Here is video of President Obama, flanked by Vice-President Biden, speaking this morning on the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
Obama said the "people of Haiti would have the full support of the United States" in efforts to rescue victims, and to provide needed supplies of food and water.
Obama said the United States is trying to locate Americans who are in Haiti to make sure of their condition.
Search and Rescue teams will arrive later today, and other supplies are on the way. . . . (VIDEO)

Obviously his priorities are w*a*y screwed up.
Boy, I am cranky today. I’ll refrain from posting what I’m thinking... just not good.
So does this mean we’re gonna send them some windmills?
Not surprising that he made a statement about this much faster than he did for the Eunuch Bomber. Barack Obama....President of the World.
That didn’t work out so well for them when we “supported Haiti” in ‘94.
Beat me to it.
Its going to be a total disaster in relief aid unless a military presence is sent first to protect the supplies being flown in.
In a couple of days there will be massive rioting, if just civilians are sent (with their banner waving gymnasts leading) its going to turn into a monumental debacle.
I am leaning into something that it may be due for a regime change in Haiti, and we should consider that.
Either that or support another 9 million on welfare.
“Obviously his priorities are w*a*y screwed up.”
Hmmmmm... wouldn’t have anything to do with Obama’s comfort level with the people involved in each event would it?
6 million new American immigrants?
“Either that or support another 9 million on welfare.”
In the view of the Obama administration, and the libtards in Amerika: What’s the problem? Are the printing presses broken? Are their no more wealthy to tax?
And not a single shout out before he spoke to the issue.
Anyone with a heart knows we’ve got to send them at least 3 or 4 trillion dollars in aid, right everyone?
Beat me to it also!
Haiti is a disaster on a good day!
“And to show I’m not such a bad guy, I fully support the president—even if many Haitians have very dark complexions and speak in strong Negro accents.”
Harry “Boss Hogg” Reid
Anyone else think that Obama could have just as easily been dedicating a new post office when he read his remarks this a.m.? Someone wrote the right words for him, but he is so utterly emotion-less that it is scary. He is truly like some alien species.
The president would like to announce the new Haiti Czar; Martha Coakley
Obama “pledges”... LMAO..... sure, he always keeps his word.
Anyone that believes a word coming out of Obama’s mouth.... has had sex with animals. Bwahahahaha
Maybe because one event caused exactly zero deaths, while the other caused hundreds, probably thousands, and possibly tens of thousands?
Sheesh. I hate Obama as much as any patriot but this is ridiculous. Find something else to criticize.
4ever, you are correct in this case, and I see that you often come across as a “voice of reason”. Now, I seriously ask, having looked over your posting history, are you a troll?
I’m worried this may be worse than the Tsunami.
If the reports of deaths in the hundreds of thousands are to be believed, there will not be a single family in Haiti that will be spared from losing at least one loved one in this quake.
sure is easy to spend someone else’s money.
So now Obama is bragging about what good the USA will do in helping to aid Hatti?
I thought the Kenyan said we were a selfish and devisive nation?
Boy do I feel dumb: Hatti = Haiti
U must be remembering the history down there 150+ years ago when certain 'elements' were slaughtered or driven out??
That all changed when he was elected don’t you know. Just ask Michelle. He is afterall, the One.
Some people can’t switch off the criticism button, even when 100,000 are dead. It’s sad.
I come across as a “voice of reason” and therefore am suspected of being a troll?
Not sure how to reply to that. I think it says more about you than about me.
I’ve been to Haiti;my mother and I went on a cruise back in ‘04 that had been diverted there because of the hurricanes. Needless to say I’ve never seen such poverty in my life.It truly was heartbreaking.
I understand 100% about the massive loss of life in Haiti. I’ve spent much time in prayer for her people. This is a tragedy beyond anything I’m able to wrap my mind around - especially seeing the pictures. I meant zero disrespect to the people who are affected by this. However, I honestly believe that Obama has his priorities messed up. who knows, maybe if this tragedy had happened during his vacation he would have ignored it too.
Thats not what I said actually, just from your posting history. Definitely not a run of the mill poster.
This I will take as a compliment.
