No respect for the office??? This is a club that has been used to beat me over the head on another forum.
In a discussion about the President of the United States, I stated that I have absolutely NO respect
for (King George, GW, Georgie Porgie, that Dunce in the Whitehouse, Bush Baby, Bush Jr, etc, etc, etc).
I made a statement that "Bush has done so many things that harm the US that my respect for the office itself has been damaged. I will begin to respect the Office of the President again when someone worthy of being President of the United States is elected and NOT UNTIL THEN".
You would think that I had just committed treason ... the Bushites went after me in full cry ... no thought of debating Bush's job since he assumed the office ... no discussion about the fact that (unlike predecessors) he hasn't seemed to grow with the office ... no debate about his childish 'my way or else' attitude (childish tantrum) ... JUST INVECTIVES AND ACCUSATIONS
There used to be a time that the Office of the President was held in respect even when the President of the United States had fallen out of favor. My question is as follows: HAS BUSH BECOME SO IDENTIFIED WITH THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT THAT THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AND THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF??? MOST FOREIGN LEADERS AND CIVILIANS DON'T MAKE THAT DISTINCTION ANYMORE AS FAR AS I CAN TELL. THE OFFICE IS THE PRESIDENT AND THE PRESIDENT IS THE OFFICE. WHAT DO YOU THINK AND WHY?
