Media Matters represent!

Did they let the Daily Kos crowd out of their moms’ basements for the Nelson Mandela memorial service in South Africa today?

And yet, George and Laura Bush remained classy and respectful as always with a standing ovation for President Obama’s eulogy.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was also reportedly booed during the memorial. Nah, just kidding.

Bush’s work in Africa speaks louder than any chorus of boos.

      This is why Bush when visiting various African nations, gets the kind of warm reception you’d expect for a loved member of the family… and Obama’s are purely functionary political events, cold even..

      Obama slashed African AIDS funding..

      and Africa knows it..

      The dolts booing him were leftist drones, not at all representative of Africans at large.. I remember seeing here last year, Bush was treated like a hero during his African visit.. People, average people, were not the only ones at the memorial.. many were purely political..

      • URGR82

        Exactly. ..all leftist political elitists ..socialist have to boo people down them names..its how they recruit other haters

  • Zathras11 @B5

    You can believe this fawning media hype, or you can learn about the TRUE man that he was!

    “According to the Human Rights Commission it is estimated that during the Apartheid period some 21,000 people were killed, however both the UN Crimes against Humanity commission and South Africa’s own Truth and Reconciliation Commission are in agreement that in those 43 years the South African Security forces killed a total of 518 people.

    The rest, (some 92%, or 20,482) were accounted for by Africans killing Africans, many by means of the notorious and gruesome practice of necklacing whereby a car tyre full of petrol is placed around a victim’s neck and set alight. This particularly cruel form of execution was frequently carried out at the behest of the ANC with the enthusiastic support of Mandela’s demonic wife Winnie.”

    Search Google for “Mandela proven communist”, “Mandela terrorist” and “Mandela necklacing”, then go to you tube and search “Mandela: Speaking to reporters after singing to kill whites.” and watch that video for yourself. He is an old man, so there was NO change of heart. Once a Communist and Terrorist, always a Communist and Terrorist!

      This picture shows what no crowd of jeering socialists could ever take away..

      He’s a good man who saved lives when he didn’t have too.. It would be nice, if for once, the left held back it’s snarls and smears, and just acknowledged the good works done in our name..

    Since I’ve read all the bad things about Mandela, I can’t understand why he’s being placed on a pedastal. The Bush’s have always shown class; there’s no comparison between what we have now and what we had then. What I don’t understand is why Jeb and Barbara Bush had to make snide remarks about Palin but say only nice things about Hillary. Hillary can do no wrong with that family and Palin can do no right.

        You guys are all so far off base. The bottom line is they booed Pres Bush. That’s it. No leaders from any country have done more than the US. Regardless of the administrations. They should be cheering regardless of the president in power. It is almost like t owe them something. Take away what the US does and the AIDS issues will be 80% of the populations.
        You all need to sit back, examin what you say, how you say it and why you say it. I guess you all seem to reflect our issues in Washington. Instead of all of you being extreme right or Extreme left, try to come to the middle so we can fix this country.
        Political ideology, I smell one in this thread.

        • Juan Pablo

          Naive assumption that “the middle” will fix the country.

          There’s nothing wrong with outrage at backwards people who have run their country into the ground but have the audacity to boo someone who’s done more for that country than most africans

        • Infinite_Indeterminism

          Actually, in many ways it’s more about being right or wrong.

          Letting people run their own lives, on their own responsibility, is the right thing to do.

          The left object – strenously.

          Letting business have a reasoned, limited set of regulations to govern their behavior, with the general principle being that they sink or swim of their own accord, would be the right thing to do.

          I actually don’t think anybody any longer knows just how many thousand pages of regulations the various Obama-led departments are making… (and a bunch of RINOs through the ages have always prided themselves of being business-friendly, when they should have been market-friendly).

          Respecting the Constitution by keeping Federal hands off things they have no business interfering with, is the right thing.

          Current …”thinking” in the administration and Senate, is that unless they decide everything, it will all go to hell in a handbasket…

          So, no, it’s not really about extreme left or right (to the extent that line even makes any form of sense), it is about sensible application of the subsidiarity inherent in the Ninth and Tenth Amendment, as opposed to the overwhelming urge of lefties and Rinos to govern all and sundry from the offices of DC, even if those in DC have no idea what they’re talking about. (Guam tipping over, anybody ?)

        Here’s a right wing idiot who has FACTUALLY information. Christians form 40% of Africa’s population, with Muslims forming 45%. . .

        • PolkaDot

          According to the 2001 national census, Christians accounted for 79.7% of the population. This includes Zion Christian (11.1%), Pentecostal (Charismatic) (8.2%), Roman Catholic (7.1%), Methodist (6.8%), Dutch Reformed (6.7%), Anglican (3.8%); members of other Christian churches accounted for another 36% of the population. Muslims accounted for 1.5% of the population, Hindus about 1.3%, and Jews 0.2%. 15.1% had no religious affiliation, 2.3% were classified as other and 1.4% were unspecified.[21][22][23]

          African Indigenous Churches made up the largest of the Christian groups. Some believe that many people claiming no affiliation with any organised religion adhered to traditional indigenous religions. Many people have syncretic religious practices combining Christian and indigenous influences.[24]

          Muslims are largely found among the Coloured and Indian ethnic groups. They have been joined by black or white South African converts as well as immigrants from other parts of Africa.[25] South African Muslims claim that their faith is the fastest-growing religion of conversion in the country, with the number of black Muslims growing sixfold, from 12 000 in 1991 to 74 700 in 2004[25][26]

          The Hindu population has its roots in the British colonial period, but later waves of immigration from India have also contributed to it. Most Hindus are ethnically South Asian but there are many who come from mixed racial stock. Some are converts due to the efforts of Hindu missionaries such as ISKCON.

