This is interesting...

John Quincy Adams and George Walker Bush are the only two sons of Presidents to also become President.

John Quincy Adams used a middle name to differentiate himself from his father, John Adams. George W. Bush uses a middle initial to differentiate himself from his father, George Bush.

John Quincy Adams' father was Vice President for 8 years before succeeding the President he served under, George Washington.
George W. Bush's father was Vice President for 8 years before succeeding the President he served under, Ronald Reagan.

John Quincy Adams' father was a one-term President.
George W. Bush's father was a one-term President.

John Adams lived to see his son become President.
George Bush lived to see his son become President.

In the election of 1824, John Quincy Adams received less popular votes than his Democratic opponent, Andrew Jackson.
In the election of 2000, George W. Bush received less popular votes than his Democratic opponent, Al Gore.

The election of 1824 was put to the House of Representatives, who chose Adams.
The election of 2000 was put to the Supreme Court, who chose Bush.

In the 1828 election campaign, Adams' opponents accused him of corruption and public plunder.
In the 2004 election campaign, Bush's opponents accuse his administration of corruption (Halliburton, Enron) and of turning a budget surplus into a budget deficit.


It's interesting how there are strange similarities between people and events in American history... the other ones being, of course, the parallels between the Lincoln assassination and the Kennedy assassination, the two Johnson presidents, as well as the assassination attempts against President Garfield in 1881 and President Reagan in 1981 (in both cases, the wound wasn't fatal - Garfield was killed by the doctors).

Did a war start under JQA or any conspiracies uncovered.
I'd like to know because history courses are full of conspiracies,
the ones the powers that be let us know about.
Boston Tea Party and garbage like that, nothing new.
No core beams in the history books yet.
Can't wait for JFK and Junior to take up a few paragraphs.
Yea that will be sweet.
Oh yeah my hero and commander of the ether, which does not exist
according to our every day heroes of establishment science, Tesla
who's notes unlike those of JQA perhaps are locked up from prying
eyes. The Tesla science and histories we get is a pack of slanted rhetoric.

I haven't seen these ones before. They are probably coincidence, though. There is also another more famous set of parallels between Lincoln and Kennedy. I'll let you google those; should be really easy to find.
