Yeah right. They just "adopted" his middle name on Facebook, but I don't see anybody goes down to the Courthouse and LEGALLY change his or her middle name to Hussein. These people are a fraud, just like Obama.

I'm voting for Barak Hussein Obama. What do all you tight-asses expect when you resort to the childish tactic of attempting to disparage somebody because of their name? Of course there's gonna be a reaction, and here you go.....

Do you ever see anyone challenging John McCain's name, nationality or religion? He knows who he is and so do those who support him. He is the next President of the United States.

Do you think anyone would challenge him if his middle name was "Hitler?"

Who cares? Bush is heading to China for the Olympics to officially turn over the keys to this country. None of the candidates really count after the turnover of power to the Chinese.

You're a M O R O N. McCain's middle name is not "Hitler", but Obama's LEGAL middle name is HUSSEIN. People who call themselves Whatever Hussein Whatever are a bunch of misguided chicken****. I dare them to put Hussein on their driver licenses, passport applications, job applications etc. But I know they won't.

It's a name. There's nothing evil about it. It's just. a. name. That's the point they are trying to make.

On page 154 of "Dreams From My Father," Obama writes: "In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school, two years at a Catholic school. In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during the Koranic studies."

This issue could be political poison to Obama. Already the fight the smears website has shown a forged copy of his certication of birth. The reason for this is anyone's guess, but possibly showing race as African rather than American Negro, probably the classification at that time, is the issue, or possibly his or his father's real name. This is very bizarre, but this forgery could be very important during the campaign. In the same book quoted above he claims he found a copy of his birth certificate, so why the forgery?

First of all, his middle name was given to him over 40 years ago. At that time nobody thought twice about it. The name means nothing, but scared, racists are scrambling to find anything to use as a weapon against his campaign. There was a time that the last name Mc Cain would have been a detriment, also due to racism. This girl gave herself the Hussein middle name to garner attention and it worked. Does that mean that she will attack the next county over with a dirty bomb? Only an idiot would think so. I truly hope that Obama wins the election. Maybe once people see that he is an American who loves his country just lkie the rest of us, they will relax.

The point is obvious. At one time in his youth he prayed as a Moslem, went to a Moslem school, and later converted to Christianity. When he wrote his book he did not know that his handlers would force him to run away from Islam, so now the evasion. Lying about any Moslem past, not that it is wrong to be a Moslem, is the point. Read about the past religious affiliationa of our former Presidents and tell me if belonging to a "mainstream" church is very important to the electorate.

The strangest part of the Obama narrative is the forged or at least altered birth certificate posted on the Obama fight the smears website. All Obama supporters please look at this document and claim that it is genuine. Some facts shown on the real certificate(which he caimed he possessed) obviously are a problem.
Question- does forging your birth certificate disqualify tou for the Presidency?

My brother has researched this birth certificate controversy, and his opinion is that Obama was probably born in Hawaii(though not 100% sure) but that it is likely that the line for race says White instead of African because the father was not present and they would have used the mother's race. Obama looks like his mother, and unless she told the hospital that the father was from Africa, the nurses would not know this. He also doubts that the parents were ever married(admitted by Michelle) and therefore the last name would be Dunham, not Obama. Two different hospitals are named in Wikipedia, another weird fact.
