Of course not, he wants to share yours with his illegal alien family members.

Times like this, I almost feel sorry for Obama. Imagine the embarrassment of having all these poor ignorant relatives coming out of the woodwork and having to figure out what to do about them all. What’s he supposed to do, invite them to state dinners? Put them up in the Lincoln bedroom? Buy them fancy houses in Hyde Park? And how many of them are there? Heh heh heh . . .

Do not concur......

Mr Obama...when did you know your Aunt was in Chicago...and when did you know she was here was illegally?

This is big... it's just a matter of how you get the info out.

I know she’s breaking the law.

There are a couple million breaking the law in TX right now also. Better to make a spectacle of her then enforce immigration laws which is a subject for another post.

She DOES seem like a nice lady:

MEMBER PROFILE
still troubleshooting

Zeituni Onyango, former computer systems coordinator, Boston

I joined Experience Corps because: I felt that I should help the children in my community. I love people and enjoy interacting with them. My friend had so many wonderful things to say about her work with Experience Corps. Also, I was idle, and this was a chance to get involved.

I know I’m making a difference when: I see the change in children I have worked with. All children are fine as long as they have a good foundation, but there is no foundation without literacy.

My favorite part of tutoring with Experience Corps is: Being able to help children succeed. As an older adult I feel I have much to give young people - as well as my peers. Experience Corps has given me that opportunity.

Working with students teaches me: Just how much I can impact the education of children in the school system. I learn different strategies and approaches to help children and also to improve myself. In addition, being an Experience Corps member has taught me that I can be a leader in my community.

From the article:

“Onyango’s case — coming to light just days before the presidential election — led to an unusual nationwide directive within Immigrations and Customs Enforcement requiring any deportations prior to Tuesday’s election to be approved at least at the level of ICE regional directors, the U.S. law enforcement official told the AP.

The unusual directive suggests that the Bush administration is sensitive to the political implications of Onyango’s case coming to light so close to the election.”

Wow.

Compare Barack Obama’s treatment of his Auntie, who he says he loves and will always support in one of his two (2!) autobiographies, with the story about John McCain quietly visiting, time after time, with his old political rival, Mo Udall, as he lay dying in a Virginia veterans hospital.

McCain is a man of honor who has compassion and cares for his fellow man. Obama is a user, who pretends to care when it is advantageous, and throws people under the bus when it is not.

I thought I would go the rest of my life without seeing a man as self-absorbed and narcissistic as Bill Clintonm, but Barack Obama takes it to a whole new level. He makes Bill Clinton look like Mother Theresa.

http://www.boston.com/news/politics/2008/articles/2008/10/31/aunt_zeituni_in_hub_obama_campaign_says/?page=full

South Boston has had a lot of famous political names over the years: John Joseph Moakley, William M. Bulger, Louise Day Hicks.

Discuss
COMMENTS (38)
Now, Americans can add another one to the neighborhood roster: Zeituni Onyango.

Barack Obama’s campaign confirmed yesterday that Onyango, who lives in a brick public housing complex on a side street not far from the headquarters of the Iron Workers, Local 7, is the senator’s aunt.

Ben LaBolt, a campaign spokesman, declined to comment further on the Democratic presidential nominee’s relationship with Onyango, who has lived in the complex for five years.

In a neighborhood known for producing generations of legendary Irish-American politicians, news that the town is home to the Kenyan relative of a presidential candidate was a shock.

State Representative Brian P. Wallace, a Democrat who lives a few blocks from Onyango, said he had heard rumors over the summer that Obama had an aunt living in the neighborhood.

“Obama’s aunt living in Southie?” he said. “I thought somebody was putting me on.”

Yesterday, as word spread that Onyango was Obama’s aunt, Wallace was bursting with pride.

“I think it’s great to have her,” he said. “Maybe her nephew will visit.”

Onyango is Obama’s paternal aunt, one of several children of the senator’s grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama. In his memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” Obama refers to Onyango affectionately as Aunt Zeituni and recalls that she was the first person to greet him when he stepped off a plane for the first time in Kenya.

” ‘Welcome home,’ Zeituni said, kissing me on both cheeks,” Obama wrote.

Onyango, who is paid a small stipend for working as a health advocate in her housing complex, has shunned attention. Yesterday morning, she ignored a television camera, saying nothing to several reporters as she walked out of her first-floor apartment, handed a duffle bag to the driver of a taxicab, and was driven off.

For three years, she was a volunteer with Experience Corps, a nonprofit that trains adults over 55 to work with children in public schools, said Mary Gunn, the group’s executive director.

In a profile on the Experience Corps website, Onyango is described as a “former computer systems coordinator” who says she wanted to volunteer in the schools because “I felt that I should help the children in my community.”

“I love people and enjoy interacting with them,” Onyango said. “Also, I was idle, and this was a chance to get involved.”

Gunn said Onyango is a wonderful person, but said, “Zeituni wishes for me not to comment, and I want to honor her wish.”

During visits to her building Wednesday morning and afternoon, and in a phone conversation Wednesday night, Onyango made clear her desire to stay out of the way of her nephew’s campaign. “We’ll talk after the election,” she said. “Come talk to me after the fifth.”

A city housing official who visited Onyango this week found the walls of her apartment adorned with photographs of Obama, including some that appeared to be more than two decades old.

“She’s been a model resident,” said William McGonagle, deputy director of the Boston Housing Authority. “She did a remarkable job as a resident health advocate.”

Federal Election Commission records show that Onyango donated at least five times to her nephew’s campaign in July and September. Three of the donations were for $5 each, and two of the donations were for $25. Records compiled by The Huffington Post show she gave a total of $260 to the campaign.

She probably is a nice lady. A pity her nephew is a soialist who hangs out with marxists and Black September sumpathisers. But she’s here illegally and living in public housing. Up to me, Barack can step down gracefully and she can stay in public housing. You think Obama will go for that? Me neither, he’d rather see her deported and living in the shcak with his half brother on 12 bucks a month than give up the Leader thing.

She is reported to have contributed $260 to his campaign —

Which means, this elderly, impoverished, essentially unemployed lady sent her MULTIMILLIONAIRE nephew a check, and he has done NOTHING to help her?

Excuse me — what a low-life he is. Does anyone think that she will be with the family in Chicago Tuesday nite for the big party in Grant Park?

I'm sure Michelle would never allow it — “auntie / granny” doesn't have the right shoes to wear.

The attack could only come from groups - not the McCain camp. And the attack could only be targeted at Obama - not the “poor old lady.” Republicans can’t be seen as beating up on some elderly woman....legal or illegal. I hope it will be picked up in the MSM and that they will ask Obama directly, but I’ll not hold my breath over that.

Obama is a disgraceful human being.

I wonder how this is going to play in the court of public opinion.

The woman may garner a lot of sympathy for Obama.

On the other hand, Obama is going to have to explain whether he knew her application for asylum had been denied, and do so convincingly. This has the potential to blow up in his face.

Tomorrow is going to be very interesting.
