A few choice postings by Free Republic commenters remarking on the death, today, of Barack Obama's grandmother:
Nice timing. That’ll pick up a few sympathy votes for sure.Stay classy, people. You don't want anything to do with these merchants of hatred.

Cancer patients usually pass away from a planned terminal sedation.
This may be the first politically timed terminal sedation ever, though.

A PUMA in my office said she died last week and that this is a set up.

Did he have power of attorney over her? Did he decide to stop any kind of life support?

from another discussion on the same news:
She was swindled into raising someone else’s child. I do not believe that hussein is half white.

from a third discussion:
Murdered? It’s not murder when it’s for the chosen one. The dems will blame it on lack of universal health care and get a double bang for the buck. Obama will forgive her racism and find another family member to use and throw under the bus.
obama and his mindless followers planned her machine to be turned off as sure as the clocks changed Sunday.As if modern medicine could not have kept her alive until after election day. Sick people we are dealing with.

Very sad. I believe Mrs. Dunham - had she been healthy - would have - should have been called upon to testify before a Senate committee on the specifics of her grandson’s birth.
Barack was right. Granny DID NOT live to see election day. Gee. He sure called THAT one. Wonder how he knew???

I’m not going along with it. This is a time when you need to be generating hatred and anger for the enemy. Not sympathy and empathy. Perfectly timed to subdue you when you are all needed at your peak. I don’t go for these threads, but hey, that’s just me. This is a distraction. 5,000 grandma’s died today - only one makes it on this site and gets hearts bleeding. These people do NOT mean you any good will and if elected they will use the full power at their disposal to oppress your beliefs and freedoms.
