The country's 43rd president, George W. Bush, turned 70 on Wednesday and the Republican received many well wishes from those in his party in the Capitol.  

As for his real family, both Twitter handles belonging to former President George H.W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush aren't very active. But I'm sure they wished him happy birthday in their own way.

He also received a happy birthday from a former White House staffer.
