Violation of the War Powers Act to begin with.  Not only Libya, but Somalia.  Instead of stopping the wars he inherited, he has entered into at least two more.  Later, we may find he was involved in the conspiracy for Fast and Furious too along with his minion Holder.

If Congress is claiming they don't know what's going on, then that is just stupid.

It's all about the individual who does the "name calling."  I taught my kids how I was taught...there is Aunt Denise, Uncle Verne, Mr. Severs, Mrs. Carson, Captain Davis, Sheriff King, Grandma Brooks, Senator Kennedy, and President Obama.  Maybe (probably) they all acted poorly at one point or another, but we will always be respectful of one another.

What did senator Obama say about Bush, He needs congress approval and he got it. What did he say about increasing the fedrial deficit, now the shoe is on his foot and turns out he has bigger feet to stick in his mouth. Common folks, just look what he said before he was elected and what he is doing. Beck really let loose on him on GBTV on 6-30. All should view it.

Obama is a dick....He respects no one, so he deserves the same.  If he wants respect as president maybe he needs to start acting like one.......maybe if he would spend as much time in the oval office as he does on the golf course our nation would not be in financial crisis.   The only numbers going down where he is concerned is his golf score.  He is a disgrace to our nation and is making us look like fools to other countries....or is that his plan?

Harlow, that is his plan.  His apology tour should have been a clue.  And hiring different people leaning toward Marxism and outright communists should have been another.  Performing a coup without the violence because the sheeple are still following and asleep.

Harlow, I don't make the decisions here -- that's up to Rick Lepard -- but I do not believe calling any elected official a "dick" is appropriate. Period.
 
He is President Obama until the end of his term. If you can't respect his actions, respect his office.
 
Everybody who pays any attention to my views knows I didn't vote for President Obama, and as a lifelong Republican, I have major problems with liberalism. Conservatives believe in constitutional government. We are not revolutionaries. We are not Saul Alinsky-style radicals. Our president -- and yes, he is **OUR** president -- was right about at least one thing: elections have consequences. We, as Americans, brought these consequences upon ourselves by majority vote in 2008. In a republic, we solve those problems by voting people out of office, not by disrespecting the office.

Harlow was giving the "man", not the office, the respect he has earned while in office.  which is absolutely NONE. He gives not one ounce of respect to the citizens nor this country itself.  As for any namecalling, nobody here has called any other person a name other than their screen name.  Obama is a public figure and subject to as much criticism as he deserves...which is almost unlimited in my book.

This is only your opinion, you may not be correct.  Saying it over and over doesn't make it so.  Calling me a sheeple dosen't help me see any news ideas or listen to any new thoughts.

Agree.  When a person makes a statement that President Obama has no respect for the citizens or the country, it sounds as if they are representing the thoughts of a group and since I'm not of that group, would think it would be better to state it as their "personal opinion," and leave the others out of it.

My problem is with calling President Obama a "dick."

Yes, he's a public official and Americans have the right to call him by that name. I've been called by that name -- and worse -- in public meetings by elected officials, some of them right here in this county. I've recently been reminded of something I had forgotten, that one elected official here not only called me by that name in a public meeting but then retracted his statement and said he's wrong, that's a part of a man, and I don't deserve that name. To call reporters bad names like that, and worse, is pretty much par for the course. I don't question the legal rights involved, and you will not hear me questioning the right of people to call me a "dick." (You may see me respond pretty strongly, but I don't question their rights.)

I do question whether that type of language, when used for our public officials, is corrosive to the institutions of the republic.

You will never hear me using that term for any public official. You may hear me say the elected official is incompetent, corrupt, or isn't doing his job (i.e., malfeasance, misfeasance, or nonfeasance). It's considerably more likely that you may hear me use specific descriptions of what he did wrong, since I think calling attention to what people did wrong is more effective than just saying bad things about them. Under certain circumstances I may call publicly for the removal of somebody via the ballot box in the next election, though I very rarely do things of that type. In the most extreme cases, you may even see me calling for the removal of the official prior to the end of his term by impeachment, recall, or other procedures.

All of those are legitimate ways to get rid of officials who should not be in office. Namecalling does nothing to get rid of the bad guy, and has the effect of promoting disrespect for the office.
