Maybe the people insisting that no one cheer the fact that an American President got rebuffed in bringing the Olympics to the United States ought not to have cheered when an American President got a shoe thrown at him in Iraq.

I mean, if you want to talk about respecting the Presidency, it helps to be consistent. But of course, it is worth mentioning anew that for some people, it is fine to have an Imperial Presidency just as long as Barack Obama is the Imperial President in question.
