It’s Barack Obama’s house now, but his predecessor and political foil, George W. Bush, stole the show at the White House on Thursday with his wisecracks and grin.

“Thank you so much for inviting our rowdy friends to my hanging,” the former president said, referring to members of his family and former staff, invited back to the executive mansion for the unveiling of his and Laura Bush’s official portraits. “Behave yourselves,” he jokingly admonished his crowd.

Bush told the current president he was pleased to know “that when you are wandering these halls as you wrestle with tough decisions, you will now be able to gaze at this portrait and ask, ‘What would George do?’”

    Leave it to George Bush to always bring a smile with his clever humor. I miss him and wish he was still the President. WTG to Mr. Bush and his lovely wife. They are truly one of a kind.
