    I was as surprised as anyone else; but, there she was sitting there in an overstuffed chair (stuffed, I might add with hair ripped out of old Bubba's conquests:biggrin1:) and she shook her head and admitted the U.S.A. has proven itself to be a monumental failure when it comes to aiding persons in need. She then said these immortal words, "Shame on us."


    It's always enjoyable watching Frontline.

    Can you provide more info? Was this at a news conference? Katrina was a monumental failure. Are we talking natural disasters?

    Frontline (a PBS program), regarding Haiti and Katrina.

    Sorry, I don't see her so much as taking responsibility as a country and genuinely wanting better, as much as taking pot shots at other administrations.

    **my take on her more so than the way it was handled**

    agreed and worded poorly by me :redface:... meant to reflect "others" meaning other than if SHE was President :rolleyes:

    I think your track record in terms of foreign aid and relief is pretty good. Took a while to get to the tsunami (i think), and get aid into Haiti. But would anyone else have done better?

    It's easy for ppl (EU) to sit back and point the finger.

    Hillary has been an excellent secretary of state and strong supporter of president Obama. To try to drive a wedge between the two of them is just another REPUGNANTCAN FANTASY !!!
