All bow for the uncrowned King and Queen of the World no matter how poor, how tattered and how real you are
Obamas to flout wealth in poorest regions of Africa

With iconic hero Nelson Mandela in declining health, it’s time for President Barack Hussein Obama to go for the photo op of all time. America in Decline will spend $60-100 million for the Obama Act called “reinforcing U.S. commitment to forging strong relationships with emerging democracies in sub-Saharan Africa”.
Mercifully, Barack, Michelle and their two daughters won’t get to gad about in safari togs, pictures of which would have been sent out worldwide, as the safari they planned as part of the trip has been nixed over too many reporters asking why it was necessary.
Guess Obama and his publicity hound wife will, after all, be standing down on Independence Day 2013, as Canada Free Press (CFP) suggested earlier. At the end of June, globe-trotter Obama and his family will take an eight-day trip to Africa, making stops in Senegal, Tanzania, and South Africa, according to the Washington Post, which ‘somehow’ obtained an internal planning document for the travel itinerary.
(With references in their story about other expensive trips by other presidents, it seems the Post story is all but tooting the horn for the Obamas’ epic African trip.)
While millions of Americans have their privacy compromised by an overzealous National Security Agency run by the biggest Bully Administration of Modern Times, “hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania.”
Not since the heydays of Russia’s dachas has the world seen a regime as flagrantly lavish as the Barack one:
“A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of emergency.” (CBS News)
Look at us, folks, we’re America’s first family and there’s no end to the money we spend or the mainstream media-delivered braggadocio of the Obamas!
“Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bulletproof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts, giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace, so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.”
The dead opposite of what four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens got in Benghazi when they pleaded for their lives on Sept. 11, 2012, on the night Obama apparently slept away.
Were it not for the arrogance and largesse on public display, White House spokesman Ben Rhodes’ defense of the trip would have been downright laughable:
“We have not travelled to Africa in the same way that we’ve traveled to other regions in the world” and “Africa’s a critically important region of the world”.
Africa is a critically important region of the world, but Obama has done nothing for Africa or any other country including Kenya in the five long years he’s been coming on as ‘King of the World’.
“We have huge interests there..So for the United States to say, ‘We’re a world leader except in this continent’ doesn’t make any sense,” Rhodes told reporters. “From a foreign policy perspective, in some respects, people believe this trip is overdue. And, frankly, there will be a great bang for our buck for being in Africa, because when you travel to regions like Africa that don’t get a lot of presidential attention, you can have very long-standing and long-running impact from the visit.”
You can say that again, Mr. Rhodes, last time we checked Libya, Egypt are in the continent called Africa.
There you have it: All bow for the uncrowned King and Queen of the World no matter how poor, how tattered and how real you are.
Like the Marines who hold umbrellas over King Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan when it’s raining in the Rose Garden, you’re only so many props now.
