    Is Obama more of a celebrity than a president?

    He goes on Jon Stewart's show, The View, the cover of a Rolling Stone magazine, Oprah's show, ESPN, yet, he has given very few news conferences.  How can other world leaders take him seriously?

    He's younger and trying to do things to appeal to the younger demographic. Unfortunately, he's bring down the status of the office of the president in the process.

    I think presidents became pops stars with Clinton then not so much with Bush because he had a respect for the office that was more like what our founding fathers had.

    Then came Obama. To be honest, I don't think he respects the country much less her people so why would he respect the office he's been elected to hold.

    Older Americans expect a certain standard to be upheld by the man holding the office of the president. Younger Americans grew up with Clinton and Lewinski, who both brought down the prestige and status of the office dramatically. Bush brought that back some but the damage was done.

    In my opinion, Obama is doing all he can to destroy the American way of life and, as a result, destroying the status and prestige of his office. Hopefully, we'll fix that over the next two years and vote Obama out.
