The caption the authors wrote under the Anointed One's photo I can only hope is prescient:
Some people said that a man with such an unusual name could never win the election. These people had apparently forgotten that we'd had presidents named Rutherford, Ulysses, Millard, Grover, and Lyndon. They were all part of our "forgotten presidents" sections.The only people I recall complaining about Barack's first name is himself & his surrogates, presumably to fish for sympathy. In addition to which, he legally changed his name, himself. Dinesh Dsouza's points out in his book The Roots of Obama's Rage that Obama's christened name is "Barry" & that Obama, himself, changed his name to "Barack" either to honor his father, or to make himself sound more exotic. As Dsouza states, most people Americanize their names in order to blend in with society. Conversely, Obama exoticized in order to stand out. If "Barry" didn't want people to notice his exotic first name of "Barack", then why did he change it? Did he do it for extra attention, or so he could perennially play the victim?
