    Many didn't like him but frankly I think he was OK...Sure..he was a dry drunk but so are many American leaders. Nixon was too. No question about it....both were above par in foreign relations.

    Obama is shite! Kissinger said Obama would "need deep guidance on any issues of significance (foreign policy and procedure)''

    A President may not and cannot rely on the Secretary of State!!!!

    He can certainly paint better than I ever could, at best he is an amateur painter just as he was an amateur President, a sophomoric person who got to where he was at by virtue of his last name, sadly this is common in America.

    Re: George Walker Bush exhibits his portraits of world leaders.

    It should not be overlooked that for many people dealing with their personal demons (a recovering alcoholic in this case) painting is therapeutic...with Winston Churchill coping with his chronic depression by painting, and writing....George W. has clearly expressed his impression of various world leaders through portraits that speak to his face, to face experiences......personal impressions are just that...not masterpieces calculated to attract praise for their artistic merit.

    Of course you are right, I was speaking from my perspective, it is easy to forget about places like North Korea, it would be nice if they were never to be heard from again.

    I hold our nation to a higher standard than others, in school we heard countless stories of how the little guy could succeed if he would just try. I still believe in that, success though is a term that changes with the person. To me success means that I am content with simple life style, I don't care about being wealthy or having a "Mc Mansion", I love living in my paid for mobile home and owing no man nothing.

    To others success means money and power, kind of sad, if you ask me, those that have these things are so afraid of losing their hold on them that they have tried to put a low ceiling on how far those who were born into a meager existence can go.

    It is tragic that we see "leaders" in all nations pop up by virtue of heritage rather than ability, sham is indeed a good word for politics in our nation.

    By the same token it would be equally unfair were we to reject potential leaders, who merit their place on the ladder of opportunity simply because they had the misfortune to be born into a dynasty that provides a nation with a constant flow of leaders......justice for all should ensure that equal opportunity should not be denied to those who are born with a silver spoon.....what ever our particular feelings may be on the suitability of George W....to lead his nation.

    Margaret Thatcher's legacy is much more popular in the United States, than in her home country....a powerful political leader whose humble origins belied her sense of manifest destiny....likewise, the man who replaced her, John Major rose to power from a humble background...I am trying to recall a British prime minister, whose father also occupied the same post....may be you can assist me?

    Re: George Walker Bush exhibits his portraits of world leaders.

    Few of the members who sit in the House of Lords are actually hereditary peers, most are appointed as life peers the result of their services to the community, or as former members of the House of Commons who bring the wealth of their experience to bear without being unduly restricted by political allegiances....

    Effective political power in the United Kingdom is a matter for the House of Commons where all members are elected by the people....which is why Winston Churchill refused the offer of a earldom, fearing he would lose real influence having to vacate The Commons.

    Most hereditary peers do not attend The Lords whereas, life peers are a much more dedicated bunch continuing in their chosen profession.....actual turn out figures are unknown to me.....some years ago I met here in Athens at a cultural event a British life peer who explained to me that as a former Labour Party member of parliament his political beliefs had been restrained by his allegiance to his particular party whereas, in The Lords he was much more able to speak his mind without fear of retribution from the party....despite being a Labour Party nominee....

    Re: George Walker Bush exhibits his portraits of world leaders.

    Politics aside, I think he chooses his background colours well to contrast with the subject in the portraits. If I didn't know he was the POTUS at one time, then, as a painter, I think though there is a child like charm to them, he does actually capture some essence of the subject he's painting. Who else have met so many leaders and painted their portraits? That would be very few on this planet of so many billions of folks. Overall, I think it's a winner this painting as a hobby business.

    There are two. William Pitt the Younger (Prime Minister 1783-1801 and 1804-06) was the son of William Pitt the Elder, 1st Earl of Chatham (PM 1766-68). William Grenville, 1st Lord Grenville (PM 1806-07) was the son of George Grenville (PM 1763-65).

    The House of Lords is for the most part full of retired and failed politicians. The House of Lords Act 1999 removed the seats of all but 92 hereditary peers.

    Most retiring Prime Ministers were at one time offered Earldoms, the most recent being Harold Macmillan who was created Earl of Stockton. Churchill was actually offered, and as you say declined, a Dukedom which is the highest rank in the peerage.

    Currently, 87 peers out of 778 are hereditary.

    Like his 8 years of president he has no taste for art.

    He isn't and has never been a recovering alcoholic. He is a dry drunk. Recovering alcoholics have to take responsibility for their actions in order to "recover". He is the polar opposite of a recovering alcoholic.

    There are some people like Emily Dickinson who nurture their genius in private because they actually care about their art.

    I would contrast her with Mr. Bush who seems in a rush to publicize his little hobby. Perhaps he's lost any reasonable kind of judgement, being used to flattery and privilege.

    These amateurish efforts ought to have been pursued as a strictly private affair. Without the oddity of their origin, they wouldn't find much welcome outside the walls of a shabby coffee shop.

    His cat painting posted above could easily be a poster, a greeting card, or other commercial art.

    And, has been noted, he captures the spirit of his world leader subjects, if not perfect likenesses.

    From an unsurprisingly complimentary Dallas article:



    It is a very good assessment and I was surprised to find virtually my own thoughts in the excerpt above.

    For anyone relishing the easy pickings of the former president's amateurish accomplishment, I challenge you to execute as competent a self-portrait as Bush's.

    GWB's paintings: Google images as art:

    George Bush's paintings bear uncanny resemblance ... to Google images

    Art critics point out that 30 portraits of world leaders appear to have been based on photos thrown up by search engine
    ....
    Rather than have his subjects sit for him or use printed photographs, Bush seems to have based his portraits on the first picture thrown up by the search engine.
    ....
    http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...-google-images
    I guess he did learn to use The Google. And Wikipedia.

    That George W. has refreshed his memory, with Google sourced images of the world leaders does not change the fact that the portraits he has exhibited are his workmanship......

    Using a photograph of my late partner I commissioned a local artist to paint his portrait ...the result impressed me...

    Some of them aren't all that bad. The one of John Howard makes him look like he's got his cheeks filled with acorns for the winter though

    Honestly, I can't paint for shit, and these are better than I could produce. There's a certain something about them. I don't know what it is.
