Obama's grandma was educated and rich

In the debate, Pres. Obama said:
You know, my grandmother -- some of you know -- helped to raise me. My grandparents did. My grandfather died a while back. My grandmother died three days before I was elected president. And she was fiercely independent. She worked her way up, only had a high school education, started as a secretary, ended up being the vice president of a local bank. And she ended up living alone by choice. ... And that's the perspective I bring when I think about what's called entitlements.
That's funny, because his grandmother's obituary said:
Madelyn Dunham attended college at the University of Washington before becoming an aircraft inspector for Boeing during World War II.

After the war, she attended UC-Berkeley, worked various jobs, then came to the Islands, where she joined the Bank of Hawaii in 1960.
So Obama lied when he said that she "only had a high school education". Even stranger, he says that his image of entitlements is a bank vice president who chooses to live alone.
