History Will Be Kind To This Man

The same program which tried – and failed – to destroy George W. Bush’s re-election chances with their bogus National Guard story actually aired a segment which praised him for his administration’s program to fight AIDS in Africa.

“As President, George W. Bush did something momentous that few of you may know about, something so momentous that it is saving millions of lives and generating goodwill for America around the world.”

So astonishingly began a “60 Minutes” segment last Sunday actually praising the former President that likely got worse press than anyone ever to reside in the White House. 

“Millions of Africans who`d been dying of AIDS are now living with AIDS, thanks to the Bush program,” said CBS’s Bob Simon. 

“There has never been a rescue mission, a mission of mercy of this magnitude that has produced such magnanimous results,” praised an AIDS doctor in Uganda (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):

I guess he doesn’t hate black people after all.

Watch the video linked in the story.  It will warm your heart…and make you long for the days when your president cared about someone other than himself.

  1. And notice, if you will – that smile on George W.’s face. It’s genuine. The man may not have been the world’s greatest public speaker, but damn if he never had me doubting he cared.

    Unlike our current monstrosity. His speeches sound more like open mike night at the “Ha Ha Hut.”

  2. I agree. I think when the dust settles, and the hyperbole becomes a memory, he will finally get some recognition for actually being willing to lead with his conviction, and not by populism.

  3. Frankly, I’m starting to think the impetus behind the ‘OMG! TeH Brotherhood is handing out the death sentence for Teh GHeY in Africa! meme that was criculating around the Blog Version of Animal Farm the final month or so I was there was so they could (try to) discredit Bush’s humanitarian efforts in Africa and give the be-mulleted malamute an out for his apparent 8 years of support for W to set things right with the neo-Koslings there.
