Obama Spending $Millions to Import Palestinians
Memorandum for the Secretary of State
By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1962 (the "Act"), as amended (22 U.S.C. 2601), I hereby determine, pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Act, that it is important to the national interest to furnish assistance under the Act in an amount not to exceed $20.3 million from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund for the purpose of meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs, including by contributions to international, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations and payment of administrative expenses of Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State, related to humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.
If Palestinians would elect Hamas, they should be a highly reliable Democrat constituency — especially once they get their mouths on the teat of the recently supercharged welfare state. Why should Israelis have all the thrill and excitement of watching suicide bombers go off on crowded streets?
On a tip from Randy M.

Niiiiiiice. An automatic injection into the democrat voting base. Just what the country needs. This is why I call people who voted for Obama "traitors."

I voted for Obama in hopes that all this would happen. We need to have the ugliness of liberalism in our faces to see why flirting with it is like recreational drug use, boning your sister, and gambling using your house as collateral: guaranteed bad bad bad idea.
It's been years since Carter and the Reagan revolt. In the meantime, liberalism has laid the groundwork for its reappearance by stealth methods. The loopy loony left as a result of so few seeing them up close has gotten taken seriously. People accord their politics no less respect than those of conservatives and actually listen to their guff comparing themselves to MLK and Lincoln while comparing conservatives to Nazis without choking on howls of laughter.
When they get taken seriously that way but are not in control, they agitate those in control into doing their bidding for them. Bush co-opted liberal deficit spending on social items to some extent and look what happened. Who got blamed for spending money we did not have on stupid things? Bush did, not the people who advocated it being done, then turned around and didn't take the blame.
The liberals have to be unabashedly obviously 100% in-your-face in charge for the public mainstream to see them as they are. Obama got one thing right and that's that sunlight is a good disinfectant. It's time for liberalism to be put in the spotlight by itself where it can be seen for what it is. No more stealth advancement by getting others to do it and take the blame. Time for them to take the blame just like with Carter.
Maybe this time we can keep the revulsion against their idiocy alive a bit longer.

Bush contributed to Hamas being in Gaza in the first place. In a rare declassified statement, President Bush said "America and all free nations strongly support the efforts of the Palestinian people to create lasting democratic institutions... The United States stands ready to help the Palestinian people realize their aspirations." I guess he meant even when those institutions shoot rockets at our allies. Look it up on usinfo.stat.gov.

1. That's old news
2. Clinton did the same.
3. Who here supports the bombardment of Isreal?
4. Why doesn't Hamas use the money for INFRASTRUCTURE instead of BOMBS?
5. Bush is out of office, so now OBAMA is responsible for the money going to Hamas.

We are getting what we deserve. We have too many of our own people that really need help and they should come first. The US is the laughing stock of the entire world and now the same people that have killed people that do not agree with them will get a free ride, food, and housing why? Obama needs to see a doctor.
