    Under President Obamals Leadership...Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Gates, have cancelled plans and are getting into place to monitor their respective Depts' repsonse to the devastating Quake in Haiti.

    Thank gawd for the Haitians that a Democratic led Admin is in office.

    Gawd, only knows what the response would've been under a GOP led Admin..

    Think Katrina.

    Isn't it ironic that in both cases, the victims of the natural disaster were creole-speaking blacks?

    sure..I'm making a political issue out of it. Why not?

    Only a fool would not notice the competency and response of the US government and walk away without thinking of the disasterous response during Katrina.

    Maybe God is white after all?

    Haiti is the Palestine of the Western Hemisphere. Watch for the gangs and the riots.

    I know a few people that were either over there or will be over there. I hope they survive.

    So true!

    A promise is just a promise.

    And a promise from a politician isn't worth the breath it took to speak it.

    By the way, how much of our tax dollars (that the government doesn't have) did he promise anyway?

    I don't have a problem with sending aid, monetary or otherwise, but where is this aid going to come from?

    Learn to slow down when you see my posts. Think, then type.

    I said response. The results in Haiti will be troubled if only because Haiti is Haiti. Yet funny thing...that didn't stop the Obama admin from acting swifty.

    swifty!

    Sucks when you have to see a real life comparison before your very eyes...minus the FOX/GOP Spin Machine.

    aid for nine million people is a big commitment. but hey! we take care of 12 million illegals what's a few more. we of course borrow more money from China,, til we collapse,, then we say "who is going to help us?" and the world shouts back "nobody."
