Now, should Obama give a hand to a step-sister or step-brother that he doesn't know?
If he were a normal person, just getting by, I'd say no. If you don't know the people - if you didn't even know your dad - just that he was your biological father and nothing else, why should you be expected to people who are only accidentally related to you?
But...Obama wrote a book called Dreams of My Father. Despite the fact that his dad abandoned him, Obama apparently had/has feelings for him. So why not for the rest of his children?
Plus, Obama is all about sharing the wealth and making people pay "their fair share" to help out those who weren't born with silver spoons in their mouths.
Yes his half sister and half brother don't get a dime from him. That's really all they'd need to make their lives better. $100 and they'd live a life of luxury on that for a year.
Of course Obama could be doing it to keep them safe. "Don't kidnap them," he's saying. "I won't pay a dime for their return."
From the record of their lives and writings, it’s clear that Barack Obama Sr. and Barack Obama Jr. both share the anti-colonial view that blames Western colonial exploitation for the poverty and suffering of the Third World. Yet George doesn’t buy it. He observes that at the time of its independence in the early 1960s “Kenya was on an economic par with Malaysia or Singapore. Look where we are now, and where they are. They’re practically developed and industrialized, while Kenya is still a basket case.” George believes that poor countries should take responsibility for their own situation. “What’s our excuse for failure? We don’t have one. We’ve only got ourselves to blame.”
Incredible though it seems, George Obama is, within the context of his own society, a conservative. He doesn’t worship at the shrine of Barack Obama Sr. and he espouses an ideology diametrically opposed to that of his father and his famous brother. George has experienced first-hand the empty rhetoric of the two Baracks, and he rejects it based on his actual experience of Third World poverty.
No wonder President Obama despises George, doesn’t want him around, doesn’t care to hear George’s views circulated in America, and won’t lift a finger to help him even when George’s son is in the hospital.
