Which Vice President served as "acting president" for about eight hours?

Answer:

George W. Bush

An acting president of the United States is an individual who legitimately exercises the powers and duties of the president of the United States even though that person does not hold the office in their own right. To date, two vice presidents—George H. W. Bush and Dick Cheney have been acting president while their presidents were undergoing medical procedures. On July 13, 1985, from 11:28 am to 7:22 am EDT, George H. W. Bush was acting president while Ronald Reagan underwent colon cancer surgery. Various press reports say that for most of his tenure as acting president, Bush played tennis. On two occasions, Dick Cheney was acting president while George W. Bush underwent colonoscopies.
