The Bushes are going to Africa!


This morning, Bush talked about his and Laura’s forthcoming trip to Africa.

OH GOD, HE’S GOING TO RE-START THE SLAVE TRADE: “Africa in the 21st century is a continent of potential. That’s how we view it.”

“Paternalism has got to be a thing of the past,” he said.

“PATERNALISM HAS GOT TO BE A THING OF THE PAST,” HE SAID: “I’m going to witness the generosity of the American people firsthand. It will give me a chance to remind our fellow citizens about what a compassionate people we are.”

AND WHAT ARE THE ORIENTED? “Let me say, I’m a results-oriented President, and so when I meet with you, I ask you, what are the results?”

OH GOD, HE’S GOING TO RE-START THE SLAVE TRADE: “We believe that every human life is precious.”


OH GOD, HE’S GOING TO RE-START THE SLAVE TRADE: “The new era is rooted in a powerful truth: Africa’s most valuable resource is not its oil, it’s not its diamonds, it is the talent and creativity of its people.”

WHAT WE BELIEVE: “We believe that countries can adopt the habits necessary to provide help for their people. That’s what we believe.”

“Joint venturing with good, capable people is what the future is all about.” Joint venturing is what you’re calling slavery, isn’t it?

NOT THAT YOU ACTUALLY KNOW HIS NAME, OF COURSE: “I’m looking forward to seeing the President of Tanzania, he’s a good guy.”

IN OTHER NOT AT ALL EMPTY WORDS: “In other words, these just weren’t empty words”.

OUR FUTURE SLAVES ARE DYING, DAMMIT!: “The greatest threat to Africa is disease.”

PLEASE DON’T TELL US ANY MORE ABOUT YOU DID WITH THE BED NETS, GEORGE: “One of the interesting gifts Laura and I got a couple of years ago for Christmas was bed nets in our name. It made us feel great.”

“PATERNALISM HAS GOT TO BE A THING OF THE PAST,” HE SAID: “Overall, more than two-thirds of the nations of sub-Saharan Africa are free. And for the rest, the direction of history is clear, so long as the United States does not lose its nerve, and retreat into isolationism and protectionism.”
