You Don’t Have To LIKE Obama – But As Your President, You Will RESPECT Him

When Barack is speaking - shut your ass up

I am slowly starting to lose my patience with the bigots, racists and contemptuous douchebags who show Barack Obama nothing but disrespect. And while I have no qualms with anyone who thinks he’s a terrible president, a socialist or a Kenyan muslim [in a free country, you are entitled to your own ridiculous, inane and completely WRONG opinions] I do take GREAT exception to the outwardly IGNORANT and unprecedented bullish*t-actions that he’s had to face in office RIGHT to his face. No other president in America’s history has been so flagrantly sh*t-on, no matter how many anti-intellectual and bullish*t statements came flying out of his mouth, which leads me to one question: At what point are we going to start indicting people for treason?

I remember seeing THIS bullish*t in 2009:

And what shocked me about it, is that a Republican rep. [Joe Wilson] actually HECKLED the president during his speech like he was at the f*^king Comedy Store trying to perfect his new material. NO president has EVER had to endure an act of UTTER disrespect in the Capitol like that EVER before.

Fast forward a couple of years, and you have THIS:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer pointing her frowsy finger in Barack’s face like a 3rd grade teacher scolding her student for farting in class. With no due respect, Jan is nothing more than a lying, saggy-faced old b*tch, full of hyperbolic tales of imaginary beheadings. YET, she feels there is nothing wrong with talking down and forcefully at Barack in the same manner she demeans her dog for sh*tting on the rug.

As hard as it was to stomach seeing the Leader of the Free World be disrespected in that manner, and knowing that any response he makes will be attributed to his RACIAL-inclinations [the “Angry Black man”] as opposed to just a simple, sensible reaction [reminding EVERYONE he IS the president and has EARNED respect], I was able to take a deep breath and let it slide..

Until seeing THIS on Friday:

While Barack was unveiling his new immigration policy, some fat DOUCHEBAG named Neil Munro [from a faux-newspaper called ‘The Daily Caller’ created by America’s leading anti-intellectual, Tucker Carlson] decided he would DISS Obama in a move that shocked all of the REAL seasoned reporters there for it’s lack of total class and decorum.

The fat f*^k who couldn't keep his ignorant mouth shut

Now let me restate that I don’t CARE whether or not you LIKE the President, but understand he IS still the President and therefore DESERVES your RESPECT. I once heard some douchebag say that Barack hasn’t done anything to EARN peoples respect and that’s why he gets treated this way, but that IDIOT clearly doesn’t understand how things work – the President EARNS your respect by BECOMING President – but if you want to take it there, please explain to me why George Dubya never got disrespected like this on American soil?

What did he do, you ask?

Well:
- He began his presidency with the most recorded vacation days of any sitting President before him which resulted in him missing the report warning of 9/11
– He was president during one of the most flagrant and catastrophic terrorist attacks in American history
– He sat in a classroom smiling at kids for 11 minutes after being told the country is under attack
– He spent the U.S. surplus and effectively bankrupted the U.S. Treasury
– He invaded and occupied two countries at a continuing cost of over one billion dollars per week
– He shattered the record for the largest annual deficit in U.S. history
– He set the all-time record for the biggest drop in the history of the U.S. stock market. In his first year in office, over 2 million Americans lost their jobs
– He presided over the biggest energy crisis in U.S. history and refused to intervene when corruption involving the oil industry was revealed
– He broke more international treaties than any President in U.S history
– He was the first President in U.S. history to order an unprovoked, pre-emptive attack and the military occupation of a sovereign nation. He did so against the will of the United Nations, the majority of U.S. Citizens and the world community
– He cut health care benefits for war veterans and support a cut in duty benefits for active duty troops and their families in wartime
– He failed to bring Osama to justice and attacked the wrong nation
– He presided over the complete mismanagement of Katrina
– He presided over the Bush Tax Cuts

And through all that BULLSH*T, never was ONE of his speeches interrupted disgracefully on American soil. Not ONE time was he screamed at in anger in congress, nor was he ever ridiculed and heckled by reporters [no matter HOW ridiculous he was acting].

I wonder why that is?

Oh yeah – it’s because he’s NOT Black.

    Ladies & Gentlemen, Do You Think Obama Is being Unfairly And Unprecedentedly Disrespected Or Does He Deserve A Lot Of The Backlash He Receives?

      He is absolutely being treated unfairly. Look at the absolute disaster George Bush made of the country not to mention the image of the US to the rest of the world. I think it is ridiculous that that reporter even had the balls to talk back after President Obama told him politely to shut the F up. His response should have been I'm so sorry Mr President and done…

        How has Bush made a big disaster of the country when Obama has the worst unemployment rate any president ever had and sent us into a recession???

          We were already there. This is one of the main reasons why Obama won. The economy tanked under Bush. You can't blame this on Obama. You can blame this on the congress before him though.

