Who? My Aunt? She’s here?
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, November 01, 2008

Close family - this is an aunt he lovingly praised in one of his books. Apparently she's been here 4 years without Obama knowing it:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Saturday he didn't know that one of his relatives was living in the United States illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed.

The Associated Press found that Obama's aunt had been instructed to leave the country four years ago by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya. The woman, Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUHN on-YANG-oh), is living in public housing in Boston and is the half-sister of Obama's late father.
Of course he didn't know. Just like he didn't know his preacher of 20 years was spewing vile anti-American hate from the pulpit.

Oh, and leave it to the British press to find her - apparently the US press hadn't a clue.

Dos this mean she moves into that hut with her brother in law? I love that commercial Obama runs about his family in Hawaii. Its as if he wants America to see that he is a typical white person.

Barack Obama’s beloved Auntie Zeituni is living in a Boston housing project. Obama, of course, didn’t know anything about it. "Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Saturday he didn’t know that one of his relatives was living in the United States illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed."

Hmmmm...when the London Times found her a few days ago, though, she sure made it sound as if she had been told by someone to keep quiet:
"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.’”

She "can’t talk" about her nephew right now, but she "can talk" in a few days? Maybe I’m being overly suspicious, but I suspect that she was told to keep quiet by Barack Obama and that he knows all about her and that he is now openly lying about it.

"is living in public housing in Boston"

In public housing? But I thought illegal immigrants living off US taxpayers was a figment of the right-wingers’ imaginations. Aren’t they supposed to be a net plus to our economy?

I wonder what else Obama doesn’t know? I guess we’ll have four long years to find out!

Yay!

Well, he said he believed he was "his brother’s keeper" not his aunt’s keeper, so we give him a pass on this one.

Once again, the folks who went hysterical over government leaking of Joe the Plumber’s delinquent taxes and lack of plumbing license seem to care not at all that immigration info on B.O.’s aunt was leaked, in violation of both law, policy, and her privacy, from the Bush DHS.

Nauseating hypocrisy makes it very hard to take any of your complaints seriously. You love it when government power is abused to punish Democrats. You have no scruples at all, and don’t expect any sympathy from liberals when "eye for an eye" rules come into play - it’s too bad the Obama campaign isn’t the towering authoritarians you hysterically imagine, or even a worthless patch on the Bush Admin for abuse of power, because I’d be strongly tempted to enjoy the Fairness Doctrine enforced on certain throwers of stone in glass houses.

McQ says in another thread:
Go after ’em. Prosecute them. I have no problem with that.
I guess he’ll have to put it in every thread to make sure glasnost sees it and doesn’t burst any blood vessels.

I agree, prosecute anyone who leaks private info.

But Glasnost and his twin sister, mkultra seem to think that violated Joe’s privacy rights, no one can talk about anything like this ever again. Must be nice to be able to define what can or can’t ever be talked about.

Read his language and see the amount of deceit there. For Joe, its a leak, because he supports McCain. But in the aunt’s case, a violation of law, privacy and rights.

Sorry a$$hole, but it is a crime in both cases. I hate Illinois Nazis who think they are the only ones who can define free speech.

And lost in the moral equivilance argument is the real point of both articles...

But that’s what the MKs and glasnosts of the world want.

What I can’t understand is why he doesn’t "SHARE THE WEALTH" with his poor relations?

Glasnot is completely correct. In the spirit of fairness, let’s punish those who leak information. We shall be completely fair and start chronologically. Joe was leaked first. So Obama should apologize and end his campaign, because he cannot control his supporters from doing such despicable deeds.

Once Obama has done this, say on Monday. McCain can do the same...maybe Tuesday or Wednesday because he is old, he takes longer to do things.

Fair enough?

So leaks are bad now according to the left?

Let Auntie Obama and the cow who checked Joe the Plummer share the same squalid jail cell.

Hey, glasnost!

Looks like the "leaker" was - BARACK OBAMA! (Or whoever *coughBillayers* ghostwrote his Autobiography).

There is a word for people who speak before they have all the facts when it benefits their side. Now what is that word?

I guess I will keep checking back to see if we have an "oops" from you.

I won’t hold my breath.

But we all know it.
