That's something that the conservative media would tear up President Obama for if he ever pulled a stunt like that. Did you even read either of the articles you cited? Bush didn't provide 9 billion specifically for AIDS research, it was more of an umbrella investment to help Africa's many nations with their issues. In fact, most of the money went to help the nations of Sudan, Ethiopia, Egypt, and Uganda. Yes, he designated a lot of money to Malaria and AIDS prevention, but it certainly wasn't the 9 billion ... more
