This reminds me of the woman who caused a stir for wearing flip flops when some womans team met Bush.  Big fucking deal if she wore flip flops, there is no official dress code for meeting the President either.  If I wanted to wear a depends diaper and have a big baby bottle, no one could stop me.

call me old fashion but I think there still is a certain amount of respect the President, regardless of political affiliation, deserves.  As Americans we ought to at least have respect for what the Office means.  so fuck him.
And in the United States, we also have the right to refuse to go to an event thrown by the President of the United States as well.

He isn't the first athlete to not go to an invitation and he sure as hell won't be the last. 

Just because the guy is the President, does not mean that people have to drop everything to go pay a visit to him either.

And that office has lost so much respect over the years, they are still about the level Nixon left it in when he resigned.
