Heroic Timing 

Yahoo! News - Bush to Commit Money to AIDS Drug Program
President Bush, on a fund-raising trip to Pennsylvania, said Wednesday he will commit more money to a program for delivering medications to people with HIV and AIDS. The administration said it would make an additional $20 million available immediately for the drug program.
Our hero!

I wonder how many people will actually read down to this paragraph and understand the implications?
Congress approved the five-year $15 billion AIDS relief plan last year with broad bipartisan support, but there's since been some criticism that actual spending is not reaching the promised level.
That's right, Bush has been sitting on the money until election time so that he could take credit for the gooddeed.

What a jerk.
