    Hundreds protest against Obama's visit to South Africa

    JOHANNESBURG: Hundreds of protesters are marching to the US Embassy in South Africa's capital in a peaceful protest against a visit by President Barack Obama.

    The rally in Pretoria on Friday was organized by trade unionists and members of the South African Communist Party. The demonstrators oppose US policy on Cuba, Afghanistan, global warming and other issues.

    Protesters are carrying signs that read: "No, You Can't Obama," a message inspired by the " Yes, We Can" campaign slogan adopted by the president during his first presidential campaign. :becky:

    Obama and his family were expected to arrive in South Africa later Friday as part of their African tour.

    Protesters also plan a rally Saturday at the University of Johannesburg's Soweto campus, where Obama will address students and receive an honorary law degree.

    The commies have become intellectually bankrupt. They were peddling their nonsense in the past too, but it was done more intellectually, now it's just nonsense.

    The Republicans took over the North Carolina legislature last November. The Democrats are fit to be tied. Evry Monday they demonstrate at the Capitol and get themselves arrested. They call this street theater "Moral Mondays." It is to laugh.

    Some people don't want to let go of their beliefs. Anyway, Obama has plenty to worry about based on real scandals in his administration.
