    Actually that's a good point. Liberals are always saying that the community and working together and tolerance are all necessary important things. Heck, Obama even started as a community organizer. Though, he shows deep love for his children and Michelle, why doesn't the community organizer, have a close working relationship with his rather large and extended family? Most of the other presidents have close relationships with their extended family, but even Obama's brothers are not privy to his lifestyle.

    I have always felt that was rather odd. He has relatives that are the poorest of the poor. I remember watching an interview with one of them on Fox News, and I swear the guy wasn't wearing any shoes. But that might just be the culture in Kenya. He also has some Uncle or something that runs a liquor store in NYC. His relatives are always humble and when asked questions about Barack, they always say he is too busy to keep in contact with them. Or that he has the important job of running the country. Those may be courted answers however. As I would be mad if one of my relatives never invited me to the White House if they became President. Obama if he cared about those people in his family should be out there parading them around, then after the fact. They should say these things about him. It seems like he just ignores most of his extended family and never even attempts to or try to help them out.

    Obama’s Brother in Kenya

    As background, Obama and his half-brother, George, share a biological father, Barack Obama Sr., but have different mothers. The father left when Obama was 2 years old, and he was raised by his mother and maternal grandparents in the U.S. and, for a few years, in Indonesia. George grew up in Kenya.

    Neither had their father as much of a presence in their lives. The two met briefly when George, who is about 20 years younger than Barack, was very young. After the Italian Vanity Fair story was reported, a CNN correspondent caught up with George Obama and interviewed him on camera. When asked about the brouhaha about his economic situation, he said that the media reports made him angry, adding:

    George Obama: I was brought up well. I live well even now. The magazines, they have exaggerated everything … There are some challenges, but maybe it is just like where you [the reporter] come from, there are the same challenges.

    Its like many other leftists/marxists-they never live the life they present to others. Marx, Lenin, Che, etc.

    Do you expect Obama to have his brother, who he barely knows, move into the White House with him?

    Obama's relationship with his family is nobody's business but his own, but sure enough, it's gotta become a partisan issue, just like everything else.

    Re: George Bush Interview- Hannity

    The difference here is striking. Here you have one family. One guy becomes President. Then his son becomes President and now his other son will run for President and has a good shot of becoming so. That means that Jeb will be able to take advice from two other Presidents who are family. There are only 44 people in history with that type of advice and only five of those living today. Two of which are his immediate family. I also Highly doubt that Obama will help Jeb if he becomes President, but Bill Clinton surely will.

    Then you have Obama, who has so many relatives but none of them live the lifestyle that he does, and I can't even name anybody that regularly visits him from his family.

    Why is it partisan? It's not. I am comparing Bush to Obama. Bush simply has a better family life than Obama does. Heck, even Clinton has a better family life than Obama and his family is WAAAAY more scandalous than the Bush's. Yet, there will NEVER be another Obama in the White House. Unless Michelle Runs. If the election were held tomorrow it's a slam dunk for another Clinton.