          I'm gonna break it down for you…

          1) No WMDs were ever found
          2) Hurricane Katrina… Nothing more needs to be said other than that was an epic fail on his part.
          3) Ignoring Pre-9/11 Terror Memo. Weeks before 9/11 he was handed a memo "Bin Laden Determined To Strike in US". This was a credible threat that he was too busy on vacation to even read.
          4) Entering Iraq without a UN mandate. Basically saying F you to the rest of the world.
          5) Insisting there was a link between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda that was never found by the way.
          6) Failing to capture Osama bin Laden
          7) Tax cuts for the wealthy just like his idiot father did…
          and last but not least he completely underestimated the cost of this war he started, that is what got the ball rolling on this "recession" you are referring to.

            I'm not saying he's perfect but look at all the stuff Obama has done too:

            1) Sent more troops into war
            2) Advocated socialism
            3) The Dow Jones collapse
            4) More unemployment
            5) Highest national debt ever
            6) Opening up the border to illegal aliens

            He's not doing so hot himself!

            Not saying he's perfect?? LMAO

            Many of the things you have listed here are issues pouring over from the Bush administration. Sending more troops to a war that Bush started?? Is that really #1 on the list??

            To clarify # 5, President Obama was elected in November 2008 and did not take office until January of 2009. The start of the national debt crisis started in 2007 while who was in office???

            The truth is after the Bush regime no president will be that good. Put it like this. If you met a guy that was so messed up from previous relationships and you tried with him and then he flipped out, would you want people to say YOU were the cause because you weren't good enough?

    Every President deserves to be critiqued. Every. Single. One. It's when the critiques turn to attacks and the ones critiquing are actually anti-intellectuals that there is a problem. I personally blame the media. I miss the days when the news only came on during the evenings. Now, the news is competing for dollars and so they will air any and everything. Forget about reporting the facts. We need for it to be sensational so that it can sale. Let's allow everyone a voice regardless if they are educated and an expert in their field since everyone has the right to be heard. Well this is what happens when everyone practices that right and the amount of hits on a site dictates your popularity instead of content. So now we have political leaders that need to be popular to get elected and people who will only watch the "news" instead of reading about it to form an opinion. Where political pundits scream at each other and since the public sees this and thinks it's ok, emulates what they see. Where explaining facts will get you labeled a socialist and being a conservative means that you are a closed minded racist.
    Obama is getting the brunt of it bc the republican party realizes that people care about emotions and not actual knowledge. The public wants a sensualized story. And many people are just simply afraid to admit that the world they once knew is now changing and it scares them. Heck, it scares me. So due to fear, anger, and losing control, some are attacking just to attack without even thinking. Until the dems find a way to appeal to people's minds AND emotions, democrats who become presidents will ALWAYS be attacked in a much crueler manner. Until the media actually gets their crap together and the public starts raising the bar on what they expect, we will see more politicians who care less about policy and more about image.
    So no, it isn't fair that this is happening to Obama but this is what he signed up for (the love and hate, the critics and the attacks) and these are the times we live in.

      While I agree that every President is subject to criticism that isn't what this is. To disagree with his policies and voice them in the senate or during debates that is one thing. But to blatantly disrespect the man is another… People tend to forget that the President is the commander and chief of the entire country and whether he wasn't your pic for the job its his damn job so show him the respect he deserves. Voice complaints and debate his policies intelligently for goodness sake don't interrupt him in the middle of a speech. That sh*t is completely uncalled for and not what he signed up for.

      • mena

        06/19/2012 at 12:42 PM

        It is EXACTLY what he signed up for. He signed up for the good and the bad. This is politics. You can't just have the good and get upset over the bad. He knew good and well that if he won, he would be criticized harshly since he is the president of the free world and he is the first black president. The first to come out of any norm is always criticized harshly since they will set the bar for the rest to follow.

        This man went to Harvard and has balls of steel. He didn't become a politician b/c he was afraid of being attacked. He KNEW EXACTLY what was up and is handling it like a champ.

        • NurseJilly

          06/19/2012 at 1:35 PM

          I agree that he signed up to be judged and criticized and he handles himself remarkably in the face of such obvious discrimination. What I can't get with is some douche bag press reporter (who knows damn well what he was doing by the way) the right to interrupt the President during an address. Or a little snotty governor who thinks she has the right to point her little judgemental finger in the Presidents face. Some things are just unacceptable.

            06/19/2012 at 2:16 PM

            Oh. Don't get me wrong. He is being blatantly disrespected BUT, b/c of the way the media and people are today, it is to be expected. It's partially racial and partially people just don't have the same respect for the president as they used to. When you see him on the news everyday, on every channel, at every second, the aura of the presidency wanes and so does the level of respect. This is where less is more. It isn't his fault. This is the age of social media.

            06/19/2012 at 10:11 PM

            how can you say this is the age of social media when the attacks aren't on twitter. The attacks aren't during the Tonight show or on Letterman. The attacks are occurring in person on white house property. In congress. In the senate. Social media has nothing to do with it. Also how can you blame the president for being more accessible to the american people that voted for him? That's backwards.

