Obama: ‘If You Don’t Care For Family…’

Buried 30 seconds into this treacly CBS “Morning Show” interview with Obama about his ailing grandmother:

“Most people understand that if you are not caring for your family, then you are probably not the kind of person who is going to be caring for other people.”

Hey, Barack, tell that to your $1 a month, hut-dwelling brother:

    What a bunch of crap! This is the same grandma he threw under the bus during the Wright kerfuffle? He timed this whole episode and is milking it to a sympathetic media….I thought that MSM stooge was going to cry.

  2. 1sttofight says:

    Obama will take care of the USA just like he takes care of his grandma.

  3. VMAN says:

    You know if there is a relative that I care about deeply and have the means to do it I would rush to there bedside. I think any person would. The big O says hang in there granny I’ll be there on Thursday. It’s rough on a person getting thrown under a bus.

  4. 1sttofight says:

    Yeah vman , exactly how did her hip get broken? Maybe the bus her grandson threw her under broke it.

  5. curvyred says:

    This is the same grandma who raised him, and was not EVER FEATURED IN HIS CAMPAIGN, until he decided to call her a typical white person. He is a piece of poop.

    How about this, OBAMA CAMPAIGN credit card fraud:

    http://www.ksdk.com/news/govt_politics/elections/decision2008/story.aspx?storyid=157867&catid=18

    KSDK — At least four credit card holders in Missouri have recently opened their statements and found unauthorized transactions, which charged $2,300 to the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.

    It happened to Tom Brown and his wife a couple weeks ago. They became aware of it after Discover sent them an e-mail about an unusually large purchase.

    “My wife said, ‘Oh my God!’ Right away, she called Discover to cancel the card,” Brown said. “I talked to Discover about it, and they said it looks like it was keyed in from Chicago.”

    Chicago style gotta love it.

    If his grandmother is so gravely ill – why has he campaigned all week and of course the corollary – if Obama has this race in the bag (the tranistion team & acceptance speech stage are being set up as we write) – why did he campaign all week? Some are beginning to think (and speculate) that he is going simply to get into the ‘attic’ to get his vital historical records (such as his birth certificate, two old passports, his mothers possible marriage/divorce records) to conveniently burn them before anyone finds out the truth.

    I can’t decide if this is a scam (gravely) from the msm or a scam from Obama.

    Either way, it is once again a sign that nothing is as it seems when discussing Obama.

    What is the fricking difference?

    They are both pulling for the downfall of the USA.

  8. curvyred says:

    Do you think he will swing by the DHS, to pick up any documents?

  9. Reality Bytes says:

    Typical 1/2 White Person!

  10. 1sttofight says:

    curvyred,
    Apparently you are one of those uninformed clinging type persons.
    The One does not have to “swing by” he merely has to raise his hand….

    Googling for Obama / Grandmother, I hit on stuff like this… (3rd post from top)

    Poor guy. On top of all the stress involved in running for president, he has to watch his grandmother die. Wonder how the Republicans will try and exploit this.

    Let them try it. The backlash in the form of a sympathy vote alone would be enough to put Obama firmly in the White House.

    The devil can’t be any slicker than this man!
    The timing and circumstances of so many happenings (even sad one’s) seem to work out perfect for Obama

    Wow, wardmama, and I thought I was suspicious of his motives! I assumed he was laying low and just buying some time.

    Maybe he can get Dan Rather, et al., to get him some of them troofy documents and he’ll be good to go!

  13. Consilience says:

    Suppose the anointed criminal messiah is going to visit that “typical white person”—how magnanimous of his holiness. The more I learn about this stooge, the more there is to simply abhor. He is a menace and must be defeated. This man has no shame and should be in jail rather than the White House.

  14. Gila Monster says:

    The Obamessiah conveniently has a grandma, brother or other “family” member to parade around, but only when it’s politically expedient to exploit them for points with the media or garnish votes from the unwashed masses.

    Otherwise, it’s back to the gulag for them..!!

  15. 1sttofight says:

    The One throws them under the bus, then drags them out when it is convient, blaming Republicans for all the pain.

    Yet people believe his lies.

  16. Liisa says:

    Yeah, I was thinking this morning, if granny is so ill, WTF is he doing just continuing the campaign? Plus the fact that MSM has been telling us for days that he is going to go visit her. For goodness sakes, go do it, stop dragging it on and on!
    This guy is such a putz!

