    Just another attack piece loaded with innuendo and character assassination.

    I have to admit the clips made me think. It really makes me hope he is not all the things or any of them honestly that this video accuses him of because he has a good chance of being our next leader. I imagine if these things are true in the damaging light presented then we'll see more shake out from the GOP during the upcoming debates and campaign adds.

    Everything was right from his own mouth. It just goes to show that "A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."

    It goes to show how gullible people are today and how it will be possible for the masses to be deceived by the Anti-Christ.

    I must speak out against the use of Mr. Obama's middle name "Hussein"

    There is no explanation for the use of this middle name except one or both of the following:

    a. an attempt to establish some kind of connection between Mr. Obama and Saddam Hussein.

    b. an attempt to establish some kind of connection between Mr. Obama and elements of Islamic extremism.

    Perhaps the writer of the OP was unconsciously piggy-backing on this deeply cynical and decidedly unChristian use of rhetoric, and should be therefore granted a pass on this.

    Let us be clear though, this smear tactic is the way the world does politics. Christians engaged in trying to build for the kingdom should not use such an approach.

    Of course you are correct. It is an attempt at character assassination by proxy.

    As I have mentioned before, it is a common name, as well as the name of America's friend in the Middle East, the late King Hussein of Jordan.

    Agreed!

    Unfortunately, this type of attack will only intensify until after the election in November. I wonder what these people will say after President Obama is hopefully sworn in on January 20, 2009.

    You may find it isn't so much fun watching wailing and gnashing of teeth after all is said and done...you and others may be in for a surprise from Mr. Obama and those he appoints and his changes for America. And you won't be able to say you weren't warned ahead of time.:tear:

    I find it an attempted slur by inuendo, with the inconsistent usage of purportedly "full names", none of which I hear all that often. And this is nowhere near the number of 'sideways' attempted slurs I have seen, in this regard.

    Incidentally, the name of Sen. Clinton is not "Hillary", but rather Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton.

    The name of Sen. McCain is not "McCain" but rather John Sidney McCain, III.

    The name of Sen. Obama is not "Obama" nor even "Barack Hussein Obama". Rather, it is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.

    Didn't I read on another thread that Hussein is a muslim name, given only yo muslims?
    I'm sure I don't really care what his name is. His actions and words are enough for me to know who he is.

    Are you saying we should not use his middle name because it could imply something? Perhaps then we should also not use his first name or his last name! His middle name is what it is and, like most of us, there's some basis for the choosing of our names by our parents. It may not be anything more than just a unique identifier to the person carrying it and it doesn't mean that because someone else has the same name that the subject carries all the same charater. Regardless, it is his name and there's nothing at all wrong with using it or even inquiring as to its origins. Names have always carried some significance and in the Bible it's given a measure of importance even to the extent that people we sometimes given new names to signify change in their lives.

    No, and you are not so dumb as to believe this either. What he is saying is that it is being used in a disingenuous way. And from donnA's post, you can see how she believes that a name given to Muslims make a person named after their father a Muslim. So I guess everybody named Chris, Christopher, or Christian are, in fact Christians. Read the post . . . does Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton get referred to that way? It is obvious that this is a not-so-subtle way to plant doubt about Obama in the minds of the uncritical thinkers and weak minded. You know, the typical M.O. of the GOP.

    Using Mr. Obama's middle name is to "do politics" the way that the world does and is entirely against the values of the Kingdom of God.

    Readers will know what is going on here. The use of a person's middle name is highly unusual. Do we hear references to Hillary Ann Clinton"? Do we hear references to John William McCain? (I am making up these middle names - I do not know the real ones - that should be telling in and of itself).

    No we do not. The unusual decision to use Mr. Obama's middle name has only a number of explanations - all of which are deeply cynical and have absolutely no defence in the life of the obedient Christian.
