    Default Bigoted wingnut thinks it's 'bizarre' Obama will use his middle name at swearing in

    It was really hard to excerpt the original Politico article this story came from, simply because it was filled with so much damn stupid. Apparently Rep. Steve King thinks it's "bizarre" for President-elect Obama to use his full name during the swearing-in ceremony, presumably because his middle name is "Hussein" rather than some good ol' American name like "Arnold."

    Politico:


    He doesn’t like the fact that the president-elect will be sworn in using that middle name during Tuesday’s Inauguration.

    After telling the Associated Press last year that Obama’s middle name was among the reasons Islamic terrorists would rejoice over his election, King says he’s since been careful to avoid using it. Thus he found Obama’s decision to allow it be mentioned on the steps of the Capitol “bizarre” and “a double-standard.”

    “Is that reserved just for him, not his critics?” King asked.

    How can someone this oblivious/dumb/racist (take your pick) get elected to Congress? The problem is not saying Barack Hussein Obama --the problem is when you stress Hussein and use it to imply that, because of his name, he is somehow un-American. I know wingnuts like to pretend that that's not their intention, but come on. We saw it over and over and over during the campaign.croos liar real estate apartment at crooskandliars.com

    Yeah it's "bizarre", because no other past president has used his full name when being sworn in.

    What a jackass.

    King thinks it's "bizarre" and a "double standard" for Obama to use his own middle name since he can't use it to stir up anti-Muslim hate. Gee people, get with the program.

    This idiot would probably be bitching if Obama didn't use his middle name. It would be 'why won't he use his middle name? what's he hiding?'

    The boy's name Hussein \hu(s)-sein\ is pronounced hoo-SAYN. It is of Arabic origin, and its meaning is "good; small handsome one". The name of a prominent person in Shiite Islam and a royal name in Jordan. American President Barack Hussein Obama.

    Hussein - meaning of Hussein name

    It's a common enough name. Get over it.

    I guess someone should tell the King of Jordan to change his name too.

    Rep. Steve King
    Okay, so this guy's real name is Steven King, as in STEPHEN KING.... (cue Twilight Zone music).


    Whose middle name SHOULD he use? Mine?

    "I, Barack Brooke Obama......" doesn't sound right, somehow.

    What a fool - there is a BBC America anchor called Michele Hussein - is she a freakin terrorist? Does King want her removed from the BBC? What a total idiot.

    i find it kinda ironic what his name is obama being very similar to osama and hussein, obviously saddam hussein. then theres the racist bigots who think its bad because of its arabic connections.
    i admire him so much for being proud of his name and not changing it or anything like that.
