Obamunism

noun; blending
A somewhat pejorative description of Barack Obama’s stance on government and economic policies as being similar to communism.
 
One of the many novel creations using Senator Barack Obama's name during the 2008 presidential campaign. The blend makes use of the same vowel /a/ occurring in the second syllable of Obama and first syllable of communism.
Etymology : Obam, from the proper name Obama, + unism, from communism from French commun "common" and Latinate -ism "noun-forming".
