Step it up Bush

The administration of President George W. Bush, which is currently spending roughly 30 million dollars a day on military operations in Iraq, has earmarked only 20 million dollars for Iraqi humanitarian needs in bilateral aid for all of 2007.

Now how can you say he's not compassionate? He's doing for Iraq just like he did for the victims of Katrina in NOLA.

Which is basically nothing. What an *sshole.

God Bless.
