"Let that Negro go to Africa on his own dime."

I love how hypocrisy rules the day in this country.

So now we are supposed to care that the president is taking a trip oversees because we are still in a recession? I need a break!

Why is this even an issue now with this president? Rhetorical question. I know why.

I suppose we should just kick the Kenyan out of the people's house and rent his family a nice apartment in Northwest Washington. I am sure that would save us some money.

And, while we are at it, why don't we just get Allied Barton to provide him with around the clock security? I mean why pay a secret service agent when we can get a rent a cop for $9 an hour?

"Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer asked White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough Sunday morning if President Obama’s $60-100 million proposed trip to Africa was “worth it in a time of sequestration, when we’ve got people in various government agencies working four days a week, taking a twenty percent cut in pay?”

“The Washington Post also said that price tag was fully consistent with the cost we’ve paid for similar trips in the past,” McDonough said, before pointing out that Africa was a center of investment and economic growth. “It’s very important for the President of the United States, as the Commander in Chief, and as the representative of this government and the American people, to be able to travel to carry out our foreign policy.” [Source]

Bob Schieffer is now in the home stretch of life. I am sure that the fire department is on standby when he lights his birthday cake, so I am going to cut him some slack. Anyway, the poor guy is probably just saying out loud what folks in Middle America are all thinking.

Of course some of us are wondering why there are so many issues with this particular trip.

"As someone angry over government fraud and waste, I can understand the need for our elected leaders to tighten their financial belts when it some to spending our money. But I’m just a little confused that penny-pinching is becoming the overriding theme behind President Obama’s first long trip to sub-Saharan Africa later this month. Published reports about the trip have focused on the huge expenses attached to the trip that will include visits to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania.

Authorities say that hundreds of Secret Service agents will be sent to protect the President while in Africa, and a Navy aircraft carrier with a fully staffed medical center will be stationed off of the coast of visited nations in case of an emergency.

But the big time spending won’t stop there.

Fighter jets will provide 24-hour coverage over the President’s airspace and 14 limousines will be reportedly sent over from the United States to provide President Obama safe passage by roadway.....

But when you consider that the President has made trips to Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia while making only a brief stop in Ghana during his presidency, why shouldn’t he go to Africa for a substantial visit, especially when the continent has been coined in several business circles “the New Frontier.”

Countries like Brazil and China have increased their investment in African nations and the United States needs to maintain its influence in the region while promoting trade, democracy, and empowering the youth and women. And with a strong Muslim component in many African countries, the continent is an increasingly important partner in global anti-terrorism efforts.

And Obama isn’t the first president to see Africa’s strategic importance. Presidents Bush and Clinton both visited Africa, with Mrs. Bush going to Africa five times in support of President Bush’s agenda.

I don’t recall the cost of those trips ever being questioned.
But now, as the first president of African descent prepares for his first major visit to Africa, Obama critics are looking to pinch pennies?

The Washington Post report says the costs for the trip are not out of line with what is spent when other presidents travel abroad.

So what gives?" [Source]


What gives? Hmmm, let's see now; Americans don't like tall skinny people?

Field, "Bob Schieffer is now in the home stretch of life. I am sure that the fire department is on standby when he lights his birthday cake, so I am going to cut him some slack. Anyway, the poor guy is probably just saying out loud what folks in Middle America are all thinking."

Brother Field, I happen to love Bob Schieffer. I personally know that he is not a racist as you are trying to infer. He is an excellent reporter and he asked an appropriate question, considering the price tag of Obama's trip. I don't care if it is in line with the previous Presidents. These are hard times in America and we need to be a frugal as possible.

Bob and I are the same age so I don't appreciate your condescending words toward the elderly. You really ought to enroll in 'finess' school. You need it very badly.

You are such a racist that everywhere you look, you see your own projections of racism....and you are totally unconscious of it. That is terribly sad. No wonder you think Zimmerman is guilty.

BTW, you should read his father's book about Blacks perpetuating racism against themselves. I am sure you and PilotX and PC will see yourselves in that book....PATHETIC...

I am ashamed to have you folks in my race. I wish there was someway to kick some of you Negroes out of the race.

Blacks and Whites were getting along just fine, until some folks like you and Whitey showed up.

Anonymous said...

