Why Won’t Obama “Redistribute” His Own Wealth…
To His Needy Family?

First we found out that Barack’s half-brother is living in squalor in Kenya.

Now we learn that Barack’s aunt and uncle are living in deplorable conditions in Boston.

Shouldn’t Barack practice what he preaches.. and redistribute some of he and Michelle’s wealth to his needy family?   Or is Michelle still paying off those damn student loans she whines about all the time?

UPDATE (from Dan): A reader of Hugh Hewitt’s blog asks a great question: “So let me get this straight. Millionaire Obama doesn’t use his wealth to help his poor illegal alien Aunt get out of public housing, but if I complain about Obama wanting to raise my taxes to ‘spread the wealth around’ I’m the selfish one?

  1. He probably got burnt out sharing peanut butter sandwiches as a child. I think he’s proven what he does with extra wealth. 🙁

  2. He’s a liberal… he wants someone else to “do something” with someone else’s money.

  3. When Obama told the DNC crowd, “I am my brother’s keeper,” he meant it figuratively. You’re clearly a racist if you interpret his remark any other way. 😉

  4. How did John Kerry and Teddy Kennedy let this poor, desperate constituent slip through the cracks in Taxachussests where the loving, caring all embracing Democrat poverty fixing super machine is oiled and rolling?

    Sounds like a case of local and state government not only failing, but falling flat on its face. Obama should go after those rascals and promise change.

    She is being treated like she is living in Chicago. She needs some serious wealth redistribution. After all, charity begins at Home Depot with higher corporate taxes.

  5. Cuffy Meigs over at Ace reminds us that Bill Clinton was elected on promises of a middle-class tax cut… promises that he broke of course:

    Obama supporters: If you think a committed, Chicago “New Party” (look it up) socialist is going to cut taxes… you are nuts. Either that or you know in your hearts that Obama will raise taxes, and you’ve been lying to yourselves and us.

    Because that would be responsible, private action. Obama is a collectivist. He wants a society where everyone is irresponsibly, desperately dependent on public action.

  7. While I can understand not supporting the brother in Kenya…Barry’s never been very close to his father’s family(s?) in Kenya…but the aunt and uncle in Massachusetts? Perhaps it’s the fragmented-nature of his upbringing, but it seems he’s not close to ANY of his blood-kin other than his grandparents. Even his mother seems an arm’s-distance relative. That probably explains his narcissism and social-distance….even the several times he’s changed his own name.

    Would he be the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer if he was still Barry Dunham?

  8. For that matter, shouldn’t he have given half of his record fundraising to John McCain? I mean, is that not what fairness requires?

  9. According to Obama’s book she is a computer programmer. hmmmm….1+1=0

  10. Disclosure: “Claude Slagenhop” and “Cuffy Meigs” are socialist bad guys in _Atlas Shrugged_… I was just playin’ on Cuffy-at-Ace’s riff.

  11. Oh, families are game? Besides half-brothers and aunts and uncles, let’s talk about candidates’ children and John McCain’s first wife. Teenage pregnancy in the Palin family? What’s wrong with their morals? Their values? Oxycontin seems pretty popular, too. And John McCain: he dumps his first injured wife for a younger, richer woman as quick as he goes from being a Reagan free market guy to some sort of populist schlock dude, with some pretty strong defenses of progressive tax systems along the way in 2000. And Todd Palin, the member of the Alaska Independence Party–which hates America. Palin sleeps in the same bed as him and eats dinner with him day in and day out. How many toasts has she made to him?

    I’ll be toasting the toast campaign on Tuesday.

  12. Oh, families are game? Besides half-brothers and aunts and uncles, let’s talk about candidates’ children and John McCain’s first wife.

    Please do.

    All of McCain’s children support him, as does his first wife, to whom he was immensely generous and has repeatedly apologized.

    The Palins are supporting and helping their daughter.

    Meanwhile, Obama leaves his family members to live in squalor while he kicks back with millions of dollars.

    And liberal Democrat gays like jimmy take two-year-old children to sex fairs dressed as sexual slaves to “show off”.

  13. Oxycontin seems pretty popular, too.

    Based on the testimony of a blackmailing family member? Really, Jimmy? Really?

  14. “And liberal Democrat gays like jimmy take two-year-old children to sex fairs dressed as sexual slaves to “show off”.”

    Which of course has nothing to do with the topic, and no doubt Jimmy doesn’t do that. More proof that you need serious therapy.

  15. Remember how Obama was slamming McCain about the number of houses he owns? Well, one of them is occupied by a very elderly and infirm member of John McCain’s family, and another by his daughter. So, not only does Obama not take care of his own family, he attacks others for taking care of theirs.

  16. […] would be allowed anywhere near the reins of power. A proven dirty socialist, Obama would “Redistribute the wealth“, except to his own stranger-than-fiction family. (Oh, can we now sponsor or “Adopt an […]
