US election: 'When Your Name Is Barack Hussein Obama, Getting Elected Is Difficult' Prejudice among some American voters will make it difficult for President Barack Obama to win re-election, he has suggested.
The remarks were made on ABC's The View By Jon Swaine 15 May 2012
Asked during a television interview how close he expected the result of November's presidential election to be, Mr Obama said: "When your name is Barack Obama, it's always tight". After a host noted that his full name was "Barack Hussein Obama," he repeated this twice, stressing the middle name that has led conspiracy theorists to claim erroneously that he is secretly Muslim.
The remarks, made on ABC's The View, appeared to be a rare admission by Mr Obama that four years after he became the first black US president, his ethnicity continues to repel some American voters.
Asked "why do you say that now, after four years?" Mr Obama appeared to gather his thoughts and said: "I think it's going to be tight because the fact of the matter is, the country has gone through a very difficult time the worst financial crisis, the worst economic crisis, since the 1930s."

Well, why not try some more of that “hope and change,” it worked last time around.

That is kind of a weird claim, after you have already been elected President, and are saying it from the Oval Office.
Oy. This guy does not give up on this, does he? Even after having been elected the first time around. Because we have such antipathy toward people who have “different” names.
It has nothing to do with “Prejudice”. It has everything to do with being the worst President in the countries history.
If this were true he wouldn't have been elected in the first place.
Unless the GOP throws the fight. Again.
Ahh suck it up ya loser, oh wait: errr, let me rephrase that.
LOL! Good one.
When you launch your political career in the living room of two 60-70s communist terrorists, or when your “spiritual adviser” for more than 20 years says “God-D*** America, US to blame for 911, America’s chickens...are coming home...TO ROOST!, when you (Obama) and Osama both had friends who bombed the Pentagon, it doesn’t help matters much either. And this doesn’t include all the destructive things he’s done as president
He got elected last time BECAUSE he was black.
Racist blacks and Guilt ridden white put him in.
After looking at his record as President, I don’t think there is enough white guilt left to carry his load again.Of course the black vote is a given.
And because he promised to give away lots of free stuff. Actually take it from others to give away as if it were his.
"Prezidentin' is Harrrd!"
If he loses in November he obviously will have been fired. So will it be racism that resulted in his dismissal or will it be his poor performance over the previous 45 months?
He's a professional victim.
It's a black thing.
Or maybe a half-black thing.
Or maybe a half-Arabic thing.
Electing a communist named Barak Hussein Obama as POTUS is easy.
He is a symptom of the disease caused by Universal Suffrage
enacted via Constitutional Amendment, against the warnings of the Founders, who deliberately did not include a Right to Vote in the Constitution.
The Fifteenth Amendment prohibited discrimination of the right to vote based on race or former status of involuntary servitude.
The Seventeenth Amendment provided for the direct election of Senators.
The Nineteenth Amendment prohibited discrimination of the right to vote based on sex.
The Twenty Fourth Amendment prohibited the use of a poll tax.
The Twenty Sixth Amendment allowed all citizens over the age of 18 who are not otherwise disqualified the right to vote.
Not to mention Motor Voter, to round up any imbeciles who couldn’t find the Registrars office but could find the DMV, and of course the latest push by the marxists to enfranchise felons and illegals.
The moral of the story being that we are doomed to collapse unless the Franchise is limited.
So, I wonder why he chose that name to use?
Actually, it had more to do with 52% of America just being plain s-t-u-p-i-d and full of their own White Guilt.
What a jerk. While it’s true that the press tried to hide the “Hussein” part of it, most Americans were so well-schooled in Bush-and-America hatred that they probably thought the foreign, Muslim name was a good thing rather than a warning sign. I bet he got votes because of his name, rather than losing them.
That’s not going to work this time around because the novelty has worn off. However, since Romney’s positions are little different from Obama’s, most people will probably vote for the loser they know.
When he was sworn in to office he used Barack Hussein Obama
which I thought was interesting since John MCCain refused to use Obamas midddle name duirng the 2008 campaign as it was off limits.
Make that single white women (divorced, separated, single or widowed) who according to Gallup in 2008 voted “OVERWHELMING” for Obama and gave him the election even against a weak McCain.
Perpetual self-loathing, so a pity party is always close at hand.
He knows his dad was a failure, but resented the white folk he lived with.
Too bad he doesn't understand the Presidency is truly not about black nor white, it's about being the President of the United States.
It'll probably dawn on him next February when he's sitting at home in Chicago drinking his first cup of coffee in his kitchen, watching Mittens announce a 100-Day Plan to right the sinking ship of state...
I was under the impression that Obummer couldn’t get elected with a name like Barry Soetoro or Barry Obama, so changed it. If his name was Dick Smith, he’s still be a p*ss poor president.
Yep; there were several other demographic/age/vocation voter groups who did the same d-u-m-b thing.
The term she used throughout the Speech was “Poor George”, making fun of his Family's Wealth and implying he was born with a Silver Spoon in his mouth.
Imagine Governor Palin giving a speech using the term “Poor Barack”. The Race Riots would start before she walked off the stage. Poor Barack, just another misunderstood Commie.
“So will it be racism that resulted in his dismissal or will it be his poor performance over the previous 45 months?”
IT WILL BE his poor performance and his arrogance and narcissism plus thousands of other outrages he’s pulled over the previous 45 months. Plus his WHINING and blaming. - Did I mention his whining and blaming?
The simple truth is the left dredges up every possible excuse for failure so they can deflect the real reason for their failure - what they propose doesn’t work - and has never worked no matter how many times its been tried.
Important keywords there are "According to Jeremiah Wright", because, in reality, it's BS. Wright's Black Liberation Theology is about communism and revolution. It's an entirely bogus religion concocted by communists decades ago. Farrakhan's so-called "Nation of Islam" is another "Black Liberation" communist front movement. Farrakhan and Wright are very good friends.
When you are a commie puke, it’s always Americas fault.
When you've demonstrated over and over that you're an incompetent doofus, not getting fired is going to be even more difficult for you.
Does a Barack Hussein Obama have more difficulty getting elected than a Srboljub Nenad Radosavljevic?
From your keyboard to The Almighty’s cosmic monitor. A guy at work keeps saying the republic is all but buried. But I say that God still loves us and He will get us through this.
Being a homo Red race baiter hasn’t helped him either.
I don't give a crap what Wright SAYS he did regarding Obama. Both are communists. They don't truly believe in religion, ANY religion. They just use religion (phony, concocted religions) as a means of advancing their communist ideology. That's what Black Liberation Theology is all about. Communists need to lie through their teeth in order to get people to listen to them. They can never be honest about who and what they are, and what they want to do to this country.
