RESPECT FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
~March 6, 2015~~
From a Follower.
“The office of the President, no matter who sits in the oval office, deserves our respect. If we so belittle the office through excessive partisanship we lessen the authority that the office deserves.
The President of the United States is our leader, our chief executive, the person who the rest of the world looks to as representing the United States.
How far do we take partisanship before it becomes demeaning to the office?
Is our political system so warped that what is best for the country becomes less important than partisan gain?
The phrase the loyal opposition, is important to consider, in that it implies that a person from the opposition party is still loyal to their oath and their nation while still opposing when it is appropriate what the opposition party or in this case the President of the United States has done.
Is anything fair game?
Is it okay to lie about them?
Is it okay to personally attack the wife of the President or his or her children, or even the dog?
What are the limitations?”

My thoughts on this topic are very personal to me and I understand that all are entitled to their own. I don’t mean for this post to be a political one.
I was always taught that we needed to “respect the office” of the President of the United States.
Without bringing politics and different ideologies into this, can anyone really say that this office has been respected since 2008 as is had always been before?
