CROW AGENCY, Mont. -- Barack Obama is using the final primary contests to try to prove a Democrat can be competitive in stalwart Republican states. One approach: an aggressive outreach to boost American Indian turnout.
With the race for the Democratic presidential primary winding down, Sen. Obama has ramped up efforts in Montana and South Dakota, which hold primaries on June 3 and have typically elected Republicans. Oregon and Kentucky hold primary elections Tuesday.
As part of the Illinois senator's broader general-election strategy of bringing in new voters and independents in Republican strongholds, the Obama campaign has been recruiting its top organizers to lead efforts in the states, putting particular emphasis on the often overlooked American Indian population, which has proven to be a key swing vote in recent elections.
"I often talk about how the needs of Americans are going unmet in Washington. Well, few have been ignored in Washington as much as the Native Americans, the first Americans," Sen. Obama said at an event at the Apsáalooke Veteran Commemorative Park, a park on the Crow Indian Reservation built to honor American Indians killed in conflicts from the Battle of the Little Bighorn 1876 to the Iraq war.
Sen. Obama, who called himself his adoptive Indian name of Barack Black Eagle at the start of the event, vowed to cut through the bureaucracy of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, improve health care on reservations and make Washington officials visit reservations and meet with tribal leaders.

Don’t tell me—his great-great grandfathers both killed each other at the Little Bighorn.
An earlier FReeper coined it as “Walking Eagle” because he’s so full of feces that he can’t fly.
Chief Running Sore declined to comment.
Shouldn’t it be Barack Half-Black Eagle?
“...called himself his adopted Indian name of barak Black eagle.....”
Adoptive by WHO?????????????????
I am part native American, Indian, whatever you call it...I just call it American....I am a member of the Ani-yun-wiya
nation...know to some as Tsalagi...know to most as Cherokee.
I expressly resent and am offended by this POS using this tactic as a political tool...
His uncle was the first indian to kill Custer.
What’s Michelle’s name? Nagging Crow?
Obama's recent Idiot Quote of the Century:
'My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."
Little Big Man’s Grandfather: “Ah yes , the black white man . Not as ugly as the white man , but just as crazy .”
I like "Dances with Gaffs" better. Any other suggestions?
This ?man? claims a relative liberated concentration camp prisoners from the Nazis when speaking to a Jewish audience...then claims an “adoptive” tribal name when speaking to Native American tribesmen.....
He totally has no shame....The consumate politician...
This is where this country has gone...to allow garbage like Obama a chance to ?lead? the country....
The founders are crying in their graves........
Ah, but Obama is half white. Which half, we don't know. But obviously his black half, his white half and his Indian half are all warring against each other.
How about “Squats On Roses” for a name?
Boonie might know, but I thought Indian was now un-PC, Native American being preferred, but I suppose Obama knows best.
Ah ~ those were the days!! >:-}
LOL. We can but don't have to, Obama is renaming himself every 3 days or so. His sincere, slick talkin' image is coming apart. Americans of all political persuasions are seeing him for the sleeze-ball , closet-black-nationalist, Muslim appeasing/supporting, Islamofascist supporting/appeasing, Wing Nut he truly is.
When he visits HOOTERS will he change his name to Scooter? Only Michelle Nagging Crow knows for sure.
Meanwhile we munch our pop corn and enjoy this idiot's circus.John McCain gonna eviscerate Obammer.
Barak Lying Dog.
Put him in the sweat lodge and pray he melts altogether.
