Alongside Obama, George W. Bush Steals the WH Show - ABC News

"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 said he was pleased that the White House portrait collection now starts and ends with a “George W.” Noting that George Washington’s portrait was famously saved by first lady Dolley Madison when the British burned the White House in 1814, Bush pointed to his own portrait and told Michelle Obama that “if anything happens, there’s your man.”

With a smile, the first lady assured him in her own remarks, “I promise, I’m going straight for” it in case of emergency.
