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.
