    Let me guess: you don't care about the $1.3 BILLION that the Republican debt ceiling stunt cost us, right?

    At any rate, Obama signed this bill ... that was presumably passed by Congress? So Congress ... including the Republican House ... is in on this cheap ploy to undermine Romney's field trip?

    did the congress schedule and set this up? Seems like the administration would establish their own calendar

    Israeli's aren't, American jews however? Well that's another story. They're liberals above all else. Obama would have to bomb Israel for some of these American Jews to change their vote.

    Erm, no -- Congress sets its own schedule.

    It would benefit the U.S. citizens more, if the government severed all foreign aid to countries including, the Israeli special interests groups like AIPAC, they are slimy leeches.

    I KNOW you are not accusing me of caring for Israel more than the United States.

    Such a claim would be a baseless lie, possibly motivated by anti-Semitism.

    he said the USA is not the first country of my concern.

    so I'd like to know why he thinks that, and which country IS.

    You said there's nothing wrong with foreign aid.

    That suggests that domestic citizens are obligated to put others' priorities before our own at some level.
