[StBernard] The Year of Mediocrity

It was inappropriate and offensive for you to call president Bush a
"retard". That's an offensive term. That sort of language does not advance
your agenda or your political views. He is still our president and deserves
our respect, just as president elect Obama does now. Mistakes were made,
that's for sure and I'm sure president elect Obama will make his share also.
We should be able to disagree while still being civil. That kind of
language only makes you look ignorant on what were very complicated problems
president Bush had to deal with. I respect Obama and the fact that he is
now our president. I will be loyal to him because he is our president and I
am loyal to my country. I probably will not agree with all he does but I
will not resort to all the inappropriate names I could call him. I feel
that by not treating our president with respect, be it Bush or Obama, we are
disrespecting our country and all of our fellow citizens that voted for one
or the other. We should all try to get our various points across while
still remaining civil. That goes for all our conservative republican
friends on this site. If you are still trying to figure out how he got
elected, it is because the majority of our fellow citizens agree with him
and voted for him.
