Obama dances before heading off to Grandmother's side
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | October 21, 2008 | Salena Zito

Posted on 10/21/2008 6:39:25 PM PDT by Salena Zito

ABC News Political Reporter Jack Tapper writes on his blog Political Punch that Sen. Barack Obama taped an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that will air tomorrow on her show.

“I regret to inform you that he did, indeed, dance,” pens Tapper, “As he has in the past.”

Is he dancing on her grave yet?

After all she was a “typical white folk”.

After his mother abandoned him ... and dad ran off to dsposit sperm elsewhere ... his WHITE grandparents stepped up and raised him. He had more benefits than many of us here.

He is just demonstrating the fact that he is about to "shuffle off to Hawaii" to see his very ill grandmother.

I mean who doesn't stop and dance before visiting a gravely ill loved one? /sarc

Ellen DeGeneres is a lesbian - Michele allowed him to visit her and maybe he even kissed her ... YUCK!

he doesn’t have to be there until tomorrow to stop the court ordered release of his “birth Certificate, or lack there of. It seems his “visit” is timed just in time to beat the judge’s release. Barry is trying to stay one step ahead. After all, he is the Anti-Christ, so maybe he wasn’t born after all.......

Speculation is that he’s really going to Hawaii to burn down the Records Building. Then he won’t have to produce his birth certificate. Seriously though, I think he’s really going for the sympathy angle. If his Grandmother is really in bad shape he should go right away. He shouldn’t wait until he’s done a few more campaign stops.

I think his trip serves two rolls.

1. He gains whatever sympathy vote he can squeeze out of the mushy headed undecided vote (a smarmy move if you ask me.)

2. He can get to Hawaii just in time to prevent anything from getting out about the nature of his REAL birth certificate.

Does anyone have that clip of Clinton at Brown's funeral where he's yucking it up till he sees the camera then suddenly acts like he's crying?

This dancin' FOOL Obama reminds me of the Clinton expose' except in reverse.

One minute his beloved grandmother--who raised him--is on her DEATHBED, and the next minute he's on ELLEN yucking it up.

That's to be expected since he's 50% white and only 6.25% black.

This whole trip is about his lack of a birth certificate. It isn’t about his grandmother who bankrolled his education

Obama is stumbling. His plan to take-over the networks next Tuesday night will fall flat, and is so “Soviet” in style. A cameo on SNL the weekend before the election, likewise, is a bit flippant that close to 11/4. Whatever is going on in Hawaii after his dancing is done will require serious inspection.

i understand they can be, but we were led to believe yesterday it was much more serious. my mother is in her 70s and did great, considering. my aunt in her late 60s had a new knee, again, recovered beautifully. is there a risk? sure. any time you have surgery you are at risk. AND if the docs thought her grandma was on deaths door, he would not announce 4 days before that he was going. would you? just saying.....
prayers for obamas grandma. i hope she comes through well.

You know this is some cold A$$ piece of crap. I know that if the woman that pretty much raised me was sick I wouldn’t schedule a “date” to see her while I was dancing with some lesbo. This creep has no heart.

One of the funny parts of that clip is that the guy that's talking to Clinton doesn't break stride in what he's saying...because as far as HE knows, Clinton is still in conversation about something WAY other than Ron Brown's passing.

Well said, ladyvet. Can you think of anything MORE trivial than delaying getting to his surrogate mother in order to dance some little gay dance with a frivilous, meaningless daytime TV talkshow host?

I agree with both of your points. I was scanning a thread on FR earlier and Andy Martin thought it was interesting that 0bama was waiting to fly in on Thurs, since Andy is leaving Wed night.

Rush Limbaugh was reporting this morning that she broke her hip, has been out of the hospital for a week, and BO’s sister has been with her caring for her. As to why this is suddenly such a crisis that he must remove himself from the campaign trail for 2 days with only 14 days left until the most important day of his life? Something doesn’t seem right about that.

Something doesn’t seem right about that.

She broke her hip, was hospitalized last week, is "gravely ill," and yet a Honolulu Advertiser profile piece, printed yesterday, has no mention of her dire medical predicament?

Obama's tutu a female pioneer in Hawaii banking

Yep, something doesn't seem right. According to her brother, she's already had a hip replacement. Did she break the other hip? Her brother didn't know. Why are we only hearing about her injury now. Has anyone seen any press reports of her dire medical situation before today?

Lol, first time I ever thanked someone for talking about an ‘ugly’ post!! And it is. I think it was a Mr.Bean gif. I put the head on but too much work to make it look nicer.

Good song idea and Obama’s ‘running over’ to grandma in the next day or two. To silence her or get that COLB??
