    I expect that must be just like being stung for a lefty when trying to posit that President George W. Bush isn't all that bright. It was really great when during the election when the left tried to posit that kerry was the smarter of the two and President George W. Bush had the better overall college transcripts.
    If you're going to insist on proper etiquette, might as well refer to 'kerry' as Mr. Kerry, or Senator Kerry, just to be consistent and show you're sincere. But for the record, it is acceptable to refer to the president as "Mr. President, Mr. [Name], or Pres. [Name]". There is nothing disrespectful of "Mr. Bush." I haven't seen you correct the monikers of "osama", or "obongo", or maybe it's ok to disrespect a democratic president?

    I am not correcting anyone. I don't insist on proper etiquette from anyone. I hope they bring it to the table, but far be it for me to insist on anything. I am just, in this case, giving President George W. Bush some respect. In doing that, I happen to know that those on the left, like you, are incensed by it, which is good enough for me.

    Please show me where I've not referred to any POTUS in other than proper form. I show that much respect. When you refer to "they bring it to the table", is that also applicable to those who refer to Obama as "osama" or "obongo"? Proper etiquette applies to both parties, does it not?

    And while some of my views are liberal, many are conservative. I guess when you're up against the wall right, everything appears left.

    See previous post…

    Since it might not have been clear the first time, I will repost my position:

    I am not correcting anyone. I don't insist on proper etiquette from anyone. I hope they bring it to the table, but far be it for me to insist on anything.

    This might not include you, but it clearly is aimed at those on the left. While you may be left, you may have respect for President George W. Bush. I will watch for it in the future to see how you convey that respect.

    BTW, the posting of President George W. Bush in bold/large form text is just as I said:

    …in this case, giving President George W. Bush some respect.


    As far as the obongo/osama issue, I don’t really care how anyone else views him.

    My position on liberal politicians: I believe they are a danger to the nation and are not worthy, at least from my point of view, of the respect of capitalizing their last name or adding their title. I don’t name call, unless you consider “left wing radical extremist (or some variation)” name calling. If you do, I am guilty.

    Your mileage may vary…

    If you say so, I have no problem with where you think or believe I am on the political spectrum.

    You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but I'll still refer to him as George W. Bush, if that's ok with you.

    So Roger,

    I have met you at a couple of trials and you seem to be an OK guy while you sit and watch your pro run your dogs.

    Please tell me why you are so obsessed with making those with conservative views such as Rush, GW, and far more we will soon be discussing as your sworn enemies?

    Obviously you have accumulated some wealth over the years before you retired or your dogs would not be in the hands of a pro with depth in her resume
    Did make it in a free market system as the origionator of an innovative business, inherit from wealthy parents, a union employee, or as an attorney working for a lobby. I bet your answer will be none of the above, but I bet it will be interesting.

    Please fill in the details. You can do it by PM if you would like, this is not intended to be a flame thrower post

    Really would like to know, cause I am having trouble trying to figure out why a successful person like yourself would not be in favor of a free market system.

    Won't get to see you up in Jax next weeekend but good luck!


    Mike
