Free Obama's White Grandmother
News Max ^ | March 28, 2007 | Andy Martin

Posted on 02/28/2008 9:13:39 AM PST by george76

If anyone else running for president locked his granny away and refused to allow her to be seen, would the media complain?

You betcha.

But America's media have supinely allowed Barry Obama to pretend he has no white relatives. He has paraded his step-grandmother in Kenya, who never saw him until the 1980s, as his "granny," and locked the grandmother who actually raised him away in a closet.

Now, the Chicago Tribune reports "the Obama campaign declined to make [his white grandmother] available."

Is she sick? Not apparently. Bedridden? Hospitalized? Not apparently...

What a disgrace.

And like whimpering puppies the media do not protest, complain or demand access.

We are afraid to confront Obama's reality, so we pretend that reality is not there, even though it is staring us in the face. Anyone remember "Miss Lillian?"

We finally smoked out a picture of Obama's sister in the Chicago Tribune. She had said she was his "adviser" but refused to be photographed. Did she plan to enter the White house with a paper sack over her head?

Madelyn Dunham raised Barry Obama. It was probably her money that got him admitted to the prestigious Punahou School in Hawaii and paid his fees. Her efforts were formative... And yet Madelyn is being hidden away.

All because she is white and Barry Obama is a "black" candidate for president.

What a lie. What hypocrisy. What cowardice. And this man wants to sit in the Oval Office?

Ironically, locking Madelyn away is going to hurt Obama more with African-Americans than with whites.

Whites delight in drinking Obama's Kool-Aid. Reason and reality will only gradually descend on them.

Yes, this could have legs. An urban legend about the white grandma who made her grandson the first black President. Maybe a quick book or a TV show.

What is the secret. Is Grandmother gay? Is she a Communist? Is she a Republican? Must be some reason type of blog.

My reaction to that photo is that the grandparents who raised him both look like decent and caring people. Why is he so ashamed of their skin color?

Interesting... this is the first time I've ever seen these pics of his grandparents - the ones who raised him. I've seen plenty of pics and video on TV of his overseas relatives...

Barak Obama has been an interesting candidate to follow during the campaign.

Born to a Kenyan father and an American mother, he grew up in colorful and culturally diverse surroundings which has made me curious why his campaign seems so monochromatic.

In that picture I see two proud grandparents and an arrogant so and so who already thinks he’s better than the folks who raised him.

Two years after the divorce, when her son was five, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, a Muslim Indonesian oil manager, and moved to Jakarta, Indonesia .

Soetoro and Dunham had a daughter, Maya Soetoro-Ng. Four years later Barack (at the age of 10) was sent back to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents and attend the Punahou School.

Dunham and Soetoro divorced in the late 1970s...

Ann Dunham died in 1995 ... at the age of 52

In an interview with the New York Times, published on April 30th, Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama’s younger half sister, told the Times, “My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.

I assume Maya thinks of Obama as a member of her family — ergo?

Dan Hale, the 6-foot-7-inch star center of the 1979 Punahou basketball team, said Obama's depiction of Hawaii as a place where race really mattered hardly resonates with him.

"I was certainly oblivious to a lot of what he references," Hale said ... "If you look at our teams, that year I was the only white guy on the starting five.

You had three part-Hawaiians, one Filipino and me."

This isn’t going to make a nickel’s worth of difference. The MSM has renered him immune to criticism of any kind by subtlely playing the race card. If Obummer is elected, we will have a president we can’t criticize without being branded as racist or neanderthal.

What I'd like to know about them is why in the world they named their daughter "Stanley"!

That's a cruel thing to do to a girl, kind of like naming your boy Sue.

One would think that Barry was both a member of her family and a Muslim. (at least at that time)

no. my guess would be that her second, muslim, husband didnt like the reminder of the first muslim husband (young Barrack) around. The grandparents then gave him a home raising him in Hawaii.

The grandparents are to be commended for their sacrifices...and I will gain respect for BHO if I ever see//hear such a quote. As to keeping granny ‘hidden’ she is around 90 years old...maybe she just isn’t up to all the fuss.

I understand she's quite elderly and doesn't want any publicity. I respect that. I also realize why I stopped reading anything at NewsMax years ago.

Stanley Dunham worked on oil rigs during the Depression. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he signed up for service in World War II and marched across Europe in Patton's army. Madelyn Dunham went to work on a bomber assembly line.

Nukes are not all that popular so I am not sure dismantling them is going to upset too many people.

He could turnaround and say that Ronald Reagan was the first one who started that process.