          Other minority religions in South Africa are Sikhism, Jainism and Bahá’í Faith.[22]

          Where do you people get all your facts about South Africa’s religion. I was under the impression Mandela was a Communist, or am I wrong on that, too??

          • genann59

            You are correct. He was a communist and a terrorist and genocidal murderer. And Obama was a supporter of him back at Occidental College according to an article I read the other day made up from the few public records of his time there. And he was attending on scholarship via affirmative action using the name Barry Obama, just to put to rest some of the rumors of foreign exchange status. They even had photos of him attending an anti apartheid rally in his freshman year there. He apparently transferred to Columbia, again using affirmative action since he felt there were not enough blacks in attendance at Occidental and he felt he needed more that he could identify with. Occidental at that time was striving to attain more diversity but uphold educational standards, and according to the article, Obama only got in on his skin color and the school he had attended in Hawaii, although not with good grades. He also belonged to Marxist groups while there, as Ayers correctly presented in the books he now admits he ghost wrote for Obama.

          • A Lee

            Oh anyone in college at the time thought Mandela was super cool! I wouldn’t think about that too deeply. Obama has a lot of problems just simply being a weak president. Who cares about his friends in college at this point. I am even Tea Party and I really don’t care at this point. I care more about his policies now not the weed he smoked with his Commie friends. Even I had some questionable friends back in the day and thought multi-culturalism was super awesome! Then I moved overseas for a while and grew up!

    Jimmy Carter , Bill Clinton were not booed – you do get that right ? So there was no need to bring up their work as they were not publically disrespected.

  • PatriotRG

    Thats right i’m brain washed in to thinking a man who does good should be respected. Its an insiduous right wing brain thought that infects all people of the right.

    • TundraThunder

      It’s sad to think that people like Stevo Hein might actually believe what they type.

        He certainly adds commedy value to the conversation.

    For the same reason everything in your world is a rightist fantasy. I didn’t mention any plots or ACORN or the commie obongo, you did. C’mon, you leftists are hive minded so yea, report for re-programming lest you fall afoul of the left and they try to destroy you.
    And please don’t gloss over that you were wrong.

    It shows such ignorance in the people for what Pres and Laura Bush have actually done for the people of Africa! Actions do not speak louder than words in this case!

    They should have booed obama, if they only knew.

    Hey Steve Hein, you should realize that when you are on your period it is best to not speak your opinions…especially your really dumbshit ones like the one you puked out. Come back when you are not on the rag, Asshole.

  • BrocinChina

    Didn’t Bush orchestrate more money for the AIDES relief fund in Africa than any other person in history? Man oh man, populist opinion is really stupid.

  • mk

    All I know is George W. and Laura didn’t deserve such uncouth behavior from I would expect muslims!!!!!!

  • jtflash49

    George W. Bush has done more work for the well being of Africans than anyone else on earth. He is revered in many parts of Africa but I guess in Communist South Africa he is a threat. To make sense of what is going on in the world these days I just expect the opposite of reason and goodness from the world and that way I don’t get surprised or disappointed. Case in point: Obama was elected to the Presidency TWICE. Also more people vote on American Idol than in elections. We are lazy and stupid. We are doomed.

  • Spray Tanning

    @ Steve What did Clinton to for Africa? Oh that’s right, He didn’t do anything except ALLOW 1 Million people in Rwanda to be killed. He didn’t do anything because he would have lost in 1996.

    President’s Aid’s initiative in Africa SAVED hundreds and thousands of lives. Sorry if FACTS get in teh way of your Brain Washed thinking.

  • dareisay

    Perhaps because he is white! See, we can lay that charge too!

  • g-main

    Stevo-jackass, you start off with an insult “Yet another rightwing idiot”, then you get butt-hurt when your insults come back to you. Yes, many tribes (and I’m black, so don’t go “there”) that haven’t been educated about the spread of AIDS have taken to raping boys and virgin girls as a cure. Dubya is STILL doing more for AIDS in Africa than any of your demon-cratic gods. Save your righteous indignation and Bush-derangement syndrome for The Daily Kos where you’ll be more appreciated.

  • timcooper62

    Why did George Bush even attend the funeral of a communist/terrorist? People tend to forget that Nelson Mandela a communist, founded a terrorist group that tortured people with flaming tires around their necks.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      George Bush tried, to change the mind of the sick people- Communist, as all people are born free and should live free of Tyrants!

  • Jeff Beisker

    Show the lack of understanding of how much this man did for Africa when he was president and afterwards. He and his wife are a class act.

