White House: President Obama, Michelle Obama to travel to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania from June 26-July 3

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will visit Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania June 26-July 3, the White House announced Monday. The Obama spent one emotionally charged day in Ghana in July 2009-- his only other visit to sub-Saharan Africa since taking office.

"The president will reinforce the importance that the United States places on our deep and growing ties with countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including through expanding economic growth, investment, and trade; strengthening democratic institutions; and investing in the next generation of African leaders," spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

I'm glad he's finally getting away for a little R&R. Why not, it's been every bit of 3 weeks since the last vacation!

yeah 509, presidents should never engage the international community. It's not like competitors like China have been making large investments in key natural resources available in these countries. We should just skip this game because our economy only goes as far as the coast line.

What`s wrong with you people?

Its Spring! It`s family reunion time!
He`ll give them a check and then dance around the fire with them while the secret service fends off the rebel militants.
Michelle will try on the newest
animal skins help scald the day`s kills and prepare the feast for her squeeze and inlaws and outlaws.
The traditional AMERAFRICANS on a PAID TOUR. Just remember we voted for this and you can`t get it out of them! Bob Aswell
