Can anyone make a guess now?

*drumrolls*

Yesh. it is none other than George W. Bush!

Actually Dubya is a rather common nickname given to Bush by his supporters and non-supporters alike. And it is so given because Texans tend to pronounce the letter ‘W’ as, you-guess-it, “dubya”. However, the nickname usually has a slightly derogatory connotation to it as it makes fun of his not-so-perfect English.
