As federal agencies scramble to avert or delay sequester-tied furloughs, the Obama administration continues to spend millions of dollars on foreign aid to the Palestinians – and seek millions more, despite past efforts by Congress to freeze the money.

The State Department confirmed this month the administration has moved forward with $500 million in aid, and is trying to secure another $200 million from Congress. Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says the aid is important, because an “economically viable Palestinian Authority” would help regional peace and security.

Congress in 2011 voted to freeze part of the U.S. aid package to the Palestinians in response to their push for statehood before the U.N.

But President Obama last year signed a waiver removing those restrictions on national security grounds. He reportedly moved to unfreeze hundreds of millions of dollars in aid last month.

----------

President Barack Obama pledged $1 billion in economic assistance to Cairo following Mr. Mubarak's overthrow, including $450 million in budgetary support.

----------

The decision by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to waive the conditions mandated by Congress for releasing $1.3 billion of military aid to Egypt undermines efforts to support democracy in the country, according to Freedom House. Legislation signed by President Obama in December 2011 required the Secretary of State to certify that the Egyptian government is “supporting the transition to civilian government including holding free and fair elections; implementing policies to protect freedom of expression, association, and religion, and due process of law” before military aid could be released. At this time, these conditions have not been met, and a waiver should not have been granted.

As the title suggested, Obama would rather give millions to anybody than let workers retain their jobs.

Please be so kind as to site your source for this information.

As for Romney, he did not solicit contributions from government funds supplied by the taxpayers. That would have come later, had he won, with bailout money for contributors and supporters. You know, like GM and Solyndra and hollywood.

Obama is a mouthpiece for his handlers. His handelers are a bunch of hyperrich Jews with huge staffs to generate all the liberal documents that Obama's teleprompter messeges are derived.

When all is said and done Obama will be very happy living in Hawaii in a $20m house on a beach.

He would have been happy to be there right now but the damn fools reelected him.

Going forward I very much doubt Michelle would run for elected office. They both look forward to reaping the rewards of Barraks success in office.

The answer to the question is that Obama is looking out for:

1.) Himself
2.) Anyone who has a vote he can buy.
3.) Anyone who has a dime to contribute so he can buy votes.
