Obama's Aunt Distraught Over Estrangement With First Family(A known criminal complains to media)
foxnews ^ | 12/1/09

Posted on 12/01/2009 6:03:51 AM PST by bestintxas

President Obama's aunt buried her face in her hands and sobbed as she described her anguish that she no longer has contact with him and his family after the revelation she had been living illegally for years in the United States in public housing.

Zeituni Onyango told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview that she is troubled that her immigration woes have made her a political liability to her nephew.

Onyango, the half sister of Obama's late father, says she has exiled herself from the family after attending Obama's inauguration because she didn't want to become fodder for his foes. Obama and his family have not reached out to her either, she said.

"Before, we were family. But right now, there is a lot of politics, and me, I am not interested in any politics at all," said Onyango, whose appeal for asylum from her native Kenya is before an immigration judge in Boston.

The Obamas are her only family in the United States, she said.

They can keep a better eye on her in the US. She is proving to have a yakky mouth. Who knows what she might reveal?

She might say how she held him in her arms right after he was born in the hut. Oh, how can he do this to me?

Surely Obama could find a room for her in the White House (“The People’s House”). Maybe she could share an apartment with his mother-in-law.

Smells like BS to me...

And speaking of bambi and his family...

I read that his gramma went on a pilgrimage to mecca.
If so, who paid for the trip?

if she really cared for him, was causing bad press, an embarrassment, etc, it seems the best solution is for her to return to Kenya where she would be a celebrity.

Obama and his family have not reached out to her either, she said.

She refused to discuss how she affords to live now or who is paying for her attorney.

"I loved President Bush," Onyango said while moving toward a framed photo of Bush and his wife standing with Barack and Michelle Obama at the White House on inauguration day. "He is my No. 1 man in my life because he helped me when I really needed that help."

Any conspiracy theorists out there?

I'd be inclined to keep her here and ship the nephew to Kenya.

Dunno, but Obama needs a bigger bus at the rate he’s going.
