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.
This is just another ploy to try to prevent McCain from attacking him....and the media will be all teary eyed over their messiah.
FWIW, just read on several news sites that it’s an hour last night and then spends the day with her today. Like I said, fwiw.
What a guy - grandma, can you spare an hour!
WELL...isn’t that just TOOOOO WEIRD???? If you were going to visit a relative across the ocean on his/her death bed, you would only stay an hour??? Something definitely stinks here folks....
Something is fishy. I also heard she broke her hip.
Oh well, anything that concerns Obama is suspect.
Probably so the media could rustle up some "let's feel sorry for Barak" support.
That’s what I heard. And hip breaks are serious for that age group. Hadn’t heard anything about cancer.
Smart money says he is either:
That’s been my thought since I first heard it. Picking up the Docs (doctored docs).
The article says he plans to spend most of the day with her today. It also says that the family spent a week there earlier and that visit included daily visits to Grandma. (I wasn’t aware of that)
Ok... so he really DID go to see his grandmother.
Now the press can leave...
What are you all still doing here?....
I said you can leave....
YEah... i’ll be with my Grandma ALL DAY!
When I went to visit my grandfather that was dying of empysema I dont remember needing my team of lawyers to consol him...and Hawaiin born...SINCE WHEN?!
What UTTER fraud.
You need to spend time with dying grandma, so you leave wife and kids at home, get to HI, and visit for an hour before heading back?
Something stinks. And it has to do with a birth certificate.
how much did this PERSONAL trip cost us tax payers?
I resent having to pay Obama’s way to see his dying grandmother AND to cover up his birth certificate fiasco.
Here’s the deal. Obama had to ask her face to face, if she would say anything when the news of Frank Marshall Davis being his father, leaked out.
First he asked what she would say, then he pleaded with her to keep remaing silent.
Alot of things surrounding this don’t pass the smell test.
I read on another thread that the wife and children didn’t visit with the grandma last visit (vacation) either. Unless she’s got alzheimers or dementia to the extent that it might be frightening to the girls, I’m not buying.
..........this story doesn’t make any sense other unless she is unconscious and he came to say his final goodbyes.
Maybe he needed to do a few lines somewhere....
Actually the article says he will spend the day today with her - the one hour visit was because of the time he arrived last night...... (dammnit don’t make me defend this jerk again! ;^)
Lenin once said that a lie repeated often enough becomes the truth.
That is why the media constantly has to say "Hawaii born" and "Christian" whenever mentioning the name of their Black Racist messiah.
The COMMUNIST media tells lie after lie after lie unashamedly in order to promote Obama.
Hopefully gramma has health care insurance, or Obama will be forced to watch her die without care.
How long does it does it take to say, "Typical-White-Grandma, get better reeeeal soon. Buh-bye!"
(5 minutes later in the running limo: "Now let's get the h*ll to hall of records!!)
now being cared for in her Honolulu apartment by Obama’s half sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng.
An hour is a long time to spend on a “typical white person”
Hussein has never said, that I can find, that he is an American citizen. He has said that he was a ‘citizen of the world’.
He is not a US citizen. He knows the jig is up.
He hasn’t had a photograph taken with his dear old Grandma (who raised him) in 25 years. He is NOT close with her, as he represents.
He didn’t bring his children to say one last goodbye to their great-grandma. And his dear, sweet wife didn’t accompany him to visit grandma.
He traveled to Hawaii for a one-hour visit. And then he left Hawaii, even though his grandma’s birthday is Sunday.
Something doesn’t add up. Surely he didn’t think he could pull off getting elected while he was inelible.
But then, he did get elected Senator from Illionis!
Can anyone tell me if one must present a birth certificate before one takes the bar exam? Surely with all of the attorneys in the country, someone can get a look at Hussein’s application to take the bar.
Maybe she's just protecting the children from typical white people?
