What a bunch of BS.
I suggest you read Paul O'Neill's account of the Bush administration. It will force to open your eyes about Bush.
O'neill was Bush's first Treasury Secretary. He traveled to Africa and became enthusiastic about helping the Africans help themselves.
O'Neill crunched the numbers and found that for a pittance the US could install wells & pumps and provide clean water to every African village -- dramatically raising the living standard across the continent.
Bush sneered at the idea.
The lack of clean drinking water continues to be one of Africa's biggest problems. Thanks to Bush.
Check it out. Oh I forgot -- you don't read.
