Analysis: Obama Denied Respect the Office Demands
Wash Informer ^ | 10/9/10 | Mike Cottman

Posted on 10/09/2010 11:58:22 AM PDT by pissant

President Barack Obama gets no respect. Even as Republicans vow to repeal Obama’s sweeping health care law leading up to the crucial mid-term elections in November, one Republican candidate, Paul LePage, says if he’s elected governor of Maine, he plans to tell Obama “Go to hell.”

LePage, who is backed by the conservative tea party movement, spoke at a Republican forum last week while stumping for votes.

“And as your governor,” LePage told the crowd, you're gonna be seeing a lot of me on the front page saying ‘Gov. LePage tells Obama to go to hell.”

Why was that kind of profanity necessary? Who knows? It’s tough talk from LePage, a Republican hothead who not only disrespects Obama with his hateful comments, but he also disrespects the Office of the President.

Because Obama is America’s first black president, there is a question about whether LePage lashed out about Obama, in part, because he’s black. Would LePage have told a white president, who was a Democrat, to “go to hell?”

What’s clear is this: There will always be ideological differences between Democrats and Republicans but the tea party’s criticism of Obama’s policies usually turn ugly.

"If this is his attitude towards the president of the United States, I can't imagine what he would say when a local legislator or constituent disagrees with him," Arden Manning, who heads the Democrats' Victory 2010 campaign, said in a statement.

LePage, like many other Republicans, is critical of Obama’s economic recovery efforts and reminds the administration that the nation’s unemployment rate is stuck at 9.5 percent.

On Monday, Obama tried to counter the GOP’s assault and announced an initiative called Skills for America’s Future, a new, industry-led plan to substantially improve industry partnerships with community colleges and build a nationwide network to create jobs.

As old Teddy Roosevelt said...

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

WAH WAH WAH! Funny how when it is their guy on the receiving end of the insults it is supposedly disrespectful. These people are just getting what they had coming after doing the same thing to W for 8 years.

Don’t you think that a black oriented publication might have a biased opinion on the matter?

I respect the office more than the current office holder respects it. As for the current occupant? If he were and honorable man, he’d have my respect.

Obama cannot insult the voters, insult the office, and be a general embarrassment and then insist we respect the office.

I respect the office too much to have a jackanape like Obama infesting it.

I wonder if they chimed in to criticize the NAACP for running the ads accusing Bush of being responsible for Donald Byrd’s murder.

Well, why don’t you just cry about it to Bushitler?/sarcasm

After the way the Democrats treated that man (and, frankly, anyone who had an R after their names) for eight years, they have no right to complain about anything anyone says about Barry “Rodney Dangerfield” Obama.

Totally agree. You get what you give. The Office is way to big for this guy, it is getting very embarrassing to watch.

You're thinking of James Byrd, not the jazz musician :-)
