I think I can see the numbers underneath the paint. He needs to paint thicker.
The old bitch probably would say something like that.
wonder if he plans to make paintings of the funerals of war dead? Rows of flag-draped coffins? War amputees struggling with their new limbs?
They're quite gay, but stupid.
Oh, the humanity!
Next he'll be selling tacky crafts on etsy, or his hand-appliquéd sweaters on QVC.
What a closet case.
Preppy bitch better not start painting clowns.
He's just partaking in a hobbie. Have at it.
Fuck a duck that shit is tacky. Looks like something that would hand in the trailer of some paw watt trash.
This comment posted at OP's link is interesting:
[quote] I posted this in the other thread, but rumors are rampant in the Houston area (where my friend lives) that W has some kind of early onset dementia. All attempts to get him to appear in public are gently turned away, even big money offers. Like Warren Anderson, he'll probably not have to spend his old age worrying about what happened under his watch.
If the paintings were stolen from family emails, do you suppose his personal email really is the "firstname.lastname@example.org" that's shown in the photo?
If he had never been president (in other words - in a just world) the neighbors would have uttered the phrase "He was a quiet boy. He liked to play with guns." [bold]After[/bold] he'd gone off the deep end and shot up a school/place of work.
They'd have shown these paintings on the news as they gave their report.
Bush was a terrible president and probably not a great person outside of that either, but honestly, I think it is extremely petty to make fun of this harmless hobby of his.
I can't even draw a decent stick person, and while his art certainly isn't edgy or even interesting, he can at least paint/draw something that actually looks like a dog or a cat. If it keeps him out of boardrooms, or conferences that help the repubs in anyway, then I am not complaining.
There are countless other things he has done that are far more ridiculous and offensive than these little oil or acrylic paintings.
Totally agree r17. The fags here wish they had his talent.
They're sort of like David Hockney, if Hockney was raised the zombie son of a gang of witches.
I guess it's good that he never had the opinion of you asswipes in mind when he painted them.
LOL. Totally agree with R18. The only talent most of the queens on DL have is anonymously tearing apart people who don't agree with their progressive social agenda.
I cant wait until Jeb is elected in 2016.
^Fine example of dementia gone untreated.
All the elections should just be Clinton, Bush, Clinton, Bush etc until the end of time
These cum buckets don't know shit about art or politics.
Blasphemous disrespectful hags on this site. Sad.
What a hack! Perhaps he should try world domination as an alternative career.
He's trying to fill in retroactively all the missing parallels between his life and Hitler's.
Jeb in 2016. I hope he hangs these pictures right in the Oval office - right after it's fumigated of course.
Diagnosis Frau starring George W. Bush
Paints like a granny, but still much more appealing than Thomas Kinkade.
The only way these paintings would be acceptable is if they were done from the inside of a cell. This man is a war criminal and he should be ashamed as both a Christian and human to spend his days in leisure as millions of lives lay ruined in the wake of his greed.
I disagree with the man's politics but his art is not awful.
Dogs with no legs. Cats buried in pots. Whether or not he has Alzheimers, he's always been a sick fuck.
The only positive thing he's done is poison the name "Bush" in American politics. Yes, Jeb wants to be president, but not even the tea party would want him.
R34 tells the truth.
Don't kid yourself. Even Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'Donnell believe Jeb has a great chance in 2016.
Hell...after Obama, W can get re-elected.
R38 is modeling dementia for us.
Go Fuck yourself, diseased fag at r39. There are gay republicans so fucking deal with it and stop with the offensive posts.
There may be gay Republicans, r40, but IF you are one, you're a prime example why gay Republicans, like all Republicans, are the enemies of gay people.
I say "IF" because anyone who's comfortable throwing around the term "diseased fag" is obviously much more likely to be a straight person with some anti-social personality disorder.
Why are gay Republicans like R40 so illiterate? Is it genuine stupidity or lack of higher education?
R40 knows a lot about diseases, he's been battling AIDS-induced dementia for years.
If art is at one level a self-portrait, Bush's animals convey this: I'm needy, misunderstood, dependent and confused, but at my core loveable. Please love me, despite Everything.
I wish he'd pursued painting rather than politics. But I'm sure the neocons would've found some other schlub to do their bidding.
Don't bash gay Rebublicans. You guys on the left have to fall in lock step with everything the Dems say. " I suck cock, and he's ok with that....well that's good enough for me. Take your head out of your ass...or your boyfriends ass and realize there are other issues besides walking down the aisle with another rump ranger.
I absolutely fucking LOATHE Dumbya, and wish he would be executed for war crimes.
That said, these paintings aren't terrible. Lame and unprofessional, maybe, but not terrible.
And I'll admit, they're better than anything I could paint or draw.
That's funny. Most DL posters spend their day trolling public places for cock, or working minimum wage jobs, and live with parents...and am talking about the posters over 40.
I think I see the next winter caretaker for the Overlook Hotel.
Shockingly, he's quite good. Anyone who says differently is only saying that because they hate him. He's a douche, but he's a good artist. I can't even draw a stick figure.
The National Enquirer says that he has dementia.
[quote]Don't kid yourself. Even Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'Donnell believe Jeb has a great chance in 2016.
And they are?
good analysis, R44
How can anyone say they are good? They give me the creeps, like most "outsider art" and prison art. They reek of mental illness.
I'm liking this new Bush Secretly Has Dementia meme.

I would much rather he spends his time at the ranch painting dogs and cats than trying to maintain a national/international political platform. Let him paint away his days.
They all look a bit like him, especially the eyes.
[quote]trying to maintain a national/international political platform
Bush couldn't do that with any credibility when he was the most powerful man in the world. Without his enabling superstructure, and nothing coherent to say, a platform wouldn't be worth the construction.
Say what you like about Carter, Clinton and (God help us) Blair, but their intelligence and commitment are out there for all to see and debate with. Bush's paintings by contrast are, well, bathetic.
If he's ailing but happy, fine, but as a coda to his hapless and brutal administration this is beyond satire. Cute little paintings don't dispel carnage.
[quote]I wish he'd pursued painting rather than politics.[/quote]
Seriously. Or just been some mid-level businessman who painted on the weekends, enjoyed a round of golf and got quietly drunk in the evenings. Then, I'd actually consider buying one of the paintings at a community art show.
I haven't read the thread but on the first go around someone posited that the paintings were released to make Dubs seem more human. Reading the comments from other websites, I'm inclined to agree.
I think the paintings look like they were done by John Wayne Gacey. He's a fucking war criminal who's killed millions. Just to drive up the price of oil. He'll die old and happy and will have never lost a night's sleep over his crimes.
(also I own a pet supply store w/ lots of work by local artists including 11 year olds and I might put this work in the bathroom because I'm a nice person or scared of the artist if I refused to exhibit their work)
The cross one -- very strange. Looks like a grave at midnight.
I wonder what's behind that one? How did that imagery pop into his head?
I travel all over Europe and have access to literally hundreds of IP addresses.
Trying to ban or block me will only make it worse.
I am harmless.
Get over yourself.
R51. The are the data lounge prophets.
This is hilarious. This site would worship the most repugnant slime of the earth as long as the are "gay friendly ".
As much as I hated Shrub while he was president, I have developed a kind of grudging admiration for him since he left office (if only he'd never held it..). He doesn't criticize Obama, he keeps his nose out of politics unlike his evil puppetmaster Cheney. And the nude self-portraits were Hockneyish but not bad at all.
R57 Carter? He was smart BUT he was the worst President since Herbert Hoover.
