Laura Bush: Abu Dhabi Do-Gooder

10/24/2007 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

First Lady Laura Bush is waging a war of her own in the Middle East -- against breast cancer!
Laura Bush
The 60-year-old, who had a cancerous growth removed from her leg last year, met with breast cancer survivors in the United Arab Emirates this week. Mrs. Bush chatted with the ladies, clad in their little black burkas, at the Sheikh Khalifa Medical Center in Abu Dhabi.

Laura's helping launch the U.S.-Middle East Partnership for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

She should do more for the women over in that country like speaking up for women's rights. Do you know they are treated like dogs over there. If they have any medical problems they have to get permission from their husbands to get medical treatment. So if there is cancer that does not mean they will get medical treatment. So their rights should be first and foremost then go after cancer treatment. You don't put the cart before the horse Laura Bush, you put the horse before the cart.

Are you people really ripping on a woman who went to a third world country to bring attention to a horrible disease? Tacky.

Laura Bush also drinks and drives...and got out of it even though she killed a young man, cause she was wealthy and therefore apparently privileged. Can't stand Laura or any Bush.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Good for her! Losing people to cancer SUCKS! But if her idiot husband is allowed o invade Iran, and it looks like he Really, Really wants to do that, she won't be traveling anywhere near the Middle East! I bet she won't be trying to get any photo ops at any child health care meeting group either.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be slut-whores    

"Out of respect, Mrs. Bush should have been wearing a head covering."

Actually, she should have stayed home and shown respect to the people who DON'T murder in the name of Allah aka Satan.

Instead, she offers blanket approval (no pun intended) to derranged and evil men who cover their women so they don't have to be reminded of their own animal impulses and who also beat their women in the name of Allah aka Satan.

To Juan: Out of respect to whom??? Facist men who want to control women in the name of "protecting them" because they have made up a false religious reason to justify controling half the human race? Yeah, let's have all women look faceless, anonymous, with no voice. Don't you understand that under the Taliban women were not allowed to receive medical care from male doctors (and, of course, women were not allowed to practice medicine), so women had no access to equal medical care. Is that how you would want your mother, sisters, wife, daughters treated? Only ignorant, insecure men think that way.

'o' = 'to'. I'm guilty of bad proofreading and lousy typing. Having mild 'lysdexia' sure doesn't help! It makes me want to 'ball' my eyes out, but at least TMZ fixed that small error quickly! I wonder what security for that event must have been like?

Laura Bush has worn ONE beautiful outfit during her terms as First Lady: The white dress/coat ensemble at the second inauguration; her gown that evening was OK but made her look like an overdressed Christmas tree --- just too much sparkle.

All her pants suit outfits are just toooooooo bourgeois. In her position, the derrière should always be covered - meaning no sight of any separation, if you know what I mean. Thinking about it, does she get her husband's old suits refitted for her?????

I'm not a professional fashion advisor - but then all she needs is some COMMON SENSE! And yes, as First Lady of this country, she MUST exhibit sensitivity to her host countries' rules, laws and costumes.

yes, she's actually doing a good thing, and that's great, but that family could do good things for the next several centuries and still not counter their hideous karma!

ugly (on the inside), embarassing, dangerous family; i put a lot of the blame on the the cold mother, george washington in pearls!