  • lcky9

    well what would you expect if they were in this country they would be for Obama ,,they have no more interest in the facts than they do here.. maybe it’s in the DNA and I am by NO MEANS a BUSH fan quite the opposite.. but on the same token I am not an Obama fan either but when it comes to class and social graces the BUSH’S have it hands up on the CLINTON’S .. CARTER’S.. AND OBAMA’S From someone who comes from Chicago., Obama is the one who should be boo’d

    1. Are South Africans aware of all the good Bush has done for that continent?

    2. Mark my words, the scumbags at MSNBC will no doubt laugh about this.

  • kmasitti

    Really? Clinton is right there with him, are they sure it wasn’t the Clinton’s getting boo’d?

  • Marty West

    Left wing morons have never known a fact in their life. Other than the fact they must destroy all that is good.
    I can’t stand GW, but he has done more in Africa to help than any other President. Far more than Mandela the terrorist ever done.

  • Daniel E West

    Wasn’t the time or place to boo anyone. But it speaks volumes to the lack of intellect in S A . Evedently Mandela failed to give credit to Bush for sending more money to fight aids in Africa than ANY president past or present. Maybe we sould start cutting back on monies being sent there as well. Let the rest of the world share in their welfare.

    Yeah, we know its a deluded rightist fantasy: That you would educate yourself (ves).

  • rambler

    True class, social graces and moral fiber are not part of the lib/prog world. Crass, disgusting, deplorable and hate filled rants are all part of what is acceptable when faced with those who oppose their ideology. It’s all part of the multiple personality disorder that the lib/prog group suffers from. They tolerate the intolerable and yet won’t tolerate anyone not fully and completely agreeing with them.

    • Cross67

      Well said!

  • G.b. Tippin

    that is because they haven’t done shit compared to Bush. NO president has spent more money and created more programs than Bush. Obama has drastically cut the funding and programs that Bush set up so shut your liberal hole.

  • Riordan Kynes

    I personally wouldn’t take this insult too seriously given the fact that this happened in one of the Rape Capitals of the world.

    Stupid comment. Christianity has done nothing to dispel those myths created culturally over there.

Stop makiing hateful, stupid comments.

    Mr Hein…
    What has former Presidnts Carter and Clinton ever done to help rid Africa of this dreaded diseases of Aids?. booing President Bush just showed many of this nation this selfishness and ignorance. Like many citizens here ignorance is at pandemic llevels. President and Mrs Bush have tried to help. This nation and he’s booed? .Sorry to me that shows selfishness a d ignorance and hate. WE need to cut off funding to these nations who just use this country to our tax money. Our country is trillions in debt but we give to enemies of this country and to ungreatful ignorant nations like South Africa. time to keep,our tax dollars home. No more foreign aide except to true given allies. Signed … A Mom Against Obama in California…

  • Richard Wellman

    Why does SA care about George W. Bush anyway? Not one SA soldier was a part of the “coalition of the willing” in Iraq. And what does South Africa do for its fellow African nations? nothing.

    What abunch of loser scum!! Bush sent more money and aid to africa to help poor and those inflicted with aids!!!! CUT THEM OFF

    Of course he was booed. For 8 years, the mainstream media bombarded the world with anti-Bush headlines in an orchestrated fashion.

  • twoedgedsword

    Steve Hein : In every reply, you take some statement then comment in an incredibly exaggerated way with personal projection on it and THEN ask “Why is everything a “left wing line” in your deluded rightist fantasy”.

    How is it that you miss your own clear contradiction? So there’s your answer Steve-O. Because where you are concerned, everything IS as “left wing line”. This isn’t a shot at you dude…. it’s just the state of affairs and it’s not a new thing.

  • Mike in Virginia

    That’s because they hate white people, situation normal, nothing to get upset about.

  • Cross67

    South Africa is still divided by race but it is the white South Africans being persecuted now. Bush is white, they only see black, thus their response. So pitifully sad…..can’t believe the praise a mass murderer has received from so many “respectable” people. Sickening….

    • MC12

      How do you know?

      • Shubi

        Hey, MC12, think you could try writing in complete sentences? That way, you might make a little more sense; people might actually understand what you are asking. For instance, you could have asked, “How do you know South Africa is still divided by race?” Or you might have gone with, “How do you know Mandela was a mass murderer?” Perhaps you could have said, “How do you know they don’t like Bush because of his being white?” But, no, being the lazy, liberal, teenaged slacker you are, you couldn’t be bothered to form a complete thought. Try again, bozo. You are welcome.

    It is because of GWBUSH that PEPFAR even exist. A program that if it had not put in place by the Bush Administration there would be massive death from AIDS in Africa. Many a black person in Africa owe their lives to this man. President Bush has done more for the African continent than any other President in American history.

  • Craig

    Actually Stevo, his facts are straight. He didn’t say that SA wasn’t a Christian country. He said they are a bunch of savages who rape virgins. Here is a quote from the 25 July 2013 NY Post that bears out his opinnion. SA has pretty much become the rape capitol of the world.

    In the year to April 2012, more than 64,000 sexual offences, including rape, were reported among South Africa’s 50 million people. Of these, more than 25,000 were assaults on children.

