George Bush Backs President Barack Obama After Rush Limbaugh’s Haiti Comments
As recently reported on HipHopRX.com, Rush Limbaugh, the controversial radio talk show host, advised the American people not to give aid/money to the Haitian people. Mr. Limbaugh said that the President is using the Haiti disaster to improve his standings with blacks in our country. George Bush has now come to the President’s defense.
Former President Bush views Obama’s immediate response simply as an effort to get help to the Haitian people as soon as possible. The people expect a quick response, but it takes time to get supplies in order. There are plenty of organizations that are willing to help, but it takes time to organize a plan, like the one both Presidents Bush and Bill Clinton have developed with the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund at www.clintonbushhaitifund.org to help others in doing their part.
Even if President Obama was using the tremendous disaster for political gain, wouldn’t it still benefit the people of Haiti? At a time like this, isn’t that what’s most important?
Bush said during an appearance on NBC‘s, “Meet the Press” that he’s been “briefed by the President about the response,” and as he’s already said in an opening statement, he appreciates “the president’s quick response” to the Haiti earthquake disaster.
