I love how Carter and Clinton are nowhere to be seen.

I like that painting. The guy also did one with Democrat Presidents.

I like the painting but I really do not think George Jr is worthy to be in the painting.

Sheesh! Lance, give it a break will ya'? None of 'em were perfect. But they were all 'country first'. Wish I could say the same for the other bunch.

Where the hell is Warren G. Harding?

Great American, good(falsely maligned by pinko historians) President,and devoted poker player.

I understand why Coolidge (perhaps the best peacetime President ever) and Hoover (gretaest American humanitarian of the 20th Century) aren't there - not exactly party animals.

Would love to see David Petraeus in the next edition of that painting, right next to Ike.

George W. Bush is CERTAINLY worthy to be in that painting. Liberated millions. Kept us out of all of the EU-globalwarming-ICC-OneWorld nonsense that Obama is about to put us into. His economy was very strong until September, when an electronic run was made on the money markets - Bush administration began an investigation into that, Obama is dropping it. Bush was a much better president than he is given credit for in this generation. I'd vote for him again in a heartbeat, especially above Obama.
