Practice what you preach? Not Obama!

Senator Barack Obama has lived the American dream that has taken him from nothing to a hairs breadth from White House. But a dark secret looms only a few miles from where the Messianic Democratic presidential candidate studied at Harvard; his Kenyan aunt and uncle, immigrants living in less than modest circumstances in Boston. Zeituni Onyango, an aunt of Obama's, affectionately described in Dreams From My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston!

Another relative thought to be Obama's long-lost "Uncle Omar" also from his book was beaten by armed robbers while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of the city. He was later evicted from his one-bedroom apartment for failing to pay $2k in bills, according to the Boston Housing Court.

The press has repeatedly theatricised Obama's odyssey, but they have not revealed the other side of his family's experience. Just across town from where Obama made history as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, some of his closest blood relatives have confronted the harshness of immigrant life in America.

So why does Obama want to spread the American tax-payers weatlh around, but not his own to assist his own family? Hmmmm....?

Is the answer stereo-typical left-wing hypocrisy?
Similar to the breed in the UK where the left wing animals say state school are good enough for everyone - except their own children, of course?
Or similar to the type that waste massive amounts of money on socialised medicine thats not good enough for them either?
Was there a prize for answering the question, Lt.Col?

First off let me say I hope Obama does not win the White House. This view is purely on the basis that if your country is at war you want a leader that's actually fought in one.

However Colonel if this tripe is all you can come up with then McCain is screwed.

Seriously, if you truly believe McCain should be in the White House stop this BS and give us a good article.

Tut, Tut, Annoyed, what war has the current commander in chief fought in?

Thats why I have to ask, did you vote for the incumbent in the 2004 election?

The answer to your question has only been revealed now Colonel! And it's so shocking and damning for him that it must come to light quickly before Tuesday!

Aunt Zeituni is an illegal alien!!! That's right! She's in the country illegally and has subverted the system and lives in govenment provided housing!!!

What American citizen or legal immigrant did not get housing because of this women's deceptiveness?

It's all coming out now! This must see light nationally before Tuesday.

Grunt: it's not too likely with a left dominated media, is it? :(
