In another example of Obama’s lousy attitude towards the woman that raised him since he was 10 years old, the New York Times this weekend recalled an interview in which he criticized his grandmother, Madelyn Durham, for electing to undergo hip replacement surgery despite being terminally ill:

“I don’t know how much that hip replacement cost… (I don’t feel) society making those decisions to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill is a sustainable model.”

“I mean, the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care bill.”

Apparently Mrs. Durham is exhibit #1 on how the no good elderly are heartlessly wasting the nation’s collective healthcare resources for their own selfish purposes, like wanting to walk.

As a productive member of society, Mrs. Durham had every right to make her own decisions regarding healthcare, including a new hip if that is what she and her doctors saw fit. It is not our place, or anyone else’s for that matter, to be dictating to seniors at what time they no longer qualify for expensive healthcare procedures.

The audacity for Obama to suggest that his own grandmother wasn’t worth a $20,000 hip replacement surgery at the end of her life is remarkable … Michelle Obama will spend more than that on hair and makeup this year alone!

This latest criticism of Mrs. Durham is reminiscent of Obama’s highly touted March 2008 race speech where, in addition to his famous declaration “I can no more disown him (Rev. Wright) than I can disown the black community”, Obama described his grandmother as “a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her on the street and who, on more than one occasion, has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”

Obama actually called his grandmother a racist in public, to the entire world! Now he points to her as a classic example of the elderly stealing valuable healthcare resources from the nation. Does Obama’s depravity towards Mrs. Durham know no end?

I don’t know if it’s a race thing, or age thing, or what, but it makes me wonder, if Obama thinks so poorly of own grandmother, I can only imagine how little he feels for the rest of us.
