George W. Bush, is the 43rd president of the United States. The elder Bush is referred with various nicknames and titles, including "former President Bush", "Bush the Elder" (and variations), "Bush 41", "Papa Bush", "the first President Bush", or simply "41" in order to avoid possible confusion between his presidency and that of his son. During his term of office he was known simply as President George Bush, without any initials, as his son had never held elective office and was not especially well-known to the public. Technically speaking, for official protocol, his son is "Mr. President" and he is "Mr. Bush" or "Congressman Bush" (titles pertaining to an office that only one person occupies at a time are not used after retirement (http://www.jsonline.com/lifestyle/advice/dec03/189597.asp)).

Bush has since commented that he did not paticuarly enjoy this string of jobs, saying he never wanted to be a "career bureaucrat." However, had Bush not received the succession of appointments after his senate defeat in 1970, it's unlikely he would have risen to a level of national prominence in politics.


It has been alleged by Watergate researcher Adrian Havill that there is a possibility that Bush senior could have been the infamous leaker ' During his investigation into United States President Richard Nixons involvement in Watergate, reporter Bob Woodward was supplied with leaked information by an informer he dubbed Deep Throat.

He has often made the notorious shortlist of suspects but he remains a definite outside contender amongst Deep Throat possibilities. Havill, however, in a letter to poynter.org, said he began to suspect Bush when the President's son, current-President Bush, who dislikes the press, gave Woodward seven hours of interviews for his first book on the latter's White House. Bush was also U.N. ambassador in New York from 1971-73 but came to his Washington home on weekends, on which seven of the eight Deep Throat/Woodward meetings took place.


As for whether or not Bush had a motive for ratting out his President Nixon, it should be noted that it was Nixon who in 1970 urged Bush to leave a safe seat in Congress after hinting that there would be a position as assistant Secretary of the Treasury waiting for him if he failed to win Yarborough's Senate seat. When Bush lost, Nixon reneged and asked him to take the UN post instead. He then made overtures that seemed to hint that he would be replacement for Spiro Agnew in 1972. Instead, in 1973 he was given the largely-thankless task of heading the The Republican National Committee (RNC) of the United States provides national leadership for the United States Republican Party.

Bush was later the first Cabinet official to request that the president resign over the Watergate scandal. So far, the former President has had no comment on the highly unlikely claim.
