Rush Buries Barack Hussein Obama

Barack Hussein Obama challenged Congressman Bobby Rush in the March 2000 Illinois Democratic primary.

Rush inflicted a defeat of landslide proportions on Obama-- better than 2 to 1.

Maybe this qualifies Barack Hussein to be president, since B. J. Bill Clinton and George W. Bush both lost general elections for the U. S. House.

I don’t know if your’ using the middle name because you’ve been taken in by the dishonest email claiming he is a Muslim or because you are deliberately trying to smear him by association with a group you know most American distrust, but in either case it’s pretty lame. He’s a Christian.

Calling a person by his full name is "lame"? How so?

If the gentleman doesn't like his name, maybe he should consider changing it.

Are you also troubled by people calling Mitt Romney by his first name-- Willard?

If I came off rough in that I apologize. I usually don’t, especially with a first post like that. Hi, by the way.

Look, if you really didn’t mean anything unsavory by that, then I’ll apologize. But I find it hard to believe that one would deliberately use someone’s middle name when they themselves don’t without a specific reason. There’s a reason you would go to the trouble. So what was it? What prompted you to go out of your way and include his middle name?

It is my opinion that the most plausible reason is that you are aware of the dishonest emails and rumors going around that try to associate him with Islam and are attempting to further that rumor. If I’m wrong, please correct me and I’ll apologize.

I've been calling Sen. Obama that ever since I learned that was his name. It has nothing to do with religion or e-mails.

It's common practice to ridicule public figures whom one does not like. I, for instance, have called Sen. McCain "Crazy John," "Insane McCain," and "Still-in-Saigon John."

I've also called Gov. Huckabee "Tax Hike Mike Huckster-bee."

Nixon's opponents used to call him by his full name, Richard Milhous Nixon. They also called him "Tricky Dick."

And I usually call Slick Willie "Slick Willie."
