    Oh how I love the back and forth finger pointing, rhetoric-smearing, who cares what is going on, attitudes of our miserably failed political parties! These children need our help. Careful Republicans, irritate the omnipotent Obama and he'll spin it that it's Bush's fault. But that takes effort on Obama's behalf, so he'll take the easy road and just blame the Republicans. These children need our help. But of course the Republicans will find an alternative route to put the blame back on Obama. These children need our help. I'll bet that by the time these political crazy and wacky antics are done if they will even remember what they were blaming each other for? I will definitely agree with anyone who says that our own Americans need help too. No doubt. But I dont think any of us would turn a child away like this. Hopefully when the so-called lawmakers are finished blaming and mud slinging that they will actually do something positive. Oh, and did I forget to mention these children need our help.

    OK, anti-American commentators, ready for your marvelous hate responses. But just remember, there are children involved, so blast away with all your anti-Americanisms, but at least offer so kind of suggestion in the process, if you can. Maybe I'll get them out for you, so that your precious fingers don't get tired: Americans are lazy, stupid, ignorant, fat, and the #1 cause for ALL the problems in the world since the beginning of mankind. OK, that's done. Did I leave anything out? For some strange reason, America is the most sought after nation in the history of mankind. I'm totally confused.
