Opinion Recognizes Former President George W. Bush’s Work To Improve Health In Africa

Washington Post: Distinguished pol of the week
Jennifer Rubin, opinion writer

“Former president George W. Bush spoke at the Africa leaders summit this week. … Unlike President Obama, he did not rely on platitudes or speak as if Africa were one big, undifferentiated country. He spoke about specific programs in three countries in which he is involved and announced he was extending his work to two more countries… It was a reminder how dedicated he was and is to women’s rights and human rights more generally. … For his efforts in saving millions of people from AIDS and other diseases, his ongoing spotlight on human rights and his farsightedness on the Middle East, we can say well done, President Bush” (8/10).
