What was the US like when George W. Bush was president?
It was pretty much like today, except the economy was better during most of his presidency.
Men do not have "maiden names," which are the names that women are born with as opposed to their married names. The full name of the 41st President is George Herbert Walker Bush. He is sometimes referred to as "George H. Bush" or "Bush 41" because his son, George Walker Bush (George W. Bush) was the 43rd US President.
