Thought we had heard them all? Thought it couldn’t get any worse? Not so fast for after all, we are talking about a Democrat.
First it was that Barack Obama never heard any hate-G-D-America sermons while his butt was parked in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s pews for 20 years and barely knew terrorist Bill Ayers. Then it was pass the Stimulus and Obamacare quickly so that unemployment would never rise above 8%, the economy would quickly rebound and the budget deficit would be cut in half in four years. And don’t forget those oldies but goodies about how you can keep your health insurance plan and doctor if you like them, period; and premiums and the oceans will be lowered. Well, it has been cooler outside.
Last week JoeForAmerica revisited Obama’s 2009-2012 lie that his mother had been denied insurance coverage by Cigna during her last illness to help demonize private health insurance companies to try to get votes for Obamacare and re-election. Monday we learned that Bill Ayers, not B. Hussein himself, wrote President Obama’s first biography.
And now there is the matter of his Kenyan uncle:
President Obama acknowledged Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than two years ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.
Their relationship came into question Tuesday at the deportation hearing of the president’s uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed for the first time in testimony that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation. On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe in 2011 that it had no record of the two meeting. This time, press office staff members asked the president directly, which they said they had not done in 2011.
“The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.”
Onyango Obama, President Obama’s Kenyan-born uncle, arrived at US Immigration Court for a deportation hearing. The White House said Onyango Obama’s immigration case was handled “without any interference from the president or the White House.”
