Also in the news ...................

Problem siblings

President Obama's brother refused entry to the UK following alleged sexual assault on British girl. Just how many "problem" relatives has this guy got?!!

Out of the mouths of babes

Iranian TV Interviewer, on live TV: "Tell me little girl what do you call your toy monkey?"

Little girl: "Well my Daddy calls him Ahmadinejad!"

(Bad idea Daddy)


Update April 13 : Samson Obama denies sex attack claims! Which, of course (to quote Mandy Rice-Davis again) he would do wouldn't he? Interesting this still hasn't made it into the US news, we all still live behind an iron curtain of news censorship don't we?!

Sarah, you forgot the Big Zero's aunt who lives on welfare in Boston, I think it is. That is a bit of a problem also, in my estimation.

Regarding the monkey, I'm with Dad!

No I haven't forgotten the illegal immigrant auntie, (who he "didn't know was in the USA") she is just one more of the dysfunctional relatives.

First there is the dead beat alcoholic daddy (who, if I am not wrong was guilty of statutory rape), there is the mother (attitudes may change, but in 1961 for an unmarried eighteen year old white girl to be pregnant by a thirty year old black man, would suggest she was a problem child) then there is the brother with the drugs issue, and now we meet little brother Samson with the wandering hands.

Who's the next embarrassing relative to appear on the scene. At least Bill Clinton only had the one Roger ....... er .... what I mean to say is that he only had the one brother Roger!!

As for the monkey story, I don't think you really want to be with Dad right now, I doubt his situation is very comfortable!

Dr.D said...

You know, we never heard much about Zero's grandparents, other than that they were "typical white people" and that they generously gave him a home and raised him after his parents abandoned him. I think we can presume that they must have been on the permissive side to have raised their daughter to do the things she did. Zero's mother must have been a wild child. I wish we had more verifiable facts on them all, but Zero will no doubt make sure those are not available.

With regard to the monkey, I stand in support of Dad. He has the correct understanding of ahmadinejad.

Yes, Obama is in the rather unique position of having written an autobiography which tells you very very little(assuming he wrote it rather than Bill Ayers)

You are a brave man to stand by the Iranian Dad, Iran is not generally kind to those who compare the leader to an ape, no matter how accurate the description!

To add another item of interest in the "relative'' issue, Obama's white grandmother just happen to conveniently die -- one day before her grandson being elected as president of the United States.

If there were any living relatives on his mother's side that could either confirm or deny just exactly where this U.S. president was born in 1961, it would have been her!

Obama's powerful and influential backers having invested 100s of millions of dollars, plus years of grooming their next puppet in office, would not have had any second thoughts in cleaning up potential "loose-ends", when necessary.

On the "problem child" issue in relation to Obama's white mother, there were some nude photos floating around the internet a few months ago. Judging from the living-room furniture, I'd say these b&w photos were taken about the mid-1960s, showing her wearing nothing more than spiked heels.

Obama's backers are certainly powerful and determined. It seems likely that they have bought at least one Conservative Supreme court judge - in fact Justice Scalia went so far as to hint at that recently.

Somebody is blocking the hearings.

The timing of the grandmother's death was very odd. It is hard to believe that anyone would actually murder her. However, it was strange that she never spoke up in favour of his presidential ambitions, even when she was in better health.

As to the mother, I know nothing of the photographs, but given how far she stepped outside the social norms at the time, I would not be shocked to find that was true.

Dr.D said...

Sarah, where did Scalia say this? I seem to have missed it.

Sarah Maid of Albion said...

This was the article I was referring to.

In retrospect, it is possibly overstating it to say he implied one had been bought, but he seems to suggest that one of the conservative judges is voting against the others on this one issue.

Dr.D said...

Sarah, I have to say that I think you have really overstated the case simply because Scalia is way too careful to make such a rash statement without clear proof. It would be suicide for him, and he is a good Catholic!

Sarah Maid of Albion said...

Yes, I guess you are right, it was an off the cuff remark made in a hurry and based on a half remembered article, which, on re-reading does not say what I thought it said. Sorry I am usually more careful with what I write.
