The GOP's daily attack, erm tactic: "fake umbrage"
Hat-tip: England for Obama
From Mike Allen's Politico Playbook Daily Update:
Jeff Zeleny's pool report from Honolulu: 'Senator Barack Obama stepped off the plane about 7:25 p.m. local time, walking directly into a waiting SUV. It was a subdued arrival, with no waving and no welcoming party. He was tieless after a more than 9-hour flight, plus a refueling stop in Sacramento. A scaled down motorcade – about six cars – made its way through easy traffic to the apartment building where Madelyn Dunham lives. Mr. Obama arrived about 7:45 p.m. and drove directly into the underground parking garage. About three-dozen people stood across the street watching the small spectacle. Several residents of the apartment building stepped out on their balconies, looking down on Mr. Obama's arrival. ... The motorcade drove to the Hyatt Regency Waikiki, a little more than a mile away, and a campaign day that spanned six time zones ended shortly after 9 p.m. (3 a.m. Eastern Time.)'
Senator Obama, to ABC's Robin Roberts, in taped interview on 'Good Morning America,' on his 85-year-old grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, the woman who largely raised him: 'I want to give her a kiss and a hug. And then we're going to find out what chores I can do, because I'm sure there's been some stuff that's been left undone ... Without going through the details too much, she's gravely ill. ... [recently broke a hip] She had some other problems that were getting worse. You know, we weren't sure, and I'm still not sure, whether she makes it to Election Day. We're all praying and we hope she does.'
ABCNews.com says he calls her 'Toot, which is short for the Hawaiian word tutu, meaning grandparent.'
