Hubbard, Jim, 1949- :Dubya. U. S. President. The Dominion, 19 December 2000.

Reference Number: A-350-083

The President of the United States, George W. Bush, depicted as a simpleton, in enormous boots, representing the presidency, and wearing a badge inscribed 'Dubya', (his nickname, from his way of pronouncing his middle initial, W). He is holding up both hands in V for victory signs, and appears to be too small for the large boots he is wearing. Refers to doubts about the intellect and capacity of the newly-elected President.Exhibition caption reads - New Zealanders were generally puzzled by what almost (but not quite) 50% of voting Americans found to admire in their new president, George W. Bush.
