What’s in a name? That which we call a liberal by any other name would be as Left in political orientation. Thus, I am not a’twitter at the revelation that Barack Obama’s middle name is Hussein, something that escaped from the blogosphere and into a Maureen Dowd column last week.
While names can be a tip-off about someone’s religion or ethnicity, the fact is that Obama’s up front about his liberal Christianity. Considering that Obama, regardless of his inexperience, has managed to compile a record of his thoughts and votes, we don’t need to dig around in his birth certificate for secret information about him. Middle name or not, he is what he is. I don’t like what he is, but it has nothing to do with his middle name, that’s for sure.
