Author Dinesh D’Souza reveals today in a blog post at that President Obama’s brother, George, turned to him for money to assist with his son’s medical bills.

D’Souza recalls how he met George Obama, who lives in Nairobi, in February while conducting interviews for his film, “2016: Obama’s America.” D’Souza says he wired Obama $1,000 after he pleaded, “I have no one else to ask.”

    Read the article, it’s fascinating.

    Quite a story. The President shouldn’t ever talk about being a brother’s keeper anymore.

    I am sure Obama would have helped but he was probably too busy with all his fundraisers and golf. I am sure he will get around to it after Nov when he has more time on his hand.

    Dinesh needs to invest about $50 and set George up with a simple website where he can sell pdf copies of his book for $5. Just let a few conservative bloggers know the site is up and I’ll bet George would end up with more money than even he could spend in one lifetime.

      That, is a stupendous idea. I’ll see if he has a twitter account.

    So, Obama’s brother asked someone else for money. How is this the Presidents fault? Do you know the workings of their relationship, and how much money his brother has asked for in the past? I’m sure he’s hit him up more than once for money. We don’t know the conversation between the brothers, if there even was one. I love how you conservative Obama haters jump on something when you don’t even know the whole story.

      BO is President of the United States. He makes some money. Per UNICEF the average income per year of a Kenyan is $780 per year. Michelle spends more on a pair of shoes. Why isn’t BO sending his brother money? He is “His brother’s keeper” afterall. As he asks us to do the same with people who are not our blood, why isn’t he “spreading the wealth” to his bro?

      If you read the article you would see that he said he had no one else to ask. I don’t care what the workings of their relationship, if a family member needs money for health care you help out if possible. THAT is what conservatives do. Not demand that someone else pay for it.

      Jumping on something when the entire story isn’t known? Kind of like what you’re doing now?

    Bought D’Souza’s book, will be a great read when I finish Fast & Furious. True humanitarian until O’Bambi

      Is Fast & Furious any good? I’m considering getting it, along with D’Souza’s book when I can.

      • Orangeone

        It’s excellent and backed up with evidence.

          Okay, thanks!
