Former U.S. President spearheading women's health issues in Africa Comments

While former U.S. President George W. Bush faces some often harsh criticism as commander in chief from those who claim he led the nation into unpopular wars and additional criticism from opponents who claim he initiated failed economic policies, he has taken on a new role as an advocate for women's health in Africa. Both he and his wife Laura Bush have recently opened a women's health clinic in Kabwe, Zambia. Continue Reading

    What am absolute disgrace to begin an article regarding charitable work by GW Bush with a number of inaccurate and partisan comments regarding his presidency.

    I did a quick search on 'catholic.org' for Bill Clinton to see if Clinton's coverage was similarly tainted with partisanship. See below for a recent article.

    Strange, I don't see any discussion of Clinton's impeachment or other similar negative comments. What a surprise.

    Former U.S. President Bill Clinton, the U.N.'s special envoy to Haiti now says that a member of the global organization's peacekeeping force was probably responsible for bringing cholera to the Caribbean nation. In his defense, Clinton said that the soldier was probably unaware that he was infected.

    After a hospital tour, former U.S. President Bill Clinton agreed with a statement by U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice about holding accountable those who brought cholera to Haiti.

    LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - After a hospital tour, Clinton agreed with a statement by U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice about holding accountable those who brought cholera to Haiti.....

    Exactly - can't tell the story without the Bush bashing. It's like every story about Mother Teresa's life work always including that as a teenager in a convent in Bulgaria she never replaced the roll of toilet paper when it ran out. Not once. Ever.

    W and Laura are class acts. Every time a read a story about their various charitable activities it reads like a discovery. George Bush spotted doing good in Africa while failing to alert the media. That's how it should be. No podium, no teleprompter.

    President George W. Bush has done MORE for AFRICA than any other president in U.S. history. AND......he does it quietly without a lot of fanfare or a huge PR team surrounding him making sure he gets publicity. He and his lovely wife Lauran are truly a class act.

    I don't believe that I have ever heard one unkind word from this man towards the current office holder.

    Let us see if this holds true when the office changes hands again.

    I didn't agree with everything he did, but he seems like a very honerable person- aware of his own failings and comfortable in his own skin.

    Yes. Truly classy in a mundane sort of way.

    George W. and Laura...how we need their moral compass guiding our nation. I love that he doesn't seek the limelight, the press. He doesn't pander to others, but instead, he CARES about others...wounded warriors, soldiers on active duty, AIDS victims in Africa, and so many others we'll never know about. Miss you, Dubya. Miss you big time.

    But... But... But... HOW CAN THIS BE?!?!?
    Bush hates BLACKS.... and WOMEN!!
    He's a racist, misogynist, warmonger... remember?

    That's what the Democrats and their lapdog media told us for 8 years anyway.

    John Galt said what I wanted to say. Whoever wrote this article should hang their heads in shame...and you people call yourselves Catholic?

    I'm a proud Catholic and my church is OLPH in Santa Clarita , California.

    George Bush is a great man from a great family. Obama would never do anything like this. He is an arrogant, pompous ass that needs to be voted out of office.

    Pretty good for a guy that supposedly doesn't like black people, right Kanye?
