All Eyes On Me:

When President elect Obama takes the stage on Jan. 20, most people will be watching to witness yet another monumental moment in his historical journey toward the presidency. However, some people will be less concerned with the inauguration than others. These people will be listening closely, not to Barack's plans for fundamental change in America, but to what name he uses when he's sworn in.

There are a lot of folks making issues out of Barack using his middle name during the inauguration proceedings. Some people feel like him using his proper name, Barack Hussein Obama will be the death of America as we know it. Others feel like because it wasn't used during his campaign toward the white house, it shouldn't be used now that he's in.

In my opinion this is one of those, "who gives a damn," kind of situations. This man has nothing to apologize for at all. His patriotism has been questioned, his foreign and native alliances have been questioned, his citizenship has been questioned, and now his middle name? To anyone still in shock that the president is a black man from Hawaii who has a muslim name, get over it. The people have spoken, and whoever is still living in doubt has until Jan. 20, 2009 to come to terms with the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is your next president no matter how many times you question it.
