    Obama won't make a move in relation to Israel because no matter what he does it'll screw with his campaign. He's safer not doing anything. He's good at explaining why he doesn't do stuff.

    When you increase aid to a foreign country...I'd hardly call that throwing them under the bus.

    We should allow them to make their own choices and not give as much aid as we do to them or any other foreign country while our debt continues to soar.

    They are big boys and girls, so why then do they need all this aid ?
    If anything, it should be cut by 10 to 20%, giving our budget a break..
    And, they had best be careful with this talk of military adventures..

    I don't disagree with you, I was just answering the question.

    Absolutely! No doubt about it.
    Do you mind me asking how, Mya? I'm curious.
