George W. Bush and Laura Bush wrapped up a week-long trip to Africa Friday, where they visited Zambia and Botswana promoting an initiative to fight cervical cancer and breast cancer in the countries.
As part of the charity initiative the Bushes helped open medical centers providing cancer screenings, visited sick children at an orphanage, and met with Peace Corps members, according to the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

I saw it the other day on my online news media the Daily Mail. I wanted to post some pictures that were particularly touching on Comet's Happy Birthday thread but did not want to spoil it in case others wanted to add their greetings.

That was sort of chicken Sh*t cnredd. Maybe if the republican congress would try to help it would be different. I'm glad to see this but then Carter has been doing this stuff since he left office and I haven't seen any praise from you.

Good ol' Republicans.
Only wanting to talk about black employment if there's a chance to poke at Obama in the process...

Looking back at the HISTORY of the subject, it's funny to note how often they have been quiet on the subject.


Any comment as to most of that jump being under Bush's presidency?
Nah. Not convenient to acknowledge, is it...
