The hypocrisy of it all!

Does anyone but me see the hypocrisy in this?

The Global Poverty Act (S. 2433) , a bill sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, would “require the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty...” The bill, if signed into law, would cost American taxpayers 845 billion dollars, which comes out to more that $2,500 for every man, woman, and child in the United States.

So, Senator Obama wants to tax the American people for the purpose of reducing global poverty; most people know this. What most people don’t know is that Senator Obama has a half-brother, George Hussein Onyango Obama, who lives in abject poverty in a shack in Kenya.

Now, here’s the hypocrisy: Senator Obama knows of his half-brother’s existence - he mentioned him in one paragraph of his autobiography, calling him a "beautiful boy with a rounded head”; furthermore, he visited him during a 2006 trip to Nairobi, and he evidently did nothing to help relieve his brother’s poverty! George Obama still lives in his shack.

The Italian edition of Vanity Fair quotes George Obama: "No-one knows who I am...I live here on less than a dollar a month." The Senator’s brother said that he was embarrassed by his poverty and, therefore, rarely admits to being related to the U.S. presidential candidate. "If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed.”

Barrack Obama wants to spend 845 billion tax dollars to reduce global poverty, but he does nothing to help relieve the shame and embarrassment felt by his brother living on a dollar a month in Kenya?

Explain that one to me.

Oh, that's different. Obama has no trouble sending your money and my money to help people, but heaven forbid he should send HIS OWN money!

This is just like the village the rest of Obama's Kenya family lives in. He promised to help the school there when he visited in 2006 and they named the school for him, but he hasn't sent a penny since. To the left, charity is what you do with tax money.
