I think a lot of people are making a far bigger deal out of this than it warrants. Was it disrespectful to throw a shoe at our President? Absolutely. It would be to do so to any world leader. However, it was just a shoe. The most that is going to be made out of this is that it is going to get a few hundred thousand hits on Youtube and it will probably get a brief mention on Best Week Ever. Stuff like this is the lifeblood of internet video like Youtube. Who cares? The absurdity of it only underlines the fact that we should all be able to laugh about it and move on rather than take it seriously in any way.
