John Adams Blog

John Adams Blog

Have been listening to talk radio this past week and all the buzz is that we don't have to worry bout Hillory being our next President, it is going to be O'Bama! Isn't that GREAT? This should make the Paleo's very happy indeed, as it removes any chance that a Republican will be elected. Our future is assured.

Have we sunk so far that a guy named O'Bama could get elected? I haven't been following things as closely lately, but unless this guy has walked on water or healed a bunch of blind people (hey -- we wouldn't need new money!) I don't see a guy whose name sounds like Osama getting elected. I would think he'd be great to run against.

On the other hand, I could see the current GOP leadership advocating name changes for candidates so they can sound more like muslims/democrats.

Buzz around the airwaves is this guy has rock star like charisma. People stand in line for hours to get a chance to see him and touch him. Maybe he does walk on water and heal the sick, the Dems seem to think so anyway. It all has such an inevitable feel to it. People standing in line for hours to see and touch the charismatic John McCain? I don't think so.

Here I was hoping that Tommy Thompson will be the Republican candidate for President in '08. He's much more charismatic in my opinion than McCain.

I agree. Does he have the National constituency to swing the endorsement? The public persona with the media?

Knowing his re-election rates in Wisconsin, which, when it comes to Governor and National Elections historically goes Blue, any mud that could be slung already has and didn't stick. I think if Republicans want to keep the Presidency, they've got to come up with someone who's inside, but far enough removed to be an outsider that the media isn't necessarily going to find constantly available.

As for Thompson's persona with the media, he's pretty easy going and good with soundbites. On the issues, he would be the candidate who could rally the disgruntled conservative troops and still get the swing votes with the HHS issues. The question remains though whether or not he can swing the endorsement.

Make sure to get Obama's name right. It is:

Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.

With a name like that - golden!

I'm remarkably uninformed on this issue. Isn't Obama an immigrant, Constitutionally prohibited from the Presidency?

Are you talking about Hussein Obama?

I believe his mother was from Kansas.

According to Wikipedia, he was born 1961 in Hawaii (2 years earlier, and he would not have been US-born) to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya. His mother was from Kansas. His parents divorced when he was two and his mother married an Indonesian foreign student, moving to Jakarta with Obama when he was six years old. Obama then moved in with his grandparents in Hawaii. His mom sounds like an interesting character; maybe she's one of those City Pages Personals types.

The name probably is golden these days. I liked wht TK called him "Osama Bin Bama". I think TK was drunk at the time (big supprise).
