    Our president iis elected from American. If you disrespect him that mean you disrespect American people. Please, stop being so ignorant.

    No it is not okay to disrespect any President of the United States. We must always respect the office of the Presidency no matter who holds it any given time. You can disagree with policies, taxes, wars or whatever other issue but you must respect the office. This has been true of every President that I've seen and I was born under Truman.
    The disrespect shown to President Obama is precedent setting. I have never seen so much disrespect thrown at any of our Presidents. It's not right and it needs to stop.

    Well, you can start by reviewing the slanders perpetrated against this President

    John Adams

    and continue through references to Jackson as a 'jackass', Lincoln as a 'baboon', Cleveland's bastard child, T. R. referring to Wilson as a physical and moral coward, Lyndon Johnson and the chants of 'Hey, Hey LBJ... How many kids did you kill today...' all the way through the current occupant of the oval office. You can probably overlook William Henry Harrison as he didn't really have a long enough to tenure to really piss anyone off.

    Like it or not, historically, it's the American way...

    Yes it is. The potus is only a man. He is not immune to disrespect just because he temporarily resides in the whitehouse.

    No,it's rude,obnoxious and disrespectful. We seem to be going farther down the road of disgusting behavior where this president is concerned.

    Respect the office, the person in that office however needs to earn the respect. In my opinion we need more people to be straight forward and ask the questions that aren't being asked.
    That's part of the job as media, to be the watchdogs of government. To illuminate the dark side, and bring clarity to obfuscation.

    Yep. Respect is earned.

    I haven't seen one single thing that Obama has done to earn respect from the American people.

    The chronic complainer is in for a BIG SHOCK on November 6, 2012 IF we're allowed to have that election.

    Yes it is; a lot of people didn't have any compunctions about showing Bush disrespect, so I don't see why liberals get their panties in a bunch about those who disrespect Chairman Maobama.

    The instance of it I'm talking about is from Bush's Presidency and has nothing to do with Obama.

    Chris the point of this whole post was to ask the question, is it right to disrespect the a president or the office of the White house.

    I see that. I understand what you were saying. Yes folks did dog on Bush as well as they have on Obama. What I was saying is it OK during a speech or State of the Union to stand up and disrespect the Office
  • Christo... Sinpac 2012/06/17 18:46:52

    I personally am coming to think the office is nothing unless the man(yes, MAN) shows it honor, and I notice the ones who have dishonored it the most in recent times(Clinton and Obama) have been Democrats.

    Disgusting, and apparently the "in" thing to do for many people these days. You don't have to like the POTUS, but at least respect the office. Too many won't even do that much. Again, disgusting!

    Never during a speech if one has been taught any manners, and respect for the office of the president even if they dislike the occupant of the White House. It is unpatriotic and not polite.

    And he predicted how Obama would destroy America' and if you don't like this as good evidence; fine; The Dems called him every vile name; called his daughters and his wife filth; and asked for his head on a block for the acts done by filthy Muslims
    I don't care how you feel about BHO......he is not a president.he is a destroyer of the faith of America...

    "The Dems called him every vile name" Show me where they did this on a speech or a State of the union address. The boo's we hear all the time. On the Muslim thing I might point out Reagan sold arms and supported Bin Laden to break the USSR. and when that was done our country turned or back on them remember that? I am not condoning what happen during 9/11 and I was pretty upset about it. maybe people need to read what has been going on from post WWII to present on our Arab relations then people would have the whole story.

    Isn't that politics? However, no one ever rudely interrupted either in a speech on the state of the union, or an announcement in the Rose Garden.

    That what I am saying. If that was President Bush that guy would have been dragged out of there never to return.
