Film shows Obama's half-brother in slum


www.news.com.au

Barack Obama's slum-dwelling half-brother in Kenya says he needs no help from his powerful sibling, in an election-year documentary that is highly critical of the US president.
"I think he has a family of his own," said George Obama in a park-bench interview with conservative author Dinesh D'Souza that is a highlight of "2016: Obama's America", which premieres this week in Houston, Texas.
"I'm a member of his family, but I'm over-age, so I help myself," the younger Mr Obama said in a four-minute clip that appears on the website of the Hollywood Reporter.

I am not sure what to make of this. Is it promotional to support the presidential campaign or is it negative and working against him?

I guess things are done differently in the US for elections but it seems like Obama is clutching at straws.

Or maybe it is a good thing and shows cultural diversity and promotes the image of a president who is caring and thoughtful.

Is it true that from the get go Obama admin has had an agenda and does it really sit with the American people?

Or does this sum it up?

"He has embraced a kind of anti-American third world ideology and that's anti-colonialism." as quoted by Dinesh D'Souza

And by all accounts there was a competent Bush sibling......seems they come in matched pairs!!

Given the OP says the documentary is "highly critical" of Obama, why does someone think it is pro-Obama??

He gave alot of speeches where he lied out of his hind quarters.

It's just sad that it's taken so many people 4 years to realize it.

LOL this is so dumb if it is in an Obama bash film. His half brother flat out said he didn't want Obamas help because he is a grown man.

Not to mention the article says his brother isn't poor and runs a charity in the slums.


The film clip does not mention that Mr Obama grew up in a well-to-do part of Nairobi, before he ventured toward its slums, ultimately working with a charity he co-founded to help young people trapped in poverty.

Dinesh D'Souza is a highly strung, highly critical Obama opponent so unless a pro-Obama group beat him to the punch with the material, I'm pretty sure this is meant to be anti-Obama.

This is politics...Look at it like a movie.The first third of the movie is building the character...

e.g. - Obama spends money; does not care about family; only cares about wall street; does not understand the economy; etc; This is the foundation.

By the time America goes to vote, the straw will be there to break the back.

Campaign managers win elections
