Democrats, Republicans Find "Common Ground" in Acknowledging Bush's AIDS Work

September 7, 2012

In Foreign Policy's "Passport" blog, Associate Editor Uri Friedman reflects on former President George W. Bush's efforts against AIDS, highlighting PEPFAR, which he "established in 2003 and which now supports antiretroviral treatment for 4.5 million people around the world." Friedman quotes former President Bill Clinton, who, speaking at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, said, "I have to be grateful, and you should be too, that President George W. Bush supported PEPFAR. It saved the lives of millions of people in poor countries." Friedman continues, "[W]hat's particularly notable about the reference is that, during a convention season designed to draw sharp distinctions between Republicans and Democrats, the two parties have found common ground on at least one point: the success of Bush's efforts to fight AIDS."

Speaking of all things political...

Do the Democratic Party support AIDS DENIALISM??

As they had "The Foo Fighters" preform at the DNC. A Band that had a link to "Alive and Well: AIDS Alternatives" (Christine Maggoire's Orgnaization) on their website until February 2012.

The band also used to hand out AIDS DENIALIST literature at their concerts. SHAME !


Big slap in the face to all those living with HIV/AIDS in the United States and Globally.
