Bono of U2: Free market hypocrite?

All about capitalism for Africa, supports socialist here in America

by Eric Dondero

Here's three surprising pull-out quotes from Bono from a November 12 speech at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

From ValuesandCapitalism blog:
"Aid is just a stop-gap. Commerce [and] entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty than aid."

"In dealing with poverty here and around the world, welfare and foreign aid are a Band-Aid. Free enterprise is a cure."

"Entrepreneurship is the most sure way of development."
Yet here in the U.S. Bono regularly appears with socialist politicians in the Democrat Party and expresses his support for America's Marxist president Barack Obama.

Go figure?

I despise Bono. Always have. U2 is one of those bands that you like two or three songs. How anybody can listen to an entire CD is beyond me.
