    If this is true this confirms it for me. Obama is the ultimate sleeze bag.

    From Drudge:

    OBAMA INTERVIEW: LETS TALK ABOUT GRANDMOTHER'S HEALTH
    Wed Oct 22 2008 18:09:23 ET

    CBS EARLY SHOW co-anchor Harry Smith conducted an exclusive interview with Sen. Barack Obama earlier today in Richmond, Va. Among other topics, the senator told Smith why it’s so important for him to take a break from his campaign to see his grandmother. “My grandmother's the last one left,” Obama told Smith. The senator added, “She has really been the rock of the family, the foundation of the family.” Obama didn’t get to his mother before she died. “Yeah, got there too late,” he says. “You know, I mean, it was sort of like this, in the sense that she had a terminal illness. We knew she wasn't doing well, but you know, the diagnosis was such that we thought we had a little more time and we didn't. And so I want to make sure that I don't make the same mistake twice.”

    OBAMA SAYS HE DOESN’T WANT TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER THAT HE MADE WITH HIS DYING MOTHER – IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ON “THE EARLY SHOW” ON OCT. 23 ON CBS

    I think it upsets him that Obama cares about his grandmother.

    I agree, I think that's his problem.

    And the fact Obama is honest, can't have that since his candidate tells lie after lie. :eusa_whistle:

    If Obama had one ounce of class in him he would not have announced to the world two days ago that he was going to see his ailing grandmother at the end of week. Obama is a smart man. He knew the dog lapping press would slurp it up. Now on national TV he's squeezing every last drip of publicity he can get out of his grandmother's illness. He is a truly despicable man. A person with any dignity would have made no mention of going to see her and arranged to see her below the radar, perhaps telling the press he was taking day off the trail to hold a strategy meeting. Or at least not milking it for all it was worth for three or four days. I think this tells us a whole lot about Mr. Obama and I sure hope it backfires on him but good.

    I didn't think much about it until he decided to milk it on national TV. Obama is morphing into Nixon before our very eyes.

    I don't care much for Joe Biden, but you gotta admit he handled his son's deployment and his MIL's illness with more class than Obama has handled this. Weird, but for once Obama should take a page from Biden's book and shut up.
