The Italian edition of Vanity Fair said that it had found George Hussein Onyango Obama living in a hut in a ramshackle town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi.

Mr Obama, 26, the youngest of the presidential candidate's half-brothers, spoke for the first time about his life, which could not be more different than that of the Democratic contender.

"No-one knows who I am," he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month."

Ah, estranged step-siblings are quite the theme this year; there's this fellow, and Cindy McCain's step-sister (despite her referring to herself as an "only child").

If you have a step-sister, you can still be an only child. I have step siblings but my parents only had one child - me.

You have to wonder why Cindy Hensley's dad left her millions and the first daughter received $10,000.

Didn't Zer-0 say something at Saddleback:


I think America's greatest moral failure in my lifetime has been that we still don't abide by that basic precept in Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me, and that notion of -- that basic principle applies to poverty

He doesn't mind stealing from taxpayers to give money to poor people they dont know, but he wont help his own brother.

Has it not occurred to you that George Obama might not want help from his brother?

George has probably been to Chicago and considers himself fortunate. :D

If he can live off a dollar a day, more power to him. He doesn't seem to be complaining about his life.

Well, according to the Telegaph article, George Obama is embarrassed about his situation.

The way it's written it's hard to discern if George is embarrassed about his situation or his Brother.

As much as I dislike Barack the candidate, it's hardly his fault that his father felt the need to create progeny and leave them penniless. Barry's half-siblings on his mom's side are doing fine. The senior Obama was an alcoholic and an irresponsible lout.

So yet another shit-storm about something that's totally unrelated to the election, to consume the Republican’s time and limited focus - humped by Drudge?

Grasp at straws much? :rolleyes:

"No-one knows who I am," he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month." As will we all.

Keep the faith dude. Sounds like you'll be your brothers economic advisor.
