    700,000,000.00 in AIDS relief funding, prevention education, etc. This is a point even his harshest critics concede.

    But I'm half curious to see the excuses for slander the BDS lefties here will come up with to "counter":lol:

    GWB doesn't care bout black people.....:lol:

    People are going to say Bush didn't promote condom use in Africa, so he doesn't deserve any real credit.

    Not only that, he cut support for any group or organization that promoted the use of condoms or family planning. That left only ignorant right wingnut groups teaching "abstinence only", something that didn't even work for Bristol Palin.

    Bush's follies led directly to the laws being worked out in Uganda. Laws which I'm sure Righteous supports?

    Study: Abstinence program most effective
    at delaying sex among youths​

    [​IMG]


    February 02, 2010|By Ashley Hayes, CNN

    An abstinence-only education program is more effective than other initiatives at keeping sixth- and seventh-graders from having sex within a two-year period, according to a study described by some as a landmark.


    The study, published in the current issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, indicated that about one-third of the preteens and their young teen classmates who received an eight-hour abstinence lesson had sexual intercourse within two years of the class.


    By comparison, more than half of the students who were taught about safe sex and condom use reported having intercourse by the two-year mark, and more than 40 percent of students who received either an eight- or 12-hour lesson incorporating both abstinence education and safe sex reported having sex at two years.

    Finally you got something right.

    Bush did more for Africa than either "black" American presidents .. the so-called vanilla one in Bill Clinton, or the carmel one in Obama.

    Bush giving money to corrupt African countries was a bad thing. Other than just stating how great it was why not show some real stories how Africa is so much better off. I would be a buck Africa still needs another hand out.

    Any money that went to Africa made dictators and corrupt politicians rich beyond their dreams.

    A huge waste of my tax money, a huge misuse of my labor, I got to pay for a house the next thirty years and Bush give my hard work to a dictator in Africa and we are suppose to commend him on the sincerity and nobleness of the thought.

    Gee, I hope Obama gives even more money to Africa so we can see how kind and just Obama and the Liberal-Marxist are.
