What? Wait! Dubya Did Something Good?!?

Apparently Bob Geldof didn't get the memo that Dubya is the Great Satan and blundered into praising the President for his aid to Africa.

Mr. Geldof praised Mr. Bush for his work in delivering billions to fight disease and poverty in Africa, and blasted the U.S. press for ignoring the achievement.

Mr. Bush, said Mr. Geldof, "has done more than any other president so far."

"This is the triumph of American policy really," he said. "It was probably unexpected of the man. It was expected of the nation, but not of the man, but both rose to the occasion."

"What's in it for [Mr. Bush]? Absolutely nothing," Mr. Geldof said.

Mr. Geldof said that the president has failed "to articulate this to Americans" but said he is also "pissed off" at the press for their failure to report on this good news story.

"You guys didn't pay attention," Geldof said to a group of reporters from all the major newspapers.
Oh, Bob. Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob...what can I tell you? They were paying attention, but had to bump all the positive stories to make room for endless rehashings of Abu Grahib, phony claims of torture, and a general agenda of America-bashing in order to demoralize the public into reflexively leaping to the banner of "hope" and "change".

If people thought Dubya was doing good works then the public may give him higher approval ratings and that just wouldn't do, now would it? How can the public be browbeaten into believing we're a cruel, rat bastard country that tyrannize the world when they know we're provided relief to those in need around the world? What do you think these journalists are here to do? REPORT THE FACTS?!?!? Dude, they're in it to CHANGE THE WORLD! Just ask them - they aren't interested in the five Ws, just the destruction of one W.
