The health clinic the Bushes visited in Zambia over the Fourth of July? It wasn't just a health clinic -- it was a women's health clinic:
President Bush was in Africa to promote cervical cancer detection and treatment programs for Zambian women, many of whom are living with HIV....Imagine if President Obama had done that? With Michelle? On the Fourth of July? In Africa? The right-wingers would still be howling.
The former president has raised more than $85 million for cervical cancer programs, through his George W. Bush Center and other partner organizations....
Oh, sure -- Bush is an ex-president, so it's different. But if he'd done this on a Fourth of July while he was in office, there still wouldn't have been a peep of protest. And if Obama does it on a Fourth of July after he leaves office, I bet there'll be grumblers saying, "See? He always had contempt for America."
