Listen, as much of a strong Democrat as I am , I never disrespected Pres. Bush. Yeah I admit to making jokes about him based on blunders that were shown in the media and disagreed with his politics. But I never disrespected the Presidency. I just don't understand all of the extreme disresept towards Obama. It is the PARENT that teaches the child to hate. I have 2nd & 3rd graders that say they hate Obama, and when I question them they said "Because my parents do". Um, that's not teaching your child to form their own opinion, and 7 year olds may not have a big enough picture to formulate a political opinion. It is a classic example of a parent pushing their own poltical agenda onto their child. Instead, a 7 year old should be taught that the President is someone to be respected even if Mommy & Daddy don't agree with him. So a question to Obama-haters: Are you really satisfied teaching your child to be hateful? Is there a reason not to teach your child about supporting & respecting the Office of the President?