    In 2010, South Africa recorded 132.4 cases of reported rape per 100,000 population, by far the highest among countries that reported statistics to the United Nations, compared to 27.3 in the United States or 2.1 in Uganda. Reporting rates and definitions of rape do, however, vary sharply from country to country.

    It seems the South Africans like a conniving lying poser more than a person of class.
    So what else is new?

  • praymorenow1

    So it’s pretty much what happened at the Coretta Scott King funeral…..
    I don’t think Bush cared, nor will it matter much in the long run.
    It’s not about him anyway. It’s not about Obama.
    It’s to pay respects to a 95 yr. old iconic leader on a troubled continent, in a troubled nation w/ hope….and turmoil.
    It’s a mass funeral, tens of thousands, and lots of hysteria….and thankfully, no one seemed to get hurt at this thing.
    I have no idea what mendezjb is writing about, other than possibly being a bot blogger meant to give the left some jabs to take at the right….which is not unheard of. I hope that’s what it is. If that’s your real mentality, buddy, you need to back off the coffee and get some sun and therapy …and grow up a bit.

  • Dorothy Steglich Kashata

    If they booed anyone at a funeral, they are an ungrateful country. That is despicable. How can that be possible. They cry, carry on about their great President Mandela passing away, and then this?? That is, well, I will quit here. Sorry about that.

  • PolkaDot

    I have to congratulate Stevo Hein. He deserves a special prize for the stupidest comment (and competition is fierce) that caused most smart replies.

  • NewWest 123

    George Bush spent so much money caring from his “heart for these ungrateful bastards! This is sickening!!

    • PolkaDot

      Whose money did he spend, by the way?

      • NewWest 123

        It is not the point and let us not talk about who’s money he spent…. How about the current goon…. More than any other President combined!!!!!

        • PolkaDot

          IT IS THE POINT. It is very easy to be generous with somebody else’s money. I will not disagree that the current President has spent even more of OUR money than the previous one on multitude of mostly useless projects. This does not justify careless spending by his predecessor, the second biggest spender in the US history. This is why the Federal Government should take care of the functions that are specifically delegated to it.
          I will repeat my point from another post: booing anyone at the funeral shows lack of class, and is first and foremost disrespectful to the deceased. It also shows an absolute lack of self-respect.

          • NewWest 123

            Yes he did spend out of control at least in 2006 when the libs took control of both houses, and yes he should have vetoed much of these runaway spenders but we are not talking about spending per say as this is about these disrespectful #^%*}€ all over the world who do this because George Bush was not a socialist. They all want our tax payer money and have no respect or appreciation for it. This is and was my point. Obama is ten times worse and gives even more to these terrorists. Nation building is a joke and always has been cause they hate us. It is always gimmi, gimmi and we should be looking after our own not them. The money never goes to where it is supposed to… A lot like here!!

          • PolkaDot

            Once again, we are in agreement on disrespect, but please, stop being an apologist for W. Reckless spending started when Republicans had majority in both Houses. This was one of the major reasons why Republican party lost in 2006, 2008 and 2012.

          • NewWest 123

            Hmmmm…. It sounds like you may be supporting our current President…. Not sure. Like I said, this president has spent more than ALL the previous presidents combined and has three years to go…. I say this one and his supporters need to take responsibility after five years of this grief and stop blaming Bush or anyone else for that matter!

          • PolkaDot

            I am not quite sure what do you mean by saying that aren’t present I spent more than all the previous presidents. If you are talking about accumulation of debt,you are factually wrong, O is responsible for (roughly) $7 trillion, W for $% trillion, and the rest of them for another $5 trillion. If you mean annual spending, then yes, it is at unprecedented level. So let me try to bring my point across once again fifth: Federal Government (please pay attention, I am not mentioning either of major political parties) has no business spending your and my money on fighting AIDS in Africa, buying helicopters for security forces of corrupt Afghan government and myriad other projects. None whatsoever.
            PS: Which part of my previous post made you think that I support current President? Just curious…

  • pabarge

    This is why we need to cut all foreign aid to Africa. Cold turkey. Now. Completely stop the flow of funds from America to Africa. Stop giving to charities that work in Africa. Africa fails or thrives on its own, with nothing from us. Nothing.

    South Africa has no respect for anybody or anything.

Let’s have a look: Sentence #1 – displays an unfamiliarity with the concept of righteous indignation and unnecessarily injects race into the discussion. Verdict: you are both ignorant and racist. Sentence #2 – has you laughing at your own intellectual deficiencies. Verdict: you are a vacuous mental midget. Sentence #3: comsists of a silly non sequitur. Verdict: your reading comprehension skills are sorely lacking and/or you are completely incapable of presenting a coherent argument and are reduced to spouting gibberish. Summary: you are a pathetic fool who should avoid posting your drivel on the internet for all to see and laugh at. You are welcome.

  • A Lee

    Even if you were left wing you should defend an ex-president when he wrongly gets booed overseas. It is called having class. If you are wondering what that means it is the opposite of booing an ex-president when he is a guest in your country. Who cares about Christian/Muslim? It is called having class and honor.

