Editor's Note: Many of you wrote in about President Obama’s trip to Ghana and praised Anderson’s reporting. Thanks were heard for bringing up the slavery still going on in Haiti. There were a few complaints that all the promos about the President’s visit to Ghana made it sound like it was a full show and not spread out over the week in small snippets. What are your thoughts? Let us know and tune in tonight at 10 p.m. ET.


I would like to know why President Obama did not visit his family in Kenya before going to Ghana? Also has he offered to help his brother and family in Kenya?

Great show tonight! Enjoyed the interview with President Obama in Ghana. You seem so relaxed.

I am happy to hear you actually speak about Haiti. I have volunteered in Haiti and see no media surrounding their need for support worldwide. They have no oil, no natural resources, no hope. The poorest country of any of the OECD countries, yet we continue to look the other way.

Mr. Cooper great coverage of President Obama in Ghana. I am deeply moved with what I saw and my heart is troubled. Is there anything we can do to help change their atmosphere? To find that slavery still afflicts our people is really heart tearing.

I watched you interview with the president and all he was concerned about was what was happening in Africa and you asked him how much does his family history affects his concern on Africa and its people. Well I don't mean to be disrespectful to the people of Africa or the President but he was elected president of the United States and his job is to fix the problems here in the United States not another country. He seems to be using his power to take more concern of other countries rather than our country. I am a family man I want to know what is in the future for my children not any other countries children. Thanks.

This show was absolutely pathetic! This has been advertised for weeks as a major show, yet it barely covered Obama in Africa. I guess that's American Media for you! What was the point of the show? He AC traveled all the way to Ghana to ask the President about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell? Then Haiti? Did I miss something here? Current Mode: Let Down. Thanks CNN..In all CNN's coverage was the same as FOX News in my book!

Michael's kids – IT WOULD BE SO CRUEL TO GIVE THE KIDS TO ROWE, after we see her nasty behavior, and knowing how gentle Michael was with them, we suppose. Those children are gentle, quiet, and compared with the altercation that Rowe had with the reporter, clip shown on tv, it would be a nasty contrast with their previous environment. So, let's hope the judge has seen that clip of her on tv too.

    Does anyone care about Elder Abuse? I know it's not a popular subject, but my sister-in-law Mattie Combs, who is 73, has been diagnosed with alzheimers. My brother Thomas Combs, who worked hard all his life, starting as a bicycle delivery person at 14, started his own business, then worked for Ford Motor Company for more than 20 years, left more than $200,000.00 for Mattie's welfare! A young man, who preys on the elder, talked Mattie into becoming her caregiver! He did a poor job at best, but his aim was to take her money! To date his taken more than $160,000.00!
    Does anyone care that this is not the first time for Marc Spivey's elder abuse? I spoke with a Detective in Indianapolis, Indiana where the crime was commited and, he explained that he will likely not do much or any time for these crimes!
    Does anyone care about ELDER ABUSE !
