RE: Obama kids names

Reader comment on item: Obama's Mansion, Saddam's Money
in response to reader comment: The names chosen for Obama's children

I know Barbara is sick of all this so, I'll just use her opening msg to respond to others.

As for whether or not Obama named his kids because he is Islamic or Arab: It's just another chink in his armor. We can surmise all we want about it being possibly for any other reason(s).

The point is, collectively, with all the other associations he has with radical Islam, the choice of names is obvious. He loves and respects radical Islam therefore he names his children accordingly. What's the big mystery.

Trying to draw this line off course because of some other reason Obama might have had, is ridiculous and a disservice to Barbara. She has Obama's number perfectly well.
