    Has President Obama received more disrespect and hate than revious presidents?

    It seems to me that President Obama and his administration has received more disrespect and fear mongering than many previous presidencies. With the whole "birther" controversy, the allegation that Obama is a Muslim, Governor Brewer putting her hand in the President's face, the idea that Obama was brainwashed with Communist ideas by a mentor while he was young, the idea that Obama hates America, etc etc etc.

    What are your thoughts?

    Hopefully 'yes' to the former and 'no' to the latter.

    Yes - he sucked but does not deserve hate thrown his way for it...just doing his job.

    And I said 'hopefully'.

    I do not know what he actually received.

    Not sure one can measure that.

    Yes and No, I would say George Bush had alot of disrespect and scorn. However, perhaps not to the level with President Obama. I think it's underlined by the Right being stronger in their rhetoric than the left and also the hyperlization of the media, especially fringe media outlets.

    when people start making mass-audience movies accusing Obama of being complicit in the mass-murder of thousands of innocent Americans, and going to see hate-porn of him getting shot, let me know.

    Bush was not disrespected when he took office. In my opinion Obama was disrespected from the first day of term.

    Well then surely you would agree that line had been crossed?

    Also haven't you got it backwards. As the President of the United States of America, your Head of State, you want him to recieve disrespect? The Office?
