This probably deserves its own post, but I think of the modern era, no president has been as disrespected as President Obama in terms of how he is treated by other politicians. I know presidents of both parties have taken a lot of heat from the general public, but I think for the most part, presidents have been respected by other politicians because they have respect for the actual office. Now before you get all riled up, can you think of another president been as disrespected by other elected officials like our current president? Not only while speaking at a joint session of Congress he was interrupted by a congressman yelling at him for being a liar, have a finger pointed at his face on a tarmac by a Governor, but he’s also had to defend his citizenship by numerous elected officials. Yeah, politicians have thick skin and if they can’t take the heat they have to get out of the kitchen, but I was so moved by Bob Schieffer’s words that I thought I’d start Bag of Randomness off with what he had to say, which you can find at the 40-second mark.
I will give Obama credit, he’s never complained about any of the examples I stated above with the possible exception of his citizenship being taken in to question because of how it was distracting from more important issues.
