George W. Bush becomes President in 2001, 12 years after his father is first elected President.


Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, missed President Barack Obama's second inauguration but have sent their best wishes.
A spokesman for the 66-year-old former president, Freddy Ford, issued a statement Monday evening saying, "President and Mrs. Bush wish President Obama and his family all the best for a wonderful inaugural celebration."
Obama is the nation's 44th president.
Bush served two terms as the country's 43rd president. He and the former first lady live in Dallas.
His 88-year-old father, ex-president George H.W. Bush of Houston, sent a similar message of best wishes in his name and that of his wife, Barbara. The elder Bush was released last week from a Houston hospital where he was treated for nearly two months for a bronchitis-related cough and other health issues.
