Family First for Obama

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

In a report by Livesteez, Obama has temporarily halted his campaign:

Presidential candidate Barack Obama will leave the campaign trail for two days this week to visit his seriously ill grandmother in Hawaii, the Democratic candidate’s spokesman, Robert Gibbs, said Monday. “Senator Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has always been one of the most important people in his life. Along with his mother and his grandfather, she raised him in Hawaii from the time he was born until the moment he left for college. As he said at the Democratic Convention, she poured everything she had into him,” said Gibbs in a statement. “Recently, his Grandmother has become ill, and in the last few weeks, her health has deteriorated to the point where her situation is very serious. It is for that reason that Senator Obama has decided to change his schedule on Thursday and Friday so that he can see her and spend some time with her.” The campaign is set to resume on Saturday.

Poor thing has probably waited her entire life to see her grandson realize his dreams. Hopefully, she will get a chance to not only see him become President of the U.S., but to also see him make some very pivotal changes during his presidency as well. Keep the Obama family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Is He Cool?

    What is Obama thinking in the August 2008 editon of Ebony: The 25 coolest brothers of all time? (In my opinion): Damn I’m cool… it wasn’t long ago that I was the Nerd and now I’m among the top cool brothers of all times… now that’s the American Dream!!! Wow, I do believe that miracles can happen if you just wait on it. Have faith people your future Prince of the White House is on the way. Everything I touch will freeze, icy cold and then melt away, like gas prices, the declining real estate market, green house gases, just hold on… Obama-man is on the way. I can’t take off my shades… my eyes have already begin to turn bionic.

    Anyway, I am praying for Miss Toot. (Barack calls his grandmother Toot.)

    @Hannibal – you will be 1 out of 10 votes that McStupid gets (hahaha)

    Obama is such a man! This is a good reason to stop your campaign, unlike McSneaky pretended to stop because he wanted to “help the economic crises”.

    Best wishes to Obama and his family. . .

    (CNN) — Barack Obama’s campaign is set to release it’s own robocall in Wisconsin Wednesday in response to McCain’s ‘sleazy phone calls,’ against the Illinois Senator.

    According to the Web site Talking Points Memo, the call features Jeri Watermolen, a former McCain backer who has turned to support Obama because of the McCain campaign’s robocalls which ‘viciously—and falsely’ attack Obama.

    “Hi, this is Jeri Watermolen, calling for the Campaign for Change. I live in Green Bay and, like you, I’ve been getting sleazy phone calls and mail from John McCain and his supporters viciously — and falsely — attacking Barack Obama. I used to support John McCain because he honorably served our country — but this year he’s running a dishonorable campaign.”

    Hi, this is Jeri Watermolen, calling for the Campaign for Change. I live in Green Bay and, like you, I’ve been getting sleazy phone calls and mail from John McCain and his supporters viciously — and falsely — attacking Barack Obama. I used to support John McCain because he honorably served our country — but this year he’s running a dishonorable campaign. We know McCain will continue many of Bush’s policies, and now he’s using George Bush’s divisive tactics. In fact, he hired the Bush strategists whose attacks even McCain once called hateful.

    Barack Obama will turn the page on these negative politics and stand up for the middle class. That’s the change we need, and it’s why I have changed my mind about John McCain. Join me in voting for Barack Obama. Paid for the Campaign for Change, a project of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, and authorized by Obama for America.

    I agree with Obama’s move on that one. Family is everything especially when they did good by and for you.

  • BE

    @Hannibal – okay, I do hope you will come to Obama’s victory party…oh you will be busy crying about McStupid…we will still love you afterwards though! LOL

    From today’s Wall Street Journal:

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Barack Obama has opened up a double-digit lead in the presidential race, with a growing number of voters saying they’re now comfortable with the Democratic nominee’s values, background and ability to serve as commander in chief, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.


    Overall, the poll found 52% of voters favor Sen. Obama versus 42% for Sen. McCain. That 10-point lead is up from a six-point Obama edge two weeks ago. The survey of registered voters, conducted from Friday to Monday, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

    It’s the largest lead in the Journal/NBC poll thus far, and represents a steady climb for Sen. Obama since early September, when the political conventions concluded with the candidates in a statistical tie.

    “Voters have reached a comfort level with Barack Obama,” said Peter D. Hart, a Democratic pollster who conducts the poll with Republican Neil Newhouse.

    Seeing his grandparents I wonder how BO came out so dark. I guess the black gene is strong.

  • Damn shame

    WOnder how his other grand momma doing the one they had posted with the rag on her head holding the chicken by the neck with the biggest smile ever. Not too many commercials of how she inspired him.

  • JoJo69

    @ Betty

    Have you seen pictures of his daddy? If you have seen pictures of his daddy then you would know that his dad’s genes were mighty strong in that conception.

  • reddnwood

    I wish his grandmother well but notice how there’s never hardly any mention of his “other” family members! I wonder if his “other” grandmother will even be invited to hise inaguration ceremonies?!

  • FallinPoet(Robin Thicke's "Dreamworld" is the sh*t)

    @ reddnwood…. the lack of coverage on his paternal grandparents isn’t about race, it’s bc he was raised by his mother and her parents… his father’s parents didnt play big roles in his upbringing.

  • AC

    It’s pretty public knowledge that Obama was raised by his grandmother on his mother’s side for most of his life. He has only met the other grandmother a few times. So it’s not surprising that one has been more influential than the other. It has nothing to do with race people.
