The Plot Thickens

This week we learned more about the compassionate side of Barack. You'll remember that several weeks ago it was learned that Barack's brother George was living in a box.
George Onyango Obama, the half-brother of Senator Barack Obama, lives in a hut outside Nairobi and survives on a mere $12 a year and says he is "ashamed" when people find out he is Obama's half-brother.
This week we learned that Barack's aunt was living in Boston - and doing much better than George - on the public dime.
In his Wednesday night infomercial, Obama declared that his "fundamental belief" was that "I am my brother's keeper."

Back in Kenya, his brother lives in a shack on 12 bucks a year. If Barack is his brother's keeper, why couldn't he send him a $10 bill and nearly double the guy's income? The reality is that Barack Obama assumes the government should be his brother's keeper, and his aunt's keeper. Why be surprised by that? For 20 years in Illinois, Obama has marinated in the swamps of the Chicago political machine and the campus radicalism of William Ayers and Rashid Khalidi. In such a world, the redistributive urge is more or less a minimum entry qualification.
Now, we get an added bonus - Barack's aunt is an illegal alien.
Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.
How sweet it is!
Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as "Aunti Zeituni" in Obama's memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday. This person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss Onyango's case.
That Barack is a wacko liberal now becomes indisputable! The common liberal might occasionally practice some of the things he preaches - he might recycle or have a compost pile - but the most radical of the breed are busy writing major outbursts against global warming while jetting to their favorite vacation spot for the weekend.

Onyango is Obama's paternal aunt, one of several children of the senator's grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama. In his memoir, "Dreams From My Father," Obama refers to Onyango affectionately as “Aunt Zeituni” and recalls that she was the first person to greet him when he stepped off a plane and arrived for the first time in Kenya.

"'Welcome home,' Zeituni said, kissing me on both cheeks," Obama wrote.

Just because democrats believe in being compassionate doesn't mean we should expect them to act the belief out. They also believe in good education, and better opportunity for minorities, yet they hold millions of minorities in permanent poverty by forcing them into shamlessly bad urban schools. These words they throw around, they're just words - a weapon used to diminish the competition.

Onyango's case — coming to light just days before the presidential election — led to an unusual nationwide directive within Immigrations and Customs Enforcement requiring any deportations prior to Tuesday's election to be approved at least at the level of ICE regional directors, the U.S. law enforcement official told the AP.

The unusual directive suggests that the Bush administration is sensitive to the political implications of Onyango's case coming to light so close to the election.

I wonder what Barack would do with his aunt as president.
Obama and Biden support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.
Ah, but she's not in good standing. Would he be compassionate and bring her "out of the shadows?" Or would he deport her? Here's a shoker - his website position paper doesn't go into that much detail.

Everything about this man sickens me, including his radical white-hater wife. Her father was very much a part of the big Democrat Chicago political machine...very, very corrupt.
