    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.
    Africa a power house of growth?...lol!

    Be sure and wake me up when that happens.

    Sub-Saharan Africa Economic Growth To Outpace Global Average, Must Tackle Poverty: World Bank

    BBC News - World Bank: Africa's economic growth to outpace average

    Economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa should significantly outpace the global average over the next three years, according to the World Bank.

    Higher commodities, increasing investment and a general pick-up in the world economy should all boost the continent's growth to more than 5%.

    But the World Bank added that African governments had to do more to ensure that this growth reduced poverty.

    Global GDP was forecast to grow by an average of 2.4% this year.

    Foreign direct investment is forecast to reach record levels in the coming years, hitting $54bn (35.3bn)a year by 2015, the Bank said.

    The report said strong economic growth in Africa had significantly reduced the extent of poverty in Africa over the past decade or so.

    The Bank's provisional figures showed that the proportion of Africans living on less than $1.25 a day fell from 58% to 48.5% between 1996 and 2010.

    "If properly harnessed to unleash their full potential, these trends hold the promise of more growth, much less poverty, and accelerating shared prosperity for African countries in the foreseeable future," said World Bank economist, Punam Chuhan-Pole.

    Your ignorance on almost every subject you talk about apdst, is not my concern.

    Educate yourself or just don't post.

    I have, several times I criticized what Obama is doing. Again, your hackery gets in the way of the truth.

    Again, care to point where exactly I was defending? Oh that's right, you can't.

    Re: Costly Obama family trip to Africa under fire amid sequester cuts

    Here is the real issue Obama lovers want to ignore. Obama put orders out to make sequester hurt so now we all contend with filthy restrooms at national parks as Obama heads off on safari with the wife and kids. He tries to ruin our vacations as he spends our money lavishly on his family.

    "The White House announced Tuesday that it is canceling tours of the president’s home for the foreseeable future as the sequester spending cuts begin to bite and the administration makes good on its warnings of painful decisions.

    Announcement of the decision — made in an email from the White House Visitors Office — came hours after The Washington Times reported on another administration email that seemed to show at least one agency has been instructed to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the internal email, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official Charles Brown said he asked if he could try to spread out the sequester cuts in his region to minimize the impact, and he said he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of.

    “We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be,” Mr. Brown, in the internal email, said his superiors told him.

    Sorry, my comment still stands, you and other righties make excuses for YOUR politicians.

    Your whole point was to not focus on Obama because you claimed some other people were worse while providing no solid numbers. You attempted to draw the discussion away from the subject.. in other words: You were deflecting.

    It never ceases to amaze me how much some people on the right live in their own world, and how easily confused they are when it comes to simple words and arguments. They are so intent on seeing the boogeyman behind every corner, they'll literally make up one just to have something to be scared of. It would actually make a heck of a psychology/sociology experiment.
