...and what is says about him, as a person and a philosopher.
From a foreign paper, of course:
Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.
A second relative believed to be the long-lost “Uncle Omar” described in the book was beaten by armed robbers with a “sawed-off rifle” while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of the city. He was later evicted from his one-bedroom flat for failing to pay $2,324.20 (£1,488) arrears, according to the Boston Housing Court.
Bob Krum thinks the Obama campaign found her, and told her to shut up. Her commenst seem to endorse that version of events:
Speaking outside her home in Flaherty Way, South Boston, on Tuesday, Ms Onyango, 56, confirmed she was the “Auntie Zeituni” in Mr Obama’s memoir. She declined to answer most other questions about her relationship with the presidential contender until after the November 4 election. “I can’t talk about it, I just pray for him, that’s all,” she said, adding: “After the 4th, I can talk to anyone.”
Tigerhawk damns Obama:
I have finally figured out why somebody who has been as successful as Barack Obama believes that the government must help people who cannot or do not help themselves: He simply does not understand that helping the poor, unlucky, or incompetent is first the responsibility of family.
Finally, right before the election, we are seeing the true soul of this self-proclaimed Messiah. He talks about spreading the wealth, but when it comes to his own fat cash, it stays tightly in his wallet, not even helping out the poor relations that he used as props in his exaggerated life story.
Of course he believes that the government should be doing the job of family - because he does not believe it is his job - his responsibility - to assist his own. How sickening.
A nation, no longer bound by family ties, but by dependence on government. That is Barack Obama's Change for America. Remember in France, a few summers back, when 10,000+ elderly French citizens died in their apartments during a summer heat wave, while their children refused to leave the beach? That is Barack's America, a place where everyone expects the government to take care of them, and their families, and no one lifts a finger...
It's a philosophy that will end in the eventual destruction of a society, as everyone looks to someone else to fulfill their needs, and a mass abdication of responsibilty is considered acceptable, and somehow moral.
Want to see the end result of Barack's liberalism? Just look at his aunt in the Boston slums, or check out his brother in a tinfoil hut in Kenya....
