The singer scored with those boom-worthy remarks. Sen. Rubio, John Stossel, author Brad Thor and other Twitter users rightly praised Bono:

Glad Bono sees reason! Now says: “Aid is just a stop-gap…entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty” http://t.co/GSrDnLNDvA

@JimPethokoukis Bono's a smart dude. He also knows how to work politicians of all stripes and doesn't take sides, like some do.

Truth. Bono has often praised President George W. Bush, and evangelicals, for their life-saving work in Africa. Unlike the unhinged Left and lapdogs in the media who still refuse to acknowledge Bush’s long history of initiatives in Africa.

Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik has a small bone to pick, however.

Ding, ding, ding! It is a little disheartening that praise for capitalism and understanding that free enterprise is a great force for good is news. Because, duh. Seriously.
And some exit, non-related snark as only Twitter can bring it:
how does bono not lose his sunglasses every week like the rest of us i don't trust that man

Heh. Perhaps he does. And is stimulating the economy by buying new pairs consistently. Achtung Baby? More like capitalism, baby!
