I don't know about Tanzania, but here in California, you'd be a laughing stock if you wore something like this:Images of President Bush make up the fabric of dresses for Tanzanian women as they await Bush's arrival at Julius Nyerere Airport in Dar Es Salaam February 16, 2008.

President George W. Bush observes a moment of silence during a wreath-laying ceremony at a memorial for victims of the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombing in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, February 17, 2008. Bush is joined by first lady Laura Bush (L), Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (3rd L) and family members of the victims.

Well, isn't this nice:

If you look closely at that one sign about America being the Master of Hypocrisy you can see that another message is underneath.

I wonder if they just keep those signs in a warehouse somewhere and just paint a new name on it depending on which countries leader is visiting?

It's so typical of Reuters to highlight the handful of protesters among a sea of well-wishers.

In the slideshow I saw, Reuters disproportionately highlighted the negative.

I think it's because they just can't stand the thought of Bush being greeted warmly in Africa.

The entire world hates America because of Bush, remember?
