    Jacob Zuma snubs Michelle Obama during First Lady's South Africa visit - Telegraph

    I find this appalling. The USA gives South Africa over a half billion $$ a year in foreign aid, and their President can't find a few moments to meet with the first lady? He sends his head of prisons and his third wife?? WTF? I do not care what your politics are, this is an insult to our country.

    What say you?

    Since Obama has raised American respect around the world to new heights, I am sure Zuma felt unworthy to be in the presence of the greatness of his family.

    Probably cause of the Libyan thing, Zuma has a good relationship with Gaddafi and hes probably pissed that the US is bombing the shit out of Libya.

    Maybe Zuma's just not a lots-of-junk-in-the-trunk kind of guy?

    Obviously, Obama needs to take several months touring Africa, beginning with SA.

    He needs to be photographed bowing and holding hands and participating in ridiculous rituals with every nation's leader so he can have embarrassing pics printed in the world-wide press which will then ignore any of his positive contributions:

    It's either an insuilt to our country, or a justifiable statement about an obvious POS.

    Obama cut there AIDS money for one thing and is not as popular there as the Bushes. And it is only Mechelle, its not like she is an important figure in America. The prison minister thing is creepy though. Wonder if he offered her a tour.
