He must have found Obama's Kenyan birth certificate. Either that or he informed BHO that there's a village that's still looking for their idiot and to please call home on the White House phone.

Half-Brother can you spare a dime?

Barack Obama's Half Brother Discovered in Hut in Kenya
Wednesday August 20, 2008

Barack Obama's youngest half brother has been living in a shanty town on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, the Italian edition of Vanity Fair reports.

"No-one knows who I am," George Hussein Onyango Obama, 26, told the magazine. "I live here on less than a dollar a month."

George's shack – which measures only 6 feet by 10 feet – features football posters and a photograph of the Democratic presidential hopeful from a newspaper.

"I live like a recluse, no-one knows I exist," said George, who has the same father as the Illinois senator.

"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related," he added. "I am ashamed," he said of the way he lives.

George, who recently enrolled in a local technical college, has met Obama twice: when he was 5-years-old and in 2006 when the senator visited Nairobi.

"It was very brief, we spoke for just a few minutes," George recalled of the 2006 encounter. "It was like meeting a complete stranger."

In his autobiography, Obama described George as a "beautiful boy with a rounded head."

Gration said:“I am very proud of my 35-year career of dedicated and honorable service to our great nation, leading at all times with integrity first and the highest ethical standards,” he said.

That could well explain why he and the Obama Administration had significant differences.

If he's honest and shows integrity, those are definitely 'differences' from what Øbama and his administration stand for.

Why are we wasting tax dollars on an Embassy in Kenya? Who cares what happens in Kenya?
We need to close most Embassys everywhere. Now that we are a second rate power and are beginning to adopt Cuban style socialism we need the money for ObamaCare.

no... Anyone with any real brains will go to other countries where they can actually make a living practicing medicine.

The rest will decide to go into veterinary medicine because that's where the real money will be. No joke.

So, soon enough we'll have 30 million more American patients (and 20 to 30 more illegal patients) with a lot less doctors than we have now - and nobody in medical schools...
