What a week we’ve had
Power outages due to storms moving across the state, a water main break (thank goodness I store 30 gallons of water for emergencies), 7 days of rain waterlogging everything (including my basement). It’s been a real challenge, to say the very least. According to the forecast we’ll have more thunderstorms until July 4th. Wish some of this was out West where it’s really needed.
The $100 million trip to Africa is going swimmingly for the WONS. MO dazzled and glowed according to the LSM. Here she is glowing….. according to the press her evening wear had “all the colors of an African sunset” incorporated in it. Must be the reason for keeping the background in the pics so dark, to show the “glow” that is MO.
Of course MO told her own story of deprivation as she held a roundtable talk with South African students. Compared to her present lifestyle, a middleclass upbringing might seem like deprivation to her. The more she tells that particular story, the more deprived her younger self becomes. Truth seems to be as difficult for MO as it is for BO. I am truly not sure what it is MO is wearing but, the effect is bizarre.
“So, like so many things with the president, all was not as it seemed. “There are literally no historians who believe the Slave House is what they’re claiming it to be, or that believe Goree was statistically significant in terms of the slave trade,” said Ralph Austen, a professor at the University of Chicago.”
Also while visiting SA BO made a point of making it all about him…as usual….
The U.S. leader describes Mandela as a ‘personal hero’, and has reminded audiences in Africa in recent days that his first political activism was to urge his U.S. college to divest itself of South Africa investments to protest against apartheid.”
BO and MO will be meeting up with George and Laura Bush in Tanzania. The Bush’s are in Africa doing an AIDS conference, continuing the work he started while Preezy. 45 million lives have been saved thanks to President Bush. How many lives has BO saved? How has he made the world a better place?
Correction; Bush is in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, at the same time as Obama for the African First Ladies Summit hosted by the George W. Bush Institute. His wife, Laura Bush, and first lady Michelle Obama will also both appear at the summit.
