Oh my!!! How cute and quaint. It was such an earnest adventure to see that our former President Select is basking well into his golden years as an a painting artist.....he's in good company, I heard hitler started out that way too.

Anyhow, when we have former President Bill Clinton and his world foundation and President carter building homes for poor people and overseeing international elections, it's truly heartwarming to see that Bush can contribute so much good to the world in the form of completed paint-by-number works of art.

The GOTP should be so proud of their favorite son. PErhaps he can have a showing in one of those countries that have arreset warrants out on him for war crimes. Maybe a painting could alleviate some of the heat!!!

In addition to his Foundation work, President Clinton has joined with former President George H.W. Bush three times – after the 2004 tsunami in South Asia, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Hurricane Ike in 2008, and with President George W. Bush in Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. Today the Clinton Foundation supports economic growth, job creation, and sustainability in Haiti.

BTW, Gabby Hamster, what is your 'black' president doing for Africa besides clogging the tourist sites?
He might want to take a look at this:

George W. Bush’s Legacy on Africa Wins Praise, Even From Foes

The George W. Bush Presidential Library dedication brought together five living presidents who have been at odds about much of the 43rd president’s foreign policy legacy, particularly the Iraq war. But they all agreed on, and offered effusive praise for, Bush’s work on Africa.

From the historic peace agreement between Sudan and South Sudan in 2005, to Bush’s work on HIV/AIDS and malaria, all the presidents, regardless of party, thanked No. 43 for his involvement in African policies and issues.

Jimmy Carter — who now runs the Carter Center, a non-profit organization whose mission is to fight for human rights, conflict resolution and global health in the world’s most impoverished countries — laid out Bush’s accomplishments, including increasing aid to the continent by more than 640% by the time he left office.

“Mr. President, let me say that I’m filled with admiration for you and deep gratitude for you about the great contributions you’ve made to the most needy people on Earth,” said Carter.

At more than $5 billion a year in humanitarian aid to Africa, President Bush has given more assistance to the continent than any other president. His administration’s aid was largely targeted to fight the major global health issues facing the continent, HIV/AIDS and malaria.

U2 front-man and activist Bono, who criticized Bush on the Iraq War, nonetheless expressed his admiration for the Republican president on an appearance on the Daily Show last year, telling Stewart that Bush did an “amazing” job in the fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa.

“I know that’s hard for you to accept,” Bono said to a surprised crowd and host,“but George kind of knocked it out of the park. I can tell you, and I’m actually here to tell you that America now has 5 million people being kept alive by these drugs. That’s something that everyone should know.”

Since leaving office the former president and his wife, Laura, have continued to stay active in global health issues in Africa, now taking on cancer. The George W. Bush Institute has launched the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative to try and bring together both public and private investment to fight cervical and breast cancer in Africa and Latin America. The couple launched the program on a visit to Zambia and Bostwana in July of last year.

Ummmm, Bushie's AIDS efforts in Africa are not without it's problems.....

The launch of the George W. Bush Presidential Library signals the beginning of the Bush restoration campaign. Allies of the 43rd President have already stated that they intend to return his name to good standing in the eyes of the American people, and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) will likely be at the center of these efforts.

While PEPFAR has already saved an estimated 1.1 million lives through the provision of HIV/AIDS medications to people in Africa, Bush’s record on the disease is not without blemishes. PEPFAR often overshadows one of the more disastrous areas of his policy while president; the restoration of the Global Gag Rule. This reinstated Reagan-era policy eliminated funding for nongovernmental organizations that provide information about abortion and in doing so cut life-saving services for countless women.

The assistance that the Gag Rule took from these organizations had a much larger reach than their pocketbooks. By making them ineligible for U.S. assistance, it prevented them from distributing U.S.-funded contraceptives and using the unique expertise these groups have in educating the public about safer sexual practices.

and as you all continue to complain about Obama's vacations, let's consider the shopping sprees that the Bushies got to enjoy .......

We’ve played this game before, but anytime the nation’s first black president spends more than a dollar, the right wing freaks out about Barack Obama “wasting taxpayer dollars.” Back in 2011, the right claimed that First Lady Obama’s Africa trip would cost taxpayers millions, but even if you use numbers that the White House disagrees with ($424,000), they weren’t even close.

This time the right has whipped up the fake outrage over a leaked document showing that President Obama’s upcoming Africa trip could cost $60-$100 million. What these same people don’t tell is that George and Laura Bush loved to go to Africa on the taxpayers’ dime…a lot.

During Bush’s second term alone, Laura Bush made five “goodwill” trips to Africa. President Bush made the trip twice during his presidency. Here is former First Lady Bush at an event the night before their trip in 2008,“Tomorrow, President Bush and I leave for what will be my fifth trip to Africa since 2001, and his second trip to Africa since 2001. I’ve seen the determination of the people across Africa — and the compassion of the people of the United States of America.”

Wow, that’s a lot of trips to Africa. In 2007, Laura Bush also took her daughters with her, and they went on a safari. You know, the same kind of outing that President Obama just canceled.

Not much was going right for George W. Bush. Even before the economy crashed, his legacy was 9/11, the unpopular Iraq invasion, and Hurricane Katrina. Back in 2003, Bush laid the groundwork for making aid to Africa his legacy. One of the areas where Bush drew praise was that he spent billions of taxpayer dollars on aid to Africa. It’s funny how conservatives don’t utter a peep about George W. Bush dishing out more than ten times the amount of taxpayer money on aid than Obama will spend on his trip.

==========
If you ask me, George Bush's Africa efforts are a direct correlation to the guilt that he feels over Katrina and the overall meme that came out of his Katrina efforts, namely that he doesn't care about black people. He had to do SOMETHING to restore himself.....

Perhaps if you stop using racist epithets so frequently you wouldn't have those issues.

Just give us one other name that I'm using, Douchie. Note the present tense. Not names that are no longer accessible. You're accusing me of using more than one name at the present time, just as Gabby's Hamster and your daughter do.
Come on, you can do it.

I don't really care about your self imposed limitations. Fact of the matter is that if you wouldn't pen such utterly offensive posts, you never would have had to change your name at all.

So sorry you're too stupid to understand that, despite that 3.140% you earned.

You hardly ever see Bush in the media, he stayed hidden. The people were so sick of him and Chainey after 8 yrs. and he knew it. Well whoop-d-doo he paints so do I. After Bush why do you think the Repubs had to resort to their outrageous, ruthless measures trying to get back in office. Bush has not been forgotten. Their party has split and now they have become the party of the crazy and the crazier.He is what they call a dry-drunk.

Bush is doing what EVERY ex-president used to and should do...he stays out of the limelight and doesn't speak on the policies of the current president. Your scum bags Carter and Clinton never learned those sort of manners and both have been idiots for it. Ask your boy Barry...you'd better believe he wishes Jimmy and Willie would shut up...they've both trashed him on Obamacare in recent weeks.
You remain one of the dimmest bulbs here, Fake OU mammy.

You've said in the past that you were black. That's not going away.
