How tall is George W Bush

George W Bush's Height

5ft 10 ¼ (178.4 cm)

Peak height was 5ft 11 (180.3 cm)
Former 43rd President of the United States of America. In office his medical released that he was measured at 5ft 11.75 and 5ft 11.5 for his last physical. That was the official party line. From the rather old documentary, 'Journeys with George', he reveals that "I'm a little guy. Have you noticed that I'm about 5'11, my brother is 6'3?".

Rob, is 5ft10 flat possible today?
Canson said on 17/Nov/19
@Rob: yea he would’ve been 5’10.5 tho not 5’11
Canson said on 16/Nov/19
@Rob: he said “about” meaning prob less than 5’11 peak. Maybe a downgrade to 5’10.75 or .5?
Editor Rob
Arguably 5ft 10.75, but generally I've always though peak Bush being roughly 5ft 11 was ok...I could believe he got 5ft 11.5 in shoes for one measurement.
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 11/Aug/19
Agreed with you on this listing Rob... He is definitely average Male height in USA... 5ft 10 is best range guessed height for this former US president before Obama and Trump.

@canson
I would be surprised even if he msnaged to measure 5’10 now.
Canson said on 22/Jun/19
He’s max 5’10” flat today in his 70s

Recently I looked again at George Bush junior and I believe that he was a good guy 181 cm. Rob, I've collected a lot of good evidence for it. Bush in 2000 didn't look two inches shortet than Al Gore: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
I also believe his father was 6'2.25" because he still looked taller than Bill Clinton in the early 90s.But the difference between Bush and his father never looked big, look at them side by side in 1966: Click Here

I think that 5'11.5" and 5'11.75" were just measurements earlier in the day. Rob, 5'11.25" looks more reasonable for him, could you give him 181 cm in his prime?
Spencer said on 2/Feb/19
Could have been close to 6 feet when he was younger. In his first term he looked 5'11" and he was in his mid 50s then and could already have lost a little height. Today 5'10"

How tall do you think Dick Cheney was during the Bush administration?
Editor Rob
He could look somewhere in 5ft 8-9 zone if he stood well.
Canson said on 22/Nov/18
It’s hard to take any medical exams from presidents seriously after the fiasco we have seen with the current US President’s medical record. 6’3”???? He wouldn’t even measure 6’2 in shoes in the afternoon maybe just when he first wakes up
Editor Rob
If they can lie about their height, what else do world leaders feel they can get away with...
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Oct/18
Bush was fairly young when he claimed 5'11" and remained pretty fit throughout his presidency, much less when he entered office so there's no reason to believe he was taller than that. Arnold was around 6'0" from 2006-2008 and consistently taller by about an inch: Click Here Click Here Click Here The Reagan picture is odd, but it's a good bet Reagan stood shorter than he'd measure by that point and you shouldn't read too much into a one-off photo since it could be the angle, we can't see if Bush is wearing something like cowboy boots and we can't see if Reagan is standing lower. The 5'11.5" and 5'11.75" measurements were likely in shoes or the morning.
VelikiSrbin said on 20/Sep/18
Was George Bush possibly a weak 6ft in his prime? Here he is with 6'0.5 Ronald Reagan in 1988. Click Here

Now assuming Reagan has shrunk 1-1.5 inches by then he still looks 0.5-0.75 inches taller. Also he says he's only 5'11 and his brother is 6'3 but is listed 6'3.5 here.
Gracian said on 26/Aug/18
Rob, if you saw Bush's pictures alongside Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Prince Charles and Prince Harry, you could see that he really looked taller than 5'11". Bush appeared in 2000 in the program from Jay Leno and he looked taller than Leno: Click Here
Click Here
You can see Bush next to Ricky Martin on one of the events of 2001, then Martin seemed to have a slight advantage of hair and shoes over Bush, I think that between them was at most to half on inch difference:

Here is a picture of Bush next to Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Jimmy Carter from 2004, between him and his father and Clinton the difference does not look like 3 inches and more like 2 and a half inches: Click Here
Here are his photos next to Arnold Schwarzenegger from 2008: Click Here

