The difference is: these newlyweds were not looking for attention. They, IMO, more accurately represent the Midwest than those people from your example who are looking for attention.

Please dont lump all of flyover country in with the AW dumbfarks.

I'd post here about how there are tens of millions of Democratic voters in the flyover states, and that many of the Republicans who live here like and respect President Obama even though they disagree with him, but I don't live on the coasts so my opinion doesn't matter anyway.

That's pretty standard for all republicans. It's either 'Obama' or 'Mister Obama' because they are trying to distance him from the office he holds.

This is the district that Steve King represents. So these could be the only two sane people in all of Sioux City for all we know.

That's even cooler than my drunk clamper cousins. Not as well armed, but better haircuts.

Yes, if I was getting married in 2004 and Bush stole some of my wedding parking spots for their rally, and they posted some Secret Service agents at my wedding...I'd forgive Bush for doing that, just because of the Secret Service agents.

Here in MO, the comments about the president get pretty douchey...So not everyone is nice here in flyover country.

I don't know about everyone but I'm really working on that goal :)

Nope. Sorry, that's not how it works.

People have to earn your respect. I don't care who they are. Once earned, they must then continue to remain worthy of it.

You honor the office, not the man.

Here on the internet, when I'm making silly comments, I might call a Dubya a Dubya. But in public, when was speaking in front of people, or speaking to him, it was always President Bush.

Heh heh. You said bush.

They'll probably see it here first.

Nope, I don't show someone respect just because of the job they have. They still have to earn it.

That being said, I understand what's involved for a Presidential visit, having been a part of one. I also understand that this stuff is not planned out more than a few weeks in advance, often far less, so I could understand something like this popping up. It sounds like they tried to have as little impact on other events at the College as possible, which is something that I WOULD respect.

Presidential visits can be a royal biatch for traffic. When Bush would come to Phoenix, it would close freeways that he didn't even use, and turn my wife's 15-20 minute commute into 45 minutes to an hour, if the worst that happened is that they lost some parking spaces, I'd say that the White House did their best to not inconvenience others, which is the most that we can ask for.

And kudos to this couple for at least teaching their kids to be civil, although it's obvious form their 'no comment' response that they aren't Obama supporters. That IS classy, and nice to hear for a change.

The Secret Service knows how to party. I picture Jesus as a Secret Service Agent for that reason.

Yes, and it is for this reason that I deliberately refer to him as nothing but President Obama when I'm debating with conservatives. No matter how many times I say his name, I never ever say just "Obama." It's President Obama each and every time.

Respect may be earned, but courteous politeness is offered until it is shown that they do not deserve to be treated politely.

I.E. I don't know a stranger, but I will still shake their hand.

While I had no respect for Bush, but if he knocked on my door and asked for a glass of water, I would not say "Bugger off, CHIMPY MCFLIGHTSUIT".
 
2012-09-02 01:51:37 AM
Besides calling him Obama and Mister Obama, they also denigrate him by using "this" and "that" as an adjective before his name. "I tell ya, this president just doesn't get it" or "that Obama just doesn't get it." It's one of Sean Hannity's favorite verbal tricks.

I'd like to see how you behaved at work when you first started your job. Like most people, you probably minded your P's and Q's and didn't flip off your boss or call the VP of Marketing a dooshbag to his face. So either you're talking shiat or you don't think before you type.

It's called respecting the Office, pisstank. You'd really revolutionise boot camp. "F*ck you, Seargeant. Earn my respect! It's worth nothing and I will do my best to sow discontent no matter what you do, but I want you on your knees!"
