George Walker Bush served as the 43rd President of the United States of America. He completed the first statutory term of four years in office and won the second and last mandate allowed by the constitution, against Al Gore in circumstances that were controversial. Hi tenure also proved to be divisive. In the article below, I attempt to “read’ the character of the man.


I must confess: I have a love-hate relationship for Former American President, George Walker Bush. He is the president who lied to his country, the world and God. Yet, America is such a great God-fearing nation. George Walker Bush, the 43rd president of the United under false pretexts invaded Iraq, toppled its president and “raped” the country, claiming that the Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein, was harbouring weapons of mass destruction. In the end no such weapons were found. The result is that today Iraq is on its knees. It suffers depravity of all kinds: acute water shortages, temperamental electricity supply, and above all, abject insecurity. Today, Iraq is a thousand times worse off than it was under Saddam. So for those reasons, George Walker Bush ought to be cursed. It is for those reasons that I call the Former U.S. president “the devil”.


Even so, I take off my hat for Bush for breaking down taboos and doing what could rightly be called “the impossible” in modern day America. In an era when not many African Americans had reared their heads in American politics, let alone in top positions, George Walker Bush appointed Colin Powell as Secretary of State of the United States. It was a big gamble Bush took. But it worked, because Colin was not received with any hostility by the public. Although some pundits may argue that it was a just reward for the way Powell handled the war with Iraq, a counter argument could be that even so, the president could have rewarded him with a lesser position. But he did not.


As things turned out, the General`s appointment was only the tip of the iceberg. It was only an indication of things to come because after Powell, the same President not only appointed another African American to that prestigious post of Secretary of State ; he went for a woman this time: Condoleezza Rice. Therefore, if Powell`s appointment had by any chance been considered as an accident, Rice`s own was a clear shattering of that thinking. Rice did not only prove to be ruthlessly efficient, she also proved to the world that she was not just the pretty face with the coveted gap teeth: she was also an intelligent woman. None of that is surprising because one only needs to look at Rice`s educational and professional profile to understand that she is really and truly a woman of substance.


  Interestingly, there is an aspect of the relationship between these two people that may not be well known to the public. Bush, born on July 6 is a Cancerian and Rice on November 14 is Scorpio. Together they make an incredibly compatible “couple”. They are both Water signs, a factor which makes them look as if they were “made for each other”. This applies whether they are at work or at home, although in this specific case, their relationship was professional. It is worth recalling that there are three Water signs, the third one being Pisces, just as there are three earth signs (Capricorn like Jesus Christ, Virgo like Mary the Mother of Jesus; and thirdly, Taurus like Joseph the spouse of Mary and earthly father of Jesus). Similarly, there are three Air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra) and three Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius). Basically, any tow of the three signs under any of the four natural elements can yield that high degree of compatibility. In statistical terms, we can rate it at 85 per cent at the start of the relationship. The association between Bush (Cancer) and Rice (Scorpio) is so therefore intense that they can communicate with each other very well, even unconsciously like in their sleep. They can read what is in the mind of the other person with surprising precision. By looking at the other person, they can detect a problem and find its solution without the “sufferer” having said anything to express it. The online source describes the relationship thus: “Since both the Cancer and Scorpio are Water signs, they blend well with each other and pair up easily. Both the Cancer and the Scorpio takes commitment seriously, and none of them is frivolous with their romantic feelings and expressions. They both create a strong bond of unlimited passion and compassion.” Another source, says “The chemistry between a Scorpio Woman and a Cancer man is amazing and everlasting. Scorpio woman will be devoted and will give him everything that he wants. Both the zodiac signs complement each other. Scorpio woman will inspire a Cancer man to reach great heights and also to stay calm. However, a Scorpio woman is jealous and will make a Cancer man secured as he is also very possessive for her. The Cancer man is very emotional and with minor glitches the couple will enjoy good times ahead.”


Surely, those two appointments fearlessly made by George Walker Bush have gone down in the annals of history as great success stories. They have also given a new orientation to political thinking in America and the world at large. So, whether we like it or not, the relatively easy ride over of Barrack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America, to the White House came about as a result of the solid groundwork Bush had laid, perhaps unconsciously. By doing that, Bush made not just America but the entire world a better place.


Having read this, you may wonder how then I could have placed God and the devil – two opposite poles – in the same person. Frankly, I cannot answer the question.
