Barack Hussein Obama

There, I said it or wrote it, rather. Michelle Obama was on CNN just now implying that anyone who didn't support her husband and dared to utter his middle name was a fearmonger. I'm not a fearmonger, and I reserve the right to use her husband's middle name if I want to, as free speech (which is stil protected under the Constitution, I hope) even if I don't support him. This is part of the Obama's own fearmonger spin today. They say Hillary Clinton's new Texas ads are fearmongering. Republicans are fearmongering. Fortunately for CNN, the Obama's aren't afraid. They'll stand up every time and whine to the adoring media about how everybody is being mean to them, giving the overpaid talking heads at CNN something to talk about all day long. Well, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary's ads don't scare me, Republicans don't scare me, and your wife doesn't scare me either.

waaaaaaa!!!!!

How about you spend less time posting meaningless drivel and more time volunteering for Hillary's sinking campaign? You also may want to throw in some money as it's not known yet if Hillary has recouped her $5,000,000 loan (with interest of course).

I think you should challenge her to a five round cage match.

Yes! It's all a GIANT conspiracy!

Um, don't you think your post is a tad ironic given this quote in the diary?

They'll stand up every time and whine to the adoring media about how everybody is being mean to them...

If

Michelle Obama did say something like that, then it is wrong.

His middle name is his middle name, but when it is said or written in certain ways to purposfully try and tie him to "terror and terrorist" then this is wrong.

To not support Obama does not make me a racist, to use his middle name is not a bad thing. It is how and why things are written and said that can be bad when using his middle name or his race.

Re: Barack Hussein Obama

His middle name is only an issue for people who are ignorant.  Feel free to use it, it doesn't bother me or any mature adult in the least.

Free speech

Plenty of utterances are free speech and are thus protected expressions of opinion under our constitution.  This does not mean that those listening to them cannot repudiate the message as hate mongering. Holocaust denials, racial epithets, and gay bashing come to mind as examples.  Barack Obama does not go by his full name and the only plausible reason his opponents refer to him by his middle name anyway is to associate him with the Islamic religion -- a religion of which Obama is not and NEVER HAS BEEN a member.  To the extent to which the purpose of developing this association is to play off voter's irrational bigotry and fear of members of an honorable faith, this message should be repudiated just as forcefully as that of the abovementioned expressions.  You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Please explain...
how this post either says something positive and informative about your candidate, or else helps the Dem party.

We don't need bashing around here, even if you cloak it in free speech.

Re: Barack Hussein Obama

If Mr. Obama does not go by his full name, i.e. include his middle name; then why doesn't he legally get rid of the middle? Maybe that could be the solution.   It's not offensive to me, but I can see that it may be a big problem for "red neck" types. (excuse the word "red neck" too)  Many Americans are going to have a difficult time with the name President Hussein Obama.  That's the hard truth.
