(CNN) - An uncle of President Barack Obama was arrested last week in Framingham, Massachusetts, for allegedly operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, police Lt. Ronald Brandolini told CNN on Monday.
Onyango Obama was arrested on Wednesday after failing a field sobriety test, Brandolini said.
Cue ranting from the right wingers/birthers who forgot the previous President was a DRUNK with a DUI.
ho boy. These comments are going to explode.
Please ... please ... let me be the first to point out the obvious!?! This has absolutely nothing to do with President Obama! It was a relative who made his own choice, did something reprehensible and needs to suffer the consequences. Anyone who casts stones at the President on this, should first check the structural integrity of their own glass house!
Oh no, not that! Can't they come up with a document stating it isn't true?
Take his license away. When will people ever learn not to drink and drive..other than that.
it will become another reason for opponents to scrutinize the president even though its totally out of his control. its called senseless politics
What no mention that he's an illegal immigrant !! Way to go CNN
Deport him, not only is he an illegal he has now been caught committing a serious crime.
Deport him, or does he get amnesty because he knows people in high places?
He is a dirtbag that shows no respect for our laws.
Get him out of here
This will become another reason for opponents of president obama to scrutinize him even though this situation is totally out of his control.
If this is the worst he has to endure from crazy relatives – he's better off than most of us.
Before the Obama-haters start spewing; let me remind them that illicit materials fell a bit closer to a couple of Presidents – – somewhere between numbers #40 & #43 – mentioning no names.
So what? Geez....
Maybe he was taking his nephew's advise and just trying to get out of the path of Irene?
And this is relevant how?
Obama should invite his Uncle to the White House for a beer and tell him he shouldn't drink and drive as long as he is President after that who would care.
My niece that lives 3 states away, that I never see, was arrested once for the same thing – Is that supposed to reflect somehow on me?
Amerc. ian people will
Get mocked out of obama and biden. 2012
It was NOT the president so get over it.
i'm waiting for the right wing hill billies to blame Obama for this one...let the hatred start spewing
Oh yeah? Well, Rick Parry's uncle made a test tube goatbaby with a goat imported from Afghanistan and he named it Chuckles.* It's the secret basis for all of Jim Brewer's goatboy skits.* What does that say about Parry? Hmmmm?
* Not intended to be a factual statement.
Err is Human, forgive the divine.
Amazing, even when Obama isn't directly involved he's still an inept, fumbling rookie. It's like Dems elected him just to see what they could get away with.
What does this have to do with the President? Seriously, if his Uncle gets a DUI for driving how can the President's influence have any change on this outcome? Did President Bush have any influence on his two drunk daughters, no? Let it go and let this guy deal with the bigger problems in this country than to worry about nonsense likes this.
"According to a a federal law enforcement source who spoke on condition of not being identified, Onyango Obama was not legally in the United States and has been previously ordered removed from the country. His case is now going through the immigration process, the source said."
Now THERE'S a shocker. How long before this case is broomed?
Why is this political news? And who cares, it's not the President who got arrested.
Hard working taxpayers are supporting this illegal immigrant who is causing crimes in this country.
Why does Obama expect us to foot the bill for his family to stay here in the USA illegally.
This man wont even take responsibility to even support his own family who are illegal aliens sucking off the government teet.
This is an issue only to make voters look for the president's reaction to it. If this uncle gets deported, it proves that Obama is willing to uphold the law and not give his friends and family special treatment. If he doesn't, then it's a real issue.
