Respecting the Office of the Presidency
Americans have a long history of Respecting the Office of the Presidency and will continue to do so as long as the President will have the same respect for that Office and the very Constitution he/she Swears to Uphold.
Respecting the President
History shows us that not all of our Presidents were respected by the people they Governed. Recent examples of Presidents who were disrespected are President Jimmy Carter, President Ronald Reagan, President George W. Bush and of course President Barack Obama.
No one President will ever enjoy the complete support of all Americans at any one time but one thing is for sure. Some will enjoy more success than others. The measure of this success can be measured by one simple yard stick, Re-Election.
While President Jimmy Carter was booted after his first term President Ronald Reagan enjoy a second term with a Land Slide Election that took 49 of our 50 States in his corner. President George W. Bush after taking years of criticism also won a Second Term as our President but with a slimmer margin of Victory. The Jury is still out on President Barack Obama but all indication are pointing to One Term.
History has shown us that Presidents are Re-Elected based on their Records while in Office. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush ran on a strong record of keeping us safe and prosperity. A Democratically Controlled House and Senate hurt President Bush’s record during his last two years in office and a Democratically Controlled House and Senate also hurt President Obama’s First term in Office thus giving us a worsening economy and fears of Big Government and Socialism.
Respect is something that must be Earned and neither President Carter nor President Obama have done anything to earn the Respect of the American People.
Thus, it is easy for this writer to predict a one term Presidency for Barack Obama.
Say Goodnight, Barack
