I was watching some news on NBC or ABC or something a couple days back. There was an interview with Pres. George W. Bush where someone was actually telling him he had done something good. The reporter said that Bush during his tour of duty had done more than any other American president for Africa. The reason for that dates back to January 28, 2003 when he decided to wage war, war on HIV which is killing off so many in the African nations. I do not know our president personally, and I do not know if he is always is true or right. I do know that he is not perfect. I do now know that there are some things that he has gotten right.
I have to challenge you, before you speak, or act or criticize: make a point to know what you are talking about, that way at least if you tend to disagree with him you’d be balanced and not just a mimicking parrot in your regurgitation of erroneous facts about this man. If for the most part you agree with “G-Dawg” you should also find that there are some things that he has done that will not make sense to you. It is okay to question him, he is not divine. He does do wrong. Deal with it. Don’t parrot what you heard someone say and make it your argument unless you have the background info to actually know why you think that way. Personally I completely disagree with his policy on Immigration. I fully agree with the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR/Emergency Plan).
I do not believe that a President can do no wrong, I do not believe he/she to be flawless and unquestionable, but I do see that there is good in almost all people and that if we get rid of all the negative things we are constantly focusing on we might find that that person (whom we thought we “knew”) was actually much more like us, than previously known. We might find out that he is human. We might find that President George W. Bush had done good things, that we should have known about all along. I found that out.
Honestly, I am not into politics, I know for not being into politics I sure have been politiky lately, I guess maybe I’m more into social politics(if that exists)…just like I am not into history just for the facts and dates, I am into these things for the people, for the African children with malaria and aids, for the Iraqi people, who think they may finally have a shot at freedom. I am into this for knowing what the President’s heart is, what is behind the facades of all things unknown.
What am I saying?: If you find him full of fault you are wrong, if you find him fault-less you are wrong. He should not be so revered that all that he does is perfect and just, and he should not be so wronged as that all that he accomplishes is selfish, ugly and incompetent. seriously, who can please (or displease) a “miseducated” audience?
President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR/Emergency Plan). The Emergency Plan is the largest commitment ever by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease — a five-year, $15 billion, multifaceted approach to combating the disease around the world. The United States now leads the world in its level of support for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
America is leading the fight against disease. With your help, we’re working to cut by half the number of malaria-related deaths in 15 African nations. And our Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief is treating 1.4 million people. We can bring healing and hope to many more. So I ask you to maintain the principles that have changed behavior and made this program a success. And I call on you to double our initial commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS by approving an additional $30 billion over the next five years.
