George Bush: The World's First President

1094 words - 5 pages

From September eleventh to his handling of hurricane Katrina and the invasion of Iraq, there is an abundance of crisis related information we can use to judge, define, and sum President Bush’s leadership. Nevertheless, through his contribution to various cultures, leadership, and social outreach intervention programs President Bush excellently portrayed what it means to be a world president and humanitarian.

As President, George Bush made fulfilling his citizenship responsibilities a priority. Hence, due to the fact that he was commander in chief, everything he did came with its degree of controversy or judgment. As President of a powerhouse nation, it was his responsibility not only to engage in the various cultures of the United States, but of the world. Therefore, through his work with combating cancer in Zambia and throughout Africa, promoting women’s rights in Africa’s first women’s summit, and mending foreign policy in India, his commitment and engagement in various cultures and racial groups prevailed—above all controversy.

Prior to September eleventh, when the nation knew not of the dangers that lurked, President Bush worked ruthlessly for the American people in every way possible. Nevertheless, after the event that defined our nation and transformed the world, the President was faced with a demoralizing but inevitable task of bringing justice. In the face of sheer terror and uncertainty like no other, the American people turned to their commander and chief for direction as well as action. Although many lives had been lost and no one knew what would happen next, President Bush knew he had to first soothe the nation, and inevitably bring justice for those who perished. Furthermore, President Bush could have chosen to be mournful, but instead, he put on a brave and heroic face while speaking to the world on a pile of rubble (where the World Trade Center’s north tower once stood). Therefore, the “Fanon” bullhorn he used on top of the rubble symbolizes the beliefs of most social and democratic institutions: bravery, determination, justness, and justice (9/11 Day of Fire).

Soon after, President Bush began meeting with many military and defense leaders to devise an attack on the location where they believed the Taliban were housed. Although some people would call President Bush’s airstrike and slaughter of many innocent Iraqi people inhumane and cowardly, he did what the American people wanted him to do. His actions not only alluded to how leaders react in the face of crisis, but how social and democratic institutions unite as a community to bring change and shape the world. With what the public wanted, President Bush's leadership of the nation is a perfect example of how social and directly democratic institutions behave. Hence, instead of “calling the shots,” he united with the American people and other nations of the world such as the United Kingdom, Australia, and Poland to devise a tactic and plan for invasion. President Bush's actions...
