Anybody else find the moniker "Obammy" distasteful?


Maybe it's just me but, it conjures up unsettling bits of North American history.

Yes, it's definitely distasteful.

Predictable, but distasteful nonetheless.

I find the action of President Obama far more distasteful, damaging, and dangerous.

I suspect after eight years of the same treatment towards Mr. Bush it was unavoidable. Some of the things said about Mr. Bush were not just distasteful.

Name calling is one of the weakest ways to argue a point.

But "Obammy" suggests a little boy or cartoon character to me, rather than anything racist.

And hopefully, before he does any further damage, that's how history will remember him.

It has an Al Jolson flavor.

It actually says more about the user of the monicker than it does about the recipient of it - like most name-calling.

If that was the worst I had ever been called, I wouldn't worry about it. Pales in comparison to what Palin, her son, and her daughter went through.....how soon some things are forgotten.

I find that people who find silly things like "Obammy" untasteful, are uselessly stuck in the past and can't let racism go. The PC fascists are predicatable and silly silly people.