Click Here
And photo of Bush next to Arnold from 2003: Click Here
I think that Bush could measure 6 feet in his peak height out of bed, and his measurements at 5'11.75" and 5'11.5" could have been just his earlier measurements during the day (for example, during the lunchtime). Rob, you said you did not skip this idea to give it a quarter inch upgrade. Have you seen enough now to give him an upgrade to 181 cm?
Lapinux said on 20/Aug/18
@Gracian

He was never any taller than 5'11" without special shoes. He was measured at 5'11.75" in shoes for his first physical so about 5'10.75" barefoot. Maybe a few mm's was lost by the time he took office but nothing more.
Gracian said on 15/Aug/18
Rob, I still believe in a 181 cm peak height for him. Here is another of his pictures next to Prince Charles from 2003: Click Here
And here others from his pictures next to Prince Harry from 2016, Bush still looked like a good 5'11" guy two years ago: Click Here

I think he might have lost some height in the last two years. Besides, during his presidency he really did not look under 181 cm. Rob, do not you think that 5'11.25" could be a better list for him?
Gracian said on 22/Jul/18

I still think Bush deserves to get an upgrade of his peak height by a quarter inches. Here are more of his photos with other American Presidents: Click Here

Rob, you said you did not skip this idea, and 181 cm really look fine for him.

I think his peak height was somewhere between 181-183 cm.

Really 181 cm as his peak height looks good for him. Rob, will you give him an upgrade to 5'11.25" now?
Editor Rob
I've not discounted the idea.
Gracian said on 18/Apr/18
About 5'11" may mean a fraction above this mark. Rob, or 5'11.25" in his peak height is possible?
Editor Rob
Not impossible a little over it.
5'12 said on 5/Feb/18
@Mark
On average, men will have lost one inch of height by the age of 70 (from their peak). For women it’s two inches.
Mark said on 14/Jan/18
If he is 5'10" today at 71, Bush could have been close to six foot as a young man.
MJKoP said on 23/Dec/17
Jimbo said very short LOOKING, guys...and then added that he really wasn't that short(which is accurate). Standing next to his brother and dad he can look quite diminutive, and he also has a type of circular face and protruding ears that gives the impression of being much tinier than he really is. Many people were under the notion that he was a short dude, and of course standing next to John Kerry didn't help much either. Also his kinda bumbling personality and reputation for flubbing word pronunciations cast him as physically small man in a lot of minds, when of course he wasn't.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/17
181cm is not short...and yes peak he may have been that

5'10.75" peak, those weight/height measurements are in clothes/shoes FYI.

MJKoP said on 10/Jul/17
Wasn't the actual line spoken, "I *AM*(emphasized) the(not "a") little guy", and it was said in response to some proverb of sorts such as not forgetting about the little guys? W. was making a joke about how his brother towers him. He may not have been the brightest, but he knows he's not little or short in general!
Canson said on 28/Jun/17
If he claimed 5'11" and measured 5'11.5 and .75 makes me wonder if he's really nearer his claim (or maybe under 5'11 by a hair and maybe was shoe measured).
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
@TheChemSpark

He was comparing himself to his brother Jeb when he described himself as little. I'm sure he doesn't think that 5'11" is a short height.
TheChemSpark said on 6/Jun/17
I can't tell if he's joking. 180 cm is above average in the U.S. and is considered tall in most countries.
BillisaLefty said on 23/May/17
He was probably a legit 5'11'' in his younger years. He has clearly shrunk to about 5'9.5''.
Johnson said on 23/Apr/17
@Rob I didn't know Presidents could be measured in 1/4 and 3/4 fractions of inch as in the case of 5'11.75 for Bush. I thought it was only every half inch on half inch.
Editor Rob: yes, it came from the Whitehouse.

