Mr. Boehner and Congressional Republicans, the answer is no. You have the power. Do you have the backbone?

I’d give them $2B—and then make them take back all of their “Palestinians”.

Don’t worry, using Obama’s math, he reduced the deficit by 1.8 Trillion Dollars because he could have given them 2 Trillion but didn’t.

A mere drop in the bucket ... Biden entourage spent well in excess of a half million for one night at a five star hotel in Paris. The previous night in London the tab was well over $400 thou ... but hey we can't do WH tours because of the nasty Republican induced sequester.

Jordan is the most pro-American country in middle-east.
I would give them money long before Egypt which is now run by Muslim Brotherhood leader, Morsi. King Abdallah of Jordan has acted in favor of US.

Thanks SMGFan. The Kenyan Muzzie SOB withheld aid from Mubarek, then after sequester came down, shipped $300 million to Egypt's Islamofascist regime.

How many school children can tour the White House with that money? If Obama is asking the Americans to choose between sick children and poor children, why is he giving this money away to others?

The Jordanian government hates the Palestinian refugees, they refuse to assimilate and the PLO tried to run its own mini-state in the 60s. King Hussein actually started slaughtering them until they agreed to move their headquarters to Lebanon to stop the reprisals for Black September.

Sure Abdullah married a Palestinian, but that doesn’t make him not loathe the unenviable position of having anywhere from 30-60% of the population a powder-keg ready to explode over Israel.

200 million to terrorists who hate us - all while bitching about the sequester at home.

Think about that while you’re job hunting. :)

Jordan was supposed to be Palestine, but instead they dumped their poorest citizens on Israel, much as Cuba and Mexico have dumped their criminals and their poor on us.

Yet Debbie WassupWithHerHair Schultz has aides on the brink of starvation. Or so she says.

And Americans without jobs truly ARE starving.

Good job, Obama. Keep crashing America’s economy.

You’re doing just what you intended and 1/2 the population is too stupid to see it.

I don't know about school children specifically, but at the current budget it's enough money to keep the White House open for the People for the next 54 years.

Half a million visitors pass through the White House each year, so that would be about 27 million visitors over the next 54 years.

Uncle Sugar is completely out of control. When will this nightmare end.

Mark Levin (not my favorite host)had a great point on all these secret deals, backroom/closed door sessions on issues NOT pertaining to national security...it is unconstitutional and robs the American citizen of public discourse and debate.

A gang of 8 or 10, deciding the direction of policy without open debate. Not the way the founding fathers intended the government to operate.

Wonder if Rush, Hannity or Levin picked up on Obama describing “Extremists”? The experts in the “Don’t let a crisis go to waste” pot, calling the kettle names.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I am very concerned about Syria becoming an enclave for extremism, because extremists thrive in chaos. They thrive in failed space. They thrive in power vacuums. They don’t have much to offer when it comes to actually building things, but they’re very good about exploiting situations that are no longer functioning. They fill that gap.

$200,000,000 tax dollars taken from US citizens and given, no strings attached, to Jordanian Muslims.

For once he is standing by his own words, to stand behind Muslims when push comes to shove.

Wouldn’t it be just a plain old riot if...

if Jordan, faced with a budget crunch, is now able to keep open to public tours and school groups the Presidential Palace in Amman. And, what a coincidink... their smaller towered airports {Aqaba (OJAM), Assab (OJHR), Azraq (OJ40), Dayanah (OJHF), Mafraq (OJMF) and the other airport in Amman, the Civil airport (OJAM)} will now be able to remain fully staffed and open for VFR/IFR operations?

Granted, but why do they need US tax-payer dollars? Why? To keep them pro-America? If so, that's called bribery, as we do with so many other countries. Yeah, I know, either us or Russia or China...blah, blah, blah.

I'm sick of the Middle East. I wish it would cease to exist, except for Israel. No, I'm not Jewish.
