    Yes, i know what it says in the Constitution but you are suggesting that Congress is somehow responsibility for Obama's self serving and extremely expensive trip to Africa. Its best to face the facts and put the responsibility where it belongs.

    Then where did Obama get the money for this trip?
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Democrats took control of Congress in 2007. Bush hasn't been President in more than 4 years. Get with the present. You're living in the past.
    As I said, single visioned people just can't see past their red or blue colored blinders.

    You're just tossing out ad hominems and projecting now. I also find it laughable that you accuse others of being "single visioned" while trotting out worn out race cards and blaming Bush.

    Anyways good luck with that. Clearly you're a waste of everyone's time

    I would say a trip to future economic powers is not a waste of money but is crucial.

    NO President ever went on a diplomatic trip before.... Never in the history of the United States! Clearly Jefferson didn't have this in mind (when he was in France)....

    Good for him. Do you think he wouldn't have flown in airplane assuming one was available to him?

    What the libbies fail to realize is that the rabble rouser from the criminal enterprise ACORN, indicted in ~ 13+ states, and the blatant racist who has a twenty year tenure in the Cathedral of Hate run by the Black Racist Wackjob Jeremiah "Godamn America" Wright, the adoring piece of feces and bosom buddy of the Worst anti caucasian and anti semite in American History, Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, and the same phony recently known by the majority of Americans for the orchestration of abhorrently atrocious Benghazi, and IRS incidents....does not deserve any consideration in saving his worthless, nay DISASTROUS, existence.
