Barack Hussein Obama: The Big Bait and Switch

I know this will come as a Shock to some of you, but our President's full name is: Barack Hussein Obama. Yep, no need to abbreviate anymore, he has embraced his Middle name along with Muslim heritage and I guess that means we can too. Now.

As you may recall during the election, starting really in the Primaries it became a Huge issue to even say his middle name: Hussein. To the point where John McCain felt the need to tell everyone that it was inappropriate for Anyone to use it. Some went even further to suggest that saying Candidate Obama's middle name was "Hate Speech" Karl Rove, the Machiavellian architect was even reported to be on that bandwagon.

The Atlantic reported in February of 2008:
Rove said that the use of "Barack Hussein Obama" would perpetuate the notion that Republicans were bigoted and would hurt the party.

During the campaign, Obama even addressed the "Muslim" issue on his Fight The Smears website.

The Left wing so called "media watchdog", Media Matters covered the story at length in their article "Myths and Falsehoods about Barack Obama":

Evidence of its impact came on the February 9 edition of MSNBC's Hardball, when host Chris Matthews previewed Obama's official announcement, which occurred the next day in Springfield, Illinois, that he would seek the Democratic presidential nomination. Matthews hosted James Warren, Chicago Tribune managing editor for features, and Lynn Sweet, Chicago Sun-Times Washington bureau chief. Warren cited "the B.S. story about the, you know, the Muslim school in Indonesia," as "the sort of thing that is going to hit [Obama] and ... that could conceivably stymie him." Warren added that he has "run into folks who have bought into that total, absolute B.S."

Those of us who dared to reference Obama's own book, Dreams from my Father, where Obama wrote of his two years in a Muslim school, were deemed "Fearmongers" and "Bigots"....

Now all that has, ahem... Changed.

Jake Trapper at reports
During a conference call in preparation for President Obama's trip to Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said "the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to -- or before he's been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world -- you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago."

Wait a minute? Obama's father Barack Hussein Obama, Sr was a Muslim? That's not what Obama said during the campaign...

From the ABC article:

The candidate's comment at a Boca Raton, Florida, town
hall meeting on May 22, 2008, was typical: "My father
was basically agnostic, as far as I can tell, and I didn't
know him," he said.

The GatewayPundit call this turn around, Sick
. More like Sickening.

Candidate Obama claimed to be a Christian, but President Obama has said that the United States is "not a Christian nation", but instead one of the "largest Muslim nations in the world" and could be seen as a "Muslim Nation".

So Obama's got Muslim roots as the saying goes..Not that there is anything wrong with that. However since Barack Hussein Obama spent the entire campaign trying to cover up that fact, I do have a problem with it. If Obama had openly discussed his family tree and youth spent in Indonesia, not to mention that visit to Pakistan in 1981, and America voted for him anyway, that would be One thing. But He didn't. In fact Candidate Obama spent more time, attacking those that dare raise the questions, than He did answering them. Yet, now President Obama is reclaiming his Muslim roots as a way to curry favor in the Middle East.

As I tweeted out this morning: "In Advertising they have a name for what Obama has done: Bait and Switch".

I wish the American people would wake up, and the military should arrest him for crimes against the USA.

I warned everyone on my blog for months before the zombies elected him. I know what he and his handlers did in Chicago, now they are doing it nationwide! GOD help us all, Nice blog, take care.

Have you ever seen someone change - no pun intended - their colors so quickly as he does. It's amazing! When is the honeymoon over?

Oh but wait, the White House says BHO is responsible for the current uprising in Iran - yeah right, he's only responsible when it suits him, as soon as it doesn't, they'll find some way to blame Bush.

In the time since this post it has become even more plain that Obama is an apologist for western values and is impulsively submissive to the Islamic world.

This is so true, I just read another great story about how badly Obama is messing up this country. At least his numbers are falling which means some people are actually starting to wake up. If you have time check out this funny story about Obama:

It's a great head fake, and they are very good at it. I wouldn't count on most people waking up. Obama people are pretty smart. Look at NJ... Republican was way ahead and they brought in a third party to split the lead. They are possible of anything and they have powerful behind the scene ploys ready. Don't sit back, we need to get louder; people's heads are buried deep.

I am so used to reading the stilted rantings of the right but for some reason, this REALLY bugged me. I was PRESENT for so much of what this stupid girl is talking about. Obama never reacted to his name but the right surely did. They took such sick pleasure from pronouncing his middle name and McCain and that idiot Palin had made so much HATE come to the surface at their hate fests that McCain HAD to try to tune it down. People in THEIR audiences were spouting "KILL HIM".. Is that what you are referring to STUPID GIRL?????

I can't believe the untruths in this observation. Obama is an incredibly smart, concerned man. He saw how badly Bush had destroyed this country and wants to fix this. The description of Obama's reaction to the use of his last name is a total lie. McCain and Palin, who were loosing badly, had a uniformed off duty cop read Obama;s name as if they weere exposing a spy! Those two stupid people were so lost all they could do was to get all the HATE they could up and running. They told so many lies and got the stupid people at their hate fests so fired up that people could be heard saying "KILL OBAMA!" Nice going. McCain felt so responsible for this that e begged his people to realize that Obama was a good man. Palin couldn't stop. She was too stupid to stop!
