Half of Americans now say
Gee, Looks like the boss really did know what he was talking about. Could it be that the most pwerful man in the world, with access to the most technologically advanced and largest information gathering networks in the world knew more than "Joe Typewriter" out to become the next Woodward and Bernstein? (Personally, I think overzealous anti-gummint journalists are a differently meaning "deep-throat" but thats for another post...)
Second issue: I'm sick and tired of the President being referred to ESPECIALLY by the media as "Mr. Bush" or just "Bush." Like him or not, he's our PRESIDENT. He's in charge. We don't have to blindly support him or his administration, but we should give him all due respect for the position he holds. He should be referred to as "President Bush," "The President," "The Commander in Chief," et cetera. To not show this very simple courtesy is not only disrespectful to him, it shows the world (yes, the whole frickin' blue marble) that you've no respect for the position. he should be esteemed, he should be put on a pedestal, form the masses, of the masses, but in charge of the masses and therefore, held in regard as above the masses.
If we don't respect the rank, who will?
