NO DIAMOND - YOU BACK OFF PLEASE!

Bush has done NOTHING, you Bono-hugger, you!

Seriously, all he's done is take credit for what others have done. In fact, I fully feel he's done this his entire life. I'm not anti-Republican. In fact, there were some Republican candidates that were brilliant and would have obtained my vote. But inexplicably, Bush somehow bought the election and now we have to put up with his useless dribble for another few years.

I started to have some respect for the man after Sept. 11th. But now I know just how "dedicated" he really is to fighting the root of terrorism - and that's pretty much the equivalent to zero.

So don't tell Lilly to back down - you do. Until Bush proves otherwise, your unwavering support of him is illogical.

The Bush honest ?

Well well, I think the times are diferent, all I can say is that we should check the "friends" of the Bush family, for instance some saudi that I don't want to mention here, that after tons and tons of bombs, is still a fugitive, about what I know, the Bush family has had many bussines with mexican politicians over the years, specially in what refers to Oil, just for the record, for his bussines with the Bush family, Jorge Diaz Serrano (PEMEX DIRECTOR) spent 6 years in jail for corruption, I think the best that can happen to the world is that Mr. Bush shut up, ask the japanese maybe he should try pretzels again.

Seriously, you Bush lovers defend Bush with less arguments than the ones that bash him here, why people should trust Bush? and your answer is, just because. or even better you answer "back off" nice way of showing knowledge.

Olive, I just want to make clear that I never, never doubt of Bono honesty, that is the one thing that is more certain. About "photo oportunities", well, check the succes of U2 and Bono in the USA, is easy for a politician to know that he will won more than it would lose hanging with that guy. and if is just one vote, they will go for it. and after the latest developments, it seems they only smiled to Bono while he was there, as soon as he leaved, they changed their minds.

I'm glad to see this topic being debated by you all. I'd like to have faith in GW that he'll actually make a difference with debt relief and all BUT isn't he taking that trip to Africa in 2003? Hey, I know the man is busy but why put off such an important trip until then? The stats showing how many people dying in Africa are staggering. Why wait????

America isn't the only wealthy country. I wonder what England and Canada are offering in way of assistance? Australia even. Europe?
It's a shame that the world looks on America to get people out of trouble. Africa is in dire need of help. $200 mil/$500 mil. Every bit helps. If or when Bush opens the purse strings and gives the much needed aid, I doubt Bono will care much about getting thje credit for it. I believe his intentions are great too. Sure he'd be irked. It would piss anyone off.
If the Bush supporters are right, combined with Bono's persistance and the many others involved, time will show that he'll come good with the money. I'd just like to see the rest of the world helping.
That'd be nice, wouldn't it?

Hi Angela Harlem,

First, I have to say, you get my vote for THE coolest U2 screen name ever.

Second, from the concerns in your post, I bet you'll be happy to hear that the other countries you mention DO give more than the US. I remember Prof. Sachs (from the Center of Intl. Development at Harvard) saying that. Link to the the interview is on u2.com.

So long, Angela Harlem. (Sorry.... )

SD

What you imply is that the Bush family is so good at heart that they didn't know who they were dealing with? now they are even dumb? And I didn't expect more from you than the racist comment.Tha shows your class. If you want to know about corruption, check latest big USA coorporations fiascos

I think I'm smart enough, to eat pretzels, and not choke.
The point is that you want to show why people should trust Mr. Bush. Especially since he is the one that apparently lied to Bono, and the people that trusted in the matter we were discussing here.

And still not arguments. I guess I'm asking too much

Have a nice day

Sherry-
Youre right Prof. Sachs did say this.
He is an esteemed, wise man.

HOWEVER-
These OTHER countries you mention that give more , can, and should right now. This FACT you are glossing over is..
..these other countries DO NOT have the SAME amount of items/problems.. on their plates as THE USA. (deficits/War on Terror..ect.)

Raf-
Plez stop fighting w Z.
Z plez stop egging him on.

You two fellas are like a Protestant and a Catholic arguing about Grace.
My advice-
Agree to disagree.
Peace.

Raf -Remember Diet Coke for me once GW is re-elected..and plez have Brother Vincente' Fox run it up to me..POOLSIDE

thank u
Diamond

Who cares whether Clinton or Bush did more? No more politician bashing.

I have said it before and I will say it again ... this is NOT a partisan issue? It's not an issue defined by borders, religion, or race.

It's a HUMAN issue. If you're human and have some level of compassion in your heart, you will recognize the need to reach out and help your fellow man.

Even if you don't have compassion, you should recognize the economic need to save Africa from the bruden of AIDS and debt.

A few months ago, I heard Andrew Young (mayor of Atlanta and fromer press secretary for Martin Luther King Jr.). He said that the root of violence is poverty. We see it inner cities of America today, we saw it in Afganistan and now we're seeing it in Africa ... violent men take over the government and institute tyranistic governments.

The US has got to help ... some way, some how. There are countries much smaller than the US committing more money to the problem (money in terms of a percent of their GDP). We should be setting the standard ... not falling behind it.
