Barack Obama
I'm totally for Obama and I'm very happy he won. But that's beside the point. Let's clear some stuff up, shall we?

#1- Barack Obama was NOT born in Kenya. His father was, yes. But not him. His mother and father met in Hawaii. THAT is where barack was born.



#2- He most likely does not have a muslim background.

His father was raised in a small village in Kenya where many people were muslim, but he was not. Barack's mother was a Christian woman and he's been going to the same christian church for like, twenty years. But regardless of his religion, the generalization that muslims are terrorists and/or bad people need to end.



#3- His name has nothing to do with terrorism or sadam hussein, nor is it representative of his so called muslim faith! For the love of God, thats the most juvenile argument like ever. His muslim name comes from his father: Barack Hussein Obama Senior! And last time I checked, people don't usually choose their birth names.


--->Barack Obama is not some kind of strange outsider. If he was, the government would not swear him in. He obviously has credibility if the government is entrusting him with great responsibility for our country.


--->internet sources and magazines that are not directly spoken/written by Obama are NOT credible background checks.


Overall, obama's presidency will not be about his background. If you don't like Obama, fine, that's cool. We are all entitled to our opinion. However, you are an American. You live in America, and whether you like it or not Barack Obama is now leading your country, and if you're a good and loyal citizen, you'll be open minded about your new president. If you can't do that, then move to Canada.


And if you're going to argue about Obama, argue his political standpoints, not his background. Because i guarantee you you'll will make an a** of your self and display your sheer ignorance.
