Bono Praises President Bush
Only a man this secure in his own talent would break rank with celebrity dogma to praise an American President - and a Republican at that.
From last Sunday's Meet the Press:
"Well, I think [President Bush has] done an incredible job, his administration, on AIDS. And 250,000 Africans are on antiviral drugs. They literally owe their lives to America.
In one year that's being done. … Yes, there's a lot of pressure on President Bush. If he, though, in his second term, is as bold in his commitments to Africa as he was in the first term, he indeed deserves a place in history in turning the fate of that continent around."
Well said. I may actually have to start listening to U2 again.
No comment from Jon Bon Jovi or Dave Matthews Band at the time of this writing.
