She is probably suffering from “thrown-under-da-bus-itis.”

I really really really want his grandmother to be o.k.

That way I won’t feel guilty celebrating his defeat on Nov 4.

*gasp* Obama's grandmother is *BONG!*

What did he say?
He said Obama's grandmother is flying a kite.
No, I said Obama's grandmother is *BONG!*!

(I bet both Brooks and Wilder are supporting Obama. *sigh*)

I had heard that his grandmother was “gravely ill”. If so, why is he waiting 3 days before going to see her?

0bama's grandmother and 0bama's Certificate of Live Birth.

If 0bama was trying to play Little League baseball he wouldn't make it to the first game.

Osteoporosis????? Thst is NOT a deadly disease. Means you ahve very frail bones... I wonder if she broke something, that can be rough... I am two stages behind that, Osteopenia. Shattered an elbow because of it.... but this in and of itself is NOT a deadly disease, certainly would NOT be emergent, life threatening, or something you would die of. Either its some other medical condition or Barry has other reasons for going to Hawaii.

I too, hope she gets well.

And we also are excited to see the defeat of one of the most racist men ever, to run the race for our beloved White House!

Vote!!!!! McCain/Palin 2008!!!!!

Was that video supposed to be of today’s visit?

Watching it was like watching a campaign video.

That’s video from when he was over there late in the spring or early summer....the family vacation to Hawaii. And yes, not surprised it looks like a campaign video. Word is that only he (BHO) visited his grandmother for about an hour during that week long vacation....and NOT Michelle nor the girls. No doubt there will be a video of this upcoming visit on Friday (flying over on Thursday, visit Friday, fly back on Saturday)...for the camppaign of course! (BARF!)

All the video told me was Grandmother has osteoporosis.Yet the reporter and friend are talking about her in the past tense.

I will add my prayers for Grandma.

High Noon in Hawaii: Barack Obama and Andy Martin collide in the Aloha State
Chicago crusader Andy Martin stands on the verge of “taking down” the Obama campaign. Martin says Obama is using his grandmother as a pretext, and that Obama really fears the secret truths about him that are about to be disclosed.

(What’s up with that? Obama IS in Hawaii afterall)

No, osteoporosis is not itself life threatening.

However, at age 87, just the shock of breaking a hip and knowing that it will never be of use to you again very often means the victim loses hope....and simply withers.

I've seen it happen to my own grandmother who simply went to bed and talked to shadows for the next six years.

Granny Dunham sounds to be a pretty sturdy lady and I hope this rare visit from someone who owes her a great debt will help her spirits.

What he does while not at the hospital remains up to conjecture and I'm not so hopeful in that regard.

Not to be cynical as I wish the woman well, but I get a strong feeling that Obama is dragging his grandma out from under the bus to use her as a prop for his campaign. Please follow my thinking. Obama announces on Tuesday that he is suspending his campaign to attend to his sick grandma but continues campaign appearances Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. He then flies to Hawaii on Friday to see his sick grandma but is scheduled back on the campaign trail on Saturday. Some suspension of his campaign, don't you think?

Simultaneously with the announcement of the sick grandma, here in Florida and who knows where else, new Obama TV commercials start running on Tuesday featuring the Dunham family with old pictures of his grandma patriotically working in an aircraft factory. Could Obama’s running to grandma's side, not immediately mind you, but after three days of campaigning and running grandma's photo on TV, be a less than one day side trip to help his campaign?

How much TV coverage of this trip do you think will be done by the main stream media? Wall to wall coverage would be my guess. Am I being too cynical or am I spot on in my analysis? What do you think? Is the Hawaii trip, three days after the announcement, a photo op in support of the new commercials or out of genuine concern for the poor woman with tire tracks all over her body?

First off, your analysis is a good one - and I too am cynical as to why Obama has to travel to Hawaii to see grandma when she's ‘resting st home’ and out of the hospital. My first thought would be that I'd go visit her as soon as I heard that she's landed in a hospital - and if Obama would've been like-minded, he would have left for Hawaii right after the debate with McCain last Wed. night.

But, that did not happen, and instead he went to VA, MO and FL. It is certainly possible that with the high average population of senior citizens in FL, that this could have been a calculated move.

I'm willing to bet that many of the ‘seasonal’ residents of FL (the ones from the Northeast traveling south for the winter months) are voting twice — once in their home state, and then again in their second state of FL, where they spend half of the year. Some of these folks are Dems, so Obama’s campaign is doing right by running these ads now, which is around the time that these folks start going south.

I'll call this new voting block ‘GERI-CORN’ — a mix between multiple ACORN registrations and GERITOL.

Why aren’t Michelle and the children going along to visit the “gravely ill” grandmother???

Good question. You’d think he’d be on the next plane if his grandma were truly “gravely” ill.

But then, October 21 is the 30-day time period for which Berg’s petition to disqualify Obama rolls. Maybe he went to Honolulu to hide out and Michelle will bring the kids over later in the week and they can hide out together over in the island paradise of Kanai.

So, if today is the deadline for Berg’s petition and the judge rules against Obama, it might take a couple of days for the paperwork to catch up. So two days from now, Obama might be an unqualified candidate.

Then what? Would the dems be stuck with Biden and move Hillary into the #2 spot? Or does Hillary claim the #1 spot because she was the #2 vote-getter?

Good grief! The dems can make a mess out of the simplest things.

Well, yeah, but Nancy Reagan broke her hip and has been in and out of the hospital and is at home recuperating now.

As you well know breaking a hip at that age usually does not have a good prognosis medium or long term.

I wish the lady well and will say a prayer for her.

And let's hope Mrs Dunham reacts as well,

And hope there is a tail on him and his henchmen the whole time they're on the island.

This cannot be a coincidence that Obama is going to see his sick (white) grandmother 10 days before the election. Look for a photo of him embracing her. She may be ill but the timing is very suspicious.

Prayers for Madelyn Dunham. May she recover and live many more productive years.

I still wonder about the timing of Barry's arrival in Hawaii. Why didn't he curtail his politicking the moment he heard she'd broken her hip? Why politic for a couple more days and then go see her on the weekend?

Somethings up. I contend he's going to admit he's not a US Citizen and pull out of the race, giving McCain the landslide. He didn't answer Berg's lawsuit and did admit he got it. No word that he asked for an extension. So he has no rebuttal and is in effect admitting to not being a Natural Born Citizen.

But I wonder how his narcissistic personality can handle the new set of circumstances. Something's up. We'll have to wait to find out what it is.

Yes, my first thought was that - had I been Obama - I’d go visit Grandma as soon as I heard that she had landed in a hospital> He should’ve left for Hawaii right after the debate with McCain last Wednesday night.
