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

    Press hatred for Bush cannot be quieted by anything he might undertake or accomplish. They are virulent and single-minded in this regard. Note that no individual took responsibility for this hit piece. They lack the courage of their foolish convictions. And with America's prospects today falling off a cliff, they nevertheless all will vote for Obama in November. You can't fix stupid.

    I would expect more from this news organization than to start the story with the general left wing slanted rhetoric. Why not just tell a positive story dealing with this issue? I thought Caholics were pro life as President Bush was, and believed in compassion as President and Laura Bush have always shown. Shame on the author of this article, You should know better!!!!

    The opening paragraph is both unneeded and not at all pertinent to the subject . Liberals even Catholic ones are simply unable to give this President any praise, without some bashing up front. I am a Catholic and this appearing in a Catholic news outlet is saddening.

    It amazes me that the current president has not lifted one finger to help even his estranged family but a white, supposedly racist, war mongering ex president seems to find the time to help thousands in Africa.

    Your bias shines through in the first sentence!

    While Bush is a Progressive and was wrongheaded on so many domestic issues- illegal immigration, JUSTICE ROBERTS!- and may have mishandled the Iraq war, he is a good and decent man who's heart is in the right place. Nor is he the dummy that the left likes to make out.
    When it comes to AIDS in Africa, he did more and is still doing more, than the two doofus' that preceded and followed him into the White House.
    A white man doing more for Africa than a black man with Kenyan roots...I am surprised the author didn't call him 'racist'!

    Why do you feel the need to use the first paragraph of your story to bash Bush? People know what they think of him, one way or the other. Some of us remember unemployment at 6%, and some of us recall going into the "unpopular" war with the backing of 90% of the population.

    Will your next article on Obama begin: "Even though some people view him as the man who squandered a trillion dollars on a "Stimulus Bill" that didn't work, misled the nation about how transparent his administration would be, and forced through a healthcare bill that "needed to be passed so we could find out what's in it," President Obama now has a new role as ... x..."

    Let's see how fair you are. You cannot serve both Christ and Politicians, my friend.

    Instead of leading with the fact that Bush has given more U.S. money to fight AIDS in Africa than any other President in U.S. history, you choose to make "criticisms" in your opening statement. I'd always thought that I'd be a "craddle to grave" catholic, but over the past few years I now only identify myself as a Christian, because of the increased left wing stances the church now associates itself.

    Zambia must be one of the few countries that doesnt have warrants issued for the arrest of boy george bush as the mass murdering war criminal that he is. he's been convicted in abstentia of war crimes in one country and is under indictment for war crimes in 112 other countries. he must have been drunk or coked up to be hugging on little black folks b/c his family has very little respect for the 3rd world or africans, other than for a foto op. 118 countries have war crimes arrest warrants for cheney.
