Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Barack Obama's name.

First, Obama is half white, so not really an african american, since we can also say he is Euro American. He also has ties to the Bush clan though many times back and twice removed. The fact is, Africans use the name of their family, yes, but one of the names is the middle name, hence, Hussein would suggest past roots in the Muslim faith.

We have entered an age that will put anyone in office as long as it is a corporate party. We missed our chance for real change in Ron Paul, a true patriot for his belief in the constitution and where government falls within its pages. I am afraid for what will become now, but I am sure that now we will see our independece disappear into the global government of the U.N. God save us all now. Hold on to your seats and get ready for an incredible ride, this will truly be historic, as everyone is running around showing off! The world is definitely excited by our own ignorance and lemming-like following of our ridiculous two-party system. Remember, Obama is half white.
