Garbage. Obama does not even have the respect to attend the funeral of the most important leader in the Americas. Yet three US Presidents attended the 2005 funeral of the Pope.
You still need your Voting Rights Act and Obama is unwilling or unable to end the systematic disenfranchisement of millions of Americans.

He was serving an elected fixed term of office. Your allegations are propaganda. It is the USA that disenfranchises the poor and the downtrodden.
"Parties, candidates and other organizations put up about $7 billion in the 2012 presidential election in the US. It was the first presidential vote following the Supreme Court ruling that granted corporations freedom of political speech. And like every American presidential election before it, it set the record for most expensive campaign in history. Political parties â€“ mostly, but not only, the Democrats and Republicans â€“ ended up spending $2 billion, while political committees accounted for $2.1 billion of the spending. Candidate campaigns spent about $3.2 billion. Federal Election Commission (FEC) chairwoman Ellen Weintraub revealed the number at an agency meeting Thursday."
