President Who Makes Excuses for Everything Tells African Leaders to ‘Stop Making Excuses’


In an incredible display of chutzpah, President Obama actually scolded African leaders and told them to stop “making excuses” for the lagging economy.

From the Washington Examiner:

President Obama, whose first political protest as a college student was aimed at the Western oppressors of African nations, told a summit of young African leaders Monday to stop “making excuses” for their continent’s lagging economic development.

Mr. Obama’s about-face came during a town-hall gathering of 500 young African leaders in Washington sponsored by the White House. A young man from Kenya who addressed the president as “your Excellency” asked Mr. Obama when the U.S. would lead other industrialized nations in forgiving African nations of their international debts.

…On Monday, Mr. Obama said African leaders should take the attitude of, “We didn’t get a good deal then, but let’s make sure we’re not making excuses for going forward.

It almost sounds like he’s quoting himself on making excuses. As a reminder, below is a video of all the times he made an excuse for his poor performance as president running up to the 2012 election.

A comprehensive video of his excuses would probably take a good part of your day, and you need that time to work and pay the taxes for Obama’s handout of $38 million to Africa.
