Good grief…Senator McCain has not called him “every name in the book”; has been talking extensively about the economy, as well as Obamanomics. And regarding that “I share my peanut butter and jelly sandwich” line….

This looks to be evidence to the contrary:

Today, Barack Obama’s long lost aunt has been found living in poverty somewhere far worse than the slums of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi.

Yes, Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango is living in public housing in South Boston:

Barack Obama has lived one version of the American Dream that has taken him to the steps of the White House. But a few miles from where the Democratic presidential candidate studied at Harvard, his Kenyan aunt and uncle, immigrants living in modest circumstances in Boston, have a contrasting American story.

Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.

His “Uncle Omar” faired even worse:

A second relative believed to be the long-lost “Uncle Omar” described in the book was beaten by armed robbers with a “sawed-off rifle” while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of the city. He was later evicted from his one-bedroom flat for failing to pay $2,324.20 (£1,488) arrears, according to the Boston Housing Court.

It’s up to you to feed, clothe, and house these Obamas, America.

Because when it comes to “spreading the wealth around,” Barack Obama obviously wasn’t talking about his.
