My name is Barack Hussein Obama II and I am the President of the United States

January 26th, 2011 by Michael Tabor

Mr. President, there as never been a president or politician for whom I have the most unadulterated utmost respect and admiration; my adulation for you is borderline worship. I will just touch on one unthinkable hurdle over which you triumphed and then ask a question regarding your foreign policy game plan. My name is Michael Tabor and the really banal obstacle of overcoming certain erroneous associations with just your name Barack (Muslim- blessed one) Hussein (last name of the leader with whom we were at war) and Obama (one letter away from the first name of the worst enemy the United States has ever had)…..

I don’t know if people were aware of the fact that Barack Obama will be interviewed and fielding select questions for a YouTube interview on 1/27/2011 just two days after the big State of the Union address tonight. Inasmuch as the address will take place tonight, Tuesday, January 27, 2011, YouTube was really promoting this opportunity to actually have a chance to ask the President a question. Anyone who would say I was being a bit pollyannaish to think that my question would be selected would not be wrong. (After all who none other than a pollyanna would quit his job and become a fulltime blogger with no other qualifications other than the ability to write and knowingly persevere despite being severely challenged in terms of any marketing and IT skills.) Well unfortunately I only got this far as the aforementioned today before the site advised me that my question was too long and then in an attempt to abbreviate my query, I had technical difficulties so I abandoned it and I figured I would just blog about it.

I firmly believed that Obama was indeed easily the most qualified candidate and a force to be reckoned with but I must admit I earnestly thought that the American people were going to extirpate him simply because of the man’s name. Not to mention the fact that he was also black; The 1st African American president.

President Obama inherited a host of some of the most troublesome problems this country has ever had to face; two wars – one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan and a crippling economy as bad as the Great Depression. As a matter of fact I think we would have to probably go back to FDR in 1933 in terms of having to grapple with so many problems.

I am enormously pleased that the American public elected the right man for the right job. Obviously I can blog several books on Obama and his presidency up until the midterms but I really wanted to just touch on the quite trite influence a person’s name may affect people’s decision making.

So whadawethink? Did the name bother you? Did it affect you in any way shape or form? Or did you view it as sheer coincidence, as I did and focused on the real issues at hand and the terrible condition in which the country was left after the Bush administration.
