    Wrong. The middle name has to be the same. He does not identify himself as a junior nor does his father identify himself as a senior. While i am not a big fan of Wikipedia, they also do not use the Jr. and Sr. nomenclature, which they DO use when applicable. I have not seen ANY credible evidence that they are officially regarded as Sr. and Jr.

    Have you ever seen an OFFICIAL source where Bush the elder and Bush the younger are regarded as Sr and Jr?

    For those who care about technical accuracy, George Walker Bush the son of George Herbert Walker Bush is not a Junior. To be a junior they would have exactly the same name and that is not the case. Bush 43's birth name is different from his father and a 'Junior' distinction was not given on his birth certificate, while it has been added spuriously to distinquish him from the elder Bush.

    junior Definition (from Your Dictionary . com)
    jun·ior (joon′yər)
    adjective - the younger: written Jr. after the name of a son who bears exactly the same name as his father

    Unlike Obama, Bush was denied a formal transition with the Clinton White House during the period before taking office. Gore had the inside track and didn't need one. After getting into the W.H. it leaked out that vandalism had occured, and Bush squelched that, always gracious, he wanted a clean break with the earlier 'state' of deep angst that had prevailed before his taking office. He has never defended himself, or said anything that could be taken as being "critical" of others, knowing that for him, it would just lead to bad press and being bogged down in Mickey Mouse crap. So be it. Those who slam him, by their actions show that he was correct in his assumptions.
