What You Won't See on CNN

President Bush is in Africa for a five nation tour currently and he is getting quite the welcome. His popularity is due in large part to his sincere desire to fight against aids and poverty throughout the continent.

While he was addressing a crowd in Tanzania (where the picture above was taken) attendees saw him as the "compassionate conservative", a term he emphasized quite strongly during the campaign eight years ago. President and Mrs. Bush have been pioneers in the war on Aids in Africa. He has been instrumental in combating the Malaria epidemic as well. He has even outspent President Clinton in programs and initiatives to better the continent.

The president of Tanzania credits Bush with saving the lives of hundreds of thousands of women and children due to his African agenda and ambitions. Thousands of Tanzanians showed up at Bush's arrival to show the support and solidarity of a grateful nation.

So while he may be abhorred by the liberals here in the homeland, the citizens of Tanzania and other African countries admire President Bush for his morals and willingness to take on complex issues.

But of course, I don't expect we'll see this story in the liberal media anytime soon.

I have always said and strongly believe that Bush will be in the history books as one the best presidents we have had. Things change slowly and the impact he will have made on our safety and security will be seen.

I have to double check but I think it was Eisenhower that left office with approval ratings in the high teens low 20's. He has gone on to be one of the most beloved presidents of our time. He had to make hard choices that weren't popular with people, but that it what the president needs to do.

That's an excellent point.
Ike was commonly referred to as the "do-nothing" president in the 1960s. However today he often appears in Top 10 lists of most successful presidents.
