Remember Kanye West's words:

"President Bush doesn't care about black people."

But the guy who organized "Live Aid" sure has a different opinion:

Mr. [Bob] 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.

"You guys didn't pay attention," Geldof said to a group of reporters from all the major newspapers. (Link.)

Geldof sure has a lot to learn about the American (well, world, too) press and their treatment of Republicans/conservatives, doesn't he?

Ooh...and do you recall the please-let-me-get-out-of-the-frame-with-this-guy look that Mike Myers had won his face when Kayne said it?

Jeez, the Philly Inquirer has yet to report Geldof's claim. They must have missed it somehow? I am sure it will be in tomorrow's edition. Ya think?
