Bull fight: Obama trounces Romney

2012-11-03 22:55

Khayega - If the US presidential election were to be determined by a bull fight in Kenya then President Barack Obama would defeat Mitt Romney.

On Saturday villagers from western Kenyan town of Khayega held a bull fighting contest between, a 410kg black bull they named Obama and a black and white 460kg bull they named Mitt Romney.

Both are cattle breeds indigenous to Kenya.

Despite being lesser in size Obama was the overwhelming favourite having won six of his last fights and he did not disappoint.

After close to half an-hour the bulls were separated and Obama was declared winner.

Most Kenyans consider Obama, the son of a white mother from Kansas and a black father from Kenya, as one of their own.

    @punungwe - I suggest you read the analysis of Obama vs Romney on NewsView - http://newsview.co.za/us-elections-2012/ and get an indication of why many Americans are not impressed with Obama - it isn't about his race so much as it is about his performance in office relative to his promises.

      Obama got into office by promising to:\r\nDrive down the deficit - oops\r\nCreate jobs - ummmm\r\nBring the troops home - eish\r\nImprove civil liberties (gays, women, illegals, etc) on a Federal level - maybe next term?\r\n\r\nBut yeah, punungwe is right, its all about his race...

    for some reason known only to themselves the Kenyans adore Obama - not that he's had any particular beneficial effect upon their lives. As they stagger uncertainly towards their next election 2 of the main presidential contenders are wanted by the I.C.C for crimes against humanity. But, such is the Kenyan mindset that no one seems to care. You in SA should understand - this complete indifference is what will become your political inheritance. So much is made of Obama's "blackness"; his father was a Jaluo from Western Kenya - apparently an alcoholic, philandering, abusive man who abandoned his wife & kids. Yet, this "heritage" is celebrated here in Kenya. Nothing is heard of the (very white) woman who bore Obama and raised him despite myriad difficulties. Such is African Racism.

    for economic reasons I hope Mitt wins... for stability I hope Obama wins - but there is no reason for animal abuse for this stupid election cause both candidates are useless. I would be happy to see Clinton back
