george w bush paintings today show portraits putin dad landscapes crazy

It's time for today's pop quiz:

What do Adolph Hitler, George Zimmerman, and former President George W. Bush have in common?

If you said, "each enjoys painting!" then you are RIGHT!!!

(Other acceptable answers include "each has a Y-chromosome" and "none of them stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.")

It's true, though - former president GWB is technically an artist!!!

We know this because he flaunted his impressive array of paint-colored canvases in front of Matt Lauer on Friday's Today show!

Curious to see his take on V-lad Putin? The Dalai Lama? The skull of a Texas longhorn?

Ch-ch-check out the rest of his exhibit, The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Ha! Regardless of how hard you think he worked while commanding our armies into multiple wars and leading our economy in the wrong direction, he spent nearly a decade doing it and, well, that's something!

Whether you're serving frozen yogurt or leading a nation off of a fiscal cliff so dramatic you'd think it was the ending to Thelma & Louise, eight years at any job is a long time and we can't blame him for enjoying his retirement!

We're glad you found a hobby, Mr. President! And we're eternally grateful this is the extent of its impact on our life!

    But if Obama painted them all you liberal losers would love it. Why don't you leave the guy alone. Obama is just as bad a president as Bush was. You guys are so stupid you don't see it. Oh, wait the Democrats give you a monthly check for all the good press. Obama sucks!

    That inanimate portrait of him would still do a better job of being president than what Obama has managed in the last 5 years.

    Maybe he should take up fishing.

    He's got something there. He should keep at it. He captured his dad and himself and the others in a unique way.

    I like his landscape paintings better than the portraits, seem more true to life.
    Agree with many of you about Obama, voted for him once, the first term only because I could not stomach McCain/Palin. Surprised he won a second term. And he has also kept most of the troops there Perez.

    Ohh I love all of these comments. He has ability for sure. And yes Obama making finger paintings would land him the Purlitzer Prize!

    Re: caravaggio fonzarelli – Ha, not sure if you're being facetious. Not saying they're good, but he would benefit from some good lessons to help get over the
    not quite there yet newbie painting hump. He does have an eye.

    You are a dick. You should have SOME respect for a former president.

    Re: Kristin – I agree with Kristin. You're being a dick. What happened during the first months of his presidency was horrendous (9/11) and who knows how your "king" Obama would have handled it. Whether you agree with his politics or not has nothing to do with his paintings. Considering I have no artistic talent, I think they're pretty damn good.

    what president bush is doing is the most respectable thing one could do. he had a job as president and now he is moving on and spending his rétirement working on hobbies… is that so bad? all you are telling people is if you are not amazing at something stop because your not good enough to try. i hope you find a way to teach your son a different lesson. you post a lot about people who are gay an struggles they go through just trying to express themselves to this world. i would think someone who is so sensitive to other peoples feeling would never cause someone else to feel what they bring to the table in this world isn't good enough. you owe an apology to not only president bush but to any person who does the uncomfortable and tries to do something that doesn't come naturally.
    NO ONE SHOULD EVER BE EMBARESSED TO TRY

    Re: carol

    Honestly, you are so ignorant for picking on a former president when you don't see the disaster that is in office now and driving this country into the ground. Barry is all smoke and mirrors and it is people like youu who voted for him because he ran a great social media campaign. Wake up people!!!!!
