If This Is How Obama Treats His Family . . .

At the Democratic National Convention Barack Obama, framed by the pillars of Olympus, declared, "It's that fundamental belief — I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper — that makes this country work."

And we wondered why this millionaire didn't help his brother, George Obama, who is living in poverty in Kenya making less than a dollar a month (and why it took a British Newspaper to uncover the story since the U.S. Media spared no expense in trying to find dirt on Sarah Palin).

At the Saddleback Forum Barack Obama, frame by a coffee mug and a pastor who isn't anti-Semitic, said, “We still don’t abide by that basic precept of Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.”

And we wondered why he didn't help the Aunt he'd lovingly referred to as 'Auntie Zeituni' who is living in rundown public housing in Boston (and why it took a British Newspaper to uncover the story since the U.S. Media spared no expense in sending reporters to Vietnam in hopes of finding a hole in John McCain's torture story).

Ah, and now we learn that Barack Obama's Auntie Zeituni has been living in the country illegally for four years, even contributing to her nephew's presidential campaign during that time. This poor woman deserves some sympathy for all she has gone through and for the high-profile negative focus she will now receive, but I hope that she doesn't expect sympathy from the Chosen One. For Barack Obama, Blood is not thicker than the ballot. And remember, he's the same guy who, for the sake of his campaign, threw his own grandmother under the bus.

So my advice to you, Auntie Zeituni, forget Barack Obama's hollow words of wonder and, when you get back to Kenya, look up George Obama. He's only living on $1 a month but he appears to be the more generous brother. Oh, and stay clear of Barack's other half-brother Abongo "Roy" Obama; he's a Luo activist and a militant Muslim. Dangerous stuff, that.

    Excellent post.

    Strangely, I hadn't heard about Barack's militant brother until I read your post.

    Isn't the media doing such a great job? (puke)

    Yes, the media has done a great job in . . . OK, I can't even say it as a joke. :-)
