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.
‘”Terminally word challenged” Mayor Menino DOES happen to be in the Hillary camp.
I think it became readily obvious after BHO's European Vacation and non-visit to the wounded US service people in lieu of brandenburg basketball, that the suffering of others was viewed by Obama exclusively in the context of leveraging political advantage. You may be suffering as the result of great sacrifices to others, but if you can't do anything for Obama, you can go to hell. On the flip side, you can be suffering as the result of your own damn stupidity, but if it plays in the media, BHO will be there for ya, man! (at least 'til the cameras start packing up).
He's lower than amphibian shit, and he sits perched on top of the media that props him up.
Let’s all put it on email and send it around. Then the 40 or 50 people we send it to can send it to 40 or 50 more who will send it onward to still more . . .
Oh goodie!!! Sure is better than those sappy “have a nice day now send this on to eight of your best friend” emails!
Might be interesting to post over on DU [grin].
Did she register and vote?
She is alleged to have donated to his campaign.
It’s no wonder she wanted to wait until after the election to say anything.
So in addition to being here illegally she has now committed another crime...
In fact, now that the Obama campaign “officially knows” that she made an illegal contribution, they are obliged by Federal Election Law to RETURN her money... How ironic that that would be the first (and last)check she gets from Obama...
For the record — Obama is awful and he deserves everything that happens to him...
Granny on the other hand seems like a very nice old lady caught up in a big ugly mess...
I feel sorry for her, will pray for her and hope this works out well for her in the end. Honestly, I'd elect her POTUS over her good-for-nothing nephew any day and twice on Sunday.
We’re on the same page. I think this could make a fantastic movie. Now that my imagination has ignited, I’m laughing out loud at the possibilities, too. Oh, this is too funny. This is the sort of thing Borat could do so well.
“Im missing something because this is not a big deal for me when I see illegals all over the state of TX”
The difference is you don’t know for sure whom the illegals are...you can speculate and you aren’t running
None can be said for Bambi
It’s too late at night to get them to respond, so the Obama camp will have their response (if asked) well designed by the morning light.
Compasionate idea — but at this juncture, would be percieved as too political. Might backfire.
The creation of a Legal Defense Fund for her by someone capable of getting publicity for it would be helpful... and then you could talk about all of the dollars raised to help her and point out that “we are still waiting for a check from Barack and Michelle Obama but they haven’t been in touch.”
Oh, come on, this is hilarious. Don’t you see how funny it is that the guy who imagines himself as President of the United States has a bunch of dubious relatives crawling out from under rocks and embarrassing him? Think of the comedic possibilities of the guy who lives on $1 a week in Africa at a State Dinner, seated next to some white movie star who supported Obama.
The directive for higher-up approval of deportations might be really impressive...IF any illegals were ever deported from this country. I think poor little Elian Gonzalez was the last deportation, and that had to be approved way higher than a regional director.
It reinforces in the undecided’s minds that Obama is African with a Muslim heritage.
There is a “solution” — let the Obamessiah arrange for her to “marry” Barney Frank and get her green card!!
It wouldn’t be any more absurd than the rest of our immigration policy, it would be a nice “marriage of convenience” for both parties, it would help our Obama in this little dilemma, and it would humanize Barney Frank while he’s under hostile scrutiny for his role in the Fannie Mae economic meltdown.
See? That’s a win/win/win for the Democrats.....
If Hussein gives her amnesty because of this... he better well give it to every illegal in this country.....or piss off 20 million Mexicans and the other couple of million from other countries that follow his every word.
Also, where this campaign choregraphs everything, and spends millions, not to have assisted this poor woman reflects on his judgment and character. Michele's, too- Shame. Of course, the caveat, if the AP story is correct.
No, they are going to ignore it. AP reported countless stories about Clinton and Lewinsky, yet managed to obfuscate the real story in favor of the "it's only about sex" angle. It's called "hide in plain sight," and I have a feeling this story will be lost in the jumble just before election day.
“What am I saying....if asked about this, Obama would only say he doesnt know anything about it and hes not responsible for her acts”
Here for four years and Bambi knows nothing??. While Auntie has been told not to say anything until after the election. Yeah, sure Obongo knew nothing.
This is another 1-2 percent chisled off the top if it gets played right...of course time is running out.
Mayor Menino DOES happen to be in the Hillary camp.
I wasn’t joking. -:) We have 2 hole cards, the Clinton and Biden’s mouth. I’m serious. The Clintons are not going to wait 8 years, if they can get back in the fray after 2—imo. —:)
THEY DARN WELL KNOW WHO DID GIVE THEM THE INFORMATION
YET THEY IMPLY IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN LEAKED BY BUSH OR MCCAIN
Good old AP, they pulled the same stunt during the Gore = Bush election with a leak from the Starr investigation. After the election it turned out a DEMOCRAT judge had leaked it.
You said leave her alone. She never hurt anybody. I said neither did the guy that robbed the bank.
She is in country living off the public dole. What difference is that than robbing a bank. Both are stealing.
she lives in BOSTON.
Quite possible. This story tries to blame McCain and Bush for blowing the whistle on Baracks Auntie.
You know that he knows...I know that he knows. But, we’re at the mercy of a lame media that may not even ask. And, if they do - he’ll say he didn’t know and they’ll not question him beyond that because they think he’s a god...or that he’ll throw them off the campaign plane.
I'm not sure if deportation orders are public but if they are not they damn well should be.
Not a parody:
HELLO!!!! it's because she was illegal. He knew she was here...but throwing her dollars leaves a trail to an illegal whom is sponging off the tax payers.
Sheesh, just how stupid do you think we are?
BTW, sleep well tonight, in the thought that if McCain wins, you won't face the type of politically based retalliation you were drooling over inflicting on others, if Obama won.
OTOH...it would be very foolish of you to “believe” McCain is better (less lethally corrupt) than Obama, and yet still you vote for Obama.
I do occasionally feed the trolls.LOL!
