Barack Obama opts out on Grandmothers funeral

Ever since Obama announced his grandmother’s death the Sunday before the election, many have been left wondering when the funeral would be held. And whether or not he and/or his family would be attending. Madelyn Duham had a big hand in raising Obama after his mother Stanley Dunham-Obama-Sotero sent him back home from Indonesia to live with her parents Stanley & Madelyn Dunham in Hawaii when he was around ten years old. Being the US Pres -Select he is of course a busy man but I figured he would take the time to pop on down to his home town to attend the funeral of his beloved “Toot” the “typical white” Grandmother who gave him so much TLC during his young childhood.

Nope. He passed.

HONOLULU – A memorial service for President-elect Barack Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, will be held Friday at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.

The Borthwick Mortuary said Wednesday that the service will be open to the public, but the Obama family will not be in attendance.

The president-elect is scheduled to visit Hawaii in December to honor his grandmother, who helped raise him in Honolulu and died two nights before the election. Officials have not specified when Obama will make the trip.

Dunham’s husband, Stanley Dunham, who fought in World War II, was buried at the cemetery following his death in 1992.

If you recall after Obama announced his grandmother was “gravely ill” he waited for 4 days to be by her side. To busy dancing with Ellen I suppose.

He has his priorities… his self.
