Wow, this is old!

I like the president.

I think people are often confused in our country. There are times I hear things or receive emails and I find myself ashamed for the people saying them or sending them. And this isn’t just limited to our President Obama, it extended to President Bush as well.

While there are (or were) often times when I disagreed with the policies of both men, I cannot find it in myself to spew the level of venom I find all too often present in the diatribes of their detractors. Maybe this is because I can believe it is possible to respectfully disagree...
I started this entry way, way back in 2010! Funny going back and reading it now.

I honestly don’t think our former President was a bad person but I do have a lot of problems with some of the things he did over the course of his eight years in office.

Still, it’s about respecting the office and not the man.

You won’t hear opponents to the current President acknowledge that. As a matter of fact, you’ll more than likely be subjected to a tirade and a litany of excuses for their own behavior in that regard.

The thing is, you treat the people you don’t like the way you want the people you like to be treated. No one says you have to agree with the President or his policies, you can even think he’s an imbecile but you should still respect the office.

And that went for Bush or Obama or even Trump today.

It’s sad to see people can be so wrapped up in getting their own way they won’t recognize that. I don’t care though. That’s your problem if you don’t have the level of maturity to act like an adult.

I have to admit, I am disappointed in people today.

I’m disappointed because I see the same behavior on the left that the people on the left were complaining about in some quarters of the right.

You all need to grow up.
