Obama's Kenyan aunt, Zeituni Onyango, has been found! Hooray! This woman obviously is of some importance to Obama considering he writes about her affectionately in Dreams from my Father.
There are a couple things I don't understand though. It wasn't Obama who found her, it was British newspaper reporters. They found her living in a slum a few miles from where Obama attended law school. I'll bet Obama really appreciates those reporters finding his aunt in the slums so he could rescue her. Thing is, I can't find anything that says he's even called her to say hello. I'm sure he'll get around to it. He probably won't suspend his campaign again, maybe just pick up a phone for this one. I get the impression Auntie Zeituni is not an American citizen. Problem is she's contributed $260.00 to his campaign. She says she travels back and forth to Kenya so it isn't clear to me if she has a green card. If she doesn't, that $260 donation would be illegal. If it is an illegal donation, I'm sure Barry will give his dear sweet aunt her $260 back. Who knows, it may be just enough to get her out of the slums.

She's an illegal alien living off the taxpayers dime. Doesn't look like they're going to toss her ass back to Kenya either.

She's getting her $260 back too. We all know how Barry would never accept campaign donations from foreigners. :rolleyes:

Relevance in the last hundred hours of the most important election in the history of the Union?:confused:

What I don't understand is if she's so poor, how could she afford the $260 contribution. Also, if she's an illegal and travels back and forth, how does she get back into the country?

And Logan, perhaps the American people will indeed finally pay some attention to the many lies.

This doesn't scream desperation to you, honestly? I think it's simply sad.:cool:

Relevance in the last hundred hours of the most important election in the history of the Union? :confused:It doesn't have to have relevance about anything. This is a messageboard board dumb-dumb. People can post about any topic they want regardless of whether you think it is relevant or not.

You want relevance? How about immigration. Why is this woman still in the States? Why is she breaking the law but hasn't been deported yet? Why is she in taxpayer supported housing when she should be back in her own country?

How did a non American non citizen come to be able to make a donation to his campaign?

Why was it accepted? If this was illegal how many more has he taken? Why isnt there an investigation into the legality of his funding?

Get out your calculator and add up all these pesky little inconequential things and you start to see a bigger picture of Saint obama!

Hmm...

Obama's dear relative lives in a public housing facility, in this case, a facility referred to as a "slum".

Obama lives in a $1.65 million house.

I wonder if he feels so strongly about it, why isn't he redistributing HIS wealth??? Even in the least bit?

Rhetorical question, I know!

Hey, don't forget about his half brother living in a shack in Kenya.

No, but YOU, being a banned poster named DarwinsFriend, who keeps posting on an internet board as a retread....that's desperate.

What's the problem, retread? The DUmmies won't let you play with them?

That's sad.

I don't think it's really a big deal-if he'd of known about her living there, he probably would have put an immigration lawyer on her case, at the least.
