    I just learned from Ryan that Obama is a criminal that should be prosecuted by watching the Republican convention on CNN.
    I learn somethig new every day.

    I think conservatives are just eager to give at least as much disrespect to Obama as they perceive Bush to have received. It's obviously revenge, since no discussion on how much disrespect he's gotten is ever complete until grievances over Bush's treatment is brought up.

    What are your thoughts?
    There's no real way to measure it, but I don't think so. It always seems like the current President is receiving more criticism and disrespect than any previous one, but I think most of them get about the same amount of it, with the newer stuff just being fresher in our minds.

    Probably about the same,although since Bush has served two terms in office Bush has gotten more hate and disrespect than Obama.The die hard anti-Bush tards falsely accusing Bush of lying for war,stealing elections, accusing him of being a moron, draft dodger, masterminding 911 and other nonsense. The die hard anti-Obama tards are falsely accusing Obama of not being a natural born citizen, being a Muslim, being a Marxist, and criticizing him for using a teleprompter.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He came into office as a superstar. He then earned disrespect.
    Which outrageous ads did Obama run? Romney approved of the "pants on fire", 4 "Pinocchio" ad falsely claiming that Obama lifted the work requirement for welfare.

    I don't hate anybody and you've got to respect anyone that pulls off becoming president. I just have 4 questions and it's regarding that oathe they take when they are sworn in. Can a president be charged with felony perjury for breaking that oathe and how do we go about enforcing that? Who is responsible for making the arrest and who do we complain to if we feel there should be charges brought forth?

    No.

    Reagan was hated on almost as bad.

    Bush I about as bad.

    Billy Boy, about the same.

    Bush II even worse.

    I like how you didn't include under Obama's parachute the socialist remarks.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).
