    to be very candid obama is a disgrace to africans !this is a man who charmed almost the whole world with his fluent oratory and style and most of all his socio political "vision" during the presidential campaigns in 2008.many people believed in him especially the down trodden all over the world.barely half way gone in his first mandate at the helm of the u s a many people are already praying for his defeat come the next presidentials !this is because obama has proven that he is not a man of his words.he says one thing and does its opposite !during his visit to ghana this man delivered a speech which many hopeful africans regarded as emancipatory.by encouraging the establishment of strong institutions instead of strong personnalities we applauded him.but for this human hybrid to turn around and support the ever hungry france in its crusade against the ivorian institutions and the person legally incarnating them really shocked many an observer !same thing goes to what is happening in libya.before these horrible episodes this guy during his campaign promised closing down Guantanamo,withdrawing u s troops from afghanistan and irak but what did we see afterwards ?...answer blowing in the wind !but what troubles me most is how a whole america could be so so so foolish to the extent of being toyed around with by france or better still led by nose by sarkozy the dwarf !!! this diplomatic weakness has been brought to the limelight by the obama administration which has succeded in alienating the us from the african populace.it is painful to be betrayed but yet 10 times worse when betrayed by the one you regard as closest to you !!! yeah obama can go ahead and empty his verbosity on democracy and all other universal rubbish but we africans have come to realise that he can no longer fool us.he is a tool in the hands of vicious blood sucking individuals and ultra capitalist establishments out to render the black continent poorer and more indebted than ever not forgetting the extinction of whole populations by wars sponsored by them.obama or whatever he undertakes in his diplomatic ventures concerning africa is a non event ! i can bet my last coin that if this guy undertakes any visit whatsoever on the african continent he will be pelted with rotten eggs !!! obama is a calamity to africa as well as his brother in crime sarkozy the dwarf !it is therefore a non event being invited by obama to wherever !apart from going to negotiate what to offer the u s a what else could come out of such white elephant trips ? gone are the days when an invitation by any western leader to any african ruler left the citizens very expectant !!!

    When Obama was elected president, I (now 77 years of age) wrote in my diarly that "I am glad to have lived to see this day'. I doubt that I would repeat that if he were to repeat his victory, primary because there does not seem to be any worthwhile Republican candidate who would make sense to our people.
