"Nobody had pulled the plug on granny" spoke our president on April 1, 2010 soon after he signed the new health care bill.
Is this the way the President of the United States, so very lacking in tact, speaks to us about the death of our loved-ones?
Having recently been a part of the most painful decision my family has ever had to make, I can certainly say that it was not humorous at all. It was heartbreaking when my family had to make the decision to stop life support in the hospital and put my mother in hospice care to be kept comfortable until she slowly slipped away from us. It was not funny at all.
We brought her home to die.
Her grandsons sat for hours by her bedside, their hearts broken at having to let go of their dear grandmother who gave them nothing but love and kindness.
"Pull the plug on Granny" indeed.
How dare the President of the United States so heartlessly mock us about the death of someone we love so dearly.
Shame on you, Obama. That was pure cruelty and evil. When your time comes to make such a decision about a member of your own family, I wonder if you'll think it's a laughable subject then.
