I read an article where two guests in the White House were photographed flipping off the portrait of President Reagan. Has our nation devolved so far that this is an acceptable form of behavior? There seems to be no civility and decorum left among people. So sad as to the direction that our once great nation is headed.

To bad voters didn't know the real Obama when they voted for him.

Problem is everyone knows him now and the simpletons that view the world from the left still defend him. What's crazy is the left loons really think they are intellectually superior and conservatives are a bunch of knuckle-dragging Neanderthals! Their audacity and utter hypocrisy astound me! If obama wins reelection this country deserves what he will cast upon us.

You sure got that right. I hope he does not win and maybe ( I hope anyway ) that those we do elect can clean house. Trouble is............roaches are very difficult to eradicate.

I read the article as well, but in this case, to their credit, the WH rebuked the offensive behavior.

What impressed me was the dumb statement one of them made:

Hart, though, defended his gesture in the Philadelphia Magazine article. "Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands," he said. "The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded."



AIDS came to attention around 1980, if I'm not mistaken. Exactly what was RR supposed to do about it when medical experts didn't know what to do about it? Since then, it seems like we have spent as much on AIDS research, with tremendously successful results, as we have on various forms of cancer. And, if I'm not mistaken, GW was especially pro-active in funding for African nations to wage the war against AIDS.

Bad enough the guy is rude;, but he also seems to be a rude fool.

Seems no worse than the completed disrespect shown to Obama by the right.

Interrupting him in the middle of a speech at the White House? Shouting out "you lie" during an address to a joint session of congress? Calling him a muslim? Saying he isn't one of us, not an American?

Give me a break...

Romney better hurry up and sign up Rubio as VP he needs the latino vote. Obama has the Black, latino, G & L all sewn up. I can see Michelle Obama as she leaves the WH grabbing her lettuce and tomatoes from he garden to take with her. I for one don't want change I want security.

His actions sure make this debatable.

Buzz if you're going to quote me at least use a quote where I mention the lunatics from the left. The statement I originally made was a reference to society as a whole. Why don't you go crawl back under your rock! There's your break!

Obama supporters STILL think hes great, whats wrong with these people admit you were wrong and move on. If you think its bad now just wait and see what he will do the next 4 yrs. If you have a kid in college trying to find a job or if you are looking for work have fun competing against the 800,000 undocumented kids hes giving work permits do. Recent college grads that can't find work are now suing the schools. And whats his message, give a little more. I hope you all have some more to give.

I agree that this is completely disrespectful. Compared to everything else that has been done by the extremes of both sides I think this is pretty light.

Gee, Buzz, seems like you can put a positive spin on even a rude liberal. Are you sure you don't work for MSNBC? ;) (Note the similey.)
