Talk vs. Action


This is a side-by-side worth considering:

On This Week yesterday, John Edwards said: “But the genocide, global poverty, the spread of HIV/AIDS, the atrocities that are occurring in northern Uganda, there are a whole range of places that America would have basically universal support if we showed some leadership.”

The Washington Post reports: “The president has tripled direct humanitarian and development aid to the world’s most impoverished continent since taking office and recently vowed to double that increased amount by 2010 — to nearly $9 billion.” — (Bush Has Quietly Tripled Aid to Africa, by Michael A. Fletcher, Washington Post, December 31, 2006 )