Just try to follow me: ANYBODY who boos during ANY funeral at ANYONE has NO CLASS. Zero. Zilch. Wrong time. Wrong place. Wrong thing to do.

    The President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR/Emergency Plan) was a commitment of $15 billion over five years (2003–2008) from United States President George W. Bush to fight the global HIV/AIDSpandemic. The program initially aimed to provide antiretroviral treatment (ART) to 2 million HIV-infected people in resource-limited settings, to prevent 7 million new infections, and to support care for 10 million people (the “2–7–10 goals”) by 2010. PEPFAR increased the number of Africans receiving ART from 50,000 at the start of the initiative in 2004 to at least 1.2 million in early 2008.[1][2] PEPFAR has been called the largest health initiative ever initiated by one country to address a disease. The budget presented by President Bush for the fiscal year 2008 included a request for $5.4 billion for PEPFAR.[3]

    The massive funding increases have made anti-retrovirals widely available, saving millions of lives.[4][5][6] Critics contend that spending a portion of funding on abstinence-until-marriage programs is unjust[1] while others feel that foreign aid is generally inefficient.[2] According to a 2009 study published in Annals of Internal Medicine,[7] the program had averted about 1.1 million deaths in Africa and reduced the death rate due to AIDS in the countries involved by 10%

  • PolkaDot

    Booing anyone at the funeral shows lack of class. Wrong time, wrong place, whether one agrees with the person or not. And, irrespective of my opinion of Pres. G. W. Bush’s policies, South Africa, being the country with very high (possibly the highest in the world) rate of HIV, should be thankful for $15 billion of US taxpayer’s money spent in Africa fighting this still VERY deadly disease.

  • locosmom

    I predict an black uprising in South Africa now that Mandela is no longer there to preach peace to them, because, now they will want to be the next Mandela, starting as a terrorist and becoming a beloved leader and peacemaker. Whites look out!!! I also predict that every speech from here on out, obozo is auditioning to be the leader of the UN. Love them or hate them, the Bushs have more class in their little toe than the obozos will ever have.

  • Woody66

    Those who booed, entirely miss the point of Nelson Mandela’s life, message, legacy! Ignorance from people who will always be part of the “have nots”, and who can’t understand why their destiny has been – so far – what it is. Hmmm…(scratching my head).

    @EthanLRivera “George W Bush was booed at Nelson Mandela’s funeral? Nevermind that Bush has done more than any politician on earth for Africa.”

    Yet he and First Lady Laura were the first people to stand up and give
    Obama a standing ovation for a great teleprompter read. And nevermind
    that GWB was LOVED by the African people, and by Nelson Mandela for his
    unprecedented humanitarian efforts in Africa, and nevermind that he was
    always treated like a god for his work, and managed to stay humble
    through it all.

  • Shubi

    Gotta say, I’ve lost a little bit of respect for Bush for even attending that feces-fest. And then vigorously applauding an idiotic speech by the America-hating-racist-in-Chief? Pathetic. Who could possibly be surprised by the reaction Bush got from the degenerates attending such a farce?

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      It’s about doing the right thing, come hell or high society.

      And I consider it a very funny way of annoying the twerps: The decent among the throngs present won’t mind him – the others deserve the pain (for them) of his presence. You might call it a sprinkling of poetic justice…

      • Shubi

        While I can appreciate the idea of “annoying the twerps,” I don’t view Bush’s actions as “doing the right thing.” This whole immortalization of Mandela is a complete fraud; and Bush’s affirmation of this farce is not the right thing to do. I see Mandela’s fame/reputation as being synonymous with Obama’s: both are nothing more than the creations of leftist media, the deification of two undeserving, low-class reprobates.

        • Infinite_Indeterminism

          Two points:

          1. There’s a time and a place, and the funeral ain’t the place for a thorough walk-trough of the whole subject matter.

          2. The actual educational process of future generations is something that will take quite some time, regardless – and will involve research, books, reports, etc., all of which takes time to do properly.

          Oh, and one more thing: O’bama is a paper tiger, Mandela actually did some things, good or bad. So, in his case there is some substance to make judgments about – in abject contrast to the nothingness that currently infests the Spite House.

          • Shubi

            I hear you. My point about Mandela, however, isn’t that he never “actually did some things;” it’s that the things he did aren’t worthy of the baloney that is being served up lately. I find this portrayal of him as some sort of legendary, saintly, healer-of-the-world figure to be pretty sickening. But I do agree that there is more substance to Mandela than Obama.

    • MC12

      Feces-fest? Are you five years old?

      • Shubi

        Man, are you lame. It’s called an epithet; and you WISH you had HALF the wit it takes to come up with such words. Got anything approaching intelligent to say? Didn’t think so. Back to the drawing board, junior.

  • $84598387

    Even after he did more for Africans with AIDs than any president or leader before him! Ingrates.

  • thinkingabovemypaygrade

    So sad. Shows that IGNORANCE by the attendees over there is similar to the IGNORANCE of many over here. Pres GW Bush spearheaded a MAJOR AIDS program to help Africa (guess noone told them)…Pres GW Bush (for most of his two terms…had a higher employment rate for everyone in the US(black or white). Pres. Bush had MANY minority officers in his cabinet…probably more than anyone before him. But IGNORANCE and SUSCEPTIBILITY to propaganda is not limited to the US population.

