    Who gives a damn if it was disrespectful? Obama and just about every other politician in Washington do things daily which make the majority of people in this country's lives worse so the very last thing I'm going to lose any sleep over is whether or not one of these scumbag politicians has been disrespected. As far as I'm concerned every politician in Washington DC could drop dead tomorrow and the world would be a far better place for it.

    But even political humor, satire, etc like this does not belong in a 4th of July Parade, that is for sure. It belongs on an editorial page or a column written about the president.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You asked how you can respect the office while protesting the man. I gave you the answer, if you choose to ignore it that's up to you.

    I was brought up to respect the office. The actions of the people that did the float during the 4th of July parade are that of children.

    Funny thing was, President David Robert Outhouse (D-Ore.) was never portrayed that way, simply because it was disregarded as a weak pun on his name.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Let's not go there, they don't represent all Nebraskans.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Of course its racist. Any thing short of praise for our king is racist and should be prosecuted to the fullest. (yes, sarcasm)

    Strawman, we are not talking kidnapping. Just political satire.
