Ever wonder what former presidents do after their time leading the country comes to an end? Dog portraiture is apparently a reasonable follow-up. According to The Atlantic, George W. Bush is spending his retirement putting canines on canvas.

Turns out even even if you are retiring from the position of "Leader of the Free World," the hobbies you pick up afterwards are strangely normal. Former president Bush has spent the past several years learning to paint, with his favorite subject being dogs. We hope this includes his adorable Scottish Terrier and former first dog Barney.

Those who worked with Bush during his two term presidency are surprised by this new pastime.

"I find it stunning that he has the patience to sit and take instruction and paint," a former aide told New York Magazine.

Along with painting canines, former president Bush is said to also enjoy capturing Texas landscapes. Aside from painting, Bush's post-work days sound like those of the retired folks you may know, consisting mostly of eating out at restaurants and playing golf.

Name one war crime or act of treason please. And not what comes from a blog or talking point. As well, would you please provide links to your sources?

All I want to hear about G. W. B. is that he's been arrested for war crimes and treason!
