Default US funding for Hati has passed that of Katrina.

Intersting to say the least. This is a good article from England of all places.

Obama will be seen as the savior and people will recall how Bush was the reason Katrina victims didn't get aid, fast or enough.

But hey, Haiti has plenty of aid(s)...

It is very sad indeed, but the world can only do so much.

I know it is the right thing to do is help them because they are human,but there is only so much the U.S.A should do.

Offer the help of medical treatment, and cleaning up.

All this money that is being raised, will it get to the average Joe of Haiti?

I am sure it won't.

It seem's that no matter what is being done, someone is going to complain.

There is someone that over saw Katrina and they are saying Obama didnt act quick enough with the military, and then you have Rush Saying we are sending to much and its for Obama's Political Gain.

Help these people but there has to be a limit as to what the United State can do, there are other country's that can step up and do just as much as the USA

Just curious, where does it say, in the article, anything about what has or is going to be spent on Haiti in comparison to New Orleans?

Not sure what you are saying here. Are you saying Obama had something to do with Katrina?

Limbaugh is simply doing what Limbaugh does. He stirs the pot with his BS opinion. Listening to him would have you believe that Obama caused the Earthquake for political gain. Here is one for Rush, if Obama dd nothing (or too little in Rush's opinion) what do you think Rush would have talked about on his show? Probably how much of a failure Obama would have been for not acting quickly or aggressively enough. IMO, there is nothing that Obama can do, about anything, that will not go unpunished on Rush's radio show.
