Doin' It Right
Bob Geldof has nothing but praise for the Prez and scorn for the press.
...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.
There it is in a nutshell, The Prez doesn't do P.R. well and the scientific community is united in that fact.
"You guys didn't pay attention," Geldof said to a group of reporters from all the major newspapers.
Plus the press promotes its own agenda so Don't Believe What You Read.
