Default Obama and Africa

Re: the excellent, continued help extended to Africa during George’s tenure in the White House; do you think that Obama should shelve the programme, or continue and risk being accused of nepotism by the Chorus of the Ill-Informed?
Do you think Obama’s background will be an influence on the way he will deal with matters concerning Africa?

It was hardly excellent...just a drop in the ocean. We are expecting Obama to be much more supportive.

no point offering more support until African countries sort themsleves out. Will just end up in the Swiss Bank Accounts of Mugabe et al.

That - in my opinion - is true of most of the aid extended to African - and also many other - countries).

In the case of the Dubya administration's help to Africa, it is for a specific cause administered through specific channels. OK the channels are religion-based, but - at least - the aid is getting through.

I challenge Shadya's pooh-poohing of George's contribution and ask her to name ANY single administration in the world that has done more for the cause espoused.
