Obama vs. Bush In Africa

Yes there are so many jokes. The saddest one is that Obama’s trip may cost Americans up to $100,000,000.00. Wonder who did best with American money. Let’s compare.

Mr. Bush, who made fighting AIDS in Africa a top goal of his administration, will take a trip there — his third since leaving office — as part of a program to combat cervical cancer. He will leave late next week for Zambia, where he will help refurbish a clinic, and then head to Tanzania, where his wife, Laura Bush, is organizing a forum for African first ladies.

Mr. Bush will overlap briefly on July 2 with Mr. Obama in Tanzania, the last stop on the current president’s itinerary after Senegal and South Africa. There are no plans for the two to see each other, but Michelle Obama has agreed to attend the first ladies’ forum with Mrs. Bush in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city, to promote women’s education, health and economic empowerment.

As written in the Huffington Post on December 2, 2010 so for the left this must be true.

Bono believes that the U.S government’s efforts to reduce the AIDS rate in Africa, which were expanded during the George W. Bush administration, have greatly improved America’s standing around the world.

Speaking to Bret Baier on “Special Report’ (Weekdays, 6 PM ET on Fox News), on the occasion of World AIDS day, Bono had this to say:

“(These anti-AIDS initiatives) are the best advertisements for America there’s ever going to be. Even people who are snide and snarky about the United States of America have to admit that millions and millions of lives have been saved by American taxpayers … America, you’re saving five million lives. It’s an extraordinary thing that you have done.”

“And I can say this without fear of criticism, that without the leadership of President Bush, those numbers would not be there,” Bono added.
