Who Is Grandma Toot? [Barf Alert]
Yahoo! News ^ | October 21, 2008 | Yahoo!

Posted on 10/21/2008 5:31:26 PM PDT by justiceseeker93

Barack Obama's campaign announced Monday that he'd be taking a few days off the campaign trail to visit his ailing grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, in Hawaii.

Dunham, 85, practically raised Obama while his mother studied abroad. She's the "white grandmother" he mentions in speeches, a "trailblazer in her own right," the BBC wrote, "having risen from a lowly position to be one of the first woman vice-presidents of the Bank of Hawaii."

...............

He explains in his book, "Dreams from My Father," "We call my grandmother Tutu, Toot for short; it means "grandparent" in Hawaiian, for she decided on the day I was born that she was still too young to be called Granny."

Typical MSM spin piece - touchy-feely. Another MSM cover-up for "the Messiah"? In reality, Obama may be headed to Hawaii for legal reasons that have nothing to do with his family. A suit has just been filed in the state Supreme Court there, asking for release of Obama's birth records from the state's archives. Those records, or lack thereof, may be relevant to Obama's constitutional eligibility for the presidency in terms of the "natural born citizen" clause. In other words, Obama may not have been born in Honolulu, contrary to what he has claimed in his biography throughout his entire public life.

“This chick” may know where the skeletons in Obama’s past are buried, which is why she has not been allowed to talk to the media.

She may know about the sexual predations of Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist mentor of Obama, as well as about his drug use.

She may know about the communist-sympathizer activities of her husband and herself in Washington State before they moved to Hawaii, and possibly in Hawaii as well.

She may know about Obama’s admitted drug use, radical activities, and other things that happened in college(s).

She may know about Obama’s contacts in New York and Chicago, including those with Ayers and friends.

She may too much.

Which may lead one to think that Grandma herself may have been a bit pink in her time.

Yes, he told the whole country that his beloved grandmother had racist vibes because she had expressed apprehension about an encounter with a black panhandler.

Obama’s real reason is to go bribe someone in the Hawaii government to plant a fake birth certificate in it’s archives.

Besides, since dear old granny is so sick, why doesn’t he ever take his own wife and kids to see her before she croaks?

He NEVER lets them see this great, wonderful person he normally despises when he isn’t campaigning.

Tonight one of the “allstars” on Brits program suggested that Obama could diminish the claims he is an “elistist” by this trip to HI to see his poor granny. So, I guess we can expect Obama to use his dying grandma for political gain.

because we all know Obama the great was born talking, and his grandmother didn't want him calling her "granny" because she was too "young" (what, 45?)

If Grandma is so important why aren't Obama’s daugthers going to see their Grandmother?

I wonder if the girls even know she is white?

Also, what is the relationship between Grandma and Michelle?
I doubt they see eye-to-eye.

JMHO.

Probably because all Obama has to do is produce some people who say he was born in Hawaii. It’s a waste of time.

Hope she has a food taster and round-the-clock body guards . . . hope the “stupid party” dogs him at every move while in Hawaii . . . someone should see what he’s doing . . . wouldn’t be surprised to have a “legit” b’certificate plopped into their records . . .

You mean someone who can access Hawaiian vital records for him? ... Inserting fraudulent documents is just as illegal as taking documents from the controlled archives. The problem is catching such behavior, and then even if caught, if it’s a democrat the consequences are no more than a slap on the wrist.

If grandma is so ill, why is he waiting until Thursday to go see her???

Seriously, I hope she recovers nicely and that God blesses her! But I keep hearing how Barry is such a wonderful person? If he is so special, why wait until Thursday to go home.

I would drop everything and would have flown home yesterday.

Last I heard, a broken hip isn't fatal.

My mother was hospitalized with a broken hip on her 85th birthday and was 92 last May.

I think this is a publicity stunt to make him look less narcissistic.

I keep asking myself, ‘would republicans cooperate in a massively significant fraudulent insertion of a false COLB if the argument was that race riots would follow revealing the ineligibility of their littel Marxist squirrel?’ I’m afraid the clinton years proved they would be complicit. How much pressure can a Republican Lady governor in Hawaii endure???

Exactly. Grandma was so important to the big O that he spent a total of what - 90 minutes - with her last summer? After not seeing her for YEARS? And MO and girls never even set foot in her condo. After Obama & MO claimed that they wanted the girls to "spend time with Grandma".

It's painfully clear that ole Grammie is used for whatever serves Obama at a given time. Such crap!

The people wouldn't be good enough. Let him produce a bona fide Hawaii birth certificate - which he has yet to do, even though it would clear up this litigation and the ongoing Berg case in Philadelphia.

Therefore, it is not rash to infer that he most likely does not have a Hawaii birth certificate because he was not born in Hawaii.

Not to be morbid, but I’ve been thinking that if granny Toot should unexpectedly pass away, I imagine the propaganda press will get on their high horse and demand that McCain-Palin not run any negative advertisements for the next two weeks. Hmm ...

Kuku? Judging by your screen name, you must be of native Hawaiian descent, so I’ll assume you are correct. Of course, if “the Messiah” speaks, the MSM will never correct his error.

This was the racist white woman Obama called mom who earlier in the campaign he had thrown under the bus along with Wright.
I'm sorry she isn't well, but I am convinced something is about to break regarding Obama and he wanted off the campaign for a few days. (Just a feeling)

I may be too cynical these days because of all the stuff pulled — “Obama girl”, “fainting” at Obamessiah events, youth-cult-chant videos ..

But this smells like a political stunt by Obama.

Perhaps I’m wrong ... on *this* one. The above are ALL stunts, though.

Its all about the birth certificate for sure. He is in a panic about it. Do you suppose: Ailing granny is a good reason for Obama to suspend campaigning, BUT cratering economy and Congress deliberating $750 billion bail-out bill is not a good reason for McCain to suspend? Its Oct 21 and still no birth certificate. Suppose BHO was born in Kenya - imagine the meltdown and how that news would play out on the streets. Democrats would have to renominate another candidate. Some people have already voted.
