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

    The first paragraph illustrates how biased our media is. It is a totally unnecessary slam against a president who has done good towards Africa and without the narcisstic fanfare of Obama.

    and you SNICKER about a PRIVATE Citizen DOING GOOD... without the VIEW of camers and massive press coverage.

    Rome is Buring... in the USA....
    I agree with Galt - You may want to look up the CRA laws, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd's mismanagement and obfuscation of problems at Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac.
    and ....
    The US Attorney General office sits on its hands.
    The Commodity Futures Trading Commission sits on its hands.
    The Securities & Exchange Commission sits on its hands.
    The financial press ignores the crime, or minimizes it, or explains it away.
    They all pay lipservice to enforcement of regulations and securities fraud.
    The outcome is a mindnumbing episode of financial fraud, theft, and collusion that the nation has never witnessed in its entire history...

    Left wingers hated Bush because he postured as a conservative. Conservatives disliked Bush because he postured as a conservative. Other than on the national security front, he was one of America's least effective presidents. Like his father, he lacked the fundamentals to be a real visionary leader, and both of the Bushes just muddled through. No amount of do-gooding in africa is ever going to erase the stigma of their presidential legacies. The Bushes are good people. They just were not qualified to run America.

    Africans know what Kanye West of the tiny mind refuses to see: George W. Bush isn't about race, he's about Christianity.

    As for Catholic.org, Obama is attempting to stamp out the Church of Rome in America, and y'all are still spreading Democrat lies about a man who let the church worship and serve freely. Well, good luck with Obama, suckers.

    George and Laura Bush help the poor, while the Communist Dictator parties. As good an example of good vs evil as you will ever see.

    The opening reference to what others supposedly think is cheap and unnecessary for the article. It looks like a self-serving indulgence by the writers to take a figurative "BM" on the former president. Otherwise, I think it's a heart-warming story, and I do hope the Bush's efforts along with others can greatly improve the quality of life in Africa.

    They are good people. However, what about the people in our country that need that help?? Lets help ourselves before we help others.

    Bleurgh! So the Catholic Church is now promoting the Bush clan. So, the Catholic church welcomes members of the Skull and Bone society into its fold (yes, Bush and his father are both member of this cult). The satanists are now publicly in bed with the satanists.

    George and Laura have always been a caring couple. They were first to arrive at Fort Hood to visit some of the soldiers shot by the terrorist. They only left because the WH asked them to leave so BHO could have an undistracted press conference. These are kind people.

    Know what BHO was doing on the fourth - calling donors asking for more money.

    Was always a fan of G.W. even though it was hard to find anything nice said about him in the msm. These types of stories prove what type of man he really is. His comment about how BHO deserves his silence was a complete class act compared to treatment he received from other x-presidents. God bless you and your family G.W.
