Introduction

Playstyle
George H. W. Bush is an old guard, pragmatfocused candidate that can reach out to moderates and, serving as the jack-of-all-trades; master of none.
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Inoffensive All-Rounder: While George Senior isn't too outstanding in any one particular area, he has the general traits to hold water across the finish line in any campaign you throw him at due to a mix of generalized stances and traits. Don't expect his campaigning or attributes to be particularly cutting-edge or top notch however.
  • Media Likeness: While sharing traits to another similar all-rounder (see Doug Burgum), George H. W. Bush doesn't struggle too much to put out a strong ad campaign, emblematic of the powerhouses of 80 to 90s-era Republican campaigning.
  • Expert Politician: With the experience of the Presidency and VP under his belt, H.W. will not disappoint those looking for an established and well-rounder to hold and bestow the grace of the office.
  • Master of None: Aside from a position as an expert politician, average stamina, personable speeches, and in-between issue scores might just not cut it for many politicians looking to deliver rancorous and roaring victories towards eager crowds.

  • Up to 12 movements in a single turn.
  • Up to 2 Speeches with 2 stamina points leftover.
