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

    As an African, I appreciate the help that the PEPFAR fund brought to many people on the continent especially those in sub-saharan Africa. On the issue of Mr. Bush, it must be said that he saved many lives. We need to understand that politics is a dirty game and especially where you have very powerful media houses who are extremely liberal. Here in Kenya we will always be greatful for the funds that were poured out in supporting HIV/AIDS programmes by the former president.

    Bob Atteberry: Well said. "Facts ma'm, just the facts". Remember that phrase. If not, you certainly do from science. Everything, and I mean Everything, must be backed by Evidence. Or, it is a theory.? Everybody has one. Or is there a bit of Secularism I hear? You know: An attitude that's earthy, temporal, or profane.
    That is, to leave out what is also true and good. EX: Like the untrusted Media. To me, President Bush was not to blame for anything. He responded to his job with the hand he was dealt. That's MORE THAN > I can say for This president. He has caused us more woes than the tea that was dumped in the Boston Harbor at the beginning of this country! As far as our mess is concerned, it began a long time ago. President Bush was a good and Godly president. Lt. Colonel Roberto Herrera Ret.: Also well said."Sacred Heart Of Jesus, Pray For Us".

    Bob A, it's the acceptance of that storyline with no mention of wall street and the GOP's role in deregulation that ensure we will repeat this nonsense again. At some point we will realize that the captains of finance profited greatly, our politicians sat back and helped them and did nothing and they left the US taxpayers to hold the bag for all of it. But so long as we keep saying it's all the dems fault...all the GOP's fault, the crooks get away with it, and we will stupidly ensure it happens again.

    Wait a minute... Republicans get all warm and fuzzy over opening clinics in other countries to promote cervical cancer screenings, HIV testing, etc... and yet here at home they are working to close down free clinics (like Planned Parenthood) that do the very same thing??? I mean, it's great for Africa as they could use the help, but we sure as heck need the help here, too. It doesn't make much sense. PR stunt or just hypocrisy?

    As a devout Catholic,who has lived through 70 years hearing the bigoted lies against Catholicism, I am truly sickened by the lies Catholic Online felt it had to repeat about George Bush. In trying to find forgiveness for their mindless hatred; I must remind myself they are a part of the masses of brainwashed students,deprived of instruction in critical thinking by their biased,prejudiced professors. I now realize Catholic Online is not a source of honest news.

    Character is what comes through when you think nobody is watching.

    The stark contrast between our current President and President Bush reveals itself everyday.

    President Bush and first lady Laura Bush do have character to all those who do not like him or misinformed from the stupid media. Without Drudge Report and chatholic.com no one knows President Bush and Laura did to the strange, physical ilness, 100% different skin color, not related at all. The question why? People don't see near, far and beyond. I suggest all of you just spend a little time to read newspapers and watch TV, and listen to the radio or internet that they mention his work even the PBS and NPR which take money from taxpayers money for the liberals' propaganda every day. I true believe that President Bush and first lady Laura won't even need these papers, TV's, radio, internet's people to praise them for the jobs the Bushs have done for so long and so much. And with their characters, they both don't mind to take all criticism of all people
    Thank you both for every thing you have loved and done to the things and the people you love in a kind way and I wish you and your family find happiness, joyfulness, hope and all good things with you always

    apparently the negativity expressed in this article generated so many comments with the link from Drudge that the story link from Drudge has been routed away from this website & over to the Voice of America's website - which provides no avenue for discussion. So in spite of the editorial slant, Kudos to Catholic Online for providing the capability for feedback; the real culprit with the editorial content is probably the article's author, Brian Padden, whose name is not listed here but does show up on the VOA story. I wonder which of the 2 Americas he's presuming to be the voice of?

    God Bless you George and Laura I voted for you and supported your time in the White House. It was a better time than we have now thats for sure. Hope we get back on track but not with the Obama White House I hope. Keep up the good work and yes we have people here who need our help as well.
