Obama lies again: Grandmother Madelyn Dunham unable to attend college? Bias?

While many in this country have long recognized the President's penchant for lying, sadly, there are millions of Americans who are only now beginning to take notice of this phenomenon. But of course, as the old adage goes: "Better late than never."

Nevertheless, this incredible urge to lie grabbed hold of the President once again during a fundraiser in San Francisco on Monday, when he told the crowd:

"Every morning I try to think back to how I got involved in public service in the first place, and I think back to my own family’s story... And I think about my grandmother, who, partly because of how women were treated when she was growing up, wasn’t able to go to college herself, but worked her way up from being a secretary to being the vice president of a bank — and then hit the glass ceiling, and probably could have gone a little further if it hadn’t been for some of the bias that existed at the time."

The President asserted that, "my grandmother..., partly because of how women were treated when she was growing up, wasn’t able to go to college herself."

Problem is, Obama's grandmother - who later became a vice president of a bank - DID go to college.

While residing in Berkeley, California, Obama's grandmother - Madelyn Dunham - attended the University of California, Berkeley. When she moved to Washington State, she attended the University of Washington.

Dunham later expressed regret that, while she DID go to college, she never finished college, and never got a degree. Dunham worked at various jobs over the years to help support her family, and that appears to be the reason she never completed college.

Hence the aforementioned statement from President Obama: "My grandmother..., partly because of how women were treated when she was growing up, wasn’t able to go to college herself," appears to be just one more lie among the seemingly endless list of Obama lies.

As far as the second half of the President's statement is concerned: "My grandmother... worked her way up from being a secretary to being the vice president of a bank — and then hit the glass ceiling, and probably could have gone a little further if it hadn’t been for some of the bias that existed at the time."

Suffice it to say that Obama's grandmother became the Vice President at the Bank of Hawaii [Bankoh], which reportedly was the No. 1 bank in Hawaii during that period of time, in terms of assets. Likewise, Joe Biden became the Vice President of the World's No. 1 superpower, but he never did make it to the top, and will likely never make it to the top. Hence the question arises: Did Mr. Biden hit the "glass ceiling"? Or was the "glass ceiling" a special device created exclusively for Obama's grandmother?
