    Hes not ordering.  What he's saying is that the publicly stated reason the tours stopped is because of cost.  It was to save the $74,000 so he is offering to pay the $74k himself if that's the only reason the tour isnt happening.

    Why am I suddenly having to defend some douche from FOX News?  I couldn't give one-half of one rat's ass about this guy but I dont understand why some non-elected person offering to pay for this for some kids from Iowa is the most dickish move we've ever seen some right-wing hack make.

    Seems a simple minor side-show distraction kind of thing.. how'd did we get to "How dare this scumbag offer his own money to pay for something that hes thinks is good and involves children!!!!"?

      what priority list the White House tours are on nor do I know what money bucket the cash comes from. What I am pretty sure is it is someone's job to make that list and to apportion that money. I am also pretty sure that job doesn't fall to a Fox News Host. If said host wants to give $74,000.00 to the White House that is fine, but I don't think that means he gets to say it goes for White House Tours.

      This makes about as much sense as Mike Huckabee on mescaline. - Prodigal 2-6-2008
