Why doesn't OUR President get respect?

I just finished reading yet another teabagger thread about a bullet with his name on it....for Gawd's sake..PATRIOTS
REAL PATRIOTS honor the office not the man. He deserves the very same respect that all that came before deserved.
I think we played pretty nice during W's reign, I know I did not like the man, and hated his DarthVader sidekick, but bullets never, ever entered my mind.

Oh yeah, we can make all make the excuses in the world for those nuts...racist, antiDEM or any other adjective that we can think of, but honestly they hate America whilst throwing around how patriotic THEY are. AZZHOLES that incite.
THEY are, or possibly will be domestic terrorists.

Shove their slogan right back at them.."WE are Americans, you are either with us or against us"
I guess we can give him the same "respect" they gave Bush- he (Obama) doesn't deserve respect. He's a "dumb chimp", "intellectually incurious", and dozen or two worse words and labels. "You don't give people who don't deserve respect, respect". etc...etc.....etc....

1. He's black. That overrides patriotism. They seem to think it's UNpatriotic that

we don't have a White guy in the White house.

2. When was the last time you saw a positive headline about him?

all of the corporate media are doing their best to undermine what their buddies in the country club locker room want

5. despite his statement at the G20 that continuing the bush tax cuts for the wealthy is not feasible

the media continued to drone on about how he will have to extend them, etc....

I can't watch cable news anymore. I can barely read DU Kos or other sites. I stick to print media, but stay off of the opinion pages.
Some of them have a real problem that the media and EVERYONE does not hero worship Obama.

Because he doesn't deserve any! He holds the office of President, but he is anything but
Presidential. He probably doesn't even know what the word," Statesman", means.

Maybe while blaming Bush for the dept, he's quadrupled it.

Maybe it's because the number of government workers making over $150K has doubled in two years while the country's private sector continues to struggle.

Maybe it's because he's had pathetic results every time he's ventured out to "improve" our international standing.

Maybe it's becoming obvious that he doesn't have a fucking clue how to do anything other than campaign.

That's just for starters.

" I think we played pretty nice during W's reign " :confused::confused::confused:

Either pkz is in denial, out right lying, delusional, lost all long term memory, or has never once looked into DU's archives.

What a major hypocrit you are pkz. You sh*t all over people , then get upset when they won't play nice!


God, no wonder Moonbats lost last week :rolleyes

Of course no link is provided but I digress. I wonder how this person felt when Randi Rhodes said this about President Bush:

"Like Fredo, somebody ought to take him out fishing and phuw. "

Rhodes then imitated the sound of a gunshot. http://archive.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2004/5/12/153908.shtml

I guess Ms. Rhodes is respecting the office of the President here, right? Or how about these:

Wow. This person owes me a keyboard. I don't think I need to explain. I'm sure we could find at least 100 threads on the DU not playing nice.

WHAT THE ____? What happened? O Blah Blah is Black? Is that what the problem is?

All this time I thought it was that he was a Marxist usurper that shoves useless, expensive, and socialist pieces of crap legislation down our throats. Who would have guessed that the same electorate that voted for a BLACK :eek: guy hates him now because he's Black.:rolleyes:

As for "respect;" he doesn't get respect because he hasn't earned it and he doesn't demonstrate it. He demands what he is neither worthy of receiving, and fails to give to others. In short, he is a worthless piece of crap!
