Simple question. Why does Obama never mention that his grandmother was in the banking industry for 31 years? You would think becoming a vice-president of a bank during the early 70s would be a pretty big accomplishment for a women back then. Instead, he paints her out as some stay-at-home granny that spent her days sweeping the dust off their porch in Kansas. Truth is, Barack's grandparents spent most of their adult life in California, Washington, and Hawaii. His mother barely spent any time in Kansas and Barack never stepped foot there. This whole thing about having midwestern roots is a joke. Barack grew up in the home of a well-paid banking executive, who undoubtedly spent part of her days foreclosing on people's homes. But I guess that story doesn't sell as well to Obama's socialist fans. Think about it. Granny spent 31 years working her butt off just to see her own grandson too embarrassed to mention her accomplishments. Shame on Barack!
