cman: Lando Lincoln: I don't like it when people call the President "Mister." Mister Obama. Mister Bush. It's not a breach of protocol, but I think it should be.

That does actually tick me off as well

I may not like the guy, but damn, he earned that Mr President title

He didn't go to 8 years of President Medical school to be called "Mister".

Madison, and the House of Representatives asked George Washington to go with a simple title- Mr. President.  So it is not unreasonable to go with Mr before referring to a President by name.  He is not a ruler but an elected official.  Politicians have enough ego problems lets us not fuel them more.

You could have been stuck with:  "His High Mightiness, the President of the United States and Protector of their Liberties,"

the_dude_abides: i'll say it again: obama supporters are the biggest pussies in the world

We're not terrified that Obama is going to take our guns, or that's he's going to force Obamacare down our throats, or raise our taxes eleventy billion percent, or replace our current legal system with Sharia law. Your side is, though. Pussies. Afraid of shiat that doesn't even pose a threat.

He looks like the kind of guy that would always be sweaty.

cman: mediablitz: Interesting that Hot Air calls Obama "Precious" while not refuting Matthews claim.

They ask for "proof" (of course, it doesn't matter). Go back to the Republican debates. Try and find ONE TIME "President Obama" is used by Newt Gingrich (other than when blaming him for food stamps).

Here is a story covering how seldom the candidates used "President" during the debates.


They is (IMO) a concerted effort to "use your words" by right wing Republicans. It's not like there is a history of that...

We get it. You believe all Republicans are bigots. You don't have to go in every thread to say it

It might help if any Republicans ever did anything to dissuade anyone from that belief.

Calling the President by only his last name.  For example, "Eisenhower is one tough son of a biatch."

Not acceptable:
Referring to the president as "Mister ${current president's last name}."  For example, "Mister Reagan sold weapons to Iranian terrorists."
Referring to the president by his full name (including middle names) for no reason and not including his title.  For example, "Herbert Walker Bush decided to go on vacation today, that lazy cracker."
