Bad Behavior At Nascar

Today the wives of the president and vice president attended at Nascar race in order to help support our troops.  Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were booed by the spectators at the event.  

They were there to bring attention to the fact that many troops have a difficult time finding work after returning home after a tour of duty or once they have finished their service.  An issue that should give most of us pause. 

I remember when Bush was still in office and the outright disrespect that was shown him by the left and I felt nothing but shame because of it.  I had my issues with how President Bush did his job and the decisions that he made while president.  He wasn't perfect and he made mistakes.  But, that never justified the treatment that he received.  The cheering that came from the media and the left when someone in Iraq threw a shoe at him during a press conference was terrible.  It was amazing display of disrespect for our country and our president and didn't deserve to be cheered.  

One of the things that I had always hoped when President Obama took office is that the right would lift up the level of dialogue in our country.  Set a standard for dissent if you will.  Sadly, the display today says that we were unable to accomplish that.  

Dislike the policies of the president.  Disagree with the beliefs that Michelle Obama holds.  But treat the office with the respect that it deserves.  The office of the presidency is bigger than one person.  America will survive the policies of President Obama.  What is really going to be the death knell of America is lack of respect for each other.  Debate and dissent is healthy, disrespect is not.  

Save your booing, and show your displeasure at the ballot box where it belongs.

A number of segments on the right probably do behave better.

But if you are expecting Miss Manners-level behavior from NASCAR, 'yer askin' fer trouble!"

Don't say that to The Conservative Lady, she is a big Nascar fan.

I listened to the vid, and it sounded like there were more people NOT booing than those who booed. So yes, you could very well have been in that crowd.

I just barely heard the boos. If America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, survives the Obama presidency we'll be awfully lucky. I don't think that either being disrespectful or being respectful will be our downfall. It will be the tyrannical policies instituted by progressives on both sides of the aisle which causes America's downfall.

president downgrade and his beard show no respect to this country or any non black group, so it will be a cold day in hades before I pretend to respect them. The office is fine, plenty of cleaning staff take care of it. Face it, they were ONLY there to try and drum up votes (on our dime) from a group they have dissed in the past. Hiding behind a military family they don't give a shit about is typical.

And I am not so sure the country will survive this commie jackass and his merry band of outlaws.
