    You're fighting the good fight in this thread, but you have to understand the answer to your question here is the latter...it's just purely partisan hackery.

    IOW, it's ok because Bush did it?

    Not sure on the road, but they have a portable septic system and reroute his toilets to it.

    Don't blame us for your gullibility and your blind allegiance to a corrupt ideology.

    The POINT IS, ( I thought this would have been obvious ) a trip like this in the face of a extended recession, when WH tours have been canceled looks bad.

    It makes Obama look like the hypocrite liar he is.

    This is how diplomacy works ladies and gents.

    It's just right wingers ****ting the bed again whenever possible.

    These trips do have value to the USA.

    Fact of the matter is, Africa is the next potential powerhouse for massive growth, you can either be a part of it and benefit from that growth by opening African Markets to American Companies and goods.

    Or you can continue to drown in your own ignorance by pretending the rest of the world doesn't matter.
