I am unsure what this has to do in regards to Obama the president or Obama the person.

Obama the person. He's rich and has a poor brother. Someone will turn it into something.

I'm thinking about it and I guess the OP thinks that maybe Obama should help this guy out?

I don't know.....wouldn't Obama get criticized if they bring this guy into the country and treat him in a special manner?

It's lose-lose.

SOme brothers aren't worth helping. I have an uncle that proves this.

This brother gets brought up every election. I really don't have much to say regarding it politically. Could the President help his brother out more? Maybe, but it states in the article his brother actually gave up a better life to live in the slums to help poor people. So, it seems he chooses to live where he lives even though he likely has the means to get out of it. I can respect that.

The good thing for his brother is every 4 years his story gets MSM attention and he gets to spotlight the slums and possibly raise some money for a good cause. I'm sure he gets some money for the interviews and photos.
