That’s cool…I don’t have a problem with disagreements. I try to look at it as an opportunity to consider/try and understand why one feels the way he does; that’s not to say we’ll ever come to an agreement. I’ve seen you write your thoughts about this same subject in the past, so I’m not surprised. But I would like some examples of why you feel that way.
Here is why I say President Obama has been disrespected as the president and the institution of the office not including the example Spatic used:
First the birth certificate debacle; How many presidents had to prove their citizenship over and over and over again publicly?
Then his wife, the first lady of the U.S., being publicly insulted by another congressman about her appearance and booed at a NASCAR event in support of the troops. How many presidents had their wives publicly insulted in such a manner?
How many presidents were disrespected by a championship team’s member by publicly boycotting the president by refusing to attend an award ceremony hosted by the United States President? There may be some, but I haven’t seen or heard it publicly announced.
How many presidents you know have been refused to address the Congress on the date of his choosing regardless of party’s scheduled event in conflict? Then when the address finally happen, it was publicly announced by one or a couple they were going to boycott the address; what? Has that every happened before; let me know?
How many presidents’ religions have been questioned over and over and over again? The man can only say what his religion is and leave it as that. What has to be done to prove otherwise?
There are numerous others examples to name from the “used to be on autopilot debt ceiling” since I can remember until President Obama (It had to start somewhere, right?) then on to “May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow”; publicly prayed by a government official. Really?!
Here’s what the bottom line comeback of the day is, “He’s the President of the United States; get over it!" That says a lot from where we’ve come, where we are, and where we are heading.
Still, our President has stayed on the high road through it all. I great deal more than what I'd be able to maintain.
Maybe I wasn’t paying attention to the attacks on Bush, but I can’t recall such attacks by his peers to include family members. If I’m wrong, please shed some light on what I may have overlooked? What did I miss?
I'm in Miami this week. I had pretty much forgot about the election all day until now. Just got back to my room and turned on the TV. I have already seen quite a few Newt bashing ads from Mitt. My favorite was "Newt is no Reagan".
The girls in this town are simply stunning. I stopped at a cigar lounge just before my hotel. The person who helped me may be the most beautiful girl in the world! I think she owns the joint. She gave me a tour and threw in some free cigars. I'm gonna hang out there every night sipping wine and smoking cigars. Sides Mrs. Spatic of course.
“Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."
Did you say JOINT? bahahahaahahahahahahahahha.........My kinda cigar shop......
First Hawaii, now Miami...........Rub it in, dude, rub it in.........
Well, to demonstrate your appreciation for our fine Southern landscape, any way I can talk you into doing a little campaigning for Newt while you're there? He is from Georgia, after all........
