    Didn't notice that 38 Countries just inside the African Continent. Nor the 4 that put people to death huh? I'll bet you were thinking that the Rest of the Muslims in the ME and around the World were all tolerant of gay Rights too.

    I guess that part about Sall saying we are a Muslim country and we CERTAINTLY CANT HAVE IT HERE. Kinda shot Right past your conception.....huh? That for him it is not acceptable anywhere in the world.

    Let me take a guess.....you thought he was joking Right? Did you catch the message that Leader was saying as a Muslim? Rhetorical question.....no need to answer.

Hell, this snowden thing is actually worse than watergate by a lot, and you are worried about him and gays in africa? I do not even get what you are complaining about here. Are we supposed to be bothered because he didn't drone the guy for not decriminalizing homosexuality? IS he supposed to be the secret dictator of africa and they are ignoring him? So africa is homophobic, it is not our country and obama cannot do much about that. hell, he cannot even get americans to work together for much other than spying and killing muslims. he doesn't have to hold his head in shame over DOMA anymore with the rest of the world so give him a break.
    Well news is news. Whether those on the left like, accept, or not like it. So they really do need to get over their man being picked on. Whining about it wont help!

    I find your response far more ridiculous.

    couldn't they simply be misguided?

    I think our policy on how we treat drug addicts pretty stupid. Is everyone that wants to continue to put heroine users in jail scared or have contempt for the users?
    In answer to your question, I'd say, yeah, they are scared and have contempt. That's exactly how everyone that want to continue to jail junkies feels.

    So from all the info I gather from the report, Obama was mostly interested to talk about gays.
    The report was strictly about the press conference following an hour long meeting with the Senegalese President so we don't know what was discussed in private.

    Pick on him, but use the meaningful stuff will you. Or at least go for the relevant Obama loves fudgepackers angle. Are you really bothered Obama did not force that guy to change his country's laws to accept gays?

    None of that goes against anything that I said. You're just rambling on about how parts of the world are very back wards. I never sad that it wasn't.

    Whatever it was, it wasn't as important to Obama as the homosexuals in Senegal. Since that is what he was most keen to present and discuss. Not infancy mortality. Not poor healthcare. Not foreign aid. Not anything like that.

    And he is the head of state of a country that doesn't have full gay rights to begin with. See the problem?

    Are you seriously so desperate for anything that you can't stand with Obama on the issue of whether or not homosexuality should be criminalized or not? Jesus. Not only that but you're OK with a Muslim Head of State implementing part of their religious law, ie Sharia Law, you're OK with that so long as it's critical of Obama?

    I think you should take a hard look in the mirror and think for a moment about what's really important to you, selling out every sense of decency and integrity for a chance to launch a lame attack at Obama? Or you know having some standards?
    Dude get this fact straight in your head.....the piece isn't about me or really what I think about Obama.

    Its about Obama telling those in the Muslim world to accept what he says as the Word itself. Specifically those in Africa. Here he says to treat Gays equally and you with those on the left haven't even talked about how Women are treated. Let alone Gays.

    Whats up with the Hypocrisy thing on treat all Equally! Did ya want to rush over the Rights of Women and Children.....so you can run Right to those that live the Gay Lifestyle. Ready to throw all the women and Children under the Bus.....just as long as those Gays get those Rights, huh?

    Where is your anger about that? Whats up with the lefts hypocrisy with their mouths over such Rights of ALL others and not some specific interest group that Obama can play to here in the US.

    Exactly why insurance should be taken out of the workplace. Health isn't an option, so insurance shouldn't have to be either. But that's a tangent so I won't elaborate. Just read the last line and felt the need to point out that you've hit a nail on the head you may not have intended to.
