Here are a couple of links to the real Nelson Mandella:
And now, on his $100,000,000.00 holiday to Africa, Obama compares a devoted communist to our Founding Father, Revolutionary War hero, and First President, George Washington! My digestive system suddenly found itself in reverse. Definitely leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
PRETORIA, South Africa , June 29, 2013: Although President Obama will not get a chance to see Nelson Mandela on his trip to South Africa, he is using his historic visit to pay tribute to the man he calls a hero to the world and will meet today with the Mandela family.
Obama's two-day visit to South Africa -- and his entire week-long visit to the continent -- has been dominated by the Mandela vigil, giving Obama to speak about what Mandela means to Africa and the rest of the world.
"And what Nelson Mandela also stood for is that the well-being of the country is more important than the interests of any one person," Obama continued. "George Washington is admired because after two terms he said enough, I'm going back to being a citizen. There were no term limits, but he said I'm a citizen. I served my time. And it's time for the next person, because that's what democracy is about. And Mandela similarly was able to recognize that, despite how revered he was, that part of this transition process was greater than one person."
