This the the Grandmother the Obomination repeatedly threw under the bus ... and the family did NOT visist recently ... . Michele and the kiddies stayed home while Obama and his lawyers went to Hawaii.

Is Ted Kennedy next for a sympathy vote?

I put nothing past the Oboma people when it comes to encouraging votes ... even a "surprise" death ... .

Just in time for the East Coast evening news.

No one could be bothered to report on Husseins intent to destroy the coal industry but I see anyone with a website is covering this.

Obama learned of her death Monday morning while he was campaigning in Jacksonville, Fla. He planned to go ahead with campaign appearances.

The family said a private ceremony would be held later.

...

Obama’s nickname for his grandmother was “Toot,” a version of the Hawaiian word for grandmother, tutu. Many of his speeches describe her working on a bomber assembly line during World War II.

Madelyn and Stanley Dunham married in 1940, a few weeks before she graduated from high school. Their daughter, Stanley Ann, was born in 1942. After several moves to and from California, Texas, Washington and Kansas, Stanley Dunham’s job landed the family in Hawaii.

It was there that Stanley Ann later met and fell in love with Obama’s father, a Kenyan named Barack Hussein Obama Sr. They had met in Russian class at the University of Hawaii. Their son was born in August 1961, but the marriage didn’t last long. She later married an Indonesian, Lolo Soetoro, another university student she met in Hawaii.

(Hmmm his UNFIT mother met Obama’s daddy in a RUSSIAN CLASS at the University of Hawaii ... HMMMM. SO that is where the communistic indoctrination started ... .)

Obama moved to Indonesia with his mother and stepfather at age 6. But in 1971, her mother sent him back to Hawaii to live with her parents. He stayed with the Dunhams until he graduated from high school in 1979.

In his autobiography, Obama wrote fondly of playing basketball on a court below his grandparents’ 10th-floor Honolulu apartment, and looking up to see his grandmother watching.

(Yeah she died in the same cramped apartment she raised the little monster, Obama in. He threw no money her way either.)

It was the same apartment Obama visited on annual holiday trips to Hawaii, a weeklong vacation from his campaign in August, and his pre-election visit in October. Family members said his grandmother could not travel because of her health.

May she RIP.. Now she won’t have to see her grandson lose the election.

Dunham was "a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world but who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her on the street."

Um... How is this fitting in one's eulogy?

Obama is a die hard racist that has a troubled soul.
