Reader comment on item: Why I Am Not Writing About Iran
in response to reader comment: OBAMA IS NOT IRISH

Submitted by There is NO Santa Claus (United States), Mar 26, 2012 at 22:04

I have long spelled President O'Bama's name as such because he is a product of the Chicago Democratic Party Political Machine. The only reason he is our President is because the entire City of Chicago political machine used their vacation/holiday time during the Christmas 2007 holiday season to campaign for him in Iowa which is a mere 2.5 hour drive from Chicago. Once he won the Iowa Caucus in January 2008, he never looked back.

No other candidate could put as many "boots on the ground" in Iowa (during the 2008 election season) as O'Bama. It had everything to do with geography and the Cook County Democratic Party (CCDP) Political Machine.

For that reason, I have always spelled his name "O'Bama". He may be of marginal Irish ancestry, but believe me! He knows the "secret handshake". :+)
