Obama's excuse for a visit to grandma's house doesn't want to pass the sniff test...
Claim 1: Obama to visit sick grandmother
US Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama is cancelling campaign events this week to visit his sick grandmother in Hawaii, an aide says.
Claim 2: Honolulu lawsuit filed to open Obamas secret birth records
(HONOLULU, HI)(October 17, 2008) Obama nemesis and author Andy Martin filed suit in the First Circuit Court in Honolulu today seeking a court order to open Barack Obamas secret birth records.
One of Obama's most controversial and contentious issues that he has allowed to fester for years is the question of his birth certificate, says Martin. "Obama has posted at least two versions, maybe more, of a 'certificate' on the Internet.
I want to see a certified copy issued by the State of Hawaii, not one issued by the State of Obama. Why Obama won't allow direct access to his birth records is beyond me. But the closer we get to discovering the truth about Obama the more we understand why he is terrified of that truth.
What is Obama hiding? Frankly, after being in Hawaii and conducting our first round of interviews, we think we have a clearer picture of what Obama is concealing, and why. We have more research and interviews to conduct before we can announce our opinions.
In the meantime, I filed a lawsuit against the State of Hawaii to require the state to open Obamas birth records. The Governor and Director of the Department of Health are named as defendants.
The case has been docketed as number 08-1-2147-10 and assigned to Circuit Judge Bert Ayabe.
There was a story on here last night about Obama’s “mystery man”. I tried a search but it didn’t work out. Some ex-cop from Chicago.
just noticed a lot of 10/20's on the threads related to this topic
A little tear gas will work wonders.
I happen to believe that Obama was born about 3 BC and that his parents were Joseph and Mary. I think he had a twin. Aliens abducted him in the year 34 AD and then released him in 1996 in Illinois. That would explain why he know nothing of Ayers and why his past is so vague.
Now if you take a weeks vacation in August to visit Granny why did you only spend ONE HOUR at his GrandMa’ apartment. That is very strange or was he estranged from Granny?
Obama pays visit to grandmother in Makiki
After delivering a campaign speech, Sen. Barack Obama’s first stop on his Hawaii vacation was a visit to his grandmother’s Makiki apartment, where he also lived during his youth.
Obama — escorted by Secret Service and accompanied by a few campaign staff and a pool of reporters and camera crews — arrived at about 4:10 p.m. yesterday and spent an hour with his 85-year-old maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who helped raise him. He was not accompanied by his wife, Michelle, and two daughters.
Obama waved to a few residents and reporters as he got into the elevator at the Punahou-area apartment building.
One woman who lives in the building had two books authored by Obama in hand and watched as the elevator doors closed. She waited patiently outside the elevator.
“I just hope I can still get an autograph,” said the woman, who did not want to give her name.
Another resident and her two sons awaited the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee with two red and green leis, then later went up in the elevator.
“They probably let her go up and give the leis,” the woman with the books said. “She’s giving something. I want something.”
But a man identified as the building owner said the Secret Service did not allow her to present Obama with the leis. The woman with the books did not get Obama’s autograph, either.
Dunham, a retired Bank of Hawaii vice president, still lives in the same apartment where she and her husband helped raise Obama, who attended nearby Punahou School.
Obama’s half sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, is his only other living relative left in Hawaii.
Obama’s arrival at his grandmother’s apartment was kept fairly low key with a few Secret Service and two blue-and-white police cars escorting him.
But a police helicopter circled the area prior to the Illinois senator’s arrival.
A Secret Service agent, who arrived in advance, tried to shoo away local media, saying he was not making a stop there.
What is wrong with the “typical white lady” that he has to go see her?
The Mystery Man thread:
It sounds as good as “I’m suspending my campaign to go back to Washington and work on the bailout.”
Well aware, FRiend.
I agree. It's either the birth certificate issue or a play for sympathy 2 weeks before election day ("McCain is attacking poor Barack while he's visiting his sick grandma").
I just don't trust the guy (nor any democRAT these days)... he's up to something...
wierd stuff... very wierd stuff... chills
That is the first thing that hit my mind when I heard about it.
“Grandma may have to take one for the team.”
You are funny! LOL!
Yes. It is a PR stunt.
He knows Wright is coming back, along with Cone and Black Liberation Theology. It is all so he can divert saying how can I hate my white granny, and MSM can feign outrage at McCain saying mean things when the granny is about to die.
I knew there was going to be some scheme to wriggle out of Wright and Cone. This is it.
I say hit him hard and be relentless, and make it clear that anyone who gives a pass or excuses Obama for his 20 years of Black Liberation Theology
is supporting those repulsive divisive, anti-American and anti-white Church beliefs.
If it wasn't why is he waiting till thursday to go see her?
