Artistic Works of George W. Bush

putin

Many view George W. Bush as one of the most moronic Presidents in U.S. history. He was not so eloquent with words, but never faulted for his personality. A "good ole boy" from Texas, and in fact a very diverse and interesting human being, notwithstanding his politics. Highly social, approachable, athletic, and even artistic. Today on a popular American news program, he revealed his portraits of various world leaders. What do you think of his interpretation of Putin? The eyes, in my view, are very compelling. Bush discusses Putin around minute 1:30 in the below video, saying "Vladimir is a person who, in many ways, views the U.S. as an enemy, although he wouldn't say that. I felt he viewed the world as either the U.S. benefits and Russia loses, or vice versa. I tried to dispel him of that notion..." And then, Bush tells a funny story about Putin and his dog.

Here's the interview with his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, a correspondent on the news show. Warning - she smiles. A LOT! :)



Pleasant weekend to all!

Omg! I see Russian pop music is as bad as the American version!! But, the Putin impersonator in the video is good. :) I read this week that his divorce is now final. Does he already have a young girlfriend?

I couldn't believe his daughter was a correspondent with a network! Will wonders never....never mind. I watch ABC in the morning. Anyway, he's not a bad artist. I liked Putin's picture anyway, LOL...

Yes, she does segments sometimes for the Today Show. I'm sure she's a nice girl, but I find her sooo annoying! Her personality is too cheerful and chatty! :) These are not good journalistic qualities.

He made some cute portraits of his Scottish terrier - that's much better :)

Yeah, cuter than Putin. :) And Bush's self-portraits are good. I don't think I could do a portrait of myself. It's weird.

Who is Mr. Selfie, Obama? I don't follow him on Instagram. :)) Now there is the most annoying song on the radio about "selfies"!! Have you heard it? I think it's meant to be a parody, but I can't take it. So bad!! There's no hope for our youth if this is what they consider entertainment! I feel like an old lady saying that, but it's truth!

No! Then, he would be showing his teeth and fully smiling, not just grinning. :))

I always liked his wife, Laura. Really beautiful woman, and seemingly compassionate. I think they raised good children.

His portraits are fairly ugly, dreadful for a pro, but not so bad for an amateur. I never considered him stupid, despite his occasional bloopers. I saw his reading list once - no stupid person would be interested in what he read and could even digest it. He's pretty smart, trying to seem simple and humble. IMHO if he would have been wise enough to keep Iraq and Afghanistan a short and swift punitive military operations instead of long occupation wars with a stupid idea of forcefully building democracy where it can never ever work, he's be a very good president with a good approval rating, one of the better ones.

Of course after 9/11 G.W.Bush could not ignore reports that Hussein had his chemical weapon again and could use it against americans. But then turned out that Hussein either didn't have any weapons of mass destruction at all or hid it well. So leaving Iraq in ruins would look really bad.

In Afghanistan Americans needed to catch Ben Laden.

Besides I've read that millitary itself was against soon withdrawal.

If you watch the video, you'll see his family also was very surprised by his new found passion for art. They never expected it.

Dubba may be a pretty good chum as they say on the other side of the See.
As I understand, he is likeable to the rednecks because he is stupid and to the money bags because he belongs to the club of Yalees.
When I lost to him the first time I hoped - well, there is Uncle Dick who would keep him in line. But this Dick turned out a thug with a lower case "d".
His mom whom I respect should have kept him as far from politics as possible.

He inflicted a hard measurable damage to this country.
In the Davis-Harvard HONK! parade each fall, even now, the veterans carry banners "Imprison Bush!"

He has aged unmercifully. Does he still drink?

At least Bush seems approachable, like a normal person to some extent. In comparison, Cheney comes across as a pompous, elitist asshole. I don't think Bush looks bad for his age! He no longer drinks and is really into fitness. It's always amazing though to view photos of Presidents when they first take Office and then when they leave. They all age a lot, with more gray hair and wrinkles by the end of their terms. The same has happened to me since I became a lawyer. :)) The image of Bush I'll remember most is the shot of him on Sept. 11th, when he was in the room reading to young children and someone whispered the news of the WTC crash in his ear. The look on his face at that moment is legendary.

It's all good. Hopefully, he stays busy painting and won't return to politics.

Yes, I hope so too. He's completely out of the political scene, and doesn't even like to express opinions on hot political topics when being interviewed. Smart man, finally ready to enjoy his life and family on the ranch, and not be drawn back into the chaos that always follows politicians.
