Dude who makes nation crave change actually executes positive one

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 1-186We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Pres. Bush actually did something pro-equality and pro-gay today. He signed legislation to reauthorize PEPFAR, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, which included a provision to repeal the law that sweepingly barred HIV-positive visitors and immigrants:

Your thoughts

Thank you for giving credit where it is due. I'm sure there will be a lot of people who will find a way to make a negative joke out of this but it's something and you were pretty respectful in your handling of it.

You'd also be remiss if you didn't mention that he's been doing this since the start of his presidency, and is responsible for saving and extending millions of lives in africa.

Honestly i see Obama as the democratic version of Bush, i see little change in policies if he gains the presidency.

"...he's been doing this since the start of his presidency"

Throughout his entire presidency he's been signing into law a repeal of the explicit HIV travel ban? How do you figure?
