Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Former President George W. Bush is releasing a new book of his paintings, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors, in February 2017. The book will include 66 portraits and a four-panel mural depicting American service members and veterans. Bush said it is "more than an art book. This is a book about the men and women who have been tremendous national assets in the Armed Forces." The paintings in the book will also go on display in an exhibit at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas from March to October.

I guess painting is a good hobby when you have to go into hiding for the rest of your life because you brought such death and destruction into the world.

Poignant Onion video.

The only people in the world dumber than Bush are his supporters. Bush will eventually exit this life but through his supporters and admirers, who will unfortunately reproduce and fill the heads of their offspring with vacuous and distorted notions of bravery and honor, the stupidty will live on and on for generations to come...

Yeah. Intelligent members of society. He's still welcome in redneck towns and military bases, despite sending thousands of them to die for no reason. They're not too bright.

When asked about the book, Reince Priebus stated he was unfamiliar with the artist, his work, family or background...

GW Bush temporarily converted me from a lifelong conservative to an Obama voter for two terms. Obama's second term brought me back to fiscal and Constitutional conservatism and the need for honest government of and for the people and not the globalists and elites. We have allowed corrupt unethical fools of both Parties to run our country into the ground so that their donor elites often with multiple loyalties can run us into the ground even further.

Some people are enamored with artsy-ness because it gives them an excuse and a claim then that they can't be rednecks. After all they are the elites. I had a discussion with a friend recently (and artist) who hates Trump because he says he draws rednecks. These so called elites have a high opinion of their crowd and it is highly overrated. When all the other fundamental necessities of life are solved for average people then comes time for art. I suspect Bush is trying to get back some respect from the Bohemian hoity-toity crowd that haven't a clue about anything except social status.

"Bush releasing an Art Book"

Color by number?

Shrub's masterpiece has to be his Jackson Pollock-like effort at ground zero created from the blood and guts from all of the WTC jumpers he failed to protect.

if i believed in the "soul" concept, i'd gladly offer it up in exchange for the ability to see how history portrays us in say, 200 years from now.
clinton i regret but accept...trump is like that flesh eating bacteria, if we let him get loose then we're all screwed. bush is releasing an art book of his "paintings". and if i could say that it was just a product of american culture, i could live with that. i'd just figure the rest of the world would be there to help us out. but it's not just us. the whole damn planet seems to have lost it's mind. i just don't see anything on the horizon except the inevitability of things getting

I have a lot more respect for a former president who worked to better the world a la Jimmy Carter vs this scumbag who only cares about himself

Trump is a scumbag in the same vein as W, except to a far greater degree

Dubya had to do something to escape that nagging little voice in his head. No, I'm not talking about his conscience because he doesn't seem to have one.

That nagging voice is his Dad saying "I told you so, I told you so, I told you so."

"He should be doing this from prison."

LOL ~ From your post to God's inbox.

But I guess we'll have to be content that the Bush Dynasty is finished.

I can't think of any other purpose he served.
