HONOLULU (AP) -- President Barack Obama ended his nearly two-week Hawaiian vacation on a somber note Monday, taking his daughters to visit his grandfather's grave.
The president's motorcade wound through the island of Oahu's mountainous terrain late Monday afternoon on its way to National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl.

Any ‘Clinton on the beach’ moments to be seen?
Biting my tongue in light of recent threads
Will he visit his other relative’s graves in Kenya?

I visited Punchbowl National Cemetery on my way to Japan in 1958. Our ship docked in Honolulu for a day and a half. Took a Gray Line Tour, which included Punchbowl. There are many heroes buried there, including Ernie Pyle. Can’t imagine why a Dunham would be buried there. Is that cemetery open to just anyone?

There were so many corpses spinning in that place that it’s a wonder the whole graveyard didn’t just flip over.
There’s common and then there’s dead common, common.
Gramps was a honky commie.
leave it to the AP Obama jock-sniffers to humanize this POS president. He’s probably having an ice cream summit at the graveyard.
I’m currently reading “With The Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa” by Eugene B. Sledge. And watching the HBO
Mini-Series “The Pacific”, which the producers used Sledges book as source material for.
The thought of O’Mama sliming the Punchbowl makes me want to wretch. The battle scenes in the the mini-series are utterly
It’s a wonder he could be bothered to give up his golf long enough to drive by the grave. I wonder what movie they were watching in the limo?
Cap the entire debacle off with a tearjerker.
For the Americans, the Pacific was by far the most vicious war and the toughest on the men.
Why is this news?
If released by the White House, then it is self-serving drivel not worth publishing.
If not released from the White House, then it is a moment of respect that should be private. This is still America and even communists should be allowed to offer their respects in private.
Either way, it was very out of bounds (agenda driven) for the press to report on this.
never misses a moment to splash his regime in front of us. The “look at me, aren’t I just like you?” crap......
he is a traitor and a liar and his activities are slated to make people see WHO he isn’t, not who he is! I can hardly wait until “what goes around.....”
Very “touching” photo-opp there Barry...where were you when your grandmother died a couple of years ago...I hear you kept her on ice for a month or two before she was finally buried. Didn’t hear about you attending the funeral. I mean, she only RAISED your sorry, heartless ass.
The Punchbowl is open to all veterans. While most of the burials are of veterans of the Pacific War, Korea, and Vietnam; other conflicts are represented. Stanley Dunham served in the European Theater, not in the Pacific in a non combat job, but a WWII veteran nonetheless.
What do the black liberation commies plan to do to the white commies? I have a quess. The job holdinwhites will be first in line.
I thought his grandfather had been cremated. Has anyone ever seen the death certificate?
I've always thought Grandma's alleged ashes that 0hbumma poured into the Ocean looked like five pounds of baking flour.
If your final resting place is a national cemetery like Punchbowl, your remains can be buried, or if cremated..interred. Are you speaking ill of the dead here? If his grandfather is buried in a national cemetery, then he earned that right through his service.
The Obama Family Crypt...
No, just veterans. And Dunham was a veteran. He's not Obama, let him rest in peace.
Bush Derangement Syndrome is now the Obama Derangement Syndrome.
Hopefully he is a little dot falling from somewhere near the top! About 3,000 ft top to bottom.
I have never seen him order food without pointing. I think somebody has coached him to do that, to look ‘in charge’.
He should hire a new coach.
Making fun of a socialist President on a ridiculous extended vacation manufacturing media spin is akin to accusing a President of collapsing the Twin Towers to start a war for Halliburton? You puzzle me.
I’ve always thought Grandma’s alleged ashes that 0hbumma poured into the Ocean looked like five pounds of baking flour.
I have to agree. That was not an urn but a sack of flour. Hmmm, Hmmm, Hmmm. They are very bad people and may it come back to bite them in the a$$.
If nobody else will say it, I will. God Bless Grandma!
AP thinks Obama is a saint sent down from heaven
and we are evil to oppose him.
Wonder who is in charge at AP that makes them write this sh*t ???
That’s some real class right there.
Grandfather? I thought Stanley was his father and some Honolulu ho’ was his mother. a little bit of /s
This is the columbarium in which his ashes were placed.
I suggest renting the latest movie “Salt”, if you get the Bluray version it will have three different endings, I don’t know if the regular DVD does but it gives an insight into just how long ranged the KGB were at introducing trained agents into the American society.
I particularly enjoyed the Extended Directors Cut. Way better ending than shown in the theaters.
Are we sure grandma is dead? And are we sure she wasn’t interred and maybe the grave not marked? We aren’t even sure his mother is dead are we?
There was an actual picture of this? Who in there right mind allows a picture of such an event?
LOL to the flour I LOL.
The “best” part was that it was illegal for Obama to dump the ashes into the ocean along the shore like he did, he then proceeded to throw the empty container into the ocean as well.
Did he say to his grandpa, like he did to the troops, “You make a great photo op”?
It is sickening huh? I saw on TV that initially the media were drooling over Obama so badly that they described his glistening muscles of his stomache six pack in detail!
Oh and don’t forget the SOB went to church he went to church did you hear he went to church?
Are ashes usually that white?
Meant to add: looks as if they are pouring Grandma out of a KFC bucket. :-)
This is getting sick photo ops to drudge up support, he visits his grandfathers grave while in Hawaii. he dumps his grandmothers flour from the flour canister and claims it is her ashes (come now I have seen the ashes from an urn - they are not that white nor are they so massive in quantity an uncle passed away in Arizona and he was delivered in a quart size baggie). Plus ice cream and slurpies. gee what great photo ops to get for the campaign. Obama visits the grave of his grandfather whom served in the WWII European theater. Obama honors his grandmothers last wish her ashes to be dumped into the ocean. he takes his daughters to see the palces of his misspent youth in Hawaii. Come now I am not buying this crap anymore. he lived in Hawaii liked I lived in New York State so brief of a time it makes little sense to say I was really ever in New York (summer job).
