Since his inauguration, President Barack Obama has had to endure indignities that no other President has had to tolerate. Granted, during the election cycle, certain things are always said that are not very endearing to the candidate. But once the election is decided the political bickering is expected to subside somewhat while the personal attacks should stop. In both cases, the Republican Party has increased their political attacks on the President while the personal attacks have continued.
The president has been in office less than two months and he has had to endure:
§ Zero Republican support for his economic plan.
§ An about face from a would-be Republican cabinet member.
§ The publication of a garish cartoon in a NY newspaper alluding to the president as a simian who has been shot by the police while making reference to his stimulus plan.
§ A sitting United States Senator (Richard Shelby R-SC) rehashing the already discredited notion of the president not being a citizen.
At this point, the political hijacking, character assassination and plain disrespect to the President of the United States must clearly stop. These antics are obstructionist at best, racist at worst. I shudder to think what lies in the future, but if I were the president, I would put an end to this right now!
