In his State of the Union Address in January 2003, Bush outlined a five-year strategy for global emergency AIDS relief, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. Bush announced $15 billion for this effort. This plan went unnoticed because most of the funding went to Africa. (The Dutch and the British own way more real-estate there than America) this was almost double throughout his term.
This is his first term lets remember. No one, not Obama (who has close ties there and cant even get his own aunt a green card), Michael Jackson, or any other president (that includes that weak ass apology Clinton gave in '97 for slavery) has gone to task and followed through on any type of aid to the Extent Bush has.
Give the man that. Dont be so hard that you cant tell a person "good job." I say good job for Obama winning the election, I think he been walking into walls every since, but at least I have the common sense to acknowledge the fact that it is historical and a great accomplishment on his part.
One thing that I can say about Bush that I can't say for Obama is the fact that everything he said he was going to do he did it. I'm talking about from Governor of Texas to beyond. Looking back on Obama, I cant say the same thing.
