I remember the days when the office of the presidency was respected, and it didn’t matter who was occupying that office – whether he/she was a Democrat of Republican – Americans generally awarded some level of respect to that person.
Those days are long gone.
Since Republicans realized that disrespecting the president was the patriotic thing to do, and since the Republican politicians realized that their patriotic followers were all for disrespecting the president, they have fell over themselves trying to out disrespect each other. The Republican politician capable of hauling the most filth to the president get the most love from the patriots in the Republican party.
Speaking on Morning Joe this morning, Chris Christie, currently running for the same office he is disrespecting, chalked up some love from the people in his party when he called Obama the “weakling in the White House.”
According to Christie, the President of the United States is a “weakling” because he has not spent the lives of Americans and the military in another war, this time, a war with Russia. Christie claimed that if he were president, the first thing he would do is implement a no-fly zone in Syria, and start a war with Russia if Putin disobeyed.
“And my first phone call would be to Vladimir,” Christie said. “And I’d say, ‘Listen, we’re enforcing this no-fly zone. And I mean we’re enforcing it against anyone, including you. So don’t try me. Don’t try me. Because I’ll do it.”
