WASHINGTON (AFP) President Barack Obama on Saturday urged his fellow Americans to get tested for HIV in an effort to reduce transmission of the virus that causes AIDS.

"On this 14th commemoration of National HIV Testing Day, I urge Americans to take control of their own health -- and protect those they love -- by getting tested for HIV and working to reduce HIV transmission," Obama said in a statement.

So what? I think it is only responsible. I know I had myself tested before I married just to make sure.

So what? Well, I think it's pretty important for Americans to get tested for HIV. It doesn't hurt for the President to suggest it. People do listen to those they admire, whether it's celebrities, politicians, or friends and family members.

You're right. I shouldn't have paid any attention to your comment at all. I've learned my lesson.

What an idiot.

What, does he think AIDs just broke out last week?

Does he really think people need him to tell them to do such a thing.

The colossal arrogance of the man knows no bounds.

How will the right-wingers put a negative spin on this one? It should be entertaining to hear if nothing else.