      • Shubi

        You have trouble spelling “Mandela” and exhibit poor sentence structure in your post. Plus, you left out a question mark in one of those poorly composed sentences. Yet, you have the nerve to call Stoneyjack ignorant just because you disagree with him. Good one.

        No thank you, I wish to address the pile of straw men, non-arguments (e.g. “u r libtard!)accusations of anti-semitism (neocons and the jewish race card, probably because it says Jebus loves Israel in the bible or something) and flat-out lies. Given the majority of responses, it is clear that neocons do not believe in facts or rational discussion, not that I didn’t know that anyway.

        • redbirddeb

          Poor Steve. Give it up, will ya?

        • Shubi

          Oh, I get it now. In order to be considered “rational discussion,” one’s posts must include terms such as “neocons” and phrases such as “…it says Jebus loves Israel in the bible or something.” Gotcha. Somehow I don’t believe your understanding of the words “facts” and “rational” are the same as what one might find in a dictionary. Maybe you could go look them up?

          • Stevo Hein

            No, I think your irrational love for Israel, your belief that government is too large and is a bad thing WITH THE EXCEPTION TO THE MILITARY WHICH MUST BE AS BIG AS POSSIBLE, your disdain for science and evolution and education in general and the preference for straw men and insults in arguments as shown here are not examples of rational discussion.

          • Shubi

            I find your complete lack of self awareness hilarious. More! More! You actually have the nerve to accuse ANYONE of having a “preference for straw men and insults in arguments as shown here?” You probably don’t realize it, but all of your posts are chock-full of both. Of course, projection IS a serious problem for all liberals; so I guess I can’t fault you too much there. Neocons? Anti-science? Anti-education? I hope you don’t truly believe your own nonsense – that would make you even more foolish than your posts make you appear. Try again, Bozo. (Yes, that was an insult.)

    Don’t you just love the gratitude that people who have received financial, and political support from the United States show, at times like these? Clearly the people at the memorial who booed Pres. Bush have very short memories. I hope the next conservative POTUS rethinks foreign aid, and remembers the lack of gratitude from the “handout crowd.” It’s one thing to waste tax dollars at home, but quite another when they’re handed out to human beings who don’t deserve our charity.

          And kindly remember that this kind of disease could also travel via, say, a German tourist, or a Belgian diplomat. There are some sub-groups of a population that can be considered relevant for special attention, but no segment of the population can be excluded from consideration in such matters.

          And one other thing, I think you’re forgetting that it is a big continent with diverse conditions. It’s not all Sahara, or all famine, or all Nigeria…

    Folks….Here’s our news media at work covering for their messiah.

    Via NBC News:

    On his way to the rostrum, Obama also shook the hand of Robert Mugabe, the strongman ruler of Zimbabwe, and hugged Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil, who has stridently opposed spying by the National Security Agency and criticized the U.S. government.

    UPDATE: NBC quietly deletes the Mugabe reference, no correction noted.

    • spaceycakes

      heh; and calling Mugabe the ‘strongman ruler of Zim’ is like saying Stalin tried to help the Ukraine.

  • fredschnaubelt

    Booing Americans is what the communists teach in universities, even American universities (and shouting down opponents). They are terrified of people who are not drunk with power and they try to intimidate and censor anyone with an alternative viewpoint to their craving to rule other people. Don’t get upset, it has been going on for centuries, under different names. Think of the hundreds of Greek and Roman Imperators and other authoritarians since who have been assassinated by one side or the other.

  • mtshark

    This funeral was attended by numerous Communist, Socialist and Theocratic world leaders along with many terrorist leaders and those linked to terrorism. When these types of people boo you, it’s a good thing, it’s when they cheer you that you know you’re on the wrong side of History.

      As with your other comments, you show deep knowledge of the subject and high level of intelligence.

  • it’s my opinion

    Bush is booed and Obama snaps a picture of himself. Both are ignorant and rude.

  • it’s my opinion

    NBC actually reported about Obuttzo taking his own picture.

  • MichaelG23

    Communism and socialist are pigs. What else can be said.

  • truthcraver

    Booing of President Bush? This, while our CURRENT President was “smiling and taking selfie shots on his cell phone” during the memorial
    service. Outrageous immaturity and irreverence, Mr. Obama – your true personality came to the surface – shameful!

  • Larry Mickelson

    I don’t for the life of me know what Bush was doing there. Of course he would get booed, just think about the crowd that Mandela’s funeral would draw. Like fly’s on S#IT !!!!

  • playamoth

    The booing was for the wars he waged, the lies he’s told and the lives lost be it American or another. He is lucky as he could have been arrested for crimes against humanity.

    • Shubi

      And YOU, my friend, should be arrested for crimes against intelligence and common sense.

    • unclebarb

      You should know that more lives of American troops have been taken since the advent of Obama. His rules of engagement have caused more death to American troops than ever happened under Bush.

