ITA, not surprised though. Is it disgusting and outrageous, yes indeed. But none of this should come as a surprise to anyone.

Obama's aunt can stay in U.S. until 2010 - White House- msnbc.com
This article quotes the President as stating he was unaware of his aunt's illegal status. It constantly amazes me at how much about his family and close personal friends he is unaware of. I know he is supposed to be very intelligent and perceptive, but c'mon now. How could he not know his aunt was illegal? Is the is the same aunt that the press found before the election, during the birth certificate sealing period, that refused to talk to the press until after the election was over? If so, why did nobody vet her in relation to Obama?

I am not trying to start a fight here, seriously I am not, but could Bush, Reagan or Nixon gotten away with this many "I was unaware" events in their first terms of office without the whole world inspecting every aspect of their lives and every word they ever uttered in the past for inconsistencies??

I voted for Obama, and I am beginning to wonder what the heck is going on. For me, the true test will be the immigration issue. Obviously, few of his appointees are paying their taxes. I once owed the IRS, and they emptied my checking account.

Why are we supporting this woman? Would any of you go to a foreign country and "over stay" your visa and expect them to support you? I just do not get the "audacity" of these people.

Isn't that the understatement of the century!!! Truthfully, I'm most disappointed by Obama's failure to deal with the imigration issue. So far it seems that he's only trying to pander to the illegals in an attempt to build up his voting bloc for 2012. As far as his aunt is concerned...If she's illegal, deport her! The president is responsible for setting an example for the rest of the nation. I won't be counting on him doing the right thing this time though.
