Do you feel Africans have the right to mad at Obama and his wife for not taking care of Africa?

I just read an article about how some Africans were mad at Obama and his wife for not spending more time in/aiding Africa. Do you believe this is fair? Do you believe that Africa is asking too much or should the Obamas help?

I believe B personally, he has his own country to run and we have too many problems in the U.S. as is to help other countries out of their own crises.

  • The United States is not Africa's legal guardian. They can take care of themselves.

    Nobody likes it when you ask for the "Homie hook-up".

    They act as if the fact that the Obamas are black obligates them to help Africa.

  • Sorry, why does America owe Africa anything? The States have enough problems of their own without playing daddy to a continent thousands of miles away.

  • That's dumb. He's has enough on his plate here, why would he bother with an entirely different continent?

    • I know, Africa shouldn't even be mad. We are helping out more than we need to, to being with.

  • He is the president of America, not any other country. If he wants to run for president in Kenya or something after his end of term in service date then he can fix the problems over there, but right now we're the ones paying him to do a job here.

  • Last time I checked Americas debt was over 13 trillion dollars.. Obama is the president of the US not some country in Africa. He needs to get our sh*t together before he can really help anyone else.

  • Although I don't like Obama politically, Africa is not our burden. I think we have helped other countries enough and we should be trying to fix our own problems.

  • If he fixes stuff in his homeland, that makes him a good guy. He's not responsible of the whole world.
