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

    That evil mastermind!! How dare he go abroad and make our President look bad during an election cycle. Is there no end to this man's sinking depths? All government moneys going to this faker should be stopped. First 9/11 and now he steals credit from a charity...wait, sec.....oh sorry. I forgot that Obama was so bad that I switched sides...
    Keep up the good works President Bush and Laura! Sorry bout all the stuff I said in the past.

    Maybe they should visit the national graveyard created by the banking elite's lust for power. But put away the Bonesman compass, those dead usually are relegated to unmarked killing fields. Hollow gesture, Great War profiteer, err Prescott. Vietnam, I mean 41. Hell on earth, "w".

    And former president Clinton celebrated the Fourth of July in some brothel.

    He will spend his favorite holiday, April 15, doing good works for the poor, because he feels their pain.

    Bush is doing more good in Africa than a certain president who was born in Africa.

    Why? Why? Why? .do you have to slam a man when he is doing an obviously good thing for the people of Africa and Kenya. This man has been out of office for over 3 years and still you can't post a article that shows what a good man and women he a the former first lady are.without first slamming him and her.
    What a disgusting way to write and post an article.
    However it is not unexpected of you.
    By the way is it George Bush that is trying to make the Catholic Church change one of their basic tenants? I think not. But make sure you support BHO and slam George Bush at every opportunity.
    Way to go!! you should be so proud of yourselves

    Failed economic policies? We had surging growth for years, and unemployment below 5%. It was the MSM which lied about the economic growth for most of the 8 years

    His decisions to decimate Iraq and Afghanistan resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. We spent our troops and resources destroying a nation that never even did us harm. He is a war criminal.

    This could have been a good story if it were not for the nasty political commentary in the introduction. President Bush has always been a decent human being who has lived life in accordance with Christian principles. Try to take from him what you will, but he will be remembered by history as a good man who had to lead at a very difficult time in world history.

    Is it necessary to open an otherwise inspiring article with slanted and biased sentences : "claim he led the nation into unpopular wars and additional criticism from opponents who claim he initiated failed economic policies". That added absolutely nothing to the article and only leaves a bad taste with many readers.

    This will motivate me to ignore future articles from Catholic Online.

    Good Lord! Can't you just write about all the good George and Laura Bush are doing as part of their Christian faith without all the caveats about his administration? Would you similarly make caveats about Jimmy Carter's presidency while lauding his efforts with Habitat for Humanity? Of course you wouldn't.

    George Bush never led America into war. Al Qaeda dragged us into it. I'm glad he was our president when 9-11 happened because that silly goose Al Gore would have pooped his pants, surrendered, and our women would be wearing the burqa just to appease Islam. George never threw Israel under the bus, either, just to appease our attackers. No one is perfect but George was the right man at the right time in the White House in 2001. I've served under him and I've met him three times and he, though a sinner like any of us, is a good, decent, and upright man who fears the Lord.

    Why don't we stop carping and start praying for George and Laura's success in Zambia? Better yet, why not send a nice donation to his foundation to help? George and Laura are focusing on REAL women's health issues which, may I remind readers, does not include abortion, contraception, or sterilization.

    George and Laura Bush are class acts from the get-go. I personally think they would make excellent Catholics and I pray for their conversions.
