Barack Hussein Obama has changed his middle name. According to NewsGnome's sources hidden deep in the Obama administration, Obama's new middle name is Cheney. Barack Cheney Obama.
When asked why he changed it to "Cheney" Obama said it's because since he continued the exact policies of Dick Cheney for his whole administration which finally led to the Killing of Osama bin Laden, he said he thought he should show thanks to the real person who's policies made it happen.
Besides, this is some of the best press Obama has gotten since his Democrat nomination acceptance speech and since Dick was so instrumental in establishing the policies that benefit Obama, it was only fair. Also an FOIA documents also reveals that Obama had checked out and carefully read most of Cheney's documents so he could figure out how to get Osama so he could improve his poll numbers.
