The story about Barack Obama knowing and living with his illegal immigrant uncle Onyango Obama is making the rounds in the blogosphere, but it’s doing so for the wrong reasons. Look, the White House lied about the two Obamas having any sort of relationship. So what? There’s already a well-established pattern of bullshit coming from this crowd. This is small potatoes compared to the lies about Obamacare. Here’s Allahpundit quoting the Boston Globe:
His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation.
The story here is that this guy was having immigration problems all the way back in the 80s and he’s still here, even after the drunk driving conviction. He was fighting deportation long before anyone knew who his nephew was, and he’s been in trouble ever since, but somehow this guy was never put on a plane back to Nairobi.
That’s a broken immigration system.
