Nobama

interjection; blending
Used to express opposition to Senator Barack Obama as he ran for president in 2008.
 
Another novel creation from the 2008 presidential campaign that takes advantage of the vowels in the surname Obama. It was unique in that unlike other some other plays on the candidates name, this term never really replaced the name Obama in normal sentences. Instead, it was mainly used as a counter-campaign cry as shown in the example.
Etymology : No and Obama, proper name.
