RUSH: ‘A Boston Housing Authority director says Barack Obama’s aunt [Aunt Zeituni], a Kenyan woman who has lived in public housing for five years, is an ‘exemplary resident’ and only recently did anyone know of her connection to’ Obama. Folks, this sickens me! This poor old woman who is living in her ‘Slum, Sweet Slum’ is called an ‘exemplary resident,’ and nobody knew until yesterday when the UK papers got on it that she was related to Obama. God Almighty, help me! I am so deeply sickened by this statement. This woman lives in squalor! She lives in a place no human being should be, not in this country. She doesn’t even have a decent cane to help her limp around her slum. Her slum was created by liberal policies and politicians, her slum in Boston… I mean, she’s Barney Frank’s close neighbor. Barney Frank, the subprime mortgage molester, the champion of all things liberal. This twisted bureaucrat in Boston calls her an ‘exemplary resident’?

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: ‘A Boston housing authority director,’ that means the slumlord, says that Obama’s aunt, Aunt Zeituni, has lived in her ‘Slum, Sweet Slum’ for five years! He says she is an ”exemplary resident’ and only recently did anybody know of her connection to the presidential contender.’ This housing authority guy, this slumlord, is not flabbergasted about her living conditions; he’s flabbergasted that she’s lived there for five years and he didn’t know who her relative was: Barack Hussein Obama. This is how they look at everybody. And, by the way, let’s go back to Obama’s book, shall we, ladies and gentlemen? A portion of his own book, reading from his own book: Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. Listen, my friends.

OBAMA: If Jane or Zeituni ever felt ill, if their companies ever closed or laid them off, there was no government safety net. There was only family, next of kin, people burdened by similar hardship. Now I was family, I reminded myself. Now I had responsibilities.

RUSH: Well, you haven’t met ’em, old buddy, old pal. There’s no safety net for Aunt Zeituni? I think there is a safety net. It’s called a Boston slum! ‘Slum, Sweet Slum.’ She’s lived here for a whole bumbling of years; she’s lived here for five years. Your aunt, Obama, has been living in a slum for five years. Your brother is living in a hut in Kenya, and he says, ‘I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.’ This kind of stuff matters to me because there’s so many people in this country who think Obama is going to take care of them. I don’t have… Well, I don’t think I’ve got the audio. Once again, I have this humongous audio sound bite roster. It is great, and I want to try to get to it, but there are people who have been interviewed on the street who are saying, ‘Obama is going to pay for my gas! Obama is going to keep me in my house!’

There are people who believe this, that’s Obama trying to dial back the expectations now. (interruption) No of course it’s not true, Snerdley. What, you think he’s going to keep you in your house and fill your gas tank? There are people who actually think this. You can find them out on the street if you walk out there with a microphone and ask them. Well, that’s exactly right. Snerdley has a rare but brilliant point. ‘Why wouldn’t they think that based on Obama’s campaign?’ Why wouldn’t they think that? That’s exactly right. They’re not thinking it, but they’re feeling it. If they were thinking about it, they’d know it’s not possible. But here’s the point, and I know — I know — that many of you, many of you in this audience are Obama voters and I know that many of you are — probably, not all of you, Democrats and liberals but some of you are — that are going to vote for Obama. Don’t I think that it’s meaningful? Do you think it’s relevant here? Play sound bite number one again. Here is Barack Obama reading his own book.

OBAMA: If Jane or Zeituni ever felt ill, if their companies ever closed or laid them off, there was no government safety net. There was only family, next of kin, people burdened by similar hardship. Now I was family, I reminded myself. Now I had responsibilities.

RUSH: Well, you’re not meeting them. His Aunt Zeituni is living in a slum! Folks, Obama has lots of money. Barack Obama has. Ask yourself: If you had lots of money would you have a brother living in a tenement someplace, in a one-room hut that you would not help? Unless, of course, you’d already given the brother countless dollars and made every effort to help the guy help himself and after that he didn’t help himself. ‘Okay, pal. You want to live in squalor? It’s up to you.’ But you have a real-world experience, you have a real-life experience with Barack Obama and two relatives (that we know of) living in absolute squalor, and he is the man of great compassion, the man of great caring and concern. He’s going to unify everybody and he’s going to eliminate poverty — except in his own family!

Either that or he’s going to have us do it, after he raises our taxes.
