The haters on the left might not like his work, but we think George W. Bush does pretty well for a rookie!
The President-turned-painter has unveiled several portraits of world leaders, after First Lady Laura pushed him to pursue his inner Van Gogh. His newest collection includes Tony Blair, Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Dalai Lama.
Most interesting, however is a stern-looking Russian President Vladimir Putin, who apparently dissed W’s dog Barney while on visit to America, says 43:
“Vladimir Putin, yeah, I met with him a lot during the presidency,” Bush said.
“Our dear dog Barney, who has a special spot in my heart. I introduced him to Putin, who kind of dissed him, by saying; ‘You call that a dog?’”
When his new world leader paintings were brought out into the public for exhibition, predictably, it didn’t take long for the sad hate-mongers to compare George W. to a dictator who also artistic aspirations – but marched millions of innocent people into ovens.
Take a look at some of these Tweets gathered by Twitchy:
I’ll say this for George W. Bush: In the category of War Criminal Artists, he’s at least as good a painter as Hitler.

George Bush likes to paint. Hitler liked to paint. Bush = Hitler? I’m just asking questions. #911WasAnInsideJob

Can I say George W. Bush’s art exhibit is Hitler’s most contemporary legacy? Or is that too much?

Weird’ Hitler painted before he was a mass murderer and Bush after he was a mass murderer

This is the contemporary Democrat mindset: If you are a Republican, you are the same as a totalitarian mass murderer. Congratulations liberals:
You’ve managed to win over a lot of hearts and minds. I hope you’re proud of yourselves..
