    I'm sure you haven't heard about it yet, but you will. This is why I'm so critical of Obama. This guy has no grace, no class at all.

    Obama committed a breech in protocol when he called the former president "George" at a ceremony unveiling his portrait at the White House today. He also took the time to say how terrible the economy was when he took office. He was supposed to mention something nice but that was the best he could do.

    Putz.

    Yea we all know how much Class Obamavider has. He's just took narcissistic to believe anyone thinks otherwise.

    JMO, I thought it was well done. Cracked me up when W talked about when times get tough that Obama could look at 43's picture and ask "What would George do?".

    Obama doesn't do protocol. Respect for the office he currently holds is as foreign to him as Kenya... oh wait. My bad.

    Obama thanked Bush for his help with the financial crisis, help with the transition, gave him credit for the killing of Osama Bin Laden and thanked him for the "Sports Package".

    Bush was pretty gracious as well..and made reference to Laura being the best first lady..then stopped himself and asked if his mom would accept a tie.

    Good ceremony overall..and pretty "gaffeless".

    Hell. He'll probably rehang it in the shitter.

    Loads of incentive to take a big dump.

    Swallow.....former presidents are to be addressed always as "Mr. President".

    And you aren't a very good host if you feel you have to bring up what you think your guest did wrong.

    But I guess being a Dick is all Obama can do....even though he tried to make it sound inconspicuous.
