OBAMA INTERVIEW: LETS TALK ABOUT GRANDMOTHER'S HEALTH (CBS)

OBAMA INTERVIEW: LETS TALK ABOUT GRANDMOTHER'S HEALTH Wed Oct 22 2008 18:09:23 ET

CBS EARLY SHOW co-anchor Harry Smith conducted an exclusive interview with Sen. Barack Obama earlier today in Richmond, Va. Among other topics, the senator told Smith why it’s so important for him to take a break from his campaign to see his grandmother. “My grandmother's the last one left,” Obama told Smith. The senator added, “She has really been the rock of the family, the foundation of the family.” Obama didn’t get to his mother before she died. “Yeah, got there too late,” he says. “You know, I mean, it was sort of like this, in the sense that she had a terminal illness. We knew she wasn't doing well, but you know, the diagnosis was such that we thought we had a little more time and we didn't. And so I want to make sure that I don't make the same mistake twice.”

OBAMA SAYS HE DOESN’T WANT TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER THAT HE MADE WITH HIS DYING MOTHER – IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ON “THE EARLY SHOW” ON OCT. 23 ON CBS

Did he call her injury a ‘typical white person’s hip injury’?

Or is he in Hawaii to try and and continue to stymie Andy Martin, who is scheduled to relaese info about Obama at 8:30 EST?

If Obama has nothing to hide, then why is he fighting Andy Martin so hard?

BTW, isn’t this the same woman he threw under the bus by calling her a “typical white person?”

Some love there...

I thought Obama mentioned how hard it was to watch his mother fight over paying her hospital bills when she had cancer. He made it sound like he was with her then.

Why? He already knows the time of death and the cause: suffocation by pillow.

It's rather odd of Senator Obama, to just hang around and do interviews, for days, after announcing the grave illness of his dear grandmother, and his need to suspend his campaign in order to rush to her bedside.

Wasn’t in Obama who said, in one of these TV ads I saw, that his mother fought very hard against the health insurance companies before her death?

If so - and if that fact were true - wouldn’t you think that a son would be beside his mother during her time of need? Especially when she’s so stressed out by the insurance company policies?

Very interesting...........

Another indicator of how he would run the White House and Presidency, I bet...

I can just see it now, should America get hit by terrorist attack....Obama will carry on a few press conferences and then after a few days, he’ll decide to deal with the problem or go see where the attack took place.

I find this utterly incomprehensible. A man of his means not going to see his Mom before she passed away. God help us.

I break with the thread, and respectfully approve of the guy doing something human, taking time for his ailing grandmother. My deepest repects to him for considering her need for his consolation at this time. Having grand children of a mixed race, I know it isn’t easy for either of us, and I hope the two of them can have some quiet time, as he will need to embrace the pain that is shortly to befall him.

He already did that with the Russia and Georgia crisis!!! (Not a terrorist attack per se, but a crisis nonetheless)

Like most concur this does not pass the smell test. He does not want to miss the chance to say “goodbye” or whatever and yet he has time too do his best Steve Urkel impersonation on Ellen?!
If he told me the sun was shining I would look for the flashlight.

What's to break from? We all wish his Grandma well.

What we don't find admirable is his not going to see his dying Mother. In fact I find it incomprehensible. So now he says he will correct that mistake. Well, the reports say his Grandma is gravely ill and Barack is dancing on TV.

Explain that to me.

Ugh, the thought of Obama anywhere NEAR the Office of Presidency is such a daunting, scary and skin crawling thought.

Gotta regain some of that pop-culture buzz. Can't have Sarah Palin pushing him out of the limelight. Grandma can wait, apparently. This is more important.

You see Harry, I spoke to my grandmothers doctor and it appear after I threw her under the bus, she sustained a hip fracture. No under my health plan I guarantee coverage to those with traumatic bus injuries. John mccain on the other hand wants to give those thrown under buses a “tax break”

Forgive the cynicism, but this move tells me he is losing ground with women in his internal polling data. Nothing this close to the election happens for benign reasons. He could just state “family reasons” and go right away, but it is planned 4 days out and he is doing TV interviews on the subject furnishing us with a sob story.

Sorry Zero, you politicized the move yourself. Now we have no choice but to view it in that vein. He was just in Hawaii for a week two months ago. The McCain camp needs to start dropping hints about where this race really is. The drive by’s sure as hell aren’t going to do it.

Over the pineapples and through the cane
To Grandmother's house is my goal
Though I fly like a bird this is all so absurd
Should I bring a green bean casserole?

Arough the next bend to the county clerk's den
To get some fake proof of my birth
I'll not leave empty-handed and poor Gram will be stranded
God, she lives at the end of the earth..............

If she is so sick what in hell is he doing campaigning? When I was told my mom was failing..doing poorly I dropped everything and got there and 11 days later she was gone..So this jackass “doesn’t want to make the same mistake again”? He doesn’t give a flipping rip or he would be there with the kids in tow to see their WHITE great granny before it is too late..but nope gonna wait until tomorrow.
Not buying any of this.

“My grandmother's the last one left,” Obama told Smith.

What about all those relatives living in that shack in Kenya? What about Jeremiah Wright? What about Tony Rezko, Rashid Khalidi, Ayers and Dohrn?

They're all still with us!

And my question is “Why aren’t Michelle and children going?” I guess the answer is apparent to all. They were after all in a particular church for 20 years.

The Grandmother is the Rock of the Family, but they haven’t had a single picture taken together in 25 years?

She is the Rock of The Family, but he never brought the kids to Grandmas, the last time he was in Hawaii?

He doesn’t want to wait until it’s to late, so he is leaving Thursday, after announcing on, was it Monday or Tuesday, that she is “gravely” ill.

None of this makes sense, unless it’s a ruse.

His handlers want a face to face about his Socialism slip. They’re starting to think Obama’s believing the many ads their paying for and forgetting who “owns” him.

Either that or they told him an attack is coming but they don’t know where - somewhere in the continental US - so Obambi is heading for safe ground. Grandma was a good excuse to get the hell out of dodge and save his own butt. He’ll leave the wife and daughter in the U.S. - if they get hit, he figures he’s a shoe in with sympathy - worth the risk.

Man, I feel evil even thinking this stuff. I pray each night that this man is not as evil as I think he is, but there’s just too many things about him we don’t know - no college scores, no writings, birth certificate, and $200 million in $200 donations? Tooooo much.
