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

    Unfortunately thanks to Bush appointing Roberts we'll all have healthcare like Zambia. Obama/Romneycare, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like "America Deceived II".

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama, support Ron Paul.

    Last link of "America Deceived II" before it is completely banned:

    And W isn't doing this for a publicity stunt. He and Laura have huge compassionate hearts, despite what the mainstream media spins. Thank you, G.W. and Laura Bush!

    Notice how GWB never said that the conditions in Zambia were Clinton's fault.

    "...he led the nation into unpopular wars.."

    beware the president that leads a nation into "popular" wars.

    Some men will talk about it and defend their stand, a great man "does" and makes no excuse.

    Bush's sanctions on Iraq killed so many children that the UN ranked it as worst place in the world for child mortality. Number one killer: Diarrhea. The reason the children died was because the gulf war damaged drinking water pipes contaminating the water supplies of millions. He refused to allow shipment of pipes to fix the infrastructure saying it would be used to make missils. He refused to allow shipments of medicines for the children. Even IV kits were prohibited because the US stated it would be used for chemical warfare. All in all, UN estimates, between 500000 and 1.2 million children died as a result of the sanctions.
    There is nothing this man can do to redeem himself in my eyes. Let God be the judge of him.

    At the top, there is no difference between the so-called left/right, democrat/republican. I am not an obummer fan at all and I am not a democrat, but this is nothing more than just another photo-op. History will judge him and he knows it. His image is already tarnished, and as more truth comes to light it will only get uglier.

    President Bush and Mrs. Bush are a class act.
    Too bad all the vitriolic libs can't see it.

    Population reductions and the globalist take over of Africa is what this is about and don't be fooled! Eugenics program of forced abortions, vaccines, war, etc. The Bushes are nothing but EVIL!

    I endorse the previous comments regarding your stupid and unnecessary introduction to the Bush article. "Lets plant the seed of condemnation before we praise his humantity", but privately we will probably endorse a President who votes for abortion with out restriction. Boy do we know how to practice our faith as Catholics!