Also his weight I believe was 199.6 pounds.

very precise! He had to have been measured in footwear...surely never barefoot almost 6ft when he was admitting to being 5ft 11
O.J. said on 16/Apr/17
5'10 peak and currently, 5'9. G.W. was clearly shorter than Ricky Martin who is 6' even.
Hans Meiser said on 14/Apr/17
How is 5'11 little? It's literally more than an inch above average for guys his age.
John said on 20/Mar/17
I'd say 6'0 peak. Probably around 5'10.5 now at age 70.
MJKoP said on 22/Dec/16
Rob - the George H.W. Bush link redirects to the celebheights front page.
Editor Rob: ok Adam, thanks for pointing out, I changed a function and realised it will alter a tiny proportion of urls, but it should work now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Dec/16
Bush Sr. I think went from a strong 6ft2 to a weak 6ft2 by the time he was president.
Arthur said on 21/Nov/16
Rob, I just saw this photo from 2013 (Bush aged 67) and he looks only 5'9 range next to Obama and Clitnon Click Here

And in this shot he looks barely 5'10 Click Here
Editor Rob: I would have still said he was close to 5ft 10 there.
S.J.H said on 10/Nov/16
Great job big rob! 178.5cm 5'10.25 and peak close to 5'11
Arthur said on 9/Nov/16
Rob, you still don't have a current/ peak height for this guy? Jeb Bush has and he is 7 years younger. This guy is at most 5'10 today and I doubt he was 5'11 back then too
Editor Rob: yeah Arthur, today he looks like he'd be closer to 178 range.
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
I even dare to say bush is 5'10 where i have seem 6-7cm difference between him and 185cm obama. 5'11 peak for sure
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/16
Ron, how likely is 181cm peak?
Editor Rob: it can't be thrown out the window, because by his 50's he may well have lost a little bit, although his Father seemed to make it to 60's without any visible loss.
S.J.H said on 20/Sep/16
Bush is solid 6cm shorter than 185cm obama. Bush physical was sure measured in shoes at tallest 5'11.75 and shortest 5'11.5 and like he say he was about 5'11 which means barefoot 5'10.75 much likely holding 179.5cm and that was many years ago he say. 5'10.5 barefoot nowadays even back few years ago.

Obama 185-185.25cm now (peak 185.5cm)
Bush 179.0cm flat (peak 179.5-180cm)
Mat said on 18/Jul/16
Rob, could he have been at his peak below 5'11? Like somewhere in the 5'10-5'11 range at his low? Cause he said ''about 5'11'' and that usually means ''not quite 5'11''.

He does look 1.5 inches smaller than Clinton here, who may stand at 5'11.5 Click Here
Editor Rob: the fact they gave him a 5ft 11.5 measurement means I have 'underlisted' him from his official height...of course that could have been he forgot to take his shoes off and was 5ft 11.5 in shoes.
spainmen191cm said on 13/Jul/16
Rob, how tall do you you think is the ex-spanish president that appears in the photo with Bush?

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/16
At least he's somewhat honest about his height unlike Trump!
Flyin said on 6/May/16
Maybe like me, the old prez. 182 morning measurement likely, as in the 1st hour measurement. Could they have got to him this quick Rob, like catching you at 5"9?.
Editor Rob: I think there is some rounding involved, I struggle to see how bush could measure that tall barefoot, unless he was up half an hour and straight to the Dr's for the checkup.
Tom said on 30/Apr/16
No more than 5-10. Unless they're legitimately tall, I believe all presidents lie about their height. Nixon was 5-10. JFK was probably 5-11. Carter was 5-8. Eisenhower was 5-9.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/16
Rob, how likely is it that Bush actually got measured at those for his physical?
Editor Rob: likely, but then when you are President, you might be more likely to have a Doctor who rounds you up, or forgets to tell you to take your shoes off.
184-182 said on 10/Apr/16
182cm peak
180cm in office
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/16
@John: No, they're all meant to be assumed as afternoon/evening heights. It never made sense to me either because your morning height is the tallest you can be barefoot...
John said on 5/Apr/16
Are these all morning heights? Height can vary by up to an inch throughout the day
Joe said on 22/Mar/16
Shook hands with him. I'm 5'8 like you Rob he looked around 5'10
chris said on 6/Mar/16
Rob i think 180cm was his peak height, he has certainly shrunk now, next to Jay Leno he looked 5'9! I think he's 175cm as of right now.
S.J.H said on 1/Mar/16
I'm not sure with people eye sight. But bush is no way taller than 5'10 with legit 6'1 obama or 185ish obama. Rob having great generosity to list him at 5'11
Yeah right. said on 18/Jan/16
I'd say 5'8", 5'9", 5'10". He's never given an impression that he was any taller—and if he tried it'll probably be quite obvious. 5'11 or so in shoes maybe, he can 'reach' 6'0" lol, Odd though, his father was 6'2" and his grandfather was 6'4" (you would think genetics would have been somewhat generous? happened in my family too. My grandfather has a build/look to him like Bush Sr, and he was around 6'2" before he died but none of his sons made it over 6'0", and the one who barely did bore a son who is around 6'3" (my cousin) Now, his wife was a tall woman, and I would have thought my father made it to 6'0", but he "topped" out around 5'10 1/2 or so. On the lucky hand, I'm about 6'1" if you lay me on a flat surface and measure me

