Is President Bush a disgrace to humanity? Has he used his power to promote the broader, common interests of humanity -- and does he represent the paragon of human excellence implicitly commensurate with his power and direct influence over broad human events?

Yes, he has. While in office the Bush administration has nearly tripled humanitarian and development assistance to African countries.

President Bush's legacy is sure to be defined by his wielding of U.S. military power in Afghanistan and Iraq, but there is another, much softer and less-noticed effort by his administration in foreign affairs: a dramatic increase in U.S. aid to Africa.
The president has tripled direct humanitarian and development aid to the world's most impoverished continent since taking office and recently vowed to double that increased amount by 2010 -- to nearly $9 billion.





The moves have surprised -- and pleased -- longtime supporters of assistance for Africa, who note that because Bush has received little support from African American voters, he has little obvious political incentive for his interest.
"I think the Bush administration deserves pretty high marks in terms of increasing aid to Africa," said Steve Radelet, a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development.
Bush has increased direct development and humanitarian aid to Africa to more than $4 billion a year from $1.4 billion in 2001, according to the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. And four African nations -- Sudan, Ethiopia, Egypt and Uganda -- rank among the world's top 10 recipients in aid from the United States.

Mr. Bush is a globalist it's as simple as that. His goal is to bring the U.S. into the global fold. Before that can happen we must be brought into the NAU. The present financial crisis is to bankrupt the American People and then offer the NAU as a solution.

Its not so much as to bankrupt us, for America has vast amounts of capital and it will take years to relinquish all of it, but to nationalize the financial systems so they can then do as you say in bring us into the fold.

President Bush has disgraced himself and the executive branch of the US government completely. In some societies leaders that had failed so completely would have thrown themselves on thier swords. The expectation of excellence one should expect from the leader of the so called "free world" was sorely misplaced when it found George Bush's shoulders.
