If you missed this story, Henrietta is the elderly black woman who told Obama at at Townhall meeting that she was homeless and needed help. Obama kissed her on the cheek and told her that his staff would get her in touch with the proper housing authorities.


Florida Republican State Representative Nick Thompson and his wife Chene Thompson offered her a house in La Belle, FL rent free for as long as she needs it.

This truly illustrates the difference in Democrat and Republican thinking. A Democrat tells the needy that the proper government authority will get back to them, and a Republican gives out of their own charity.

Yes, it's a sweeping generalization and there are many exceptions (good regular Democrats who give to charity), but when you look at the measely amount V.P. Al Gore gave to charity and the millions that V.P. Dick Cheney gave, you can see what I mean.

Also, good article on the subject. Conservatives give more.