Rob, you could add Mr. Bush? He was actulally taller than 6'2. Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/15
A fraction over 5ft11 in his 20's-30's is possible.
plus said on 30/Oct/15
his official 182 cm, it can be a weak 182 (181,5). I believe it. With bad posture (Obama has a good one), and the age he has dropped a little but I believe 181.5 peak and 181 nowadays if he stands in very good position

George F said on 19/Aug/15
Rob he calls himself a little guy? 5ft 11 is not little! Not even average. A little above average but i wouldn't call a little 180 cm
[Editor Rob: maybe with a Dad who was 3 inches or so taller, he felt little at times?]
The Exorcist said on 12/Aug/15
I think Jeb proportionally looks like a 6'4'er, and possibly could have been around that at his peak. Maybe a strong 6'3" nowadays.
MD said on 11/Aug/15
There is no way Jeb is only 6'2", these days. He may be one of the rare one's who has undersold his height. I've seen pictures of him with the president where it's clearly more than an inch different, and Obama is a solid 6'1". He's got to be at least his 6'3" claim even today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/15
I think Jeb was 6ft3 peak.
big joe said on 8/Aug/15
best thing jeb has going for him is his height. Strangely, it's very important to LOOK presidential.
SportsHeight said on 7/Aug/15
Rob, how tall do you think Jeb is? He's usually listed at 6'3", occasionally 6'4".
[Editor Rob: he was described 6ft 3 over 20 years ago, he could look a good 4 inches taller than george w]
Jason said on 7/Aug/15
Jeb looked at least 2.5 inches taller than Donald Trump during last night's GOP debate. Bush clearly looks tall.
TJE said on 26/Jul/15
Jeb looks about 189 with Jimmy Fallon, but Fallon wears shoes a cm thicker than the regular dress shoe. 191 peak and 190 now is possible.

Doesn't look 6'3" there. Could have lost height, of course.
Tunman said on 26/May/15
@Rampage
Quite surprising indeed that Bush Sr was able to push near 6'3 looking with Reagan even in his 60's but listing him 6'2 would suggest that he wasn't more than that.Pics are easily deceiving due to angles.
What about jeb?he looks about 6'3
Sean5 said on 16/Feb/15
Nowadays 5'10 maybe 5'10.5 but no way under that, doesn't look more than 3 inches shorter than 6'1 Obama

Steve said on 19/Jan/15
I doubt George W is any taller than 5'10". President's heights are always unflated.

Jimmy Carter was probably no more than 5'8".

I think by the time Reagan was president he had slipped down to just under 6'. I knew an attorney dealing in entertainment law who swore Reagan was 5'11" and routinely wore custom made shoes that gave him at least an extra half an inch over the usual one inch most men's shoes provide.

And I serously doubt Bill Clinton was ever 6'2". More like 6'1" max.
Lebensdorf said on 17/Dec/14
He was probably 5'11 during his tenure, maybe 5'11.75 out of bed. He's clearly smaller now. George Bush, Sr. was 6'2 at peak. He towered Reagan. And Jeb is 6'3.
Joe said on 7/Dec/14
His medical exam on August 2001 listed him as 6'0" and 189 pounds. Who knows if he measured himself in shoes. I think he is 5'11". I am about 6'0.5" barefoot and I saw his statue at Madame Tussaud's and the statue was a bit shorter than me.

Bush thinks 5"11 is a little guy?? Maybe for a president loll..

He's from quite a tall family and remember that he's from Texas, everything is bigger down there and 5 ft 11 would be considered small by a lot of people no doubts.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Nov/12
"George Bush Sr. height: 6 ft 2.5 in (189cm)"

Nowhere near 6'2" anymore let alone 6'2.5" !!. Just saw the news and he's easily an inch shorter than Obama, GB sr. is at most a flat 6 ft now but he's getting pretty old. He's finally lost height, still looked pretty tall in the last decade or so.

