    I feel like this is not really newsworthy. That said, it is fine and good he wants to be with his grandma. Being "good & caring" however has no bearing on your performance as President.

    Sorry to have bothered you guys with this non-news that was deemed appropriate for the front page of all major US web news sources. :rolleyes:

    Is this a quasi-closed site that just doesn't want new members? If so, please let me know and I'll be glad to find the door.

    This makes the front page but you cant find Bidens explosive comments from Sunday on the front page of any newspapers.

    I think the two stories are related. Obama is on an emergency leave to go see Grandma as she is coming home from the hospital? Home?

    I didnt know she was even in the hospital and why was he not with her when she went to the hospital or was in the hospital. We dont usually stop what we are doing to go see them once they are well enough to come home.

    Remember when McCain suspended his campaign to go to the senate to help solve the credit crisis? The lib media line was he thereby exercized bad judgement. :rolleyes: Yaaaaaaa........dealing with the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression was less important than trading potshots with obama for a few extra days.

    Now obama splits to deal with his gravely ill "racist" grandmother a couple weeks before the election - any lib media criticism? Of course not.

    Surely you've read enough around hear to know that there are a wide variety of view points. You are simply getting the flow back on what so many of us view as a typical MSM double standard.

    My best wishes for his grandmother, and I've no doubt that he loves her, in spite of some of the things he's said about her for his political purposes.

    You shouldn't be so thin-skinned because many of us fail to share your perspective on this particular article. There are many subjects/articles posted here that generate heated discussion. We're always glad for new people and new views, but you've got to take the heat to stay in this kitchen...

    I hope you are right. She can stick her foot in her mouth better than Biden.

    McCain didn't as much get flack for suspending his campaign as much as he did for grandstanding about it and then flip-flopping when Obama didn't cave in to his demand to suspend the debate. There's a difference. It's a good thing he didn't suspend the debate as most people agreed that Obama won handily.
