Names People Call Barack Obama

Will Obama ever recover from the beating Gov. Palin gave him the other night? Maybe not.

People have many nicknames for Barack H. Obama. Cristi Adkins, whom Obama's attack dogs have been after relentlessly for months, calls him "Hussein." She believes he's much more at home with an Islamic terrorist like Raila Odinga or a domestic terrorist like Williams Ayers than with real people like Hillary Clinton, John McCain, or Sarah Palin.

Of course, many people refer to Obama as BHO. If they're looking for a stinkier term, they could use "BO." Some people express their hope there will be no "BO" in a sweeter smelling world.

One of my favorite bloggers is Mahalo, a PUMA (Party-Unity-my-you-know-what) in Hawaii. She's one of TWO Hawaian bloggers, the other being another beautifully named woman, Malia.

In a recent post -- and she does outstanding ones -- Mahalo calls Barack "Bambi." She's writing about the report that Hillary Clinton might be forced (or deceived?) into a role as "Bambi's attack dog." Somehow, attacking Sarah Palin doesn't seem like a good career move for Mrs. Clinton. Perhaps it would be better -- and safer -- to attack Bambi?

Mahalo also calls Obama, an increasingly hapless, man "Gumby." She uses that term in the following piece: http://logisticsmonster.wordpress.com/2008/09/04/puma-politics-fight-your-own-battles-gumby/ Her point is that Obama's make-peace-not-war approach to life has turned him into a cartoon character, a wimp.

Anyway, he'd better watch out for Mahalo. Hint: her screen name is DiamondTiger.

Anyway, if you have your own favorite name for Barack Hussein Obama (alias "Gumby"), please send it to me at: TalkTop65@aol.com. Let's have some fun with this. Pretend you're Sarah Palin treating Obama like a human pinata.

Thanks to Sarah, America is waking up to see Obama for what he is…

“The emperor marched in the procession under the beautiful canopy, and all who saw him in the street and out of the windows exclaimed: “Indeed, the emperor’s new suit is incomparable! What a long train he has! How well it fits him!” Nobody wished to let others know he saw nothing, for then he would have been unfit for his office or too stupid. Never were the emperors clothes more admired.

“But he has nothing on at all,” said a little child at last. “Good heavens! listen to the voice of an innocent child,” said the father, and one whispered to the other what the child had said. “But he has nothing on at all,” cried at last the whole people”. Hans Christian Andersen (1837)

I wonder if Mr. Obama, much like the emperor in the Hans Christian Andersen story, is the willing victim of deceptive manipulating power brokers. Wake up America! The “One" has no clothes.

I think we should start using this Andersen story to exemplify BHO and begin calling him the “Emperor...!” and let the “Has no clothes” be implied.

I personally am glad that Governor Palin's "fresh breath of Alaskan Air" has finally brought the contrast home to the American People. I am saddened that it has taken this long for people to see what he truly is though. His suppression of all dissent does not bode well for America. On the upside, it has given regular Americans a reason to loudly and vocally say "We Are Patriots!"
