Rare Visit Underscores Tangles
in Obama’s Ties to Africa

New York Times, by Michael D. Shear*

Posted By:pineledger, 6/27/2013 5:04:12 AM

Dakar, Senegal--As a freshman senator from Illinois, Barack Obama told a packed auditorium in Kenya’s capital, “I want you all to know that as your ally, your friend and your brother, I will be there in every way I can.” But he will not be there. (Snip)Despite decades of American investment to promote stability in the volatile region of East Africa, Kenya just elected a president indicted by the International Criminal Court, accused of bankrolling death squads driven by ethnic rivalry. It was the outcome that Washington had desperately tried to avoid,

Sounds familiar.

The only meaningful dialog happening on this trip are between Michelle and the Chef. It is the vaca season at the White House.

Instead of Michelle, Barack would have preferred taking his boy friend Reggie along. What a waste of 100 million bucks.

African countries, like Middle Eastern countries, have been in a state of war with each other for thousands of years. No clean, articulate, half-white, silver-tongued lying devil is going to change a thing. The people who think he can are even more delusional. At least obama has an excuse, he has a narcissistic god-complex and is as crazy as a loon. As for Michelle, she gets a view from five star hotels and the opportunity to eat fried bugs or whatever.

I´m sure obama´s cronies will move him quickly to South Africa in the hopes of campaigning over the grave of Nelson Mandella (sp?).

He´s so embarrassing!!

OMG -- dear Lord -- give US some peace now that he´s out of the country and the supremes have stopped screaming at each other. Remember my husband´s words. He said this when the women came to the court. Men are logical and linear and women are emooooootional. No good can come from their (the women) emotional outbursts. He was spot on!!

NOBODY has milked the American people more via Presidential perks!!!!!!! And Obama is totally shameless. It doesn´t matter if people are working three jobs to make ends meet. He is arrogant but also knows Brian Williams will cover for him! Bet he comes back and goes right to Martha´s Vineyard for vacation. In two planes, most probably, 3 hours apart.

This royal romp through the third world Sub-Saharan Africa has not a whit of American interest to it. It’s nothing more than a lavish campaign trip on Hussein’s road to the UN SecGen job, all courtesy of the taxpayer.

And what’s all the more galling about that, is that if he is successful, he will be n all the better position to leverage the third world tin pot dictators at the UN to impugn the US.

What a nothing burger. If anyone can glean anything of importance from this article it escapes me. I still maintain that the only purpose for this trip was to visit with Mandela. Of course the NYT will never go there. As a matter of fact they ignore it completely. What they leave us with is "Mr. Obama, the first American president with personal roots in this continent, remains immensely popular in Africa, and any visit from him has deep symbolism and historic meaning." Typical NYT blather.

It is all screwed up like a bad movie.
Disgusting, starting from the top. Nobama is over there recruiting for his next job at the UN, giving gifts we don´t know about making promises we don´t know about, wasting more money than we know about.
The good news is (1)that uncovering the IRS targeting the Tea Party, has given the Tea Party monster favorable publicity as to their size and stability (unkonwn til now).
(2) We´ve all gotten to see the IRS parties and dollar waste, and these government droids on TV acting like gangsters taking the fifth. That will go down in history.
(3) ABOLISH THE IRS is common language now.
(4) We see a Tea Party Traitor, Rubio, double talking his way through a 1,000 page bill he won´t even explain. Marco the turn coat obfuscator, making his bones dishonoring America, just like Hillary. (5)
Edward Snowden broke open a massive truth, whether you like it or not, and he is withour question Thoreau´s elegant example
of CIVIL DISOBEDENCE (6) step by painful step the treachery of Hillary (and Obama) is coming forth on the Benghazi murders (7)
The armed Feinstein gun destroyers aimed only at the lawful middle class, are getting nowhere with their anti gun drivel
(8) News actor, the censoring Diane Sawyer
is still holding up the leaks in the dam with her unreal fingers, supported by all the other overpaid, rich, news actors, paid to KEEP QUIET and allow crime to run rampant
in Washington. Temprary end of rant.

#1, your comment rings true--since "vaca" means cow in Spanish, which is how I read it at first glance.

Obama can´t be seen shaking hands with a president indicted by the International Criminal Court would be a bad image? What about his help for Odinga (a cousin?), the radical muslim who staged a coup, causing the death of thousands, and was ultimately named prime minister? That wasn´t a bad image?

Pardon a second post, but #18 caused a light to go on in my head when I read his/her comment: wonder if he´ll sneak in an unreported trip to the hut where he was born?

It suddenly hit me that instead of visiting Barry´s roots, maybe Moochelle was the one who wanted to visit the land of her ancestors. The Mooche hasn´t tried to twist her ancestry into some story few believe. Her ancestors probably really were slaves - sorry I haven´t been interested enough to look up her story to check.

If it is a presidential trip, no matter what the reason, we pay for it without question, but if it is a Moochelle trip it would raise some eyebrows, even though she could probably give a rip.

Not seen "Dreams of his real Father" I presume?

obama II is named after a man hired to be his biological father on paper.

His step father gave him Muslim ties in his formative first years and dog to try.

His Yankee hating mother gave him socialism and disdain for America and American hegemony. She sent him to Hawaii to be mentored by his real father, Frank Marshall Davis, Hawaiian communist and, get this, community organizer.

I hate the corrupt partisan media who orchestrated this diminishing of American and rise of Russia as new hegemoniacal power in cahoots with China.

obama hasn´t done well for America but he has for the dreams of his real father.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said.

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Americans who are buying insurance plans over online exchanges, under what is known as Obamacare, will have limited access to some of the nation’s leading hospitals, including two world-renowned cancer centres. Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.
