I was thinking today about people in need and even if you don't believe in the religious meanings of Christmas, it's a good holiday to think of and help others in need.

Last year, George Obama was living in a sheet metal shack in a slum in Kenya and when last heard from, was still living there in poverty. Let's remember Barack Obama's brother this Christmas and others in need and suffering and maybe what we can do to help them out.

I thought you were the party of personal responsibility?
ANYthing to blame Obama for something.

Your comments are very christ-like, aren't they.
Do be proud of your hatred, I'm sure your jesus would be.

Well isn't the President inviting him to Hawaii? He's renting 3 houses for$4k per night each or $12k per night total or $288k for 2 weeks for just the rental and a Christmas tree and a few bags of Tarro chips the landlord threw in as a "welcome" gift. As a taxpayer who is paying for this I think a lot more should be thrown in than a few bags of chips for a rental charge of $288k. I'm sure by the time all is said and done the vacation will have cost us taxpayers in the $Millions. If the Obamas entertain they way they did at Thanksgiving with 50 guests, I'm sure (don't you think?) he'll invite his brother.

Hatred, there is far from any hatred in that post. I think Jesus wants us to think of and help those that are suffering out there in the world.

Let's not forget George this Christmas.

I'm sure he'd appreciate anything you could provide. Maybe you could invite him to your house?

No, there won't be any links to support this. Other sources have already been posted that show that Obama pays for his own vacations. It's just the security and such that is afforded to every POTUS that get picked up by the taxpayers, and they would be with him regardless of where he is.

I'm sure we all have friends and family who are in poor financial shape. There is only so much we do for them because it's a bottomless pit. We all know it.

Not according to George:

Quote:
a CNN correspondent caught up with George Obama and interviewed him on camera. When asked about the brouhaha about his economic situation, he said that the media reports made him angry, adding:
George Obama: I was brought up well. I live well even now. The magazines, they have exaggerated everything ... There are some challenges, but maybe it is just like where you [the reporter] come from, there are the same challenges.