Let's face it, we're all obsessed with height on the site, but ANYONE who calls Bush anything other than 5ft 11 just doesn't have a clue about height, in my opinion. A Blatant 5ft 11, 179 MINIMUM which again is basically 5ft 11. 179/180. 181 in shoes. I am 100% correct.

1 in shorter than 6" schwarzenegger. 3 in shorter than 6'2" obama. 5'11" All of the evidence shows...of course if you disagree with his politics he instantly shrinks lol.
hey i know that guy said on 11/Aug/12
avi is correct, 5-11 has to be his height in dress loafers. he's 5-10 max. he is definitely 3+ inches shorter than obama in photos with the two of them.
avi said on 4/Aug/12
i think he is 5'10. 5'11 is his shoe height.

I think 5'11.5 peak. He is taller than a lot of people think. I still think he is 5'10.5

Saw him in person in 2004. I was the same height then even though I was just a kid. I am 5'8 and he had a clear 3 inches on me so I think he was about 5'11.25". He looked just a bit taller than my brother who is 5'11".
steven said on 16/Jan/12
5'10 and nothing. he can look 5'9.5 as well.

5 ft 11.25 (1.81 m) peak. These days he could dip under 5ft 11.

If bush stays 5'11 obama is naturally up 6'2. Impossible 5'11.. he is not even 5'10 @ best.. 177cm would be fair..
Mr. R said on 26/Oct/11
Folks, I saw bthe documentary "Journeys with George" and the interviewer asks him "what is he gonna do for the little guy"? He says, "I am the little guy". "Did you see Jeb, I'm ABOUT 5-11, Jeb is 6-3". The word ABOUT tells us that he is bet 5-10 and 5-11.

Bush is 5'11 in dress shoe. 177cm barefoot.

It is official that Abraham Lincoln is the tallest President at 6'4",then LBJ(6'4"),and then the shortest is James Madison at 5'4".Bush,Nixon,Taft,Cleveland,etc..were all 5'11-5'11.5 guys,and then others like Harding,Garfield,Ford,were all 6'.
LAN Jiao said on 15/Sep/11
president obama barack was roughly 6ft1. so obama 184-185cm yet i can see bush was about 3inch shorter than obama. bush gota be 177-178cm barefoot and 180cm(5"11)in shoe.

"but if you where 6 foot back then you where considered tall"

As it still is. And last I checked 5-10 isnt the average, 5-9 is.

Actually, 6ft is only "above average" now, as it's within a deviation.I mean saying 6ft is "tall" is the equivalent of saying that 5ft8 is "short". Also, the average height for a WHITE MALE is supposedly 5ft10.in now, though I think that might be a tad generous, as I'm a little under 5ft9 at night and feel at least a weak average.
Alex2 said on 11/Sep/11
Doesn't look 5'11 next to 6'1 Obama, Id say 5'10.5 is closer to the truth.
JXD said on 28/Aug/11
I'd say 5'11 on the money now. He's always looked average-ish. I don't think he's really lost that much height either. I'd buy 5'11.5 at most in his younger years.

From what I read George Washington was measured as 6'3.5" after he died and his body was frozen. From what I've read, freezing the body will result in a slight increase in the cadaver's length (by about 1.5 inches).

Bush had solid posture at start of his presidency. Solid 5-11 to 6 foot. The good posture is almost all gone, he's more of a 5-10 to 5-11 guy now.

I actually met the man, Bush is a solid 5'11", not really tall but I would not call him short. I wonder how many US Presidents though were below 6'? Almost all the successful ones were tall men.

Michael Jordan was always listed as 6'6" when he was only 6'4", Arnold Swartzenegger was always listed as 6'2" when he is only 6'. Men always exaggerate their height. Obama wears height boosting shoes which makes him look 6'3" instead of the 6'+ he actually is. He is a total narcissist and creep.

