And since it's Obama, the anti-Fox stations and commentators are having fits. Same fucking thing when Clinton was Pres, then Bush, then Obama. They all forget overnight that they didn't have a lick of respect for the last President of the "other" party."

The office is nothing more than a job ( a VERY important one, which gives all the more reason to hold the person in that office to a HIGHER stadard, not a lower one). It is defined by the people in that role, and as far as I'm concerned, they aren't the most respectable crew.

Also, if Thomas truly believes in what he believes, why would he want it to just quietly go away? You don't just go and smile and let it pass if you have convictions.

 

And Congress has been gridlocked for many years. All the more reason to stop playing this bullshit where we "respect the office" when the guy in it is for "my" party. I'm ready to hold these assholes in office responsible for "respecting the office," not the citizens they serve.
