Office disrespected

As a registered Republican, I made note of the cartoon clown image of President Obama that accompanied John Bolton's column “Exclusive to the Trib: Obama's foreign affairs radicalism carries a heavy cost” (Nov. 10 and TribLIVE.com).

It captured widely accentuated features and added a red bulbous nose, with the word “JOKE” in capital letters underneath it.

If this were drawn by a school child and spread on social media, what would be the fallout? Or what if the same child drew that image of our president and posted it on Facebook?

The terms “bullying” or “racism” come to mind.

We strive to teach our youth tolerance, as well as dignity and respect toward others.

While we may not respect our president's actions, I would hope the media would at least respect the office of the presidency. To do less is a disservice.
