Posted on 10/24/2008 8:30:24 AM PDT by george76
Obama, who arrived on his campaign aircraft around 7:20 p.m., immediately traveled under police escort to the Punahou-area apartment of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who is reportedly gravely ill with cancer.
After an hourlong visit, the Hawaii-born senator left for the Hyatt Regency Waikiki.
Obama expects to leave tonight and return to the campaign trail in Nevada tomorrow

Where's his wife, his kids, etc? One would think that the entire family would be present, no?
After all the hubbub about his visiting his dying grandmother and he stays for an hour then leaves???
Cancer? I thought she broke her hip?
I thought she fell and broke her hip (not uncommon for women in that age group).
NOBODY flies to Hawaii for a one hour visit.
So he campaigned yesterday in Indiana before he left, and he’s back home on Friday. So he basically did NOT take two days off the campaign trail. He’ll probably be at a rally tonight somewhere.
So it was only an 1 hour visit and not really 2 day visit as they advertised. Crooks and liars.
I hear it's lovely in Kenya this time of year.
I like how they had to tell us that he is "Hawaii-born".
Heard him on the radio. Said he was going to do some chores. Most undone chores I know of take more than an hour.
UNLESS this had something to do with his missing birth certificate.
Make sure you reporters follow all of the decoys. Something doesn’t smell right about this visit.
I hate to be cynical, but is she is “gravely ill”, why did he wait 3 days after announcing he was leaving for Hawaii? And why is she in an apartment and not a hospital bed?
It makes no sense to me. When my paternal grandmother died of cancer, it was a fairly fast thing, and she barely was able to hang on until my Dad could visit her one last time. This was a matter of a day, not a week.
“Somber 0bama Returns Home”...
Thought he was going to Hawaii......what’s he doing in Kenya /s
She must have broken-hip cancer.
An hour with his dying grandmother and now back to the campaign trail. CALLOUS CAD!!
Fox just reported that she is not expected to live.
Photo op to remind white people of his roots. Nothing more. Nothing less.
