    Three square meals, a cot and a steady husband. Sounds like homosexuals would volunteer for prison.

    Now. I know, Obama supports gay marriage. Whoopy-doo. He is the head of state, he isn't representing himself as a personal figure when he goes and talks to other nations, he represents the USA. Does the USA have a federal gay marriage act? No. Do the majority if US states allow gay marriage? No. Only 13/50 have legalized gay marriage.

    So for all intent and purposes, while being gay isn't illegal, he has no authority to go and lecture other countries on gay rights.

    I think Obama should have stayed at home if he really wanted to fix this issue and put his diplomatic talents to solving the problems in his own backyard. And who goes to talk about homosexuals in Senegal? They have an infant mortality rate of 77/1000 people and malaria is going through the roof. They have BIG problems in that tiny country the least of which is gay right. Big problems like crap healthcare. So homosexuals may just not live to explore their married life because they'll die of Malaria and AIDS.

    Here's an idea. Why didn't Obama go to Senegal and discuss healthcare with them? Obamacare is the staple of his presidency, isn't it? Why didn't he go there to discuss the new agreements regarding democratic progress and work out a program in how foreign aid is given to them as they accomplish certain objectives in the line of democracy and healthcare.

    Seriously. This is just insane. It's freaking insane.
    How do you know that the President didn't discuss Senegal's health problems?

    Swing and another miss Redress.....I luv it that the News actually Reported the incident as is and didn't give it that sugar coating you like to hear. Wherein they Pump up your man to make him seem to be more that what he actually is. But do I like Obama and know exactly what he is. Like him, Not even in the least...... Know him, 10 times more and better than anything you know about him or even could possibly know about him.

    Get back to me when ya quit slurping up all Obama has to say as the Gospel. Rather than being told what to believe in.

    Now did you want to try for strike two?

    It didn't make it in the news coverage. So either what he discussed about healthcare was fruitless or he didn't discuss it at all. And it also has no mention of foreign aid or anything of the sorts.

    So from all the info I gather from the report, Obama was mostly interested to talk about gays.

    Seems like Obama is getting bitch slapped wherever he goes. It's becoming an international sport and may be in the next Olympics.

    This isn't why he went to Africa. The timing just happened to coincide with the rulings.

    Well the source material doesn't seem to speak of him doing anything else of national significance. Oh wait, here's something.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/28/wo...rica-tour.html

    President Obama’s journey to Africa will reach back into earlier times when Africa struggled against slavery and white domination, represented in planned visits to the island shrines of Gorée Island near Dakar, considered by some a symbol of the slave trade
    Questioned about African discrimination against gays, in the wake of Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision — gays are seen as persecuted in Senegal as elsewhere on the continent — Mr. Obama responded that states should practice equal treatment for all.
    So even the NYtimes has managed to highlight 2 aspects.
    Obama is going to Africa to discuss about slavery and white domination... and gays. A worthwhile enterprise I find for 60-100mil $. <sarcasm>
