Why seek direction from anything on National Public Radio, one of the most liberal voices around? Rather than seeking loyalty to any president, Americans would do better to pledge loyalty to the U.S Constitution. It is the Constitution and Bill of Rights which govern our nations. The elected officials are merely servants of it. Both parties -- with the consent of the U.S. Supreme Court -- have stretched the meaning of the Constitution to the point where its authors would no longer recognize it. Remember that all those Constititional Law classes taken by future politicians are not meant to help them understand the Constitution (a grade school student can do that); those Constitution Law classes are designed on how to get around the Constitution. Our leaders have followed liberal academia, rather than the Founding Fathers, on their use of the Constitution.
By law, one has say that any president is our president. But that does mean that we have to have any respect for him beyond the office he holds. When obvious and outright liars (I use the plural there intentionally) hold the office, one does not have to give them any respect, other than for the sake of the office he holds.
