WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Saturday he didn't know that one of his relatives was living in the United States illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed.
The Associated Press found that Obama's aunt had been instructed to leave the country four years ago by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya. The woman, Zeituni Onyango, is living in public housing in Boston and is the half-sister of Obama's late father.

That’s not the Zeituni Onyango he knew.
How’d she slip under his omniscient radar?
He doesn’t even know his own status. Why would he know hers?
Just when I thought I couldn’t detest him any more, a new story comes out that makes me more hostile by the day. This election is bad for my health!
Nothing about Hussein is legal.
He probably just got the name, Zeituni Onyango, mixed up with somebody else.
He just threw his aunt under the bus... Looks like she’ll have plenty of company.
Barry could care less about poor migrant Mexicans. He wants amnesty for his Kenyan/muslim relatives and compadres. How many more of them are here that we are supporting. And this SOB calls US cheap!
And we thought X42 was trailer trash.
This guy wanted amnesty last summer for all illegal aliens. Now all of sudden he wants the law enforced? Another relative under the bus.
above his pay grade
“And we thought X42 was trailer trash. “
Cripes.....Obama’s illegal relatives get subsidized by us, they don’t have to be trailer trash!
Since Obama doesn’t know anything about anyone he associates with or is related American’s have no choice but to conclude he is too stupid and incompetent to be elected President.
Does he know ANYTHING????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is he returning the $260 she contributed (while she lived off the taxpayers in a publicly funded housing project in Boston)?
NObama has spent his life making Marxists, leftists and America-haters his surrogate family, while turning his nose up to the welfare of his real family.
To laugh hysterically or weep in despair, that is the quandry!
If he won’t take care of family how can he take care of his country?
You can’t make this stuff up...its like bizarro world.
Exactly! WTF does he know? He’s a skinny half black Sargent Schultz!
Because propagandists propping up this lightweight-collecitivist-con-artist said so. /sarcasm
The AP story here says that she also gave illegally to his campaign!
Just another hypocrite politician who as he runs to the center says we need to take care of our families and take responsibility. Then in practice, he leaves all that to the government.
More infuriating, he exaggerates his attachment and admiration of this Auntie in his book. A book that makes him good money. And so far there is NO indication he spared any of that to help her.
If I had an Aunt I deeply admired who was seeking asylum from another country here in the USA, I’d try to help out as best as possible. No sign of that from Senator Obama. Maybe all his talk about “selfish people” lately is some guilt seeping through...
That’s not the Aunt Gooniegoogoo that I knew...
“NObama has spent his life making Marxists, leftists and America-haters his surrogate family, while turning his nose up to the welfare of his real family”
Why not, he’s got you and I to pay for his family, legally or not! This guy gets in we’ll have the entire country of Kenya here supporting them. Maybe that was the idea to start with.
The question in my mind is whether BHO, himself, is living here legally.
Knew this was coming. And the MSM will not ask any further questions. Done.
Who Is David Axelrod Obamas Political Advisor?
March 5, 2008 Political strategist David Axelrod is Senator Barack Obamas key political advisor and speech writer.
Axelrod has previously worked on the campaigns of numerous liberals, including Deval Patrick, current governor of Massachusetts
Sen. Obama and I are long-time friends and allies. We often share ideas about politics, policy and language. Deval Patrick
Looks like obama will throw anybody under the bus, or off the plane, to get elected.
Auntie Z goes UTB.
Never in the rest of my life did I imagine we would have a presidential candidate who makes Bill Clinton look like a saint!
Hmmm, he knows Joe the Plumber’s blood type and middle school grades but doesn’t know his Auntie is an illegal alien, scamming the taxpayers by living in public housing?
For a man that wants to be President his own private life is a complete mystery to him. Doesn’t know his neighbors, doesn’t know that his preacher is a genocidal racist, doesn’t know his kin folk are illegals.
Nothing increases the people’s faith in politicians like transparent lying.
Because that's what all of us taxpayers are for. Obama wants to take our income and redistribute it to her, and millions of others who ignore and defy our country's laws.
What a lying, hypocritical, socialist piece of crap he is.
Is this getting any traction? I am working today. Is this the November surprise?
Doesn't know anything about his circle of friends.
Doesn't even know anything about his own family.
Such a convenient excuse.... He knew she was here he sated as much in his book. So he cares so little about relatives that he listes in his memoirs but doesn’t even know her status? Auntie goes under the bus with Granny, brother, Friends, Pastor, mentors..
Pretty crowded under that bus.... I guess most Americans will be under there after next tuesday.
So I guess this never came up at the table on Thanksgiving...oh, she has never been invited. Gotcha!
If BHO's not Kenyan, she's not his Aunt.
Original Birth Certificate ---> Father: "unknown"?
RUN AWAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. I guess the plan to not comment wasn’t going to make it to election day so they went with the Shrillary “I know nothing” routine.
This story is very revealing on so many levels. We should get this out to EVERYONE. It will not help with the party disciples and their religious beliefs. They already dismiss it as nothing.
But the normal person can see the hypocrisy of Obama and how deep it runs.
An illegal alien relative who lives in a public housing project and gives money to your campaign. Can it get anymore crazy.
Someone needs to bring this up and in relation Obama’s position on illegal alien drivers licenses, benefits and citizenship.
Oh they are:
Throw them whatever you can folks. And guarantee your voice is heard in the Battleground States.
But he has never admitted that he was wrong about anything. The closest he has come is admitting to acting ‘boneheaded.’ But because he did not know.
Uh oh!!!! his prompter was not on, somebody better get him plugged back in.
