The United States said Monday it would donate 50,000 dollars in emergency aid to Italy after a powerful earthquake killed at least 100 people.

And one more thing, if the big zero isn’t going to do it right, don’t do it at all!
Mr. Obama doesn’t like Italians or Catholics, all that much!
$50,000 is an insult.
They could have sent an iPod, or maybe DVDs
Maybe the President could use one of his weekly Wednesday night parties to raise a little “dough” for the Italians in need, or just forego serving that expensive beef to the Congresscritters when they come to call and use the money saved to help the rescue effort. $50,000, it’s an insult to even offer that paltry a sum.
This must be wrong .....
FWIW - Italy has “refused” aid for know. Not needed, they are well prepared for emergencies. They will likely need and want help later when the initial search/rescue/relief actions are completed.
The President must be taking courses from the Joe Biden School of Charity and Compassion.
And we’re giving palastine HOW much????
Is this a delayed April Fools’ joke?
(Please, please, please, tell me this isn’t for real.)
The good news is, the Italian American community and other private interests will have kicked in ten times that much by the end of the week.
Italiani, avete amici americani. Ma Obama no e un de loro.
How much did they send for Katrina and Rita? Would be interesting to find out. If they didn’t send anything, I wouldn’t have any problem letting their own taxpayers handle it.
Man, you aren’t kiddin’
When I saw that, I wanted to hide my head in shame.
What’s that, maybe 2 hours of running Air Force One? He should have taken the crew over on Michelle’s broomstick.
And now as I glance over, I see his mug on television, once again. He just won’t leave us alone or shut up, will he? Now he is lecturing us on global warming.
Honest to goodness, I wish someone would pass him some bad fish.
O's scraping the change jar at the mint. It's all we have left after his spending!
Perhaps Italy did not offer enough troops for Afghanistan and this is his “gottcha” event.
That is a bad investment in my opinion.
The stupidity is making the public statement.
Either say nothing at all or offer something useful like emergency materials, blankets, clothes, tents, etc.
$50k is just insulting.
“O’s scraping the change jar at the mint”
This would be really funny if it weren’t true. Another day...Another disgrace.
Over a million dollars to find out why pigs are so stinky and $50k to a deadly earthquake to an ally.
I hope Europe is paying attention.
I hope all the Europe lovers are paying attention.
