It now appears that the Obama- Soetoro-Ng -Robinson clan is getting closer, as Barry begins bringing his relatives into Washington, probably to get some of this stimulus money before its all gone. Might as well gather the clan for one big porkulus picnic. I’m wondering when Barry’s aunt, you know, the one here illegally- the one who was supposed to be deported before the election, is also summoned to live in the White House along with Michelle’s mom, and everyone else in Hussein’s extended family.
WASHINGTON — The far-flung Obama clan is coming closer together. President Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, is moving her family here from Hawaii and will spend the next several months living in the nation’s capital, White House officials say.
The extended stay means that the siblings will live in the same city, at least for a while, for the first time in years.
Ms. Soetoro-Ng, who has given up her job as a high school teacher in Hawaii, has a book contract and a new baby. Her husband, Konrad Ng, a professor at the University of Hawaii, will become the scholar-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution’s Asian Pacific American Program here next month.
Wow! new jobs, and mo’ money! All you have to do is be related to Hussein by no more than six degrees of separation, and you too can be eligible for a cushy, treasury – draining job in the Great Socialist’s Administration. Witness all the people from Chicago, everyone from Hussein’s speechwriters to the gal who got his coffee (does he drink coffee, or is he one of those effete tea drinkers?)- all have uprooted themselves in order to better suck on the government teat. Can all of you Chicagoans say, “Nepotism?”— oh; so you pronounce it as “business as usual”- interesting. I just call it wrong, but then I am honest, so I can see the cultural divide here.
“Maya made many trips to Chicago and elsewhere throughout the campaign, and she and her brother have a great relationship,” said Alan S. King, a lawyer in Chicago who is a friend of Mr. Obama.
Mr. King said he believed that the president would be “very happy to have Maya and her family close by.”
Katie McCormick Lelyveld, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama, said Ms. Soetoro-Ng was unavailable for comment on Thursday.
In a recent interview, Ms. Soetoro-Ng, 38, described the first lady as a “big sister” figure in her life. And Ms. Soetoro-Ng, who campaigned on Mr. Obama’s behalf before the presidential election, has often spoken warmly about her relationship with her older brother, which she says has remained strong even though they have often lived far apart.
When should we expect Hussein’s half- brother to arrive? I would expect him to become the “African Studies” Czar, if current trends continue, but why stop there? I am sure that if Hussein wanted to, he could reach back into both his black ancestry AND his white ancestry, and proliferate the population of the Czars, who have now, because of their number, been classified as a “Minority”, eligible for affirmative action, as well as several “bailouts”.
Perhaps, when Hussein, his family, and his cronies all have had their fill at the trough, they might be nice enough to allow us, the people in the rest of the U.S., to have some scraps.
Since it is, after all, OUR money, that would be a nice gesture.

Bobby Jindal was elected as Governor of Louisiana and will succeed Kathleen Blanco who decided not to seek reelection after she was widely blamed for the state’s slow response to Katrina. Jindal is 36 years old and becomes the nation’s youngest governor as well as the first non-white male to be elected as Louisiana’s governor since the reconstruction era.
Jindal lost to Blanco in the last election and part of his campaign was based on a “buyer’s remorse” theme. Additionally, Jindal promised to clean up the corruption in Louisiana. This will be no small task a Louisiana politics is loaded with corruption. Two millionaires tried to prevent Jindal from winning. One of them a state senator and the other a businessman. It would be interesting to find out why they spent so much of their own money in an attempt to defeat a guy who vowed to rid the state of corruption.
I believe Bobby Jindal has his work cut out for him but he seems to have his head screwed on tightly and has a plan. I wish him well and I also caution him to watch his back. Deeply rooted corruption knows no bounds when it comes to protecting the crime that helps few flourish while others are victims of mismanagement. One only needs to look at New Orleans to realize that there is a lot to clean up, both as a result of the storm and as a result of the corrupt politics that is embedded in the fiber of the the body politic.
Perhaps his election signals a new path in Louisiana politics. If they can break up the nepotism the good people of Louisiana will be well on the road to success.
Good luck Bobby.
