        I have learned so much about the power over forces on the left. Different ideology but equally dismissive of the President’s power with mentality. As their champion they expect a leader to exclusively cater to their wishes and run over anyone who objects including the system we have in place which we call a democracy. If their leader does not repeat the mistakes of their nemesis then the leader must be overthrown and a new one put in that will do their bidding. I look at some of the folks on the left sites and their constantly fomenting of revolution and their unwillingness to even know about the progress that is being made while they continue their agit prop.

    Oh I just LOVE it! The Tanzanian president answers the Pool immediately! ‘The people of Tanzania LOVE you.’ He couldn’t have said it more plainly.

    • July 1, 2013 at 10:18 am

      Yes, he also said at the beginning of the presser that this is the biggest crowd that Tanzania has had to welcome any visiting official.

        O yeah, I got it (I am not a good transcriber)! I was truly pleased with the way the Tanzania’s President settled so many of the haters’ “concerns”.

    GM, TOD. It is finished. There’s new rejoicing in heaven this morning. My 95.5 year old mother passed peacefully this morning shortly after 9:00.

    Getting on the road now.

        okay had to wait for him to talk again and take a longer look.. he does indeed look a bit like Cuba Gooding Jr. Good eye anniebella 🙂

          Thank you sherijr. All the Tanzania President had to do for us to be sure was yell to President Obama ” give me the money, give me the money”.

  18. July 1, 2013 at 10:27 am

    The Tanzanian President maintains a good sense of humor – even as he discusses a very serious topic of US aid in Africa 🙂

    Oh yuke, Jonathan Karl.

  21. July 1, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Jon Karl is asking a question about Morsi in Egypt, trying to insinuate (however slyly) that PBO is “supporting” Morsi. PBO responds that the US support to Egypt has never been around a particular individual, but around a process.

    • 71 vcprezofan2
      July 1, 2013 at 10:38 am

      But, Karl did at least keep his questions to the continent, on a topic that both presidents should have an opinion. I’m giving him some credit.

        • 73 CEB
          July 1, 2013 at 11:03 am

          I liked with PBO pointed out that Karl’s numbers were “imprecise” and that we do not make decisions about what to do based on a head count of the number of people in a protest. Shorter PBO: “You are a lying fool.”

            These fools will not get it through their thick skulls that POB has been given a brilliant mind from his birth and he surely does not take up time in his presidency to waste it on fools. I love the manner in which POB put the sorry arse press people in their place.

            They have not respect for the president and none for the ‘real art and hard work of real journalism. HZ

      Sherijr how can they when they are so ill-informed I am sure many of them in the WHPC thought Africa was a single country and I doubt they could find Tanzania on a map to begin with. The WHPC areas of interest is trivial matters not those that inform and educate, being cynics is what they are good at so I am not surprise. If it has nothing to do with made up scandals they become loss children and simple can’t find their ways to ask any questions that have substance

    I am a bit ticked though that everybody thinks the United States should be doing something for everybody.

    • July 1, 2013 at 10:43 am

      Yes, I think PBO is trying to get Africa out of that mindset that they cannot do for themselves.

      • 79 vcprezofan2
        July 1, 2013 at 10:48 am

        Hmmhm. He has so mentioned the Africa to Africa connection needing attention several times. Good for him. He really shows a deep-seated care and intent for Africa to succeed long term. IOW, IMO PBO’s determined to set up an ‘infrastructure’ for continued success for Africa. I cheekily add – what an international PBO legacy THAT would be!

    • 80 CEB
      July 1, 2013 at 11:00 am

      I thought the same thing when the two Tanzanian reporters, especially the second one, practically made demands; even for the Congo.
      Was pleased the responses of both presidents. When countries get their acts together we will help; not dictate. They complain about imperialism, then they want us to come in and solve all of their problems.

      • 81 vcprezofan2
        July 1, 2013 at 11:07 am

        An old mindset that I very much think President O is in the process of helping to turn around.

        I’m crossing my fingers that by the time PBO’s term is up the African continent will be even more firmly successful than it is currently, and that the whole world will be aware of that. IOW, more people, including the MSM, will be well aware that partnership is a better strategy for the continent. I also hope that PBO being so vocal on this now will curb those other entities who are flocking to Africa with only a personal profit motif in mind.

    [Well, well! Gents, read on — Watermelon! Ummm, who laughing now?! 🙂 ]:

    […..] It turns out, watermelon may be a natural Viagra, says a researcher. That’s because the popular summer fruit is richer than experts believed in an amino acid called citrulline, which relaxes and dilates blood vessels much like Viagra and other drugs meant to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).

    Until recently, many scientists thought most of the citrulline was in the watermelon rind. But now, experts have discovered that there is more citrulline in the edible part than previously believed.

    […..] The amino acid citrulline is converted into the amino acid arginine. This is a precursor for nitric oxide, and the nitric oxide, a blood vessel relaxer that enhances circulation to all your vital parts.

    LOL! I get it now, Putin, like most bullies talks a lot of shit. But when they are forced to either shit or get off the pot, they usually get off the pot. Since when does Putin make announcements proclaiming Russian Security Agents aren’t in the business of getting any sort of information they can when it comes to America? Whatever usefulness Snowden has provided to Russia has run its course and now Russia wants nothing to do with Snowden. All ready Ecuador has said that Snowden isn’t worth the trouble or the headache. With all of his options being zero and none I suspect by the end of the week Snowden will be begging to come back to America.

      [Even WSJ headline: “Snowden’s Options for Refuge Narrow”]:

      As Edward Snowden entered his second week of limbo in Moscow’s airport on Sunday, his decision to go to Russia is looking riskier than it first appeared, and may have left him in a worse situation than if he had stayed in Hong Kong. […]

      [I think WFJ is wrong. Hong Kong didn’t want him either. They pushed that problem to Russia lickety-spit! His options have always been zero.]


    • July 1, 2013 at 12:00 pm

      Don I wouldn’t be surprised if Russian intelligence didn’t tell Putin after the first interrogation of Snowden that, “He’s not telling us anything we didn’t already know.”

      It’s almost a thing of beauty to watch PBO and his team shut off all the avenues then slowly put the squeeze on this bum.

    I’ll bet that we will have more than one on-line source when PBO and Dubya meet. All stations will cover it and it will be featured prominently on the evening news. Any takers?
