They Said What??? — George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Rahm Emanuel, & Madonna


“It would be a sad and terrible thing if the world chose this moment to lose its focus and will. Other countries and local governments in Africa can do more in providing resources and increasing funding — as the new government of Zambia is doing. But to continue the momentum in the fight against AIDS, America must continue to lead.  It is heart-wrenching to save a woman from AIDS, only to watch her die from cervical cancer, which is more prevalent in women with HIV.” (He says those are two of the leading causes of death in Africa.)


“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.  They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”


(about London being prepared for the Olympics):  “The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials — that obviously is not something which is encouraging.  “Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? And that’s something which we only find out once the games actually begin.”


“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course, it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.  I think we will show the whole world not just that we come together as a United Kingdom, but also we’re extremely good at welcoming people from across the world.  I will obviously make those points to Mitt Romney. I look forward to meeting him.”


(continuing the feud with Lady Gaga over the similarities of “Express Yourself” and “Born This Way”):  “I’m a really big fan of “Born This Way”.   I’m glad that I helped Gaga write it.”


(about recent uproar with a French politician):  “I know that I made a certain Marine Le Pen very angry with me.  And it’s not my intention to make enemies … It’s my intention to promote tolerance. And when we start saying that we have to get rid of this person or we have to get rid of that person, because then we’ll have a better place, it starts to sound like something else, it starts to sound like something scary. So the next time you want to point the finger at somebody and blame them for a problem in your life, take that finger and point it back at you.”


“Playing the Olympia was a magical moment for me and it was a real treat to do this special show for my fans and be so close to them.  Unfortunately at the end of the show — after I left the stage– a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pretending to be angry fans.  The press reports have focused on this and not the joyous aspect of the evening.  But nothing can take away or ruin this very special evening for me and my fans.  When I looked out in the audience, everyone I saw had a smile on their face.  I look forward to having this wonderful experience again.”
