Obama says he didn't know aunt's illegal status
MSNBC ^

Posted on 11/01/2008 8:33:43 AM PDT by MAD-AS-HELL

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.

Right. Obama didn't know. Just like he doesn't know Bill Ayers or know that his own Rev had sermons that were chalk full of anti white and anti-American themes. Obama doesn't seem to know much about anything and if that's the case, why in the hell should he be elected president?

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!

He probably just got the name, Zeituni Onyango, mixed up with somebody else.

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!

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.

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...

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.

Who Is David Axelrod – Obama’s Political Advisor?

March 5, 2008 – Political strategist David Axelrod is Senator Barack Obama’s 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

I agree.

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.

Why didn't Obama act as his auntie's keeper, and bring her to live in his big old house in Hyde Park?

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.

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.

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:

Obama has 3 ways of dealing with a controversy
1. Play dumb
2. Deny
3. Invoke moral superiority

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.

It took the TIMES OF LONDON to dig this story up. It was an Italian Newsweekly that found Obama’s poor brother. Our media has done nothing but fawn over this fraud and treated his claptrap, pish posh empty rhetoric as if he's a genius.
