    You mentioned Obama’s penchant for calling people. Setting politics aside, how about G W Bush’s well-documented visits to injured soldiers, or his continuing work on the AIDS crisis in Africa?

    For rockers, how about Sammy Hagar’s penchant for collecting food kitchen donations for every city he plays in?

    If you are listing philanthropists, you missed one of the greatest philanthropists of the Twentienth Century. His birth name was Muzyad Yakhoob which was later Anglicized to Amos Jacobs. You know him better as Danny Thomas.

    When I saw Obama’s name, I realized you don’t know the difference between a bad ass and a bully.

      I second that. And there is a difference between lending a hand and abusing the power of the office you hold. Notice it had to be prefaced by “Regardless of your political standing.” As if that validates or OK’s what follows. Kinda like “I don’t mean to be a jerk but…”

      You mean the racist, ungrateful leader of South Africa? He totally forgot what aid the American people gave to him once he got in power, and has made racist comments about them several times.

            what are you talking about? The whites of South Africa completely dominated the blacks with their laws of Apartheid. Nelson Mendella was imprisoned for 36 years for trying to speak against apartheid and since he was such a great powerful speaker he got the influence of the government to actually end one of the worst forms of segregation in the world. Also the blacks were there first read up on history

              You’d want to read up on history yourself! Not whatever pamphlets and leaflets you get your knowledge from.

              Mandella wasnt imprisoned for speaking against the government…. He was imprisoned for the bombings, assassinations and armed revolt his ANC party led against the government.

              The government of the day did not hand power over because of Mandellas wonderfull speaking, they done it because of political pressure and sanctions brought upon them by the rest of the world.

              And as for your comment about the blacks were there first…..
              Yeah well the whites were first in Europe…. Shall we now tell all the blacks living in Europe (who are so desperate to get here) to get out?

    Paul Newman should be listed. Also, this was painful to read. Maybe don’t try so hard to be witty and funny…
