There’s never been a story that more clearly shows King Obama’s true character than the tale of his half-brother George Obama.
Dinesh D’Souza recounts the story on Fox News’ website.
George Obama lives in the slum called Huruma in Nairobi. He survives in a shack on just a few dollars a month.
When his young son became sick, George Obama needed $1,000 to pay the hospital bill. Instead of calling his multimillionaire brother, the most powerful man in the world, he called someone he had only recently made friends with. That was D’Souza.
D’Souza recounts the phone call asking for help and agreeing to wire the money by Western Union.
He says that before hanging up, he asked George, “Why are you coming to me?”
The answer is shocking.
George Obama told D’Souza, “I have no one else to ask. Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”
Now I understand how distant a relationship between half brothers can be. I have half brothers myself.
But if one of my brothers needed help, I’d try to help him in any way I could — and I do not have deep pockets in any sense of the phrase. It’s just what you do for family.
The story is doubly embarrassing to a president who likes to get on his high horse and pretend he’s the champion of poor people against the callous rich. His massive healthcare plan is his pride and joy, his “proof of authenticity.”
One of Barack Obama’s favorite phrases is “We are our brother’s keeper,” playing on Cain’s question to God, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
Perhaps it’s appropos that King Obama’s central message is inspired by Cain’s words after killing his brother Abel. Obama’s entire political philosophy centers around envy and taking from those who are perceived to have more. He thinks he is painting a picture of generosity, but Obama’s worldview is fueled by jealousy and rage.
His healthcare package likewise does nothing to make a dent in the ranks of the uninsured and has yet to serve any patients, but it is already adding to businesses’ labor costs, driving up consumer prices and raising taxes to swell government coffers.
No wonder then that he can spout political platitudes about helping the poor while his own brother has to beg for help with paying medical bills from a stranger.