    • HJD

      The wars he waged with total support from both houses of Congress, and the international community. Speaking of lies, how’s your health insurance, or are you one of the many who are getting tossed into Medicaid? As for crimes against humanity, please spare me.

  • BobGuy

    Well… Giving such high honors to Mandella, who was a murderer and a terrorist, just shows you how goofy folks are. Booing GW was pretty stupid based on his massive resume’ of achievements and ongoing work specifically benefiting African people.

  • Larry Mickelson

    For the life of me I don’t know what Bush was doing there. Just think about the crowd that Mandela’s funeral would draw. Like fly’s on feces!

  • Larry Mickelson

    For the life of me I don’t know what Bush was doing there. Just think about the crowd that Mandela’s funeral would draw.

  • AZGunslinger

    Just goes to show US taxpayer $$$ to battle AIDS in Africa was wasted on ungrateful slugs.

  • David Fuhrman

    All they know is what the press tells them and, the world press follows in lockstep with what the American press puts out.

  • tessaprn

    This is what one receives when they do what they can to improve another’s life in another country. I would be petty enough to tell them to piss off for any future assistance but the Bush’s will continue to work with them and for them!

  • Worried

    of course they booed Bush, he is white, Africans are noted for their bigotry

  • David Silva

    Perhaps Mr. Bush was booed because of the fact that his war conglomerate, The Carlyle Group is the largest private company on earth. That makes he and Dick Cheney/Halliburton, who made $39 billion in blood money off the Iraq war, the two largest war profiteers of all time. Add the fact that Iraq war was based 100% on lies, and the big surprise is why Cheney & Bush are not in the Hague for war crimes. Being booed is the least of their problems.

    • Voltaire’s Ghost

      1. The Bush family left the Carlyle Group in the 80’s or early 90’s.

      2. No member of the Bush family has ever been the head of the Carlyle Group. The founder and primary beneficiary of the Carlyle Group has always been George Soros.

      • YouGoGirl

        David Sliva could care less about this, since it doesn’t make look George Bush particularly bad.

        • Voltaire’s Ghost

          It also exposes George Soros for the war profiteer that he is.

  • F. Richard

    Now, why doesn’t this surprise me one bit? It’s not like he fought to help the suffering of AIDS patients on the continent. Yeah, he deserved to booed.

  • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Abbas is not a Foreign dignitary or head of state. “Palestine” is not, and never has been, a country.

  • Kurt White

    If they want to boo people that actually help them, then I am all for the USA pulling its support and money from that country! We could certainly use those funds back here!

  • Lindakl

    Seems like blaques everywhere only cheer for skin color, but they are not racist?

  • Sylvia Sparks Simpson

    President George W. Bush always represented our country with dignity and class. Barbara taught him well. I can’t even imagine him laughing and taking his picture with a phone. How embarrassing that the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania doesn’t possess the same qualities. It’s true, some things can’t be bought

  • ted

    I booed him for wasting my tax dollars to fight aids in Africa.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Let the international idiots boo. What do they know–they were suckered by Obumuh’s loads’o’crap. Bush’s standing O has to be classified as classy because I’m sure Obumuh’s speech sucked so to give it a standing O was a huge gift.

  • DrSamHerman

    Paul Wellstone’s funeral redux.

    • PolkaDot

      You are absolutely right, same level of self-disrespect and disrespect to the deceased.

  • $36562119

    Well, he’s in the belly of the beast. Many of his AIDS initiatives have succeeded in saving lives through treatment. But the aid on condition of “abstinence- focused” prevention programs have put far more lives in jeopardy.

    • DixT

      Doesn’t say much for those people who refused to remain abstinent, does it? By Golly NO ONE is going to keep them from going from sexual partner to sexual partner—they have RIGHTS, you know!!!

      (And, yes, that was sarc!)

      • sharinite

        DixT you do understand that males still rule in Africa and that they have the same disrespect of women in their culture as the Muslims do in theirs…rape is common but it is never called rape there…girls murdered all the time. No more sarcasm please…

        • $36562119


      • $36562119

        DixT – You should really learn about the culture in Africa before you make such an ill informed statement and the true victims of HIV and Aids.

  • Kenneth James Abbott

    They should have boo’d him. Nelson Mandela was a terrorist and a communist–why would Bush want the ~support~ of people like that?

    • Bustin Cheeto’s Everywhere!

      Ya, I understand why the Obama’s and Clintons went, but why Bush?

      • sharinite

        Respect! You do the obligatories…decent people with manners do. We have become so jaded and unable to be fair minded that we can no longer understand words like responsibility, respect, decency, goodness,…we have become a planet of hate filled whiners.

  • Bustin Cheeto’s Everywhere!

    Obama booed at college basketball game

    This is only the beginning…as his poll numbers keep crashing lower and lower the boo’s will follow him everywhere he goes.

  • DixT

    I believe the funeral consisted of mostly Marxists and Communists, anyway, so not much of a bad reflection on President Bush!

    • Bustin Cheeto’s Everywhere!

      Boom!! You nailed it!!

    • Bob Boren

      You know, I think you are right. Being booed by those idiots is probably a complement. Thanks for the observation!

