    Obama was not so great…did not support unions, did not prosecute bankers after the Recession, gave us RomneyCare instead of real healthcare, drone wars, did not end the wars, etc., etc., etc. Let’s not rewrite History here.

    The difference between African leaders and Western leaders is that African leaders feel entitled and not engaging. I am a Ghanaian and that is what is with from our president to the least politician here in Ghana. They are very wasteful with money. That is why they are always in the West begging for scraps. Just check the current shame going on. Entitled people and just a disappointment to Mother Ghana 🇬🇭.

    Humans have progressed only by standing on the shoulders of giants, I just hope we never run out of giants like Obama, a strong foundation of principle and ideas to build our future on top of.
