Is This Any Way to Treat Your Deceased (When Will Barack Obama Bury Madelyn Dunham?
debbieschlussel.com ^ | November 12, 2008 | Debbie Schlussel

Posted on 11/12/2008 12:13:37 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

It's now been over nine full days since Madelyn Payne Dunham--Barack Obama's thrown-under-the-bus "typical White" grandmother who raised him--died.

Yet, still no funeral. That's a pretty odd--not to mention, disrespectful--way to treat a grandmother you claim you love and who raised you, regardless of whether you are President-elect of the United States or just an average citizen. Regardless of whether you told the world she was a "typical White" racist.

It was understandable when Dunham first passed away at about 11:00 p.m. on November 2nd that Obama didn't rush back for a service and burial for his grandmother. He was in the closing days of a Presidential election campaign.

I’m sure they counted her vote. So he’s through with her.

There was a statement made earlier, that he won’t have any time for this until sometime in December.

I was first willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt but now...I don’t know. It is troubling that he hasn’t made it a priority to give his grandmother (who helped raise him while his mother was away) a proper burial. It seems cold and heartless.

Honestly, couldn’t he and his sister schedule a small family service, fly to Hawaii, have the service, and be back to the mainland the next day to further bask in the glow of his election?

I think the woman has been dead and buried for weeks, even before he had to "rush" back to her side...you remember, it was around the same day his birth certificate was sealed by the Governor of Hawaii. Probably just a coincidence, right?

Anyway, the affairs of the "office of the president elect" cannot be superceded by a old, "typical white person."

Well unless all her children are dead, you wouldn’t expect a grandchild to arrange the funeral services. Was her daughter (Barack’s mom) the only child she had?

yes, it would seem they could do this. However, I agree with you: he is heartless. And, he will have no feeling except power when he commits the Marxist acts he has long dreamed of when he assumes office in January.

God rest his grandmother’s soul; God have mercy on all of us.

Has anyone noticed that in both of those pictures, the grandparent has their arm around him, but he doesn’t around them?

Just curious.

And that woman looked pretty aged 25 years ago...

But seriously, when was the last photo of her taken? Taken with him?

Maybe he didn’t want to share them.

I find it very very coincedental that she died the day before the election. (Hawaii time put it on November 3)

I’m just saying...

Don’t know how relevant this is, but a funeral director told me black people are very slow about having funerals. He’s had to keep several bodies in storage for weeks until the families got around to the funeral.

I think the poor woman was on life support, and it was cut off, in the late evening of November 2nd, myself. I think this was authorized when Obama was there. Who had power of attorney?

Maybe she's being cremated, so there's no rush. My uncle's ashes travelled cross country for a few weeks.

(Gosh, I still think that's morbid. I don't know why. :( )

His mother was cremated and her ashes spread somewhere in the Pacicfic. Maybe grandma has been cremated. No hurry to do anything with ashes.

Why should he treat her body in a good manner? He didn’t care about her before. He is being consistent. Look at how he has ignored his brother and his aunt. What did any of you expect? He is a complete narcissist.

I saw a larger image of the pic with him and both grandparents on that bench. It was taken when he graduated from Columbia, before he met Michelle, yet he is wearing a ring on his left hand. Like a wedding band. Interesting.

Is anyone keeping a list of unusual things and events around Obama? Clinton had his death list, Obama needs a list. So far, there are a few unanswered questions, among them: his grandmother, his birth certificate, no medical data, school data, segments of history, etc., and he's just getting started.

She was already dead when he travelled to Hawaii to make sure his real birth certificate was under lock and seal.

Obama and the Black Widow just waited to announce white granny’s death until the day before the election when it could be used to garner the most sympathy votes.

She is dead and he is done with her for now.
But that doesn’t mean white granny won’t be voting a straight democrat ticket in future elections.

I had a friend in school who wore the wedding band of her father (her parents were divorced, father was a drunkard). I’ve known others who wore the band of a deceased parent. I don’t find it unusual.

Is this the grandmother who was racist? Give the guy a break. He’s probably going through an ambivalent grief process..

Why would he share old photos of he and his grandparents and not ones after he was an adult? He certainly isn’t camera shy and there are other more current photos of her.

Delayed funerals seem pretty common in Hawaii - maybe partly because extended family is so important and the cost involved in getting here is large, so a lot get scheduled even a year after the death (might be a cultural thing too - I see it more amongst the Filippinos).
