A number of Bush family photographs and personal emails were posted online by the hacker, who goes by the name of Guccifer.

According to the Smoking Gun website, the emails which were sent between 2009 and 2012 contain details about the state of the former president's health as well as the home addresses, mobile phone numbers and email addresses of dozens of members of the Bush family.

I got the idea he would have been a good person if his parents hadn't been Dorothy and Prescott. It's surprising he didn't end up like Dubya, but louder .

32. GHW Bush is one of the people on this planet that have made me believe evil exists. He is

seriously nothing as portrayed by the media. Their public personas are complete ruses.

Try 'Family of Secrets' by Russ Baker, chilling. Biography of GWB - 'Fortunate Son' author, JH Hatfield ended up dead.

You do not mess with the Bushes, ever.

49. He might not be a beginner. Maybe he has been painting for years.

That painting is pretty good, actually.

This makes me sad. I wonder if his family supported his talent as an artist. Probably not. He is a better artist than he was president. It makes me wonder what could have been.

20. One of the things I love most about DU


is the conditional regard people have. Had a DUer posted that picture, it'd be recced 100 times and praise would be bouncing off the walls. But since a warcriminalblahblahblah did it, it's the scribbling of an untalented hack (don't feel too bad - that's pretty much how the art world already works).

I love it.

22. This was painted by George W. Bush?

This is creepy. At one of the early press dinners they volunteered a picture of George W Bush in the bathtub with his naked kids. They also volunteered a nekkid picture of young Jebbie.

Personally, I thought it was TMI. But that's how scoundrels operate. If they volunteer the results of all their questionable decisions, then, somehow, that makes them okay.

teenage male prostitutes 'touring' the WH after midnight back in 1989. He is such a point of light for young people.

54. Hitler was a fine classical painter

Google hitler watercolors. They are very nice 19th-century-style architectural renderings. Hitler's problem is he tried to gain admittance to a school of the avant garde, and they didn't want an antimodernist to attend.

Bush, otoh, paints like a fifth-grader.

at one time Jennifer was widely known to be Papa Bush's mistress. He was told to knock it off if he wanted to be VP and maybe POTUS (more like POS) and they say he did. I doubt it.

50. This is a pretty picture, but in fact it is not better than W's.

W's paintings are surprisingly good. I had no idea he painted and I think it's sad that he didn't stick to painting instead of ruining entire countries.

Winston Churchill's painting is lovely but it is not particularly good. It's very two dimensional. Notice how everything looks flat. The columns at the end of the terrace look flat, not three dimensional. The ivy growing on the walls looks flat. It's a lovely scene but he was not a great artist by any means. Still much better than I could do!
