    You are preaching to the choir on this one. I may have grave disagreements with his getting us into Iraq and how he handled the economy....but you will find me totally applauding his efforts on the AIDS front.

    But Reagan pandering to the Moral Majority turned AIDS into the nightmare that it is today.

    For the record, this is what inspired the poll.

    AIDS was nearly eradicated during the George W. Bush administration.

    Reagan took a smart approach to the outbreak. It was the liberal aisle that wanted to cage like animals anyone that had HIV or AIDS...Treat them like lab rights.

    The poster insists that GWB nearly eradicated AIDS.

    The definition of eradication by the CDC is



    Now his use of "nearly" is subjective...but I think we can come to some agreement anyway.

    So did GWB nearly eradicate AIDS?
    Er, maybe someone should have checked with Africa before he posted.

    Edit: Credit where credit is due:
