Skip to comments.Free Obama's White Grandmother
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?
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.

Hiding Miss Daisy.
Is that one of the Jackson Five in the middle?
The number at Dunham's apartment in a nondescript Honolulu high rise has not changed in more than a quarter-century.
What happened to Barak’s mom?
Why didn’t she raise him?
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.
I think Obama’s mom died of cancer in her early 50s...

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?
I believe I read somewhere that Obama’s (white) grandpa is a World War II vet... Can anyone verify that?
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.
Sorta like Mariah Carey and Halle Berry do with theirs.
She’s nearly 90 years old. Leave the woman alone for Pete’s sake.
