U2 lead singer, Bono, lays it on the line: George W. Bush saved 9 million people from AIDS.
News like this needs to be trumpeted in light of the multi billion dollar negative PR campaign leveled against Mr. Bush by the Left and their liberal lapdogs in the MSM.
The Left went after President Bush during his presidency with a vengeance at the same time they give Barack Obama a pass for continuing many of the same policies they so reviled.
Even liberals should appreciate this good news. Bono was ebullient:
“This should be shouted from the rooftops. This is a heroic American story.”
Bono deserves a lot of credit.
So do Christian evangelicals, said Bono:
“It was the evangelicals that did that. Because they, like myself, pestered George Bush and the administration, who actually deserve praise for starting this out.”
It was President Bush who ultimately authorized the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief program that sent $15 Billion to Africa.
The impact? Nine million lives saved, according to Bono.