Amen, Anon. This country was in good shape until Obama took over. I mean, Negroes are out of jobs like no tomorrow. For the life of me I can't figure out why the good people of America voted for Obama. I suspect he hypnotized everybody.

Anonymous said...

Brotha Field, I really think Obama ought to 'split' the difference of that trip with his own money. It would show his willingness to save money. What do you think? I mean, it's chump change to him. He can afford it.

Anonymous said...

$60million to $100million? Lord have mercy. That Negro sure knows how to spend some money. Hell, with that kind of money I could afford to buy a couple of cakes made in PR by Desert. And, I'd have some change left over!

Driving through Barack's neighborhood with the wife last night and we wondered how many good white folks would freak out if they knew how close he lives to Brother Farakhaan. Ha!

Well, now that PilotX has pointed out how close Obama lives to Farakhaan, many Whites now know. Thank you, PilotX. I just love this blog. I find out so much stuff that could never be known, thanks to PilotX. You are the only one on FN who gives out such rich information about the President and other Blacks. I love you, keep up the good work.

You are a weird dude. Did you see the movie "Flight" starring Denzel Washington? You should see it because you sound like an alcoholic. So does Field, for that matter.

And poor Desert out on PR keeps baking and eating those cakes with pot in them. But, at least she happy.:)

"Let that Negro go to Africa on his own dime."

Dear Field Negro, I like the headline of your post. I assume you are being facetious but actually it would not be a bad idea. Obama's popularity has been dwindling quite swiftly. If he were to pay for the trip he would not only gain the support of white liberals, white Dems and white Independents but he would gain the love and support of the GOP.

Now that could be the 'crowning glory' of his Presidency since he has wanted their approval and support since the beginning of time, much like most AAs. Paying for that trip would be a very popular item among Republicans. I mean, how could they say anything against him on this matter?

Field, I urge you and your FN followers like PilotX, Desert, Granny and Alicia Banks to write the WH and ask Obama to show his sincerity in reducing the debt by making a symbolic gesture by paying for the trip.

This symbolism of love and compassion would also heal many Black and White hearts in America. This simple act could change America for the better. This noble thought sends spiritual chills up and down my spine.

Field, "Zimmerman's father wrote a book? What's the title?

Now see, this is what I'm talking about. This why I call you a trouble maker. Hell, it's not even mid-day and all ready you are making racist comments about Zimmerman's father. You are jealous like most bm who didn't get the fathering the wm got.

Blacks have a long way to go but we could start by respecting JUDGE Zimmerman. Judges are good fair and decent people who believe only in justice. You ought to know that, seeing how you are a lawyer.

BTW, how did you know 9:07 was Jesse Lee Peterson?

Frustrated Negro said...

Once again STEPHEN is here to Save the day...

Ohhh how you must enjoy defending O-Bomber from the evil Republicans...

I am in protest over the trip ,but not for the expenses , but for the policies that he is attempting to implement...

The stated goals and mission for AFRICOM should be hotly protested ,but that topic is off limits because the mean Racist Republicans have said something about the amount of money spent to do it.

For some Obamaholics... It doesnt matter what the policy is... It only matters if the other side is against it.

Republicans whine about money when it comes to anything but war. We are about to spend 300+ million in Syria but for them it's not enough.

These comments are a microcosm of how white people think in general. FN is just providing his opinion on particular subjects that surround people of color. It is so easy for you keyboard assassins to write all your opinions and loosely based facts on this website because you know in reality you would never confront the real man behind FN. There is a reason why he calls himself a Field Negro and they are not known for being diminutive. This is why he made a posting on why certain groups of people need guns and it's not for hunting for sport. It is because without a gun you could not defend yourselves against a man like him. Even though he poses no threat to you, just the idea that he could dominate over you has a lot of you intimidated without warrant. I cannot wait for you guys to die so the American people can focus on what's really important: Keeping America relevant in the future. I read these trite and pathetic comments and replies and it makes no sense why you hold such animosity toward a man who isn't sucking the teat of the government and articulate enough to express his views without threats of violence.

See ... This is what seperates me from you...

This is not about me "LIKING" Obama...

I DISLIKE the mans policies...

I've NEVER aligned myself with Republicans, but you cant see anything past the two corrupt parties...



As much as I harp on O-bomber...
I call out Republicans too..

Just not as much ; because they arent in control of the White House....and they really shouldnt have any bearing on the decision making of this President...

