Obama arrogant and selfish? That’s crazy talk!
About 200 South Africans protesting President Obama’s visit to their country gathered Friday a few blocks away from the Pretoria hospital that’s treating Nelson Mandela, chanting about the White House’s “arrogant, selfish and oppressive” foreign policy.
“We had expectations of America’s first black president. Knowing Africa’s history, we expected more,” said Khomotso Makola, 19, Reuters reported. “He has come as a disappointment. I think Mandela would be disappointed and feel let down.”
The protesters — mostly student activists Communist Party members and union members — are particularly upset with Mr. Obama’s use of drones for overseas military strikes, Reuters reported.