          • mena

            06/19/2012 at 10:25 PM

            You've missed my point. He hasn't made himself more accessible, the media has. I doubt this is his choice but when the news is on 24/7 and every show is analyzing your every move it just sucks and brings down your aura as the president.

            As for social media, you do realize that EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN CONGRESS has a twitter handle and Facebook page? That they use this for political gains? I mean, Obama has raised a ton of money through social media and so have other politicians. Social media is one huge facet in the hatred that is taking place in politics right now. To negate its impact one must be living under a rock.

            06/20/2012 at 12:26 AM

            I've never witnessed a president tha wasn't covered on the news whenever the pres has something to say. They've all been heavily covered. And yes Obama has made himself more accessible than recent pres by appearing daytime talk shows (Oprah, the view) the daily show etc. that is unprecedented and all his team's choice.

            Second you missed my point he's not being attacked on the forums where he's made an effort to be accessible, he's being attacked literally in his backyard , in traditional settings.

            Lastly, the state of media hasnt changed much since bush (except for twitter which again hes not disrespected on). If you say people don't have the same respect for presidents as they used to that only changed once Obama took office and fox news and ppl like beck oreily hannity took center stage.

          Disagree.

          Whether You're A Principal In A School, A Sergeant In The Army Or The Manager Of Your Office, There's A Base Level Of Respect That Your Title EARNS You. If Someone Crosses The Line Of Disagreement With You And Carries It Over Into Disrespect That Is NOT Part Of The Job, That's Just Being A DOUCHE.

          He Did NOT Expect THIS Level of Disrespect, Because This Disrespect Is Literally Unprecedented.

          • mena

            06/19/2012 at 2:32 PM

            Disagree with your point.

            The disrespect for the office was happening long before he came into office. Y'all must have forgotten about the primary or even the actual election. They were starting to rack him over the coals then. BEFORE he got into office.

            He expected this. This is the time that we live in now. Obama is an extremely smart man and his advisers are as well. If this was happening to him before he got into office, he knew it would happen to him while he was in office. The American people's patience was running thin and he knew he would be the face of anything wrong that happened. When you are that face, expect a heavy backlash no matter what you do.

            Disrespect is a part of the job of anyone in charge. To think that just because you earn a title, no one is going to cross the line is not using sense. That's called a dictatorship. We live in a democracy where everyone has the right to be heard and be a complete jerk. Free speech is for all. Disrespectful douches included. Didn't you say this yourself last week?

            To every action, there is always an equal and opposite reaction.
            Again, disrespect is to be expected. Is it fair? No. Is it happening? Yes. Is he handling it extremely well? Absolutely.

            The True Test Of This Will Be If Mitt Romney Wins…If Romney NEVER Has ANY Of His Speeches Interrupted And NEVER Gets Shouted At And Heckled By Members Of Congress, Then I Think It WIll Prove How Ridiculous The Circumstances Barack Is Up Against.

            He won't. Democrats don't behave that way. As I stated up thread:

            "Until the dems find a way to appeal to people's minds AND emotions, democrats who become presidents will ALWAYS be attacked in a much crueler manner."

            The argument wasn't that Obama is receiving less h3ll. The argument was with power comes respect and disrespect and both should be expected. Hope for the best but expect for the worst.

    President Obama is undoubtedly being unfairly disrespected by members of the congress, media, and American public. And yes, this is due entirely to his race. Because he is a black man, he is being held to an impossible standard; one which is unfairly high. rather than recognizing his accomplishments, or at the very least, his attempts at repairing the economy, he is being shit on for not being a messiah and turning the cess pool bush left behind into wine.

      The difference is Debbie, that movie was made by an independent film maker. I could see your point if it were made by opposing political rivals but it wasn't. The movie got standing ovations because people believe that Bush was a shady ass President.

          Do I think the movie was disrespectful, yes I do. Did he deserve it? HELL YES!! That movie was released in 2004 well after Bush already led is country to war and royally F'd everything up. With that aside, the disrespect that President Obama has endured doesn't compare to that. The whole "birther" nonsense, ignorant ass reporters interrupting him during an address, Arizona governor, Jan Brewer getting up in his face. None of these things are criticizing him, they are blatant disrespect that no other President has had to endure.

            thank-you Jilly…THAT was my point. Yes, Bush was insulted for his actions during presidency but the difference is it was warranted. he didn't have to endure a fraction of what Barack did in his first term.

    I believe if they conducted a random nationwide poll asking participants if these instances would be considered disrespectful, not mentioning Pres. Obama, with an objective yes or no….then the numbers would mostly favor being disrespectful.

    As others have stated, Pres. Obama has faced a greater amount of disrespect than any other commander-in-chief..was Bush disrespected? Oh yes! But not like our current president. This sends a terrible message to the world and especially our young people. There's a time and place for civil discourse but one must never cross that line.
