President Obama’s half-brother George, who subsists on two dollars a day while living in a hut, is playing a central role in a conservative film which attacks the Democrat’s policies.
George, an affable man of about thirty, calls home a corrugated metal shack in Nairobi, Kenya. George doesn’t resent his famous brother, and doesn’t expect any financial support either.
“I’m a member of his family, but I’m over-age, so I help myself. He’s taking care of the world, so he’s taking care of me,” he said, while being interviewed for the documentary, 2016: Obama’s America.
It’s interesting that President Obama hasn’t lifted a finger to aid his strapped half-brother. This is the president, after all, who is always urging wealthy people to do their “fair share”, whatever that means. The president has even used biblical language to excuse his soak-the-rich ideology.
In fact, during a speech three months ago, the president said, “I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. That’s a value.”
Of course, like a typical liberal, he believes raising taxes is the only way to help those less fortunate. But, it’s hard to take Obama’s noblesse oblige seriously, when he doesn even help his own family members.
