No. The bottom line is that everyone is doing the best he can at any given moment. Presidents are no different. No matter how dimly we view their acts and characters, each of them deserves respect for having tried. Even the abysmally incompetent, dishonest and ignorant Barack Obama deserves that measure of respect. He'll get it from me, or at least he will once he's out of office and no longer such a threat to the rest of us.
