I don't understand how his name in a post 9/11 world makes a difference. I mean, yes -- he will no doubt be tested by either Russia or another terrorist attack within his first year in office. And his inexperience is really going to show at that point. But how the hell does his name figure into it? Why muddy the waters with inflammatory crap when there is a sound argument to be made about obamas inexperience in a leadership role?

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

It was also quoted on Fox 5

Here is the Link to the story-

Biden Channels Joe Namath, Chicken Little - Political Machine

Btw, JFK Failed the test. In todays world its much more dangerous to fail the test.

Is this a joke?

doesnt matter, these attitudes of most white people today are reflecting their ancestors for hate towards irish and german people, regarding surnames and americans hate towards catholic churches(religion).

His name should have nothing to do with this. People should vote on the issues.

Truth is nobody cares what ones name is HOWEVER. names like Plaxaco, Placenta, D'brickashaw and a host of others are great for medicinal value. Laughter does one good you know.
