Speaking on WOR's The Steve Malzberg Show, Huckabee -- a Fox News host and potential presidential candidate -- said that "one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American ... his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British are a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather."
Gingrich says that D'Souza has made a "stunning insight" into Obama's behavior -- the "most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama."
"What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?" Gingrich asks. "That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior."

Wow, Obama got something right for a change.
Africa was much better off under colonialism, as was the Caribbean. This is undeniable, even many African leaders have acknowledged that independence came far too soon. Nearly 50 years after independence 61% of Jamaicans say they would have been better off had they remained a British colony.

What you say definately makes sense. My question for you though- is Obama right or wrong? I am under the impression that although colonialism in Africa "ended" almost 50 years ago, the effects linger. Is it naive to just say "get over it"? That would seem like something TPTB would say.
