Stuff so ridiculous, you couldn't even make it up.
MSNBC wonders: Is it disrespectful to call Obama “Obama”?
Ask Bill Clinton or George Bush about that. If I recall lefty blogging circa 2006 correctly, Dubya was some sort of chimpanzee who’d evolved into Hitler. If you ever watched five minutes of Olbermann, you know how “respected” the president was on this network; if you’ve watched five minutes of Matthews or O’Donnell or Martin Bashir, you know how respected President Romney would have been. (Here’s a clue.) Strong partisans have been loathing presidents from the other party since forever, and they reliably develop amnesia afterward about just how much loathing there was. If calling Bush “Bush” is okay but calling Obama “Obama” isn’t, then you’re copping to a double standard for Bambi.
