He Really Cares: Obama Pledges $50 Million to Combat AIDS

Posted by on Dec 01, 2011 at 11:06 am

ABC Radio news breathlessly reported this show of compassion by our dear leader at the top of the hour.

President Barack Obama set an ambitious goal Thursday for significantly increasing access to life-saving AIDS drugs for people in the U.S. and around the world, as he announced a renewed American commitment to ending a pandemic that has killed 30 million people.

“We can beat this disease,” Obama declared, as he announced the new initiatives during a World AIDS Day event in Washington. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton also participated via satellite.

Just imagine the gushing if he gave $15 billion as his predecessor did.

One thing he didn’t inherit from Bush was generosity.

That $50 million from Obama is about the same amount he’ll pick up at fundraisers this week. What a guy.
