Ask Barack and the media about whats in a name

3-2-2008


How many people in this country are ashamed of their middle names? I would guess very few. Looks like Barack HUSSEIN Obama and the media can be placed in the "few" category. Earlier this week in Cincinnati, talk show host Bill Cunningham was warming up a crowd of supporters for John McCain. Bill got the crowd going, but he also brought up some very viable issues concerning Barack HUSEIN Obama. I got a good laugh when Bill blasted the media as a bunch of Clinton stooges. It's possible that the media - decided to go after Cunningham due to the fact that he exposed them for who they are and him taking them to task. Bill Cunningham mentioned Barack HUSSEIN Obama's connection with a shady Real Estate deal maker Antoin “Tony” Rezko . So why is the media except for in Chicago staying clear of this story? Of course the media doesn't want to research that story, it would put the magic empty suit upstart in a negative light. They can't have Obama tarnished. The "legitimate" story is whether John McCain can be president since he was born on a military base in Panama. The absolute double standard in the media's reporting of politics is nothing new to me. This is just one more example in a long list of examples of their blatten bias. I can't recall the national media ever doing some investigational research on Obama since he announced he was running for President. Every Republican candidate with the exceptions of Sam Brownback, Duncan Hunter, and Tom Tancredo have had everything and the kitchen sink dug up about them. Some bloggers posted pictures of Obama when he was dressed in some sort of African outfit, and liberals cried about it. They had no problem attacking Rudy Gulliani for him dressing up in drag for a party, Mitt Romney's religion was trashed left and right thanks to the media. The media made it their mission to constantly harp on the fact that Rudy and Fred Thompson were married more then once. The media however still haven't addressed Barack on his support of Jerimah Wright. He media still haven't asked Obama does he agree with his pastor giving a famous racist and anti semite Lousi Farahkan an award last year. The media still haven't addressed Obama on whether he supports his church's "value" system or not. These stories are out their, yet the media can only go after Bill Cunnigham because he dared mention Barack's middle name of HUSSEIN. The funniest thing about all of this is that the media went crying to McCain hoping for him to denounce Cunningham's comments. Did these famous people cry or complain when people used their middle name?

Ronald "WILSON" Reagan
Lyndon "BAINES" Johnson
Franklin "DELANO" Roosevelt
Herbert "WALKER" Bush
George "WALKER" Bush
Richard "MLLHOUSE" Nixon
John "FITZGERALD" Kennedy
Dwight "DAVID" Eisenhower


I hate to be a reality check to Obama, his supporters and the media that protects him, but most of Americans will know his middle name for sure if he does win the Democrat Nomination. Instead of the media trying to attack a talk show host for merely stating his name, the media and others including Obama needs to come to grips that his name is apart of who he is as a person.

people get upset about it because his middle name is being used to scare support away from him, its not a good thing to have the same name as one of the worse dictators to ever live lol. people hear "hussein" and obvious imagery come to mind. can you imagine a candidate with a name "adolf"? if we had more educated voters though there would be no cause for concern about such things as a middle name. his middle name should be the least of concern, where he stands on the issues should rank first and foremost for a voter

So are you admiting that the Obama flock are hysterically supporting a person they didn't even know his middle name up unitl recently? If they support a man they know nothing about and what he stands for, why should his name change their opinion of him?

I agree 100% There are some on the right who believe that Obama is a muslim. I don't believe he is a muslim, and I don't believe he is a christian eithier. If some Republicans keep harping on the Obama is a muslim course, it will backfire on them and bad. The issues should be what this election is all about.

So true, we have more then enough issues to deal with. Gas prices, the falling dollar, inflation, foreign policy, domestic policy, the economy, trade etc. The muslim thing is a non starter more so then a topic and it should remain that way.

As if we need to use his middle name to discourage people from voting for him. His record in the Senate will do that for the GOP. He's so liberal it's not funny.

From a teacher's perspective you have one student who has an 83/100, one with a 17/100 and one with a 0/100.

Guess who is who?

McCain is the B student
Hillary is failing but does have some points.
Obama? Well you get the idea...

yes many people follow what is popular at the moment without thought, bringing up his middle name im not sure what effect that has had if any but if any so i cant say for sure its worked against him or not, i would say probably not. this is something that has only been done to obama though,i've heard people criticize huckabee in the media because his name sounded like a hick or a restaurant chain. even here in illinois our governors last name is "blagojevich" before he was elected people had doubts that he would be accepted with such a foreign sounding name, he's now in his second term much to my dismay but my dislike of him has nothing to do with his name. what can i say this is expected in politics you use what you can against your opponent to beat them

The only thing McCain has to do is expose Obama's socialist views vegas. Obama truly believes that his opposition to the war is his strong suit. It will be funny watching Obama try to debate the war with a living war hero. Obama will need more then the catch words like change.

I would give McCain a C+ as a student, hillary a D- and Obama an F as a student vegas.

I've heard people criticize Huckaabee's name too. I remember the hick references as well. Huckabee unlkie Obama and his supporters didn't run away from his name. Huckabee didn't get offended so easily when someone made a negative remark about his name. In politics, a candidate must have tough skin to weather attacks. If Obama can't take it that some for whatever reason would refer to his name at birth, Obama has an oversensitivity
problem it looks like.

CB: I was going off of the score an conservative think tank (acu I think) gave all three candidates. One more thing to remember...

McCain has $0.00 in earmarks...

It's not the name that is the issue, is that his opponents are using it as fear mongering. Calling him muslim, saying he make america more prone to terrorist attacks, "mistakingly" calling him Obama Barack Hussein.

sad tactics. even more sad it works on some people
