I'm currently feelin: blank blank

Thought you guys might be interested in this. I saw it on Yahoo News, and read it because I've been following the story.

Bush, Blair say progress on African debt relief

It's interesting by itself, especially for people that are supporting the ONE campaign, but apart from that, Bush is praising Bono:

Quote for those that don't want to read the entire article:

"He praised Irish rock star Bono for his activism on this issue. "I admire him. He is a man of depth and a great heart, who cares deeply about the impoverished folks on the continent of Africa," he said."

Wow. There are actually people in this community who LIKE President Bush?

Okay, sorry, I know that was a generalization and I'm sorry if I offended anyone. But sometimes I feel like I'm the only one here that doesn't hate him. Granted, I don't agree with everything he does, but I do respect him. And I am grateful for what he's done so far with the situation in Africa and I hope and pray he will do more.

Hah, sometimes I'm surprised there are people on LiveJournal, period, who support the President. It's shameful how the media treat him. The President has done good things for the world and history will be kind to him.

For those on the left who bash Bush like it is going out of style, he has done a lot with regards to Africa. Maybe a thank you card is in order...

Apparently he needs to offer a *lot* more in the way of aid before it's going to make any difference, though. I hope he's feeling open to persuasion at the moment...

It's not just America's responsibility, either. That's important to remember. It's something all nations have to work toward.

He hasnt done what he has promised. He promised 11 billion dollars to aide Africa and Im not sure if he even gave 1 billion. I was reading an interview with bono, and he was PISSED.

Great.
Still hate his guts. It hasn't outbalanced all the other crap he's pulled...like....ever.

Thought I might like to weigh in for those against Bush.
And no, I'm not a democrat.
