I'm not understanding the rules here. A few days ago a member got a point for something supposedly racist that wasn't racist at all. Now we have blatent, admitted trolling. Am I missing something?

So regularly it pains me to point it out old boy - but stick around - I like you in small doses

I have adopted the convention of referring to all presidents, past and present, with the title President and proper name. I think to do otherwise is a show of disrespect for the office.

I think you're right - I readily admit to using 'Dumya' and 'the idiot' but it is (and I'm serious here) rude and frankly, not very clever!

Whatever a President achieves, past or present doesn't warrant crass name tagging!

Caveat - I'm a Brit and he ain't my President

It's only 'moronic' when you use it EVERY time you post..............

No names - can't use the points but we all know who what where and when

Just Google 'Obammy' - I reckon the dudes name would come up

The progressives have a lot of names for President George W. Bush:

Dubya, Bushie, Shrub, Chimp, Smirky, Bushitler, Chickenhawk One, Hitlerburton, Chimpowitz, Rove's Puppet, Cowboy Hitlerstein, AWOL McPsycho, Bushollini, Cheney's Sock Puppet, Chimpy McDrunkard, Darth Moron, Toxic Texan, Dim Son, Drinky McCokeSpoon, Emperor Chimpatine, Fearful Leader, Herr Bush, Moron-in-Chief, and Satan's Monkey.

Yet, the Lefties around here have a problem with something as inocuous as "Obammy"?
Seems to me that there's a lot of catching up to do when it comes to Obammy.
