Found in a rundown Boston estate: Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango

Barack Obama has lived one version of the American Dream that has taken him to the steps of the White House. But a few miles from where the Democratic presidential candidate studied at Harvard, his Kenyan aunt and uncle, immigrants living in modest circumstances in Boston, have a contrasting American story.

Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.  More from the Times OnLine

So much for leading by example.  Obama is all for “redistribution of your wealth” to pay for welfare programs and government gimmies to people who don’t earn them, but his half brother lives in a hut while his aunt lives in the slums…  Why aren’t Barack and Michelle lifting THEM out of their circumstances using their own money?  Think about it – he won’t even help his own relatives yet he will force you to support people you don’t even know…
