- George W. Bush – President George Bush had his share of detractors during his time in office. Sentiment against his father aside, Bush had his own negative impact on people’s perception of him. The truth is that his legal troubles started long before the whole weapons of mass destruction problem came to light. Bush was arrested at the age of 20 for some drunken antics with friends, which resulted in the group stealing some items from a department store. The charges were dropped. In 1976, however, Bush was cited for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated near his family’s Kennebunkport home. The drunk-driving conviction alone, nor his acknowledgement that he overused alcohol until age 40, are not enough to count the younger Bush out entirely, but there additional concerns about his substance use. Some sources indicate that the former President may have used drugs like Cocaine, which could be problematic for passing standardized FBI background screenings.
