Just thinking out loud: what if the GOP pushed an emergency private relief bill designed to make her a legal resident? Yes, that would set a bad precedent, and it would make them look opportunistic. But, it would also highlight the issue. Anyone else have thoughts on that?
Luckily, there’s no need for the McCain campaign to say a word about this - it will spread virally on its own...
Obama had an illegal aunt
Living off of government grants
Obama knows his aunt can’t
Live without those grants
But she’ll help him buy votes
She’ll help him buy votes
Send him three hundred bucks
To help him buy votes
But if on Election Day
Things don’t go his way
They’ll deport his old aunt
Whoops there goes Obama’s illegal aunt
Bad idea - they didn’t create the problem and shouldn’t step in to clear it up. The burden of rectifying this has to be on Obama. IF WE HAD A REAL MEDIA, THEY WOULD ASK HIM DIRECTLY WHAT HE KNOWS AND WHAT HE’S GONNA DO ABOUT IT.
tell me about it...
here’s a nice little article on ‘George’...”Hut, Sweet Hut”...
That sounds like Acorn speech. I read a thing where a bunch of Acorn people went to a hearing and they gave their testimonials and it sounded exactly like that.
Why was she ever here in the first place? Any hint on that?
I don’t think the public will hear about it.
My word! Shouldn’t this be in Breaking news?
The simple answer is no. The complex answer is that this is the kind of partisan rhetoric we don't need in Washington.
WTF are you talking about in post #98? I thought I could respond but cheetos would probably be a better ‘thang’.
What am I saying....if asked about this, Obama would only say he doesn’t know anything about it and he’s not responsible for her acts.
Rush was talking about this aunt of Obama’s today.
Can you imagine that a man who probably is worth millions of dollars can’t help her?
He wouldn’t want to spend his personal money helping her but the government sure can. That really shows who Obama is and I think it is sick.
I’m missing something because this is not a big deal for me when I see illegals all over the state of TX.
Better off dropping the subject before McCain offers to give her amnesty.
I just don’t understand why Biden didn’t have Obama vetted?
He did but I heard that it may have been due to legal issues with the lease, they had to remove Northwest Airlines logo. Course that could be his lying excuse. I did read that his seat on the plane is labeled “President”.
I think Airforce Zero is quite appropriate.
Absolutely. The McCain campaign cannot touch this. And if they ask, they must be sympathetic to the lady's plight.
And the attack could only be targeted at Obama - not the poor old lady.
As I posted moments ago, tomorrow is going to be interesting. Every right-of-center blog is going to be afire about this.
The question that must be asked is whether Obama was aware that his aunt's application for asylum was denied. How Obama answers will be crucial: if he doesn't lie convincingly, this will hang like an albatross around his neck until Tuesday night.
Disagree..the public will hear about it...Just probably too late to have an impact, not to say McCain can’t still win.
