HOUSTON – Charles Denyer spent the last three years interviewing those closest to Bush and Baker, including former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, Vice Presidents Dick Cheney and Dan Quayle, and numerous other notable political power players from the past fifty years. The stories that were shared with him along with his diligent research gave him first hand insight into the incredible friendship.
George Herbert Walker Bush was a political powerhouse serving as a congressman, ambassador, CIA Director, Vice President and finally, President of the United States while his very loyal friend James Baker served as White House Chief of Staff, Secretary of the Treasury, and Secretary of State forging a powerful bond between the two. Throughout their careers, Bush and Baker rode the highs of political victories – Bush’s 1988 presidential election landslide win – yet also felt the sting of defeat with his failed re-election effort in 1992. They navigated both domestic and international challenges, including the Tiananmen Square massacre, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Gulf War, the re-unification of Germany and the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Denyer is a best-selling author, speaker and expert in cybersecurity and announced the release date of his latest book, Texas Titans: George H.W. Bush and James A. Baker, III: A Friendship Forged in Power on November 17, 2020 which you can get by clicking here and learning more about the friendship between the two political giants and how they helped put Texas in the political movement it is now.