I've seen a few celebrities do it, it might add half an inch.]
Mr. R said on 20/Nov/10
Josh, official medical records "stretch" the truth as well. The nearly 6 foot story became popular especiall when W ran against John Kerry who was 6-4. I saw the doc that Rob mentions above, "Journeys with George" and he does say "I'm....ABOUT 5-11", and he pauses before he says it. I think that he is btw 5-10 and 5-11, probably closer to 5-10 side.
Randy as in Random said on 19/Nov/10
yeah i'm pretty sure 5'11 is right. saw him on Leno and looks about the same, but seems to have bad posture. Leno was straight but Bush's neck was leaning a bit forward and they were almost the same. Leno being very slightly taller. Probably 6' peak and now about 5'10.75" that's my guess

Official medical records are the most accurate as they measure your height and weight simultaneously, and it is far more accurate than "someone's" estimation or opinion. 'Dubbya' is 5'11.75" or just about 6'0". Barry is 6'1" and probably closer to 6'2". Keep in mind that Bush Jr. lifted weights several days per week and is/was in pretty good shape, especially for a president.

Almost everyone fudges a little in terms of height. I have a friend whose uncle is a big contributor in Missouri and he accompanied hime to a dinner where President Bush spoke. Saoid both he and uncle are almost exactly 5'10",- max. - and next to the President (all in similarly-styled shoes), wasn't a 1/4-inch difference among the three of them - so probably 5'11" claim is just minimal exaggeration - 5'10" or 5'9-3/4" correct.
Nathan said on 28/May/09
He is not 5'11". I personally met George W. Bush in my hometown of San Angelo in 1997, he was then Governor of Texas and we were naming a new building at my University after him or someone in the Bush family and he was there for the opening of this building. I am 5' 10.5" maybe 5'11" on a tall day, and he was DEFINITELY shorter than me. I distinctly remember looking downward while exchanging greetings and shaking his hand. I would estimate maybe 2 inches shorter, but possibly only one.
don said on 27/May/09
no way is Pres. Bush 5'11", I just watched Jay Leno, and they showed footage of him over the years with different presidential candidates and Leno next to Bush was at least one full inch taller. I didnt seen footwear but no way is Pres. Bush 5' 11"
Christian said on 17/May/09
In these clip you can see when Obama enters the studio and shakes hands with Leno and Letterman. He looks 2.5 inches taller than Leno, maybe even more and the same height as Letterman. Of course it is not the best angels but roughly I would say he is about 6'1

About 5'11" means he is a solid 5'10.5" Rob, since you try to maintain accuracy on your listings i'll suggest you list him at 5'10.5"(HIS TRUE HEIGHT) It doesn't really matter if he claims 5'11" cos he is only 0.5" under
Doug said on 5/Apr/09
Yeah he does have a boyish face and always gives an illusion of being short, especially for his family where his father GB Senior is about the best example you can give of a legit 6'2". I noticed he stands taller than a lot of politicians and people at 5'11" as it is on the taller side of average but short for his family, but can't see anything more.

mcfan said on 26/Feb/09
I think he is 5'11 at the most. Even his father put 6'1 down on his driver's license but was always considered 6'2. Even Bill Clinton was only I believe 6'1.5 even though he said 6'2.5. Maybe they're talking in shoes?

Bush looked a good 3 inches shorter then Obama in the footage yesterday of them walking together side by side on the way to the Inauguration. If Bush is really 5ft11, he is one of the shortest and stockiest looking 5ft11 guys I've ever seen. If Obama is 6ft1, then Bush has got to be more like 5ft10!

I am 5'10 1/2" and I can tell you very confidently that John Key is in the range of 5'9 1/2" and 5'10".

Now, in one of those pics they look almost the same height, but for me in the other two Bush is an inch taller. Therefore I think Bush is either 5'11" or 5' 10 1/2". No great height scandal here I'm afraid folks.

in all honesty, he looks 5'9" from far away, but up close, he looks 6'0"
Ed(1) said on 13/Nov/08
Dee that's a good question, because he comes across consistently on TV and in pictures as a 5ft9-5ft10 guy tops! Standing 5ft11 with the 1.5 inch cowboy boots he wears from time to time would put him at 6ft0.5, and at least to me he has never looked that tall! In the most recent footage of Obama and Bush walking around the White House, Obama looked to have a solid 3 inches on him, and I'd peg him at 6ft1 give or take a bit.

