    of the president is always done.  It's not a sign of disrespect.  

    If I think he is being weak in his leadership, how else am I supposed to say it?

    I don't tell say he needs to "grow some balls," or even more disrespectful and because of his ethnicity, racially charged remarks.  (ie telling Reid to "grow some balls" is disrespectful but not racially charged.)

    I have actually censored myself from making a certain analogy to what I see happening because is could be racially misconstrued.

    But if I cannot use terms as "weak" or "naive" (and a plethora of other words found in a Thesaurus to mean the same thing)  to express and communicate what I see and feel is happening or has happened, then I cannot criticize the president at all, any president.

    I will not use racially charged language, but if I feel his is being a weak leader, I will say so, in those terms.
