"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
What I would like to see is for Obama to quit interfering with Our oil production in the Gulf, and for all potential oil fields in Alaska and off the coast of California.
It would be nice to see some realistic progress with alternatives that the Environmentally Ill have been protesting, like the Solar project in East County San Diego, ot the one near Nellis AFB in NV, or the wind projects off the north east coast.
A little more incentive to install Solar of homes wouldn't hurt either.
Unfortunately most of the ideas that are put out there are not realistic too costly or the Environmentally Ill protest them to same some rare fly, when the truth is they don't progress because it would put them out of business, and those at the top of all of these groups make a great deal of money and do next to nothing for it.
Saudi's need to stay on our good side right now and hope to hell the Royal Family survives the revolutions sweeping North Africa, and the Middle East.

$25 billion per Year
The OECD calculated that (in 2008) the US spent about $25 billion in foreign aid per year, although this is a very small percentage of the 2009 estimated federal government income of $2.7 trillion.
Any more questions ??
You didn't answer the ones he posed.
ie "Trillions?" "Over what period of time?" "Humanitarian?", Lend Lease?", etc.
Posting one year's aid is NOT an answer to his many questions, Especially the "Trillions" claim.
Yet, a pompous finish to a very Incomplete/Inadequate answer.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
