Bush Avoids Calling Obama by His Name
President Bush was asked twice last week about Sen. Barack Obama. In response, Bush never used the Democratic presidential candidate's name. As it turns out, Bush has uttered Obama's name only a handful of times since the senator from Illinois began running for the White House last year, according to a review of his public statements and appearances.

"Except McCain probably thinks a hedgehog is a kind of cat." This almost made me snort soda out my nose!

I agree with UnDave. I think it's just because he's speaking in response to questions and doesn't have to use the Senator's name.

That's something about Bush then Catepillar, he gives a lot of us tons to b*tch about without having to look hard.

Maybe this is part of the "let's keep the President as far away from the campaign as possible" strategy?

Bush has the intellect of a four-year-old and that's sort of an insult to four-year-olds.

Here's a thought. The only time Bush has talked about Obama is when he was questioned about Obama. I see it going like this: "Do you like Obama's stance on hedgehogs?" "I think his stance is completely out of line with the American public. McCain has a much better grasp on the hedgehog problem, and I think McCain would be better prepared to handle the hedgehogs."

WELL, maybe he isn't sure what the guy's name really is, legally! Is it Barry Dunham or Barry Dunham Soetoro? Or Barry Dunham Soetoro Obama? Or Barack Muhammad Hussein Obama II? WHERE is the Birth Certificate verifying not only Barry Dunham's legal name but also his place of birth? The BC on the Obama website has been proven to be a fraud. And when Barry Dunham Soetoro decided to use the Obama last name, where are the LEGAL DOCUMENTS verifying his name change? Just who is Barry Dunham Soetoro Obama? Does he exist on paper or just as a figment of his own mind? If I were President Bush, I'd be careful not to give a false statement by speaking the name of a man whose real, legal name is totally unknown. VERIFY his name is what he says it is, and I'm sure it won't be a problem to anyone to give his name. Who Is Barry Dunham Soetoro Obama and what is his legal place of birth and his legal name????????????

I don't know if it's looking for something to be 'pissed' about. Everything presidents do is catalogued and documented!

I can't believe this is a story. That means that someone took the time to go back and listen to him speak all of those times. Wow.

Maybe he can't pronounce it - I'm surprised he hasn't called him Osama yet.

I don't think it's sinister but it's probably on purpose.

I'm sure there's nothing sinister behind this, can you imagine George Bush being that petty?
