Tsunami Relief - America Stingy?
I think it has finally become obvious to even the most optimistic of Conservatives - there really is NOTHING we (this administration) can do right.
At first, the IMMEDIATE 15 million in initial funding caused an outcry from foreigner and liberal (American?) alike -- America is stingy and should at least spend more on disaster relief than on the Presidential inauguration.
Then, it was 35 million as we began to identify where the money was needed most -- this was STILL not enough, even though we had promised to increase our contribution a great deal in the days to come.
At 350 million, it was determined that we are STILL stingy because the Japanese had put up 500 million, making us (God forbid) the SECOND highest contributor in the world.
Now, although we have promised much more funding and have sent BILLIONS of dollars in military equipment and troop assistance, we are still the bad guy who is ONLY DOING IT FOR SHOW.
Is it just me, or are we facing a no-win situation with the world at large and our blatantly ANTI-AMERICAN liberals here at home? Ever think we should just cut the world off for a few years (completely) and THEN see what happens? Who would be there for them then?
Just a thought.
