W is every bit as good an artist as he was president.

Bush specializes in dog paintings.

Seriously.  Here's one of them:

I respect him for his ability to walk away and not shiat on his successor, I even like his humor..  His ability to just walk away and humor killed his credibility though as someone who can give the order to drop bombs on countries.  I like  Bush as a person. Seems like a genuinely nice guy who you could sit back and have some laughs over a beer.

He's a much better artist than president. If his artistic skills were on par with his presidential skills, it would look like a stick figure drawn by a drunken, mentally impaired blind child with Parkinson's, holding the crayon between his teeth.

That mentality works on both sides of the aisle though... it is what made Clinton more popular than with just the core democratic base as well.   And it is what makes Chris Christie a more formidable candidate than he'd otherwise be.

So, if we put an afro on him, he could be the "Anti-Bob Ross" on PBS... painting dogs & people as opposed to landscapes with no living things.

/at least, I'm pretty sure he never had animals in his pictures, I know he didn't have people, and I thought when he suggested "here's where a little critter might be", he was just suggesting it could live in some bush or tree he made, we never actually saw any animals.

Former presidents Carter and Clinton have headed up various global enterprises that have built homes, cured diseases, educated people, etc.  Both are also much sought-after speakers, in both political and non-political arenas.

Please name me what diseases Carter and/or Clinton have "cured."  Seriously... If they have, I'm unaware and would like to know.

Can you also let me know how much $$$ per year Carter, Clinton and Bush 43 make off of giving speechs and making appearances?  I'd love to know.

Clinton was popular because the country was at peace and running well. He was paying down the national debt (and conservatives were criticizing him for it).

Clinton's approval ratings exceed Reagan's. And that includes after impeachment.

Compare that to Bush losing two wars, killing more Americans than Bin Laden (and 100s of 1000s of Iraqis), wrecking the budget, and sinking us into the worst economic debacle since the Great Depression.

Further, Bush holds various charity events related to supporting organizations that work with veterans. holding golf tournaments and bike rides.     http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/president-george-bush-golf-tournament-w ounded-veterans/story?id=20392416">http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/pre sident-george-bush-golf-tournament-w ounded-veterans/story?id=20392416

He prefers to stay out of the limelight, unlike Carter and Clinton, yet even *Huffington Post* rates him favorably to Carter and Clinton in the humanitarian realm.

You don't like him, IntertubeUser.  We get that.  But you don't get to ignore the facts, which is the man does a lot of charity work, on par if not more so than Carter and Clinton.

I was talking more about the qualities that got them into office, not really how they did once they got in there.  We don't know how Christie will do either, but, was just pointing out he has some of the same personal qualities that Clinton & Bush had that will make him attractive to the "middle 20%" of general election voters that decide presidential elections after the 40% that (almost) always vote democrat and 40% that (almost) always vote republican.

I do.  If you have $150K saved in 401k and a mortgage that's on its way of being paid off, and you're only 31, you can count on $3.5M by the time you're 65, which is ample enough, assuming the residence you currently have is what you will retire in.  Not as great as my grandparents had it, but eh.  $3M by 65 is the magic number that everyone in their 20s and early 30s should be shooting for.  Good luck.
