his friend Cy Laughter that he will be unable to attend a function for an Ohio Congressional candidate Typed Letter signed: "George", 6¼x4 card. No place, 1998 May 13. To "Dear Cy" [Laughter]. In full: "Unfortunately, I had to turn down Dave Westbrock's invitation. I fired off the enclosed letter to him today. I hope all goes well with you. Hastily, but with warm regards". 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. Dave Westbrock had been the unsuccessful Republican candidate for Congress in the 3rd Ohio district. He remains politically active, outspoken in opposition to President Obama's health care legislation, for example. Fingerprint smudge at upper right margin area. Otherwise, fine condition.
