    Question Obama's grandma lives in a hut in Africa?

    That what he said...
    Barack Obama insists his experiences traveling and having family living overseas brings more to the table than, let's say, the job of a former first lady.

    "It's that experience, that understanding, not just of what world leaders I went and talked to in the ambassadors house I had tea with, but understanding the lives of the people like my grandmother who lives in a tiny hut in Africa," Obama, D-Ill., told a crowd of would-be voters in Coralville, Iowa, on Friday.

    The veiled shot at Senator Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., couldn't be more succinct as he argued that her experience level as a first lady doesn't outshine his as a world traveler.

    Huh? He wants to live in the WH and he'll let his grandma live in a hut in Africa?

    Who gives a sh*t?

    My grandma wouldn't "let" me do anything to her. Step up your game.

    Hell, I have spent more time in Cities and Towns with people that are in the Crux of Human Events than either of those dew-bags.

    That being said, I am back of the Saudi on Wednesday. Fun stuff, another 10 days in Riyadh... I'll be sure to give them the warm regards of the fine folks of JI. Tt least I get to go to Greece the following week. Greece is usually a good time.

    Unfortunately I will be "stuck" in Athens for 8 days. Not much time for touring this time around.
