The breakneck pace of this trip is enough to make you dizzy. Or maybe Im just getting a little seasick.
Look at how weve been spinning just since we arrived in South Africa:
President Barack Obama on Sunday will announce a new initiative to double access to electric power in sub-Saharan Africa, part of his effort to build on the legacy of equality and opportunity forged by his personal hero, Nelson Mandela.
It is my understanding that in order to build on the legacy of the equality and opportunity of Nelsons he intends to spread the wealth around by giving them the power that hes eliminating back at home by regulating coal fired electrical generation plants out of existence.
Something else Big Guy has in common with his personal hero; love of the grape,
and a penchant for hiding his writings. Or at least he hid them up to the point that he decided to write his first autobiography, Dreams From My Father, in order to launch his very successful political career. Which, when you think about it, was a much smarter career path than spending 18 years in the hoosegow.
Still, even when he did choose to write for public purposes, BO, in solidarity with his hero, still kept some things hidden by creating composite characters in order to protect the identities of his girlfriends.
Following the tour, Obama will deliver what the White House has billed as the signature speech of his weeklong trip at the University of Cape Town, an address that will be infused with memories of Mandela.
As well as a few self-referential examples of how he was inspired by his personal hero to do great things himself as a community organizer.
Nelson fights against apartheid, Bo rounds up votes for Democratic drain commissioner.
It is my understanding that in addition to our coal, Big Guy intends to ship to Africa all the tasty fatty, salty, sugary treats now banned from school vending programs by Lady M and Ag Secretary Vilsack.
Obama has visited Robben Island before as a U.S. senator. But since being elected as the first black American president, Obama has drawn inevitable comparisons to Mandela, making Sunday's visit particularly poignant.
How Mandela spent his youth. How Barry spent his youth.
Unlike being a citizen of the United States, which, as we all know, remains to this day a racist country. Not withstanding the fact that we have an African King and Queen:
For the sake of clarity, this is our African Queen.
Be sure to watch Keeping Up With the Obamas as we wrap up season 5! Running daily on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and Ms.NBC.

How about posting it all here instead of pimping for hits?
Why are the Obama's going to South Africa ?
Cover the top half of this photo and who do you see ?
I always enjoy a cup of coffee and reading Michelle Obama Mirror on Sunday
Thanks for posting and the link!
(some of us appreciate it)
Thank you tangchung.
Cover the bottom half and who do you see?
How appropriate for 0bama to hang out at Robbin’ Island.
NOBO2012 gives us better news coverage than the NYT, and a bigger excerpt, and you’re complaining?
Looks like our first black president to me.
I really hate gagging on a Sunday. Reminds me of my drinking days.
What possible reason exists for that person to excerpt his own material?
If you had clicked on his link, you’d see that that WAS the entire article.
He should thank you for the hits he got because of you
How sweet is this the Obamas are going to meet the Bush’s tomorrow in some African country. Wouldn’t it be nice if they all stayed there? They’ve done enough to F up this country, now they screw up Africa.
I agree, NOBO2012 postings are informative and better than NYT.
Some people have nothing to do but complain, driving conservatives away.
It's a stretch, and the hair is different, but maybe the eyes have a similar look.
The main reason I post this photo (of Mandela) is for those who believe that Barry is Stanley Ann's biological kid. (especially since no one reports her ever being pregnant, and there are no photos of her pregnant)
They say Barry has the Dunham 'chin'. So does Mandela, so what does that prove ?
Still, this HUGELY expensive trip to South Africa, and the monetary assistance he's giving them, does make one wonder.
my bad....he did snip out a bit.
Now I’m going to have to click on his link again
I must say MOTUS is one blog that
reads and looks better on the actual page,
and since it is a high quality blog it is
well worth the opened, additional tab to go
and read it there.
The entirety of the article is usually
posted on FR - if you’ve not actually visited
the blog you are missing out.
I daresay fans of MOTUS agree wholeheartedly.
And I daresay I ain’t the first to try to
You do a great job on the Blog Pimp Po-Po Patrol
(among other valuable and entertaining efforts)
slapping down the truly weasely. But truly, Sir,
THIS blog IS worthy.
