John Kerry: I Was For More Troops in Tora Bora While I Was Against Them | Main | Director Of ClimateGate Unit To Step Down Temporarily

Obama's Aunt: President Bush "is my No. 1 man in my life because he helped me when I really needed that help."

Ouch, that's going to leave a mark.

...Onyango reserved special words of kindness for former President George W. Bush for a directive he put in place days before the election requiring federal agents get high-level approval to arrest fugitive immigrants, which directly affected Onyango. The directive made clear that U.S. officials worried about possible election implications of arresting Onyango.

She said she wants to thank Bush in person for the order, which gave her a measure of peace but was lifted weeks later.

"I loved President Bush," Onyango said while moving toward a framed photo of Bush and his wife standing with Barack and Michelle Obama at the White House on inauguration day. "He is my No. 1 man in my life because he helped me when I really needed that help."

Of course, the AP buried those three paragraphs at the very bottom of a 20-something paragraph article.

Does President Present offer her any help like Bush did? Well, not so much it seems...

...Onyango, the half sister of Obama's late father, said she has exiled herself from the family after attending Obama's inauguration because she didn't want to become fodder for his foes. Obama and his family have not reached out to her either, she said.
Class/Crass. There's only one letter difference between those two words, but a universe of meaning.
