At first i thought this was sarcasm, like your avatar, but....your serious? hahaha! oh man that statement is as almost as funny AS your avatar. Now
I'm thinking that's serious as well. Pure comedy gold
I swear, there should be warnings before such comedic posts, I mean , alot of times I am sipping a very hot cup of coffee while reading these boards.
Now I'm nearly wearing it.
though....., as far as Obamas brother in law goes, it sounded to me in context that he is embarrassed at HIS OWN situation, and being
basically a poor person without a job. I'm fairly sure that's what he meant.
But as Greeneyedleo pointed out, family relationships can be very dicey. I have a full brother that i haven't seen nor spoken too in over 10 years,
and we live in the same county. Does that make either of us a bad person? No.
They are half brothers, and live in 100% different worlds. What's Obama gonna do, offer to buy the man a home in America? First off that'd be
insulting. People like Obama's half brother are not like your average middle class american, willing to take a handout wherever they can get one.
I mean for all we know Obama offered to help him out, maybe all his distant relatives out, and they said thanks, but no thanks.
Really it's all speculation at this point as to the relationship he has with his extended family. Since they barely comment about it.
Really though this shouldn't change anyones opinion about Obama, but of course it will, unfortunately.
