Disagreeing with the president

Why do people get mad when others disagree with the president. Why does it feel like we're Anti-American if we don't agree with his policies? I don't care if we're talking about Bush or Obama and I'm not talking about insults. I mean true disagreement on policies, agenda etc. Last time I checked, its our RIGHT to disagree if we disagree and it is exactly what makes us American. Its how our country was founded, by disagreeing and acting out against the British.

  • "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
    are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and
    servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
    Theordore Roosevelt, 1918.

  • We can disagree with the president and not be disrespectful of the president. The president is the highest official of our nation and deserves to be treated with respect. This includes moron Bush. Just kidding about moron, or am I.

    Wrong. Respect is earned, it isn't an automatic.

  • Mr. Obama may be the president but that doesn't mean that he is not beyond the realm of criticism or disagreeing with.  when he becomes perfect come back and ask that question again and perhaps my answer will change.  However, you can disagree and still be respectful towards whom your disagreeing with.  Do it with style and grace.

  • Opposition is a Presidents worst enemy. One must silence all opposition in order to smoothly and slyly enact their agenda. If no one makes a big ruckus about it no one will even know about it.

  • People said the same with the last admin. If you didnt like him or his policies you should leave, or you didnt love America like they did.....Its not really new just equally annoying.
