    Dear President Obama,

    I saw where you and the First Lady gave $15,000 to the Clinton/Bush/Haiti fund. I commend you on this.

    But I have to ask, why not the $1.4 MILLION Nobel peace prize money you promised to donate to charity? What happened to that money? It should go to Haiti.

    Sincerely,

    Me.

    From the press conference yesterday:

    White House Press Briefing by Robert Gibbs, January 19, 2010

    Obama's a multi-millionaire, plus makes $400,000 a year plus $270,000 in expenses, got the $1.4 MILLION from the Nobel folks, and can only donate $15,000 to Haiti?

    It's a conspiracy!

    You seriously think the guy is going to withhold the $1.4 million so people like you can slam him 24/7 for the next three years on that one thing? :eusa_eh:

    Especially when he's going to make millions when he leaves office like every other President in the past thirty years at the very least? :eusa_eh:

    No, stupid.

    I just want to know where the money goes, and wonder why not Haiti?

    He had a great chance for a massive PR boost by saying that 1.4 million was going to Haiti, when he had Bush and Clinton up there, introducing the clinton/bush/haiti fund.

    Where's it going?

    Why does he have to announce where's it going? We all slammed Chris the other night for making a thread about the same exact thing. What do you want? A press conference? :eusa_eh:

    And if he had done that, you would of been slamming him for acting like an arrogant asshole and using this tragedy for PR points. No matter what he does, you'd be unhappy.

    The LAW says so.

    Same way he has to disclose his tax returns.

    He has to disclose it on his tax returns, yes. But he has to have a press conference as to where the money is going?

    Total bullshit.

    I would have applauded him.

    But, I guess I could use your weak strawman and say that you would be all over Bush the rich bastard, for only giving $15,000 when he has millions.

    See how inane and stupid, and dishonest your knee jerk defenses of Obama are?

    Did you read what Gibbs said?

    He has to disclose where that money went. It's the law. He knows it.

    And he will disclose it. I am merely wondering, why not Haiti?
