Skip to comments.Barack Obama's brother lives on $1 per day ....(Is George Obama proud of Kenya ?)

Democratic US Presidential candidate Barrack Obama has a forgotten brother in Africa, whose family is at the edge of existence, earning less than $1 per day.
George Husein Owango Obama, who lives outside the media spotlight, recently decided to speak about his relationship with Barack Obama. In his interview for "Vanity Fair" he spoke about his life, however avoided giving responses to direct questions to describe his brother.
"We live here with less than a dollar per day" said George, who lives in the periphery of Nairobit. Up until now the US Press managed to track down seven of Obama's brothers, the only one missing was George.
"I met Barack briefly, two years ago. We talked, but he was somehow strange, as if I didn't speak to a brother." added George Obama.

Barack wants to tax us until we’re all living on that same amount.
Wonder what he pays in taxes.
Oh oh... another “Billy” Carter or Tony Rodham?
“as if I didn’t speak to a brother.”
Isn’t he a half brother?
Hmm. Michele Obama complains about the high cost of living in Chicago on a family income around $500K (plus the book income), then suggests that she’ll spend her tax rebate on earrings, while Barack’s family needs help and gets ignored by him.
Why am I not surprised?
Not enough, according to Obamessiah.
If there is anyone in the world living on 50 cents a day, brother George must be taxed down to that level in the interests of fairness.
Obama said so the other day. Economic growth, property rights, and whether the poor get richer have no standing compared to the right of the Obamessiah to redistribute wealth if anyone is making more than another.
Pathetic- this guy is a complate fraud. Imagine letting your half brother live in absolute poverty. Another McGovern in the making hopefully !
George Hussein Onyango Obama, 26, the youngest of the presidential candidate’s half-brothers.
got some change?
Maybe Obama’s half brother can hookup with Tony Rezko and magically acquire a million-dollar hut.
Barak ain’t his brother’s keeper.
“No-one knows who I am,” he told the magazine, before claiming: “I live here on less than a dollar a month.”
Flipping through channels late one night, I think I saw him on TV with Sally Struthers doing her infomercial.
Barak aint his brothers keeper.
Nor is he a ‘helper’
The title should say $1.00 per month according to the article...
I feel like sending the guy $10 just to make his day and stick it in the eye of Obama.
Look, let’s at least be fair about this. George is no more connected to Barack than I am to you.
The fact is that both were spawn of a “rolling stone” father, separated by 20 years and different continents. My guess is that Barack met George just that one time.
His obligations? Probably none.
Says $1 per day three times in the article
If every FReeper donated one lousy dollar we could all stick it to Obama.
Jackson and Sharpton said the same thing.
The Telegraph reports his income as $1 a month.
Why does this article say $1 a day?
Barry Hussien really needs to explain to his friends at the NY Times and CBS why he is in favor of protecting trees, snails, and the polar ice cap while he allows his BROTHER to suffer in absolute poverty. What a fraud this creep is. Imagine this jerk hnaging out with his racist wife at the Ritz Carleton in Maui chowing on filet mignon while his own brother is starving- What an ass !
“His obligations? Probably none.”
Mighty Christain of you, brutha.
Here is another:
Barack Obama’s homeless half-brother found living in Kenya shack, earning less than $1 a day
“Papa Was A Rolling Stone”
It was the third of september
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will
‘cause that was the day that my daddy died
Never had a chance to see him, no
Never heard nothing but bad things about him
Mama, I’m depending on you to tell me the truth
Mama just hung her head and said
“papa was a rollin’ stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died
All he left us was alone”
Hey, mama, is it true what they say
That papa never worked aday in his life
Some bad talk going around sayin’
Papa had three outside children
And another wife
That ain’t right
reality from my father
That just about nails it.
Here is a link to the UN Millennium Development Goal
The only consistency .... both are HUSSEIN in the middle !
“Whatsoever Obama does to the least of Obama’s brothers, that Obama does unto Him.”
When He was hungry, Obama showed curiosity during his visit to Africa.
When He was naked, Obama distanced himself in his book.
Now enter into _______? (Surely not the “home of My Father” as the song goes.)
Just the reality...ah...brutha.
“”No-one knows who I am,” he told the magazine, before claiming: “I live here on less than a dollar a month.”
The writer of this post obviously failed comprehensive reading. The above quote comes from the post on the Drudge report.
The same could be said about BHO! Granted, we here at FR know, but the sheeple????
Barack discovers his “African Roots” to back-up a fairy-tale story in his biography, and give himself good “street-cred” in South Chicago. But otherwise, knows nothing about and has nothing to do with these relatives.
Just a quick follow-up.
We can criticize Obama for a lot of things, but not taking care of a half-brother who is the son of a drunk, profligate father, whom he probably met only once, is the least of them.
Is that an un-christian attitude? In the grand scheme of things, probably, but specifically, probably not.
Now, if YOU were to send help to George, THAT would be Christian.
So sorry, I relied on your quote at #13 which (1) says something different upon rereading and (2) was made by you, the original poster. *slapping self, pouring more coffee*
Do not worry, when BHO's Global Poverty Act passes the Senate next year, we ALL will.
You can say that again.
*slapping self, pouring more coffee*
I could do that to myself too for not seeing it up front.
Shucks...I thought Obambi said sumtin bout "the least of etc etc " But I guess his thoughts were meant another 'political way' when he spoke to that audience...
GPA again, this thing must not pass.