  17. RightWinger says:

    He cares about family. The “family” of people that have done every underhanded thing under the sun to get him elected, that is. We’ll be paying slavery reparations in no time at all.

  18. Liberals Demise says:

    The Annointed One has gone to lay hands on the old honkey then rifle through the old geezers pockets for a campaign donation!

  19. ptat says:

    I have to add to the chorus—why announce the emergency/urgency of getting to your grandmother’s bedside IMMEDIATELY—- 4 days before actually doing it,all the while talking it up, and even then, appearing on some morning show to wallow in the pity—for God’s sake, man—JUST GO! To those with eyes to see—-it is just more phoney politicking. BTW—this is a good example of how he would govern….

  20. curvyred says:

    Obama announced on ABC Good Morning America, that in addition to visiting typical white Granny, he is going to check “around the house” and see if any “chores” need done, does that entail throwing out some documentation? Call my cynical if you will.

  21. Sooie says:

    One can’t help being cynical. I remember when my grandparents, each at different times, became ill before they died. I dropped everything to run out there. I didn’t wait four days. Of course, that’s just what normal people will do.

    Besides that, has anyone said his grandmother is actually dying? Is that just what they are implying?

    The good news for Libbies all over is that Michelle Obama will be campaigning in his place. *shiver*

  22. 1sttofight says:

    Besides that, has anyone said his grandmother is actually dying? Is that just what they are implying?

    She must not be in too bad a shape, she was released from the hospital to go home with only her granddaughter taking care of her. If she was close to death , the hospital would not have released her without medical help in the home.

  23. Sooie says:

    1st, I searched a little on the internet, and it seems to me that Obama is the one that’s implied that the situation is grave. He went so far as to say that he didn’t know if she would make it till election day, but…

    Gravely ill. Close to dying. WSJ

    Breaks hip. Gravely ill. “His grandmother was a real no-nonsense, no-frills woman who was far more skeptical of human nature than his mother,” Mendell said Tuesday. – ABC

    “Without going through the details too much, she’s gravely ill. We weren’t sure, and I’m still not sure whether she makes it to Election Day,” Obama told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an interview broadcast Friday.

    “We’re all praying and we hope she does, but one of the things I want to make sure of is I had a chance to sit down with her and to talk to her. She’s still alert and she’s still got all her faculties. And I want to make sure that I don’t miss that opportunity,” he said. AP

    And, the dailymail(uk) reported that she had osteoporosis.

    Kinda confusing, really.

  24. 1sttofight says:

    I know what you mean sooie, it is sort of like that gal in Pa. who said she was attacked, something just does not add up, on top of the fact that if she were so near death, why did the one wait 4 days to go see her?

    Is it just me are is every other comment box now shaded along with the comment box?

    OK, I switched computers , now it is not shaded.

  25. Indigo Red says:

    Toot fell and broke her hip in her apartment on Oct 6 or 7. As could be expect of a woman of her age, she has not done well in the intervening weeks. Obama knew Granny was doing poorly, yet attended a fundraiser in Indianapolis before flying off to Hawaii. When he returns on Saturday, the genuinely loving and caring grandson will have spent almost one whole day with his dying Grandmother, the rock of his life.

    You know, before his Hawaiian vacation with his wife and kids last August, the loving and caring grandson, Barry, had not visited Granny Toot since 2006. Good thing she fell and couldn’t get up, otherwise Barry would never have visited.

  26. Liberals Demise says:

    The way “That One” has treated his Grand Parents…..it makes one wonder if he gets the nod, will they have to use the backdoor on visits?

  27. 1sttofight says:

    From what I can gather, The One spent just a little over an hour with his “dying granny”.

    WHAT A GUY!!!!

    That Barry what a loving grandson.

  29. curvyred says:

    His grandmother passed away, it was announced 1 hour ago.

    No words can sooth the soul of someone that has lost a loved one.
    I have no love for Obama, nor his political leanings, but I still have enough compasion left in me to give pause.

    I still wont vote for the socialist prick, regardless of his losses.

  31. sheehanjihad says:

    I have the same sentiment for those of us who are on the cusp of losing an entire nation.

  32. DEZ says:

    “I have the same sentiment for those of us who are on the cusp of losing an entire nation.”

    Ditto my freind, and for the most extent I doubt Obama gives a crap about anything other than himself.

  33. Liberals Demise says:

    Everything happens in threes……..1) Joe “The” Biden
    2) Grandmas passing
    3) Two Million $$$$ 2nd Place Party?
    After all …. 2nd place is the 1st loser!!!!
