Seriously? Maybe because one has been president for four years and the other is just a blip right now with the potential of either becoming president or just another has-been?

Not to say that either doesn't deserve pitchfork wielding mobs...
We found 1140 results for "Obama" and an additional 6 that contained "Romney"" - likely because Obama's been president for four years.
A euphamism coined by and popular with the far right US commentariat.
"Let's skip the puerilities on HN if possible."
So you're saying we should stop being so childish and get back to the serious discussion about the neutral term "Obamanation"?
Don't get me wrong, I get what you're saying and half didn't want to publish with that word exactly but I searched and the alternative was some long clinical description. While it's important to avoid epithets it's also important to be concise and using one word to do the job of over 10 should also be striven for.
Spoilers: I live in a very dense apartment building and my wifi network is FBI_Surveillance_Van. I totally thought of it first.
I also filter mac addresses as plan b.

Can you believe Cristina (you know, the president) literally went and told a senator from her party in the middle of a speech "hey go easy with the nose candy"
Yeah so they guy went a little apeshit during an interview before that, but can you imagine a president telling that to a senator, from her own party, during a speech live on national TV?
That's Cristina, just to show the politicians in your country aren't as bad as you think.
gobama = Go Alabama
Almost all of the entrees in Alabama were GoBama :)
In college, my roommates and I spent at least 2 days trying to figure out the name for our router. We settled on "The girls upstairs suck" because some girls lived above us and we were college guys trying to be funny. Later on, it turned out they weren't paying for Internet and they were using ours. (We gave them the password so they could have Internet while theirs was getting "fixed")
I always try to name it something that passive aggressively yells at my neighbors. "Clean up after your dogs" "Don't be loud at 4AM". Right now it's called "Frasier Crane" because I just moved to Seattle and thought and used to like watching Frasier.
I love wi-fi names.
Most of the APs in my neighborhood are "myqwest.xxxx" and I've always thought that was a function of laziness/ apathy, but perhaps it is in the interest of not standing out? Probably not, but I wish more people took interest in their routers as they are becoming quite capable nowadays. Fon was/ is a cool idea, and I think some company should try to take it to the next level since Fon seems to have stopped innovating.
I think it's less about trying to sway people than it is about making a statement about yourself.
I always call mine something rude. It seems to effectively stop people trying to connect to it. Security by lack of obscurity.
Currently it's iloveanal
Maybe I should name mine "I can hear you having sex" in response.
I was amused to get the piece of paper with my router telling me the SSID was "OriginBroadband_hax". I never did change it!
Naturally, there are a bunch of Wifi access points called Free Wifi to confuse visiting Anglophones.
If you want to act like an inconsiderate 14 year old with your wifi, so will I!
People have a right to free speech, which neatly supports people having a right to be offended too but cannot do diddly to prevent saying it :)
As for being deauth attacked, I'll unwind the ethernet cable from the back of my router and wham it in my laptop and sip pure unpolluted internets.
I'm talking specifically about people who name their networks things like "Anal Creampie Snowball" or "Gaping Asshole".
I'm not saying what you're doing should be /illegal/ just that you're being a gigantic prick by doing it, and that you're inviting me to be a gigantic prick back to you.
