We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Anything that Obama can do to make people in the middle east stop wanting to become terrorists or otherwise kill us is ok with me. Making that speech and pointing out that his middle name is 'Hussein' may very well have changed the mind of some kid watching TV in Palestine who would otherwise have walked into a Hamas office a year from now and volunteered to become a suicide bomber. For some number of young Muslim men watching Obama and hearing his middle name, he gave them a moment where suddenly they thought that America might be a country that they can talk to instead of shooting at.
The man is saving American lives. You should be grateful.