Its not personal ...its Policy.... and that is all that matters...

I dont care who does it Democrat or Republican... White or Black

If the policy stinks...

it STINKS...

at the very least defend your position with some substance....

So can you now answer the question I posed to you long ago, do you disapprove of Barack because he's not liberal enough for you?

My dear Frustrated Negro, I appreciate your comments. They are very insightful and mature. Clearly you are an adult. However, your questions are much too hard for Field or scrambled eggs PilotX. In fact, Liberal Progressive Black Obamaholics only "feel", they do not think.

I had hoped PC would have engaged you in a debate but he proved to too dumb also. I have lost all hope for these FN STEPHEN Negroes.

I am praying to God that he will remove that chemical imbalance in their brains but even God has limits when it comes to these Field Grade Negro folks. Lord have mercy.

This is the Frustration I deal with ....

Obamaphiles occupy 2 positions ONLY...

One one hand when Obama has a political success..

they SING his praises,and speak endlessly about how smart he is , and how high he will rank in the Presidential Pantheon...

On the other hand when he does something INDEFENSIBLE...

The Same Genius becomes weak , and hapless , and unable to do what he REALLY wanted to do ,because of those Mean old Racist Republicans...

Political success is defined by "Getting his way" it doesn't matter if what hes doing actually harms them or not..

Republican "UNHAPPINESS" is tantamount to their collective Success...

PilotX said...

"and I disagree with 90% of his agenda..."

So.....my question still stands.

"Obamaphiles occupy 2 positions ONLY..."

So what do you want politically and why is the prez the only politician you seem to disagree with? I have agendas and many politicians I disagree with but let's be real, the current occupier of the WH is closer to my agenda than ANY clown the GOP can offer. You seem to have frustration with blah people who like him because he's blah too. Well duh, over 200 years without a person of color in the WH of course many people of color will celebrate his accomplishments just as if he was Jewish many Jewish Americans would celebrate just as when the first Latino prez is ekected many Latino sistas and brothas will celebrate and that is just a fact. What that has to do with disagreeing with his agenda is pointless. Move along from that fact. Just as we can move on from the fact that many whites disagree with him because of his color. You seem obsessed with trying to keep folks from celebrating a brotha's accomplishments. This is nothing different than when Joe Louis won the heavyweight title. We celebrate our own and if you were really blah you would know that and not spend so much time running up your blood pressure about it.

PilotX said...

"We as a people have to MOVE away from the democratic party , and wield a political force that SPECIFICALLY addresses OUR Agenda..."

Or use the Democratic party to address our agenda as the tea baggers have done with the GOP. The dems are much better at addressing our agenda than the GOP will ever be in the foreseeable future. YOUR agenda is very apparent, to get blah folks to support the GOP. Nice try bro but we've seen this trick before.

Frustrated Negro, "We as a people have to MOVE away from the democratic party , and wield a political force that SPECIFICALLY addresses OUR Agenda..."

I agree, but fret not. Mr Field has announced in his most recent post that he will be joining someone he "respects" in the blogosphere for upstarting a "Solutions" Magazine...(hmmm. I wonder who that could be, JLP?)

"Your a damn fool and have yet to realize"

It's you're.


"Pilot dummy is who u are to me...."

YOU'RE welcomed. Ha! Maybe but I like to live in th ereal world where power is distributed through two major parties and you have to choose one or the other to further any agenda you may have. For example, I would have liked to have voted for the Green Party candidate for governor here in Illinois but had enough people chosen that path we would have had a Republican in the state house and no matter how bad our Dem gov is that would have been 10X worse. So we can debate the merits of attempting to form a seperate party or work within the current power structure. That is a very old debate but one worth having but after having seen how things work in Washington working with the legislative committee in my union I know a new party is not an option.But what do I know, I'm a dummy, ha!

AgentX said...

I see the thread is populated by the latest dumbasses as usual, Field. The stormfront band and the fake sister are here as well.

Africa is on the rise and it behooves our president to be there to make some deals. Getting more US business out there would create jobs and some stability there. If we don't take the initiative, China and other G8 nations certainly will.

100 million is a LOT of money. But it's not exactly a gigantic waste, like the amount of money spent by Bush on the Iraq war. I don't see the crazy posters upthread whining about that.
