Barack Obama: Senator I-Don't-Know

Obama and Unpleasant Revelations
The Standard Obama Response:
"I Didn't Know"

Bill Ayers
Aunt Zeituni
Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Zeituni Onyango

Barack Obama's aunt, who attended Obama's U.S. Senate swearing-in ceremony, was discovered living in a Boston slum. She's living in the USA illegally in public housing.

Living in poverty, she still had the means to make a donation to her nephew's campaign--which was returned when the story got publicity.

Obama's response?

"Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed."

That was the Obama campaign's stock answer to any unpleasant news which makes its way into the Mainstream Media--a feat in itself.

The Associated Press found that Obama's aunt had been instructed to leave the country four years ago by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya. The woman, Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUHN on-YANG-oh), is living in public housing in Boston and is the half-sister of Obama's late father.
--Obama says he didn't know aunt's illegal status

The answer has been used before and seems to satisfy any MSM curiosity about Barack Obama's family and friends.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright

  • "No no no! God damn America!"

  • "The U.S. of K.K.K.A."

  • “We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye.”

  • “We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” [September 2001]

  • “Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!…We [in the U.S.] believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God.”

  • “Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

  • “The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.”

The above are famous quotes by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who for 20 years was Barack Obama's pastor--until Wright became politically inconvenient.

A Wright sermon called "The Audacity to Hope" inspired Barack Obama's remarks at the 2004 Democratic Convention and provided the title of Obama's second book.
--10 Things You Didn't Know About the Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Obama's response?

"I didn't know about all these statements. I knew about one or two of these statements that had been made."
--Just What Did Obama Know About Wright's Past Sermons?

Bill Ayers

[ABOVE: Bill Ayers in photo published on September 11, 2001]

Bill Ayers, was one of the leaders of the Weather Underground, a group that bombed the Pentagon and police stations. Ayers remains convinced that he "didn't do enough" during his bombing days.

Barack Obama worked with Bill Ayers for years. Obama was hired by Ayers. Obama helped Ayers distribute millions of dollars to many radical recipients. Ayers held one of the first fund-raisers for Barack Obama's Illinois state senate race.

When news of Obama's association and friendship with Ayers surfaced. The Obama responses were disingenuous.

"Just one of the thousands of people I know."

"Just some guy from the neighborhood."

Obama has lied repeatedly about his relationship with the unrepentant domestic terrorist. He spent years working for Ayers, promoting Ayers’ causes. Even CNN won’t buy the Obama line any longer.

Obama's latest responses to the issue of Bill Ayers?

"When he went he certainly didn't know the history [of Ayers' domestic terrorism]." --chief Obama strategist David Axelrod to CNN - arguing for the first time since the story surfaced early this year that Obama was unaware of Ayers' past.

There have been other instances of Barack Obama pleading ignorance about unpleasant information once its reported (Father Michael Pfleger, for one).

Which may lead some to affectionately refer to Barack Obama as "Senator I-Don't-Know."
