Low Class Obama gives 50,000 for Earthquake-Hit Italy
US gives 50,000 dlrs for quake-hit Italy
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.
"We send our heartfelt condolences to the families of those killed in the earthquake. Our embassy in Rome will provide 50,000 (dollars) in emergency relief funding," State Department spokesman Robert Wood told reporters.
Italian authorities told the United States they did not need rescue teams, Wood said.
Obama earlier offered his condolences on a visit to Turkey and voiced hope that the United States could send rescuers.
The earthquake killed at least 100 people and injured 1,500 more as it reduced medieval buildings to rubble in the central town of L'Aquila.
Wood said there were no reports of US citizens among the dead or injured but that the US embassy in Rome was reaching out to Americans living in the region.
Wild Thing's comment........
$50,000 is an insult, the Obama administration continues to be an embarrassment to America.
Obama gave $900 Million to the Hamas.
"The United States plans to offer more than $900 million to help rebuild Gaza after Israel's invasion and to strengthen the Western-backed Palestinian Authority, U.S. officials said on Monday. The money, which needs U.S. congressional approval, will be distributed through U.N. and other bodies and not via the militant group Hamas, which rules Gaza, said one official."
The Palestinian Authority does not rule Gaza. Any rebuilding of Gaza will only strengthen Hamas. Secondly, any foreign organizations operating in Gaza either answer to Hamas or are Hamas run outright.

The Usurper is a work of art, no political gain to be had, so insult them with a token gesture. He'd rather pay tributes to Muzzies through buying their goodwill than through aiding our ally in their time of need. He has reverted United States policies to the pre 1805 Treaty with Tripoli bringing us under their dhimmitude.

50 grand? Didn't we give millions for the Indonesian tsunami? We must look real good to Italy right now. Can we afford it?

I didn't know this...Happy Birthday Wild Thing.
50 large, was that pocket change ? Was he carrying that around with him to flash it as if he's some kind of Big shot. The big shot that's going to get us all killed.

Happy Birthday Chrissie!!!
$50,000 dollars? That's not even one C-17 worth of supplies and equipment. Maybe he's going to send over a used bulldozer?

Mark has not read Obama's financial statement that he had to file. Obama income was four million dollars in the last two years, mostly from liberal publishing groups, unless you think that they thought "Dreams of My Father." was a masterpeice. With the four million Obama smanaged to save $65,000. Obama does not see anything wrong with taxing saving and investing because he would never save or invest.

Hope you get what you really really want!
zerO--so many mistakes in so little time. doesn't it seem like he's been around spouting his lies forevah? Well, I guess he has been campaigning (and still is) for five years.
Ugh. He's sickening. PS....Obummer--Tuh is not an acceptable replacement for the word To. Tuh = the new Uh.

And ACORN gets $8 Billion, of which $1.4 Billion of that comes from cutting the military in time of war,... while Italian earthquake relief gets $50,0000. Liberals care more about equality than people.

Happy Birthday Chrissie !! Wow, you must be getting near to 30. Thanks for giving us this good website and all the cute graphics honoring America and our troops.
If Obama can only save $65,000 out of $4m, he must really be toking and smaking.
Sorry for the slap Italy. He is not my president.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETIE, you are the best. We've been out of touch for a while due to me having pneumonia couple of weeks ago and our move out of beaner controlled LA to Laguna Woods in Orange County. It's absolutely gorgeous here and everyone speaks english. Lots of retired military too. Also, when you go to Home Depot, there are no illegals standing around pandering for day labor jobs. No habla assholes!

$50,000 what a joke they gave billions to GM because it was to big to fail and today GM says it is facing bankruptcy. WTF, good by dollars.

Bob A., thank you so much.
Yes can you believe it, a mere 50,000. It is so embarassing and then maddening when he gives so much more to his muzzie friends.
