Respect? Bush needs to earn it.

The House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) commented about Stephen Colbert’s closing keynote at the Washington Correspondents’ Dinner:

“I thought some of it was funny, but I think it got a little rough,” Hoyer said. “He is the president of the United States, and he deserves some respect.”

I respect the office of the President of the United States, but at this point Bush needs to earn any respect that he’s given. Just sitting in that chair doesn’t do it anymore. For a president who vowed to “restore integrity to the Oval office,” he’s sure done a damn crappy job of it.

I continue to stand by my earlier question: What has Bush done right? And I reach the same conclusion: nothing. Prove me wrong.
