What Happen To The Respect for The Office of The President????

   The other day I was talking with one of my clients while I was doing her nails and discussing with her about how the media and the talking heads out there in T.V Land don't have the respect for the office of the Presidency that they use to. I don't know about you but do you remember the last President that was referred to as Mr President or President whoever at the time.
   When I was young nobody referred to the President by his last name only or by his first name only and today and in resent years that is all I hear and very little Mr President or President whoever it is.
How are we suppose to tell the younger generations to respect the office if we the adults or the media don't?
   Do you see where I am going with this? I do have to admit that when I referred to the Last President it was never in a good light when I talked about him, however he was the President of these United States and I do expect the media and talking heads to referred to the office with the respect it deserves.
  We may not like who is in the office, however I do strongly believe we should respect it no matter who is sitting in the Oval office whether it is Kennedy ,Clinton,Regean or a Bush. They all deserve the word President in front of their.
   We may not agree with their politics yet they still deserve respect.


  1. A well-executed Blog Template, if ever I saw one!

  2. Well hey there bat signal!!!! Deb, you made a hellva start out! You point is well taken and the idea of respect deserves much more consideration. Just don't expect it over at cluster Fox, Faux News , get the point, hell, YOU turned me onto Maddow! Keep blogging sweetie!

  3. I have to agree with Deb and Gwen on this one. There does not seem to be the respect for the presidency there once was. I recall quite vividly the Nixon days and the press was nicer to him than they are to President Obama.

    Congratulations on your new blog by the way. Vigil is right. A well executed template.

    Finally, you don't need the word thingy these days, unless you just want to torture your commenters:-) Blogger seems to have figured out how to stop 95% of the spammers and scammers.

  4. I agree about the respect issue. I am very guilty of disrespect to George W. that while I meant it as satire did cross the line at times.

    I do fear a cascading effect were every new administration is subjected to an increasing level of political rhetoric that does less to illustrate that administration's real shortcomings but to undercut and delegitimize it.

    Such poison is simply not good for the nation.

  5. Thank you to all for the very nice comments.
    Keep on keeping on.
