You said:

No; but Barack Obama's middle name is Hussein, the same last name as Saddam Hussein. Although Obama had some Islamic education around ages 6-10, he is Christian, a member of the United Church of Christ for over 20 years.

Yes, a member of a church with a rabid and dangerous anti-american extremist preacher affiliated with the Nation of Islam, Farakhan, and preaching extreme ideas like the CIA purposefy put drugs on the street to keep the black man down and in prisons, that the US Govt infected the African american community with AIDS to cause genocide, that the US is the same as Al Qaeda, etc. etc.

Interestingly, it has been recently revealed that Barack Obama is an 8th cousin of U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney.

Only through his white mother's family. His father's family are in Kenya, where his half brother is a muslim extremist, his cousin Odinga is head of the separatist revolutionary movement (which Obama has donated money to). If he were president, would all of them have to be airlifted from the fields in order to protect a U.S President?

Obama's Muslim father had his last contact with his family when Obama was two

Not altogether true, Obama's father (to whom he dedicated his lovely book :"Dreams of my father") abandoned him when he was two, took some new wives, and died in an alcohol induced car crash years later. Obama's mother remarried another Muslim man who then took her to Kenya where Obama received his muslim education. The mother couldn't hack it, so she sent Obama back to live with her parents, his white grandparents, in Hawaii after the age of 10.

At least know the facts if you are making a decision this important. I won't even go into so many other issues with Obama.
