Update: 16 August 2012 – See another view point on this story …
A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George. He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick with a chest condition. He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the medical bills. Since George was at the hospital I asked him to let me speak to a nurse, and she confirmed that George’s son was indeed ill. So I agreed to send George the money through Western Union. He was profusely grateful. But before I hung up I asked George, “Why are you coming to me?” He said, “I have no one else to ask.” Then he said something that astounded me, “Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”
Actually, George has a real life brother who just happens to be the president of the United States. (George Obama is the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr.) George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world. Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.

Obama is a “don’t do as I do, do as I say” liberal – that is he is willing to tell you how you should give your money to the government so they can “redistribute the wealth” to those less fortunate.
So what’s up with Obama – a millionaire living the high life – not supporting his family?
His aunt lives in near-poverty in public housing …
Zeituni Onyango, born May 29, 1952) is the half-aunt of United States President Barack Obama and half-sister of Obama's late father Barack Obama, Sr. She is referred to as "Aunti Zeituni" in Obama's memoir Dreams from My Father.
Onyango visited the United States multiple times since 1975, returning to Kenya each time until the 2000s (decade). She came on a temporary visa in 2000 along with a son who had been accepted at a college in Boston. Commercial databases show she received a Social Security card in 2001, indicating she was legally present in the country at that time.
Onyango was an asylum seeker when she applied for public housing in 2002. She moved into the apartment, run by Massachusetts authorities, after back surgery made walking difficult. A BHA official said that the agency was never notified of a deportation order that had been issued Beginning in 2003 she lived in a South Boston public housing project, according to Boston Public Housing Authority (BHA) officials. <Source>
