    CNN Breaking News – the President of the United States put his feet on his desk!

    Who cares! People are just looking for reasons to criticize him.

    Get a grip! Is this really worth talking about? What about the Syrian situation. Look it up Gerald Ford has a picture of his feet on the desk in the oval office. Get a grip! Really?

      President Obama is shackled to and solving (in my opinion) some of the most profound problems that the free world has faced in decades. Let the man squat on his desk if he wants, while tackling all the problems that were created, in large measure, by the very same conservatives who are now critical of all things Obama. Get over it.

    This photo just feeds into the narrative of a President who has little respect for the office. It's always all about him and his wants and needs, and little about the dignity that the office represents.
    While putting his feet on his desk by itself is not the end of the world, it just adds more fuel to the notion that this guy is arrogant and disrespectful.

      I assume you have seen the pics of Bush and Ford with their feet up on the same desk??? Guess they had no dignity for the office either or was it OK for them to do it?

    Examples of RESPECT

    He has earned their respect.
    The soldier saluted as a sign of respect.
    Despite our differences, I have enormous respect for him.
    I have a great respect for his accomplishments.
    I expect to be treated with respect.

    Somehow, putting your feet on any furniture is purely a total lack of respect for those around you, yo
