Barack Obama and his family held a memorial for his grandmother yesterday in Oahu, Hawaii.



These are photos of Obama scattering his grandma's ashes in the sea. Madelyn Dunham, whom Obama called "Toot," died just days before he was elected Prez.

President Elect Obama is not asking the media to following him around like he is a celebrity - it's their choice. Neither President Bush nor Cheney's grandmother passed away just before the election -- get over it! One thing we know for sure is that he is the President for the next 4 years.

To the people b!tchin about this being disrespectful...

These pictures wouldn't make it to the internet if there weren't people like you to come and look at them.
If the same pic existed of Lindsay Lohan instead of Obama you wouldn't have a problem.

Get off your high horses.

I wonder if he had to get permission to dispose of the ashes into the ocean, that close to shore? Anyone else would have had too...

I don't know how much ole toot weighed but with the wind blowing in off the ocean I would venture to say,none of the ashes hit the water.

This is so disrespectful, that is a private matter that should just include him and his family. That is awful that this whole vacation he hasn't been left a lone and even worst than this they took pictures of his kids in bathing suits. That is just wrong and the other thing it is very scary that someone is able to get this close to Obama this many times for pictures, they need to step up his secret service. There are too many idiots out there that could use this lack in security to do bad things.