5ft10 sounds more accurate for Bush, maybe 5ft9.5! He has a very similar build to Matt Damon who is listed at 5ft10, but many claim is more 5ft8-5ft9!
Clay said on 13/Nov/08

Shoelace said on 11/Nov/08
He appears to be slightly shorter than Michelle Obama. I'm sure she had on high heels but I also imagine he was wearing cowboy boots. When you see him in pictures, he's nearly always the shortest one of the men and often appears to be shorter than the woman. I can't imagine he's much taller than 5'7"...minus the boots.

I love Bush first of all, so my guess on his height is not bias because I think he is shorter than 5'11, maybe 5'10 or a little over. I remember seeing a pic that had a bunch of 6'0+ politicians and Bush looking very small next to them, several inches shorter and it said "guess bush forgot his lifts that day". Might of just been a Bush-Hater making a joke who knows, but President of the US is a very powerful position, I've heard lots of them need to be seen as a strong powerful leader so they get face lifts and wear elevator shoes to help appearance, they prolly each polish their looks to the extreme, which is a good thing. Personally I think Mccain is more 5'7 max, but he's got my vote...

If Bush got already measured 5'11 3/4" one time, then he's around 6 feet in the morning. Stating his height as 6 feet wouldn't be wrong because he is almost two inches shorter than Arnold Schwarzenegger and if Arnold was 6'1 1/2", then Bush has to be something around 6 feet.

5ft 11 isn't tiny either Ja Z not laughable tiny. He looks the same height as Tony Blair in their many meetings and Blair is 6ft I recall. So I guess his 5ft11.5-.75 claim will be about right. When he says he is the little guy it's because his family members are taller than him.

He's clearly 1.76-1.78 mt to my eyes, never 1.80 barefoot

President Bush walked past me at Kirtland AFB, NM a few years ago. I was 6 - 10 feet away from him. I'm 5' 10" and the President was much shorter than I. I would estimate his height as 5' 6" - 5' 8".

on arriving at Amsterdam, HOlland, i was surprised at how short i felt. I am 5'11 and even the children seemed huge. I felt like i was in the land of giants. even the staircases were larger than i was used to...

Sarkozy is a major lift wearer, Mo.

I went to Germany and found the men to be taller than Americans, but the women seemed much, much taller than American women.

I was curious about his height because there's some recent photos of him next to France's Sarkozy (5,4"?) and though Bush is much taller, he's not immensely towering over him.

Bush does look shorter than 5-11 a lot.

Bush is only 2 inches taller than McCain. McCain's biographies state he is 5'7". I think he used lifts to look almost 5'9" at his debates with the much taller Romney. But it is well documented for years that he is 5'7". Bush is a strong 5'9" who occasionally uses lifts or cowboy boots to look 5'11"ish.

Does Bush wear lifts?

If he got mesured at 5'11.75 or 5'11.5 i don't understand why he says "I'm a little guy, i'm about 5'11"
He could also say "I'm 5'11.75" or "I'm about 6'0", but if he's rerally a little over 5'11, why does he downgrade himself??
Guys usually NOT downgrade themselves, especially (proudly) presidents, because of this i'm very suspicious if he's at least a tad under 5'11 ...

If Bush already got measured as 5'11 3/4" then his real height could be 6 feet.

The average white American male height 20-39 is 5'9.5'', the median 5'10.5''

Buildwise is a different story.
Rocky said on 14/May/08
Bush is definitely 5'11'' or less, not 6'1'' as sometimes listed.

Here's a reference point with 6'0'' Diana Taurasi: Click Here

That is assuming that Taurasi's athletic height and weight is not even listed more favorably than it really is.

i am french and on my country the average height is 175 FOR the man.i m 5 11 and I think I am normal
MD said on 9/May/08
Actually, the average height for an white American male (20-39), which was measured only a few years ago, is just over 5'10" (5'-10.2")

Tucker Carlson estimated him at 5-10 when interviewed on Bubba Love Sponge radio show.
About national averages below: When countries list their averages, they are listing all adults, even old people who have shrunk. It is clear that the average 20something is going to be taller, maybe even more than an inch taller than this average. I would bet the average American 20something is near 5-11 now and can believe the 6-1 claims of some Europeans.
