Political cartoonist Mark Fiore wrote about the art show displaying George W. Bush’s original portraits of the “big important people” that he met while serving as president of the United States for two terms. Fiore said he couldn’t resist this story. He wrote: “He’s capturing emotion! He’s showing Putin’s personality! Look! He painted a cuddly duck for his grandchild! … He’s trying to paint his way to a nice cuddly legacy.”
Fiore contends that the former president should spend his time painting other things—such as the “victims of his reckless foreign policy…” Since Dubya chose not to paint them, Fiore thought he’d do it for him.
