    It's just a script so I don't find it too disturbing. I also don't find it much of a stretch for her. I imagine her having no qualms whatsoever repeating those lines.

    Is it inappropriate to call the President's wife "Your excellency."?

    Excellency is an honorific style given to certain members of an organization or state.

    Usually, people addressed as excellency are heads of state, heads of government, governors, ambassadors, certain ecclesiastics, royalty, aristocracy, and military, and others holding equivalent rank (e.g., heads of international organizations, high commissioners in the Commonwealth of Nations).

    It is sometimes misinterpreted as a title of office in itself, but in fact is an honorific that precedes various titles (such as Mr. President, and so on), both in speech and in writing. In reference to such an official, it takes the form His/Her Excellency; in direct address, Your Excellency, or, less formally, simply Excellency.

    The abbreviation HE is often used instead of His Excellency; alternatively it may stand for His Eminence.

    That dopey clip is what everyone is getting so worked up over? Oy.

    I seem to recall GW once saying...I don't have a problem with a dictatorship, as long as I'm the dictator. Or something like that.

    I remember us laughing at the DUmmies when they went nuts over that statement. I can see them laughing at us now.
    Be Not Afraid.

    If this was the only thing that would be true, but this is just a continuation of their constant arrogance like the 4 million vacation they just finished.

    I'm sure then that you can produce the clip of him saying that?

    Or find in the archives here where DU laughed about it?

    Your ability to recall thigns accurately and claim to know how people reacted has a really piss poor track record around here.

    It is a pretty notorious clip.

    I thought it was just his sense of humor, though.

    He did but was clearly joking, GW is a humble honorable man, no one can say that about either of the Obamas and keep a straight face, favorite libtard trick, evoke Bush.

    Yeah well when you're dealing with Libtards...their BDS doesn't let them be rational.
