George W. Bush: Painter-in-Chief?

Not really fair for his art to be critiqued by "critics" since these paintings weren't meant to be public. He didn't hang them in a gallery. They were private. I assume this hacking was meant to be a dose of his own medicine. It was under Bush that the Patriot Act and Homeland Security all came to be. All in all...the emails and paintings are a non-issue. If anything this helped George. He can be seen as a quiet man enjoying the golden years of his retirement. One last thing....sharing paintings of yourself in the shower and bathtub with your family is weird. Just my opinion. Now that's it out there in the open.

I know, I know, that’s a horrendous headline but bear with me for a second. Ever since leaving public life, George W. Bush has kept a relatively low profile, presumably caring for his aged father and spending time with his family. (In truth, if I remember correctly, the former president made national headlines maybe once during the last election cycle). But because a deranged hacker essentially stole his emails and released them to the public, we now know a great deal more about 43 than we should ... including his penchant for the arts.

For those interested, you should...