  • Darlene Dennis

    More proof of the sad, dysfunctional degenerate state of the world. We salute celebrity and boo real Philanthropists and Leaders like President Bush.

  • Red Menace

    Stupd stupid people. If they only knew Obama was polling at Bush levels.

    • sharinite

      You make an assumption that they even have a clue…they do as they are told, still, centuries, centuries later.

  • DixT

    Just another reason why the U.S. needs to keep our money HERE AT HOME!

  • Jean-Luc H Ulmer

    Neocon is definitely en vogue, and if you think they’re not, you’re more than likely a neocon. Now go vote for Chris Christy in 2016. While I have fun being an anti-semetic/liberal/conspiracy theorists, or whatever you just made up. I’ll go vote for Rand, and the other libertarian “nut-jobs.”

    • sharinite

      And that, Jean-Luc, is why Americans thank Rand followers are nutso! Your post proves the point beautifully…thanks for that!

    • SPCAndyJ

      Libertarians: The Montreal Expos of politics…

  • marlio

    They were not so stupid that they would have done that. If anyone was booed it should be been bozo!!! he tried to make the event all about him and was flirting with some woman, much to michelles displeasure.

  • H J

    another reason to strengthen our resolve. truth and decency will win the day.

  • plomaman

    How ignorant and rude… dont they know that GW Bush has done more to stop Aids in Africa than any other President?

    • Wayne Dorniels

      They don’t care…they’ll boo but then stick their hand out for more aid. And we’ll stupidly give it to them.

  • mohammad.felafal

    if George bush was black arrogant and incompetent he would not have been booed.

  • sharinite

    The media all around the planet are progressive democraps nee marxists that have spewed hate for over 70 years and hate America but always have their hands out for our aid…let them all go to hades…no more help!!!!!

  • SPCAndyJ

    This is why we shouldn’t give 18 billion dollars to people who don’t give a sh** about America…ungrateful scumbags.

  • terfull

    I think they were booing the Clintons.

  • Doug Wotton

    With any luck they will all just stay there now that would be the making of a truly merry Christmas and a happy new year :)

  • $29520529

    Because Africa is so progressive and self sufficient without the US. Not. Let them count on themselves for everything and let’s take care of our own.

  • Texan for Life

    Bush has spent his life and HIS MONEY helping Africa with AIDS. The ungrateful commies. He has more class in his little finger than all of Africa.

  • Bert Duane

    What do you expect in an arena full of communist??

  • pj4me

    Booing Bush and not Obama shows the deteriorating condition of the world — it’s lost. Obama has brainwashed too many human beings. Poor stupid people. They don’t understand what they’ve done to our America.

  • awillems

    What is left is right and what is right is left. So basically nothing makes sense anymore . Obama is a total narcacest jerk and acted like a total juvenile at this memorial and Michele’s face showed it. Bush has made a lot of mistakes but he has done more for Africa as far as Aids fund raising and Barack has done nothing. I am so sick of this total liar in chief but I guess the world is as screwed up as half of America, no sense anymore just total idiotic chaos and denial .

  • moi2u

    So….do you think Bush will pull his donations and sponsorship of the AIDS foundations he set up and continues to sponsor now that he knows he’s hated there??? Amazing how ignorance breeds hatred and how the Marxists keep peddling ignorance in S. Africa. The idiots. I’m assuming Bush will continue the work he began there as president of the U.S. as he and Laura are much classier individuals.

  • DailyKenn
    • ProgDestroyer

      Great! Finally a picture that backs up the statement that preezie bowed to another tyrant. This guy is such an azzclown.

  • DailyKenn

    Booed by a crowd of leftists, communists, and terrorists? Is there a greater honor?

    • Hugh Jaskock

      Thanks. I really wasn’t looking at it like that, but you are absolutely correct.

  • Delphinus13

    Wow!! A low-class crowd. Wasn’t it President Bush who pledged Billions to fight AIDS in Africa? Guess that’s what happens when you attend an event filled with Communists.

  • Luis Larmonie

    Progressive’s and Marxism don’t have a limit in their morals. Their only plan is to destroy the Democratic system on all cost!

  • Guest

    People keep saying how classy GWB is. Personally I wish he would stop being so “classy” and speak out about the fact that the present president is shredding the constitution.

  • Tyrconnell

    Hmmm, can’t reply to comments on this subject, now this posting has the reply tag, but other threads don’t, so I can’t reply

    • spaceycakes

      I noticed that too–I wonder if it only applies to those replying to an original post that has been deleted?

  • jondaly

    wow. think of all the south africans who are alive today because of W’s AIDS work. and yet the boo.

  • The_Questman

    Leftists started booing Pres Bush in 2000 and have never stopped. The only Left Wing person who stopped booing him was someone who saw first hand the good that he has done… That person is Bono.

  • johnkay

    Bush did more for Africa than all previous presidents combined

  • Hans Switzer

    Just goes to show that the only reason to go to Africa is to shoot things. I think we should cut off all the aid and give them a reason to be ungrateful.

  • TheBerean

    Classless, Star Wars Bar Scene at this event.

    They should have praised him for all he has done for that country, scandalous .

    Bush could spit on the sidewalk and Malkin would call that classy.
