Walking Eagle

I offer insincere apologies in advance if this offends anyone.

President Obama was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upstate New York.

He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor of the Senate.

Although President Obama was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”

At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.” The proud President then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President.

They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.

Look up "walking eagle" on Snopes.com. It is not true. (Wish it was!) As said above, it has been going around for others for a long time.

It's an urban legend, just look at this http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/eagle.asp

The same story was said about President Bush, http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_walking_eagle.htm
