Please show respect in your feeble attempt at sarcasm. That is PRESIDENT Obama, as in elected by the American people.

I have respect for the office of “The President of the United States of America,” but the office holder must earn the respect of the people. Speaking in a politically correct manor that includes half-truths, giving distorted and misleading facts and figures is not the type of conduct that shows respect. But inside the beltway this is a behavior that is seen as expectable by the vast majority of our political leadership.

The sad thing is that people of both parties take the disrespect shown to us in stride. What ever happened to telling the truth? What has happened that we no longer have leaders that say things like, “the buck stops here” and mean it?

Looking inside the beltway is simply a reflection or mirrored image of what we have become as a society!!! REALLY SAD isn’t it!!!

Respect? For that person in office that has ripped our constitution to shreds, is that the one you are referring to reasonrules? I can't believe he still has backers! I thought Bush was bad, but this guy must think it was a contest for the worst president ever!

I will respect MR Obama when he exhibits a shred of respect for our Constitution, the law (his DOJ chooses not to enforce laws) and freedom. Socialism and enslavement do NOT warrant respect.

I'd like to see a leader stand up and take responsibility, instead of continually saying "I didn't know about it."

Didn't know about healthcare.gov problems, didn't know what the IRS was doing, didn't know what was happening in Benghazi, didn't know about about NSA spying on other leaders, etc... etc...

Isn't it our leader's job to know what is going on?

Now a crappy leader will always lay blame elsewhere, you all probably have seen bosses like this and they have no respect of their staffs.

"The president didn't know today was Halloween"

That would be Bush's fault.

hmm.... I travel to Albany occasionally so I guess that make me an expert on New York State politics. The reader might want to check out some history before making declarations that can't be backed with facts. Lots of examples, I'll give one - Germany which was a Republic then a dictatorship and then returned to a Republic.

...and the United States was once a Constitutional Republic, but is now WELL on its way to becoming a dictatorship.
