  • Very well said, and that's the way it should be.

    I consider myself a democrat, although I have crossed over many times. I did not vote for George W. Bush, and many things he did really bothered me or even made me downright mad, and some things he did still does. But I never lost respect for the presidency. Like you, had I had the opportunity, I would have considered it an honor to have been able to see or meet a President.

    You have to respect the office of the President, even if you do not respect the current, or any former, occupant.

    I consider myself an independant voter, I choose the person who concides with my decisions the most on many issues without regard to their political party.

  • I have noticed that the tone and rhetoric seems to have become much less civil.

    One of my pet peeves is the tendency for some commentators to call the President Mr Obama or Mr Bush or even simply Obama or Bush. Even if you don't like the current/former resident of the White House you should respect the office. Call the President Mr Obama/Bush/whoever it is. Address him as Mr President. You may not have voted for that individual but you did vote to continue the office so respect it.

  • The title, "His Highness" will do nicely.
