Jim Wallis praises Bush…and criticizes Obama

Here’s something you don’t see every day. In a recent post on CNN’s website, the Reverend Jim Wallis praised President George W. Bush for his leadership in combatting Aids in Africa…and criticizes President Obama for his failure to keep his campaign promises in this regard.

This is refreshing.

The majority of people with Aids live in Africa. The funny thing I’ve noticed in my travels throughout Africa is that the vast majority of times you ask an African who their favorite president is, they’ll answer Bill Clinton. And yet, George W. Bush arguably did more to help Africa in terms of financial aid and addressing the AIDS issue than Clinton did. Bush doesn’t really get the credit he deserves for helping Africa because…well…he’s Bush.

Now it’s time for Obama to finish what Bush started.

Watching and waiting
