Africans Should NOT Support Barack Obama by igbo2011(m): 4:22am On Oct 10, 2012
Barack Obama is half Kenyan but he does NOT serve the interests of Africa. He funded the rebels who started the black genocide in Libya. He kills Somalians with drones even hough the are famine struck. He supported Joseph Kabila an illeginamate Presdient in the Congo. He helped France overhrow Laurent Gbagbo and insall a puppet Outtara. He sent "advisor" to search for Kony last year. He will bring hell to Africa under AFRICOM. Mi Romney is no beter. They will both be the same ol imperialists.

Just because Obama has African blood in him, doesn' mean he serves Africa's interests. This is just a warning.

@Igbo2011.

I was never comfortable with the messianic support Obama received from Africans because I believed it to be an emotional and gross simplification of the American Presidency. An American president is not so much a person. He is an institution that will always be compelled and 'harmonised', above everything else, to do what is best for the USA.

It is those , in the first place, who wanted to associate the American Presidency with colour and continental goodwill (i.e Obama's link with Africa) who will be disappointed with Obama.

Those who never regarded Obama's race and origin as pertinent will understand he is simply another individual who must continue the effort to keep America dominant. This "dominance" may come at the expense of others to include Africans and it is naive, given all that is known about the USA , for anyone to think the racial and continental origin of the man in the White House changes anything. This is not necessarily a bad thing and we Africans should learn from it. Allegiance and loyalty should , first and foremost, be to the land that has developed you. Obama is not Kenyan or African. He is, beyond the dreamy rhetoric, and for the purposes that matter, 100% American.

Well said, but that picture with the burnt corpses made me cringe. I hate seeing the pictures of disfigured, mangled or burnt human corpses.

As Gbawe has rightly said, a United States president is all about sticking to American policies that will keep America in power. I have noticed that there is really no difference between the republicans or democrats. Almost all american presidents that ever served their country always ended up going to war with one foreign country or another. When was the last time an american president served his 4 year term peacefully without throwing bombs into a far away country? Anyways, when it comes to america, I washed my hands long time ago. I have so lost respect for that country that even taking about america disgusts me. Make them carry go and I ain't voting either.

Quit worrying about my illustrious President. Whether or not anyone on the continent of Africa supports him, that will have no effect on the vote in the US. We will be just fine. Worry about Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan and help him solve the problems in Nigeria.angry

Re: Africans Should NOT Support Barack Obama by redsun(m): 9:27am On Oct 11, 2012
Why not?Obama is a soul rebel.He is trying to change mankind's age old traditions of winners takes all,where the rich,just like the republican presidentila candidate,derives pleasure from seeing the poor suffer,because that is what makes them excesscively rich,exploiting the down trodden.

In as much as Obama is an american that must abide to american policies as the torch bearer,he is an american with "twisted" thoughts,an american that believes in the freedom of all. An african american.

Of course, Americans should not vote in Obama simply because he has African blood. He should deserve it in order to be re-elected. Don't expect that him to twist the American policy in order to soothe Africa. Infcat he's tenure as president has brought more harm than good. I knew something like this would have happened, that's why i was shocked that Africans in Africa were jumping for joy when he won four years ago as if it would have any positive impact on their lives apart from the fact that it would increase their pride for the fact that a Kenyan is in the white house.

Mitt Romney and Obama are two sides of the same coin and if i have to pick i'll still go with Obama because he's a democrat and Romney is a republican and a war monger by default. So, his term will take us back to the Bush days.

If not for Obama incharge,several fatal wars would have broken out in various regions of the world by now.His way of handling things is giving people chance and privilages to use their minds and save themselves.Instead of imposing on them and heralding people that are not mentally ready for change to a catastrophic change.A change they dont understand.

People change when they are ready to change,that is when it hits them.

@Igbo2011, I dont even know where to start with you, how can people just come here and spew poo, your main reasons for attacking Obama from what you said was that he helped overthrow Laurent Gbagbo, whao, for the sake of posterity this is a man that lost an election, and still remain sitted despite loosing his re-election, a typical attitude of African leaders, secondly you said he sent advisors to search for KONY....I ask you one question did you know who 'KONY' is?...this is a man that has committed genocide, killing thousand of innocent people and using kids soldier, wanted by the ICJ and evading capture since the past decade....also you insinuating he's killing somalians with drones, who deserves Hell-fire missiles better than Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group that makes Somalia without a functioning government since 1992, forcing Sharia law, kidnapping and suicide bombing....lets be factual with our arguments, we are all child of history, and i cannot believe you can say all what you said.....no matter how longs it takes history will surely judge......

One thing you should know is that Mitt and Obama are reading scripts been given to them. The propaganda is to make sure America retains world power for now.

The script given to Obama is different to the script given to Mitt Romney (Didn't you guys followed the French election? Sarkozy and Hollande). The world affairs is been staged and bigger than what you both think of. I do not believe any poo.

Is Romney better than Obama? Who is Romney's Adviser? (George Bush) Romney or Obama will keep the propaganda working. Do not be fooled, i think this guy have been paid by Romney to bring down Obama

Re: Africans Should NOT Support Barack Obama by means(m): 10:34am On Oct 11, 2012
So you expected The President of the United States to go to Kenya and organise a 'thanksgiving service' as soon as the results were announced?
Now you accuse him of taking a lead in overthrowing the rogue Arab regimes while back home in the US his republican rivals accuse him of leading from behind.
Again, he has visited some African countries whom he sees as a models for democracy. He shuned Nigeria, yes. But that was a signal for the authorities to sit up.
By and large, like what one of the earlier bloggers said, the Amerian foreign policy remains the same irrespective of whether the president is a democrat or republican.
You are entitled to your opinion but we know how the world feels about both candidates.

Nice post Gbawe. If i may add, that is also the problem plaguing Nigeria. "The president is from my tribe/religion so i must support him". I was enraged when the former DG of the stock exchange organised a dinner fundraiser 4 years ago while she had not done anything to help the Nigerian struggle. Until we africans start thinking with our heads and not emotions(tribe/religion) we will always be disappointed like the op is in Obama.
