Why do some refer to Obama as "Barry"?

Why do many on here refer to Obama as "Barry"? It's not his name. I don't hear anyone calling McCain "Jack" or "Mac".

Because Barack himself use to go by Barry. There was a time in his life when he was ashamed of his own name. Gee I wonder why?

Are you an Obama supporter that knows little to nothing about his background?

Because calling him by his given name, Barack Hussein Obama, has been labeled as racism.

No, I'm not an Obama supporter.

But I did just look up the "Barry" usage. He was nicknamed Barry as a child by his family to avoid confusion since his dad was Barack Sr. When Obama left for college he told his family no more Barry, his name was Barack.

It would be similar to if an individual of Middle Eastern descent named Mohammed preferred to be addressed as Moe in America

His name is and was Barry Soetoro when he lived in Indonesia. His faith was officially Islam aka Muslim during that time as well according to his school records. Soetoro was his step-fathers name which he took when his mother married Lolo Soetoro.

And here is another example of how Barry is a lying sack of shit. He lied to the Illinois Supreme Court on his Attorney Registration Card. He listed no other names or alias other than Barrack Obama.

He was Barry Soetoro for years. Has no one been paying attention??

He went by Barry until college, until he realised that Barrack had a certain militant ring to it. It met with his socialistic preferences of idols in college, also.
