Because we could all use a little Dubya in our lives.
1. He’s a real lyricist
Nobody can tangle words and look classy doin’ it quite like the old Commander-in-Chief.
“There’s an old saying in Tennessee….” Yeah, you know the rest.
2. That time he wrastled a poncho
I mean, how adorable!? On a bleak and rainy Inauguration Day for President Trump, Dubya’s smile made everything all sunshine and rainbows.
3. Every time he chilled with Michelle
This is bipartisanship right here folks. Former FLOTUS Michelle Obama and former POTUS George W. Bush are enjoying their post-White House years together at every turn. Go ahead and take that White House mint Michelle, it’s only ten years old or so.
4. He’s Got Moves

Pitch for a new television show: Dancing with the Stars and Stripes. First contestant? The 43rd President of course! Look at those moves he showed off in Zambia. Not to mention that time in the Rose Garden. Or that time he was waitin’ on John McCain. Hey, can’t say he doesn’t have experience!
5. He’s a happy little painter
Here’s a President full of joy, painting world leaders and wounded warriors. So, get out your two-inch brush, and don’t be afraid to paint along with him.
6. This POTUS Knows How to Give a Chest Bump

And so what if it knocked the wind out of him a little? I bet in his Yale days, this Bush could bump with the best of bros.
7. A Better Baller Than Barack?
You know you want to see a little Presidential one-on-one between Barack and George W. I mean, just look at the handles on this man! Nothing says America like a little friendly competition on the court.
8. Those Tricky Chinese Doors

Did he let these doors stop him? No. Did he let the press laugh at him? No. He persevered, overcame all odds, and found a way to escape that press conference after all! What an inspiration to all of us.
9. A courageous and immediate response to 9/11

In all seriousness, President George W. Bush is an honorable American. Even his biggest critics have to admit he faced a set of circumstances like no other President before him. On that fateful day of September 11, 2001, President Bush was in a classroom full of children.
Upon hearing the news, he didn’t panic. He didn’t explode in a rage of fury. He reacted swiftly, but calmly.
In the following days and weeks, he met with families of victims, and he met with first responders. He reminded the world that “Islam is peace,” and the cowards who attacked America did not stand for peace. During the World Series that fall, he delivered a first pitch that reminded Americans to play ball; that everything was going to be okay, and they could go back to living their lives.
In the face of terror, he stood strong. He lifted Americans up, when everything seemed to be falling down around them. History will be kind to George W. Bush.
