Another pet peeve
September 11, 2009 - Pat Beck
I watched President Obama most recent news conference.
My opinion is that he is easy to listen to, yes, he speaks well.
What wasn’t easy for me to listen to, were the boos heard throughout his speech.
In my opinion, this was not a town hall meeting setting but an arena filled with elected representatives, who should display some level of decorum.
What I continued to observe, was many who acted like bored pre teens, rolling their eyes and pouting when the leader of the country was addressing them and the country. I can only hope that if any of them actually have pre teens that they don’t tolarate this type of behavior.
Yes, the “You Lie” comment bothered me, as well. The individual was called out on it, and apologized.
I was annoyed seeing texting going on.
I also know that this kind of behavior has not just reared its’ ugly head, and that in numerous previous Presidential speeches, there has been eye-rolling, non-attention and general lack of respect.
I have grumbled and complained numerous times when it comes to basic respect.
I have not changed my mind and believe that as a nation we've lost the importance of respecting others, whether they're Presidents we don't agree with or people we drive next to.
